My expectations for 2013

Posted on: December 31, 2012

Every year, around this time, I try to write out my resolutions, or expectations, for the following year.

In 2013, I’m going to turn 33.  M will turn 2.  I will be married for 3 years.

I want to see some changes in 2013.. these are my expecations:

I want to retake control of my life.  In 2011, I became a mom.  In 2012, I spent all year trying to figure out what being a “mommy” really means and how it fits into my life.  In 2013, I want to see if I can bring back a little bit of myself while balancing my “mommy” self.  Now some can argue that my “mommy” self is who I am now.  But, I don’t know.  I want to regain a sense of myself outside of my motherhood.  Meaning, I want to be able to redo my wardrobe and fill it with things that are more “me” instead of things that are just easy because I have to chase a toddler, or avoid vomit.  I want to regularly get mani/pedis or massages, just think about me a little bit more than I have been lately.

I want to reorganize and utilize all the space in our apartment.  I like our apartment.  It’s got tons of space that we have not taken advantage of.  I want to reorganize how we have M’s toys.  I want to reorganize the craft space.  I want to utilize the storage units we have so we can have more space.

I want to save money.  I have to start thinking about things on a WANT/NEED basis.  It’s just good practice, especially if we want to eventually get out of this apartment eventually.

I want to blog everyday.  The plan is to try to have an entry everyday.  I’ve done well these past few months.  I think I can keep this going.

I want to start up my Etsy shop again.  I want to get my craft blog active again.  I want to be able to find the time to sit at my craft table and just create.  I want to bring back the Etsy shop so I can use that money to fund the hobby.

These are my expectations for 2013.  I’ll take it one day at a time and I hope that at the end of next year, I can look back and say that I lived up to these expectations..
