New Year's Resolution 2014-Do My Best

In 2014, I resolve to...

Do my best to lose some weight
I know, I know, typical resolution.  But it's here nonetheless.  I'm not establishing any specific goals, just going to do my best to eat better and exercise.  We'll see what happens.

Do my best to go with the flow
I have a feeling 2014 is going to throw the planner in me for a loop.  We're headed into foster care for goodness sake!  That's a guaranteed bundle of unpredictability and unknowns.  I'm going to try my best to just roll with things.

Do my best to remain calm
This year is gonna be nuts.  No denying. We don't even have a placement yet and I'm already freaking out a bit.  But that doesn't do anyone any good, so...deep breaths.

Do my best to be a good mom
I don't know how to be a mom.  Normally you get to figure it out one day at a time from a fresh start with a tiny, brand new human being, with lots of free meals and no obligation to even leave your house for six weeks if you don't want to.  I'll get to figure it out with a couple hours notice and a couple days off, with possibly a not-so-tiny human being (or two) that does a whole lot more than eat, sleep and cry. I'll launch into being Insta-Mom and it might be pretty shabby at first. But all I can do is my best!

Wishing you a beary happy new year!
