Happy New Year, everyone!

Hubby dearest got me a new laptop as a birthday&anniversary present, so I hope to update more in the coming months (well, at least until the baby comes, at which point I'd rather spend any free time sleeping than on the computer).

Now I'm not one for resolutions, so I'm not gonna call these that, but here are a list of things I would like to accomplish in the next year:
- Eat healthier. This means less junk food, more fresh and preferably organic food. More fruits and veges too.
- Drink more water. Notice I said water, not liquid. I take in plenty of liquids a day in the form of juice and soymilk, but I haaaaaaaaaaaaaate water. So I'm going to bump up my water intake (slowly, lol) to at least 6 glasses a day.
- Find more time for myself. I need to feel less guilty about taking some time to myself. Half an hour a day is plenty...just enough to take a long shower, maybe read a chapter in a book. And I'm not talking about when the babies are sleeping either, because that's when I should be napping too. I'm talking about when other people are around to help take care of them for a little bit.
- Worry less. I'm a chronic worrier. I worry about everyone, all the time. Some rational, some...not so much. So, I'm going to consciously cut down on unnecessary worrying because frankly it's pretty tiring and its really pointless.
- Be better to the environment. This means no more forgetting to bring my reusable bags when going grocery shopping! This also means recycling (we used to this a lot in the States because its so convenient; I'm ashamed to admit I don't know where the recycling center for my area is). And of course, continue cloth diapering myself and the babies ;) Also, use less plastic! Stop wasting water! I can go on and on about this topic.
- Go to new places more often. Its hard to branch out to new, unfamiliar places (read: places where I don't know where the nearest baby changing area is), but I have to do this just to expose myself and the kids to new environments.

I'm sure I can think of more, but we're off to Aquaria now (see? I'm already starting on that last one!).
