It’s a time of reflection and goal setting. Making New Year’s resolutions is a constant theme starting in January.
Instead of over-achieving and making ridiculous goals, I got together with my co-host Dana Peller from Soflo Moms On The Go to come up with resolutions we’re not making this year.
You can check out her post here on 5 New Year Resolutions She Won’t Be Making!
1. I’m Not Going To Stop Hanging Out With Rose’
That’s right! It’s for my own sanity. I’ve told you all in CarLine Conversations that I’m in 4th grade again. Division, multiplication, and algebra are kicking my ass. It’s being taught from another dimension (Stranger Things reference). When I get done trying to show my daughter how to do old fashion division and she’s screaming at me that’s not how you do it. Well. then I go to my best friend Rose’.
2. I’m Not Going To Text You Back Right Away
The text strings or texts groups are like having a neighbor knock on your front door every 5 minutes. I’m already distracted enough and when I stop and start something 100 times a day to send you a poop emoji, then my mommy brain kicks in.
3. I’m Not Going To FOMO
If I got upset about all the stuff I didn’t get invited too or events I decided to say no too, I’d be a lunatic. There is always another Girl’s Night Out, a birthday party to celebrate and restaurant tasting to attend.
4. I’m Not Going To Workout Every Day.
I just can’t!
5. I’m Not Going To Make Chicken Nuggets, Spaghetti and Meatballs and Taco Tuesday Anymore.
Aren’t you ready for some adult dinners? I just can’t do it anymore. This may seem a little drastic so maybe once a week or every other. Ok! Maybe that’s a little irrational. Just not every week.
6. I’m Not Going To Feel Guilty When I Leave My Kids In Aftercare.
It was their idea, not mine. Apparently, they dine on ice cream on Fridays. Homework gets done and they are exposed to the playground one more time that day. Besides, it’s only 2 days a week and I get some work done. What more could you ask for?
7. I’m Not Going To Do Laundry More Often
I literally do laundry when I can. It sits in the basket because no one wants to ever put anything away in my house. It’s exhausting. Finally, I stopped doing my husband’s laundry and he ran out of underwear the other day. Guess what? He did his own laundry.
