New Month’s Resolution for July

It’s a new month, and time for a new resolution. Last month I resolved to cut up that extra fabric and get a head start on my Christmas stockings. I cut out about 50, which is about 1/3 of the job. Not too bad. The great thing about these resolutions is that they are just for one month, and I can forget about it now, and stop beating myself up for not finishing it.

This month will be busy enough with traveling and unpacking, finding the local shopping areas, locating the chapel on post, and just figuring out how to get from Point A to Point B. But I still think I can squeeze in a simple resolution. This month I’m going to get Pete a new bed and transition him into it. Usually, I just get a real twin size bed when it’s time for the baby to give up the crib, but his room will still need to fit the crib for the new addition. A regular bed will take up too much room, so I think a toddler bed will be best. There’s no way I’d buy a new one, especially since I see them for sale used all the time. I’ll have to be patient, and maybe do a little extra leg work – possibly even go out early on a sultry Saturday morning and hit some yard sales. Or I’ll just pray that the thrift shop on post had a nice one donated and I’m the lucky first person to spot it.

That’s it for me. Have you got a new month’s resolution? Nothing too challenging – it’s summer break after all. Let me know!

  1. Oh yikes, Michelle, why didn’t you say something at my house? I have a perfectly good (if perfectly dusty) toddler bed in the garage, now that Little Brother is too big for it!

  2. Hmmm …. I need to think of one. Thanks for the challenge.

  3. Ask for one of Freecycle! Lots of folks have them just sitting around, as they have a short life span.

  4. I want to relax every day in my flowers with a book and iced tea, just like I always imagine I will while planting all the flowers. Usually my “to-do”list sucks my summer away. This month, for 20 minutes a day, I am going to enjoy the fruits of my labor.

  5. Michelle, when you get a chance, let me know how much you charge for the stockings. All our soldiers are deployed this year, as you know, and I’ll pitch them to the FRG ladies if you like. I have the one you sent last year as a sample. πŸ™‚ Then I’ll mail it off to my beloved!

  6. Mmm. A monthly resolution. You don’t do FlyLady, do you? πŸ™‚I think mine will be to try to cycle my laundry at least once per weekday, so that my Sundays can truly be a day of rest. Right now it just stacks up and Sunday’s the only day I have to tackle it, so every time I go to confession I have to mention it. It’s usually ‘necessary work’ by the time I get to it, but more careful time management would prevent that.Thanks for the idea!
