facdeFriends I gotta tell you I am so tired. 2016 was a whopper of a year.
The twins have assumed their status as ,”The Terrible Two’s Duo,” the big girls have entered the wide world or organized travel sports, I started a new career and The Donald is about to take office.
Like I said…a whopper of a year.
Every year I make the obligatory New Year’s Resolutions and every single year I fail at them…miserably. Resolutions are really a positive thing though. It think they allow us to reflect on our lives and attempt to make necessary changes. Even if we fall of the horse, (or in my case fall off of the horse and get trampled to a bloody pulp,) they are still a healthy and reflective component of personal growth.
This year I am resolving…with a twist. there will be no diet, exercise, less swearing and drinking, more church kind of resolutions. I have been there and failed those. This year I am letting go of the things that are just not productive nor conducive to my life.
The motto of 2017 is….Buh-bye mom guilt! This is the year I revoke my coveted mom titles.
The first title that I am throwing out of the window is Keeper of the Shopkins…and Legos…and Random Nonsense. I have been holding onto this bad boy for way too long.
“Mom! Where is my Lego girl with the brown hair?”
“Mom! I can’t find that picture that I drew three months ago, where IS IT!?”
“Honey do you know where my tan socks are?”
You know what guys? I probably do know where all this crap is, but I am not going to tell you. I am all done enabling the laziness of this family. Here is a thought….go look for it. If that doesn’t work then go ask your dad. I will no longer be responsible for keeping track of these menial objects in your life. They are not important…clearly! I mean you lost them so how vital can they really be? If you were neglectful with your tiny trinkets and lost them then the natural consequence is YOU LOST THEM. Do not even think about asking me to replace them. If you want a new Shopkin then do some damn chores and buy them yourselves.
What can I say… I am a quitter. Click HERE to read the rest of my “Quit List.”
