The start of a new year is always exciting. While I don't always set a 'New Year's Resolution', I am this year. I am going to be focusing on getting more organized and on losing some weight. Three children later and both are major areas of chaos in my life right now!
To become more organized, I am using scheduling charts for the kids and a daily/monthly planner for myself. I am also making a conscious effort to write things down as soon as I know about them. That planner doesn't work unless I actually put things in it!
As for the weight issue....I just feel gross lately. I'm not happy with the image in the mirror, so it is time to do something about it! No more cookies, no more cake, I am going to be making a conscious effort to drink more water and eat more healthfully.
What are your resolutions this year?

"My son is having the same issue but he is only 3 1/2 years old. He has been potty trained for almost a year and has never had an accident. Well, we brought our baby girl home in Feb. and that's when it started. We understand why he is having them but it is becoming very frustrating. We have been patient and have started to remind him to go potty....
The other day, my 5 year old daughter, Shari did something she hasn't done in well over two years. She wet her pants. While it really surprised me, I knew that it was important to handle it delicately. She is at a point now that things like this have the real potential to shame and embarrass her.
This year, Easter falls on April 20. I love Easter! It's one of my favorite holidays. There's so much fun stuff to do and egg hunts are just a small part of it all. Those cheap plastic eggs have other uses too. For instance, you can use them to play Easter Egg Bingo.
Well, three months after New Years Resolutions have been made, I'm betting that I'm not the only one who has been struggling with their 'losing weight/getting healthier' goal. I think the hardest part of any diet is just getting started.
I feel like it's been a really long time since I've shared a recipe with you all. The 'Taco Chop' is something that my husband came up with one day when he was playing around with making dinner. It was delicious and I knew you all would love to try something new also!
