10 Things I Have No Intention of Changing in 2013

I aspire to be a more regular blogger in 2013...and one of my favorite blog challenges is the Monday Listicles over at The Good life. The ever fabulous Stasha is challenging us to make a list of 10 things we have no intention of changing in 2013. I love this idea...I always have ideas for things I want or need to work on, but taking stock of things that I'm just not gonna be working on...there's a list I can get done!

10 THINGS I HAVE NO INTENTION OF CHANGING IN 2013
1. Gluten Free.  When we started we thought it wouldn't hurt to try it out. Now it's just a part of us.

2. My addiction to Glitter in all it's glorious forms. Not in 2013 or ever.

3. The cleanliness of my mini van. No matter how much I clean it somehow it always looks like a slovenly family of raisin eating super hero obsessed hobbits occupy it. OK, maybe not hobbits - they'd be cleaner with cooler rugs and better chairs. Maybe raisin eating super hero obsessed gollums. I'm throwing in the towel on this problem until my preeecioussesss are a mite bigger with better eye hand coordination.

4. My exercise routine...or lack thereof. The only reason I would join a gym right now is so I can take a nap while the boys hang in the daycare. Hey, that's not a bad idea...

5. Honeycrisp Apple Hoarding. They cost more, but they taste oh-so-much better. I hide them just for me, since they boys literally don't care what kind they eat, and have been known to take three bites before declaring they are full of apple.

6. Getting excited over little things. I like the details. I like an extra layer of paper, glitter, googly eyes, and I will paper piece tiny owl balloons if I want to...and it will make my heart happy!

7. Facebook and Instagram. I love them. I'm keeping them. I'm posting. It's fun.

8. My garden. I let the strawberry plants take over my garden last year. This year I'm calling it a strawberry patch, going to the farmer's market, and joining a CSA. I am a terrible gardener. Oh well.

9. Sleep. I've been sleeping a lot more this last month while I was not well, which is causing my problem in number 10 to grow exponentially. And it's fabulous. I LOVE SLEEPING! I intend to do a lot more of it in 2013.

10. The fact that my To-Do list is always going to be longer than the time I can reasonably devote to it. That's ok, I'm quitting guilt. Tomorrow is another day - but these boys are not getting any smaller!

Here's to health and happiness in 2013, Stampin' Friends!

I love this list!!

Some things probably won't change though. The gollums don't actually move out. . .

And, if you figure out how to quit guilt, you should write a book, because you would then become a bazillionaire! (and I can say I knew you when!) LOL

Michelle It's called True Calm, a magnesium and amino acid supplement. I still know my list is longer than my entire body, but I no longer feel panicked about it. I feel a lot less stressed (and therefore productive) since I found it.

Fun post! I will search for Honeycrisp apples, just for me!

Great list! I'm digging the owls with birthday hats and balloons.

I so enjoyed your blog post! It made me smile and laugh. I LOVE your owl birthday card! Your boys are adorable---enjoy them cause they will grow up fast. I am a mom of 8 and can so relate to everything you wrote...I right there with you!
Keep bedazzling and blogging!

You go, girl. Love your sense of humor. Definitely smiled and giggled, especially at the slovenly family comment (in my car, it's goldfish crackers).

So impressed that glitter made this list--for me, it's a nemesis of sorts! Great list though. Funny too. Erin

Stacie @ Snaps and Bits said...

I'm with you on the Honey Crisps - yummy!

Stasha said...

Sleeping rules ( I wrote at nearly 2AM ) and one can never ever have too much glitter. It's gonna be a great year Wendy!
