Every year we shout, "Happy New Year!" and begin to consider our New Year's Resolutions. Here are the top ten resolutions, as recorded by Time Magazine:
- Lose Weight and Get fit
- Quit Smoking
- Learn Something New
- Get out of Debt and Save Money
- Spend More Time with Family
- Travel to Knew Places
- Be Less Stressed/Stop Yelling
- Volunteer More
- Eat Healthier
- De-Clutter and Get Organized
This year I am going to resolve to stop yelling! It's not on Time's Top Ten List, but it's at the top of mine!
I don't yell all of the time. I do yell enough to know I need to stop. With five kids the volume in our house is
This seems like an achievable goal for me. I will admit it will be hard during the winter. With the windows shut, I am not afraid to unleash the beast because the neighbors won't hear me.
Now what to do instead of yelling? I'll probably go back to the old time out chair. As the boys have gotten older, I stopped doing this. I know they won't want to sit for 5, 6, and 8 minutes, respectively. On bad days, they may have to sit there half the night. Maybe that will work. I think I may implement this first and see how it goes. Don't fail me now, Supernanny. Now since I've put it up there feel free to keep me in check, friends.
What are your New Year's Resolutions. What are you going to do to reach your goals? I see some of the non-lame are voting. Let me know what you think.
PS. Fatty, (me) will resume the healthy eating again, too. I thoroughly enjoyed eating until I puked these past two months. I will miss cookies and chocolate and pepsi.
