The Crazy Suburban Mom: So are you sick of my resolutions yet?

So are you sick of my resolutions yet?

Maybe it's just that I've never done this before or maybe it's just that there's so much I need to do differently....But I've been giving the resolution thing a crazy amount of thought. At least it seems like it to me.

Seems there are things I do daily that I need to change. Like this...

I get up ridiculously early. Like, so early it's practically yesterday and than I get online and write because I don't prewrite my posts.

After I post it gets a little fuzzy... I putz around the house figuring out what I'm going to make for dinner (and at this point it's still early. Dark even)... If I need something at the grocery store I'll write a list. Eventually I'll clean or do laundry.

General housewifery...


But I get all distracted and by the time I have to go out (hours later) I'm pretty much still in my after dinner pants. Oh, after dinner pants are pretty much elastic waisted, grungy, not to been seen by the public, usually with holes in them pants. I put them on after I eat dinner when I'm not intending to go out anymore... And if I don't change into pajamas, after dinner pants work just fine.

The problem is I'm so scattered during the day by the time I actually have to go out and do something I'm still in those same after dinner pants and frequently so pressed for time that I'm running to the grocery store - or the post office - or where ever - in my (Oh, what must the neighbors think...) after dinner pants.

And I think I wore after dinner pants the entire time I didn't have a car.

Anyway...

So (yet) another resolution is to actually get dressed at my earliest convenience. Like not so's I wake anyone... And actually get in a tub and bathe....And even ya know, brush my teeth and than get dressed. I've also promised myself I'd even put on a tinted moisturized, Lashblast mascara (if only on the top lashes) and Outlast Lipstain. At least.

Because if I wait till I actually have to go out later I'm going to be so rushed - Well, lets not go there but it will involve much less than this and my after dinner pants.

As to other resolution I made about listing stuff on Etsy and eBay? You know I bought a lot of stuff to actually DO projects and never really did them. So I had to decide if I just wanted to sell the supplies or make things....This morning I made two things and how proud do I feel at the moment? Very, actually...

I made two key fobs using the cotton webbing that you would normally use but most people sew trim to them but since I have all those buttons.... And do not sew...

And one button on the flip side...

And in another color too...

I think they came out really cute!

Sewing through that cotton webbing is no picnic but I love the way they look and hopefully they will sell. The fobs seem popular on Etsy although a lot of people are doing them... But most people are adding fabric - So I don't know how only adding the buttons will go over...

I think they are pretty cute.

Anyway. I know this post is very, very late and haven't visited anyone today. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be back to my regular schedule!

Oh, those are very cute, Tracy. I haven't made any resolutions yet. Well, I mean, other than to lose the 10 lbs I've gained this year, but I think everyone is doing that.

Hiya Lin! Nice to talk to you today! And yeah, those stoooopid 10 pounds right???? I will say I'm glad I started dieting in July, at least I feel a bit ahead of my game this year which is way different. But I have so far to go...sheesh. It feels never ending it really does!

AAAaaaaahhhh! The after dinner pants! I know those well!

I used to call them after work pants because the minute I came home I would put them on. Now I'm nearly always in those....so comfortable...so ugly!

I'm sure I mentioned that I'm a total fan of showering and getting dressed every single morning. I simply cannot accomplish anything in my pajamas.

And I never leave the face without eye makeup. That's because I have chubby cheeks and look like my eyes are squinty if I don't put on eye makeup. lol.

Let me know how getting dressed works out for you. :)
