I blame Myndi for this!

An amazing woman, upon whom I proudly pin 'bestie' status, has stepped up to the plate and it's time for me to do the same. That's right. It's New Years Resolution time. Don't freak out! Breathe with me. *hee hee, whooo. hee hee, whooo* Use that lamaze training. Good? Good. Now somebody slap me cuz I'm beginning to hyperventilate.
*5 minutes later...*
Shall we? Ok, let's get this over with.

ONE) I will be more active. Walking the dog, hiking with the family, dancing with my kids. Heck, even walking up and down the stairs a few more times each day.
Notice I didn't say the E word? That's cuz it's evil!

2) I will keep the kitchen sink free of dirty dishes. I admit it; I am not exactly the type-A, OCD, clean-freak kind of housekeeper I very much look up to. (Yes, Jamie, I'm talking about you.) I struggle with keeping up with the dishes and laundry about, um...99% of the time. What? Don't judge me! My fingers just like yarn better than dirty dishes...and my mind is too busy counting stitches to remember the clothes I put in the washer...yesterday. *clears throat while intently examining her slippers* Anyhow...while we're on the subject...

3) I WILL complete each and every crochet project I've started and abandoned. Honestly, this will probably be the hardest one...I've got about 20 blankets and a few hats waiting to be finished. Wait, can I take this one back? No. Emily, you will do this! Eeeeeeeee! *huff, puff, huff, puff* SLAP

Don't we feel better now? Sure, our knees may be shaking and our cheek a little red but it's out there and we can't take it back.

I need to go crochet something now.

Great blog! I have a blog too, but I don't get a chance to update it often. I have a nearly 3-year-old daughter.

I am also a freelance writer and I'm working on three parenting books. I need more writers to help with some of the chapters. If you're interested, email and I'll get you some details!
