#1: Read an average of 2 books/month and 3 classics.

My husband was so nice to buy me a Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas and I am in LOVE! It has significantly better battery life and allows me to backlight it when I’m sitting on the dark end of the couch.
* Virtues of Oxygen- Susan Schoenenberger
*Re’And- Victoria Easter Wilson
* Collected Works Vol. 1- Mary Oliver (Poetry)
I was terrible about attending book club, which is unfortunate because it’s such a lovely list of ladies. I hope to better about making it a priority in 2015. It’s been more difficult now that it’s not the same day of the month.
#2: Pay more attention to how my children “tick” (…)-
I’m not sure if I’ve succeeded in this or that my children have become more assertive in their differences and strong in their personalities. Just recently I’ve found the secret to comforting Bear (she is a bit more “sensory sensitive” and a TIGHT hug works wonders). I’ve found sure fire ways to cheer them up, make them laugh, engage their interest and pinpointed their strengths and weaknesses. Does that mean I’ve got it down? Hell no! A work in progress as is anything else in life…
Royal suckbomb. Moving on…
#8: Continue to build and flex my culinary muscles (…)
Hmmm. I’m not a master chef, but I have constantly been creating new things. Let’s see, there was the night that kids asked for 2nds of cabbage rolls. CABBAGE ROLLS! There was the wonderful indian meal complete with naan that tasted like it came straight from the restaurant; the delicious currant jelly meatballs that now top my husband’s list; and don’t forget the fact that I not only got my husband to try brussel sprouts (my favorite veggie) but he LIKED it! Oh yes, there have been some utter failures and the kids hated a great deal of it including the couscous, but you’re bound to have that.
I’m not sure yet what my goals are for this year. I will be sharing them here once I’ve had a chance to solidify them. I would love to hear what’s on your list to help inspire me!
