Today is the first day of school for my girls. Usually they start before Labor Day but since there is a lot of construction going on in the school district the start was pushed back. I like it when they start sooner because they are excited about the first day and in June they will be ready for school to be over as soon as possible.
One day last week my eldest daughter commented to her sisters that "next Tuesday is our first day of school" to which I replied "that will be the best day of my life." The little girls were confused by that statement. Laurel said that I need more excitement in my life, which of course is true.
I have decided that today would be a good day to make resolutions. It seems like a better time than Jan. 1st. I have decided that I will try to do some exercise and at least one bit of housework every day. The exercise is really needed to get off the pounds I gained this summer from going out to lunch with the girls far too often. The housework, well, um, well, I just loathe. So I have decided if I try to do at least one householdy thing a day perhaps it won't be so overwhelming when I have to clean for an event.
I have already, unloaded the dishwasher, cleaned up the breakfast dishes and payed bills. The exercise, I haven't decided about yet. Maybe I can do a few sit-ups while I watch tennis. I know what you are thinking, is this really her best day ever, cleaning , exercising and watching tennis? Well, probably not but there is definitely something to be said for a few hours of quiet to do what ever I want.
Are any of you making school-year resolutions?
