In Which I Describe My Non-Resolutions

I didn't make any new years resolutions. So, do you want to hear how I'm doing on my non-resolutions?

1. De-clutter / Organize. A mania for this type of activity occurs a few times year for me. Post-Christmas is a huge one. The stuff: it must go. Only hitch so far is that things are not actually de-cluttered when they're still sitting in my bedroom in bags. Sure, they're in bags and ready to go, but they're not, you know, gone.

2. Eating better. Check. We've had salmon two times in the last two weeks. How much healthier can we get? I kid, I kid. Still, I've noticed some improvement in our eating habits. Of course, compared to the holidays, how could it not improve?

3. Exercise. Nope. Except for walking the dog around the yard (she's ever vigilant about squirrels, 'possums, and goodness knows what else) and a little Wii playing (I rarely get a turn. And anyway, even the five year old is closer to making pro than I am), I have not been exercising.

4. Writing. Not a word. I've hit a research snag and that is serving as an excuse not to do anything in this respect.

5. Spiritual life. I've read my Bible every day. I'm trying to be more deliberate about my prayer life. We've re-started family devotions at the supper table. (Not every night, I must admit). This is the one non-resolution I don't want to let slide.

Now I'm off to referee a game of bowling. What? You didn't know that bowling requires refs? It does at our house.

I have fond memories of family devotions at the supper table. Ask Prince Charming if he remembers "Charlie Impson"!

Are you kidding?? I remember the days of refereeing! That is DEFINITELY exercise! :)

I've decided to start the new year in February. At least in terms of resolutions. But everything on your list except writing will need to be one mine two.

Decluttering, yep I'm working on that one, too. And I think it does count if it's in a bag! (Can you tell that's all the further I've gotten, too!)
