this year, I will…

On this cold and gray January 3rd, I hereby make my New Year’s resolutions for 2008.

–I will work on the muffin top. Which is, after three kids, more like an entire souffle hanging down over my waistband.

–I will actually get down on the floor with my kids and play Rescue Heroes, or Diego Animal Rescue, or Killer Whale Rescue, or K’Nex Space Rescue. I’m not talking every day. I mean at all. This year. That would be good.

–I will stop finishing my kids’ dinners. Even when it’s Annie’s Bunny Macaroni.

–I will spend more time interacting with actual, real female friends, than I do with the anonymous frenemies on

–I will get Maddie to sleep through the night. Since she will be 14 months old by December 31, 2008, I am hoping that’s not setting the bar too high.

–I will do, like, five Kegels, at some point this year. Maybe even in January, and five more in June or so. I will also remember to take my vitamin at least once a month. (Like I said, I don’t want to set the bar TOO high.)

–I will see a movie. At a movie theater. And my children will not be with me. (A mom’s gotta dream.)

What are you going to do in 2008?
