I was the epitome of procrastination and lazy during the month of February. Sure, I can blame it on prepping students for state assessments and finding out I will be teaching 1st grade next year (shudder), but that’s not good enough. I really don’t have a reason at all. I was just lazy. I did horribly with my resolutions and really didn’t know if I would ever want to show my face on this blog again. But, with my loyal 2 followers, I knew I could not let them down.
So, I am back…
For kicks and giggles let’s take a look at my resolutions and give myself a grade for February.
Work out 3x a week (this can be taking the dog(s) for a walk, yoga DVD, etc.)- F
Drink at least 3 cups of water a day- D
Have at least $3000 in our regular savings account (we are starting out with about $1000)- D
Keep my checkbook balanced- F
Eat at home 5x a week (This could go in the health category, but we do it more for money reasons. When we eat at Mom and Dad’s on Wednesday nights, I am counting that, since we are not going out and buying our dinner.)- C
Create and keep up with a chore chart (This will involve my husband as well)- C
365 52 day photo challenge (This will be featured on this blog and there will be more details to come)- F
Read at least 2 books a month- F
Blog at least 4 times a week- F
Finish my wedding scrapbook- F
Go to church on a regular basis- F
Start and keep up with a prayer journal- F
Now that’s a report card no one would want to show their parents. Let me reiterate… I was lazy! Again, no excuse… I wish I had some grand story to tell you about how I was out saving little baby bunnies and that time got away from me, but alas, I was just lazy.
Because I don’t want to ruin my self-esteem with these grades (teachers, are you laughing?), I will spin it so that I feel better about myself and my parents won’t come knocking at the door demanding answers to the previous grades…
Being lazy- A
Not reading a thing- A
Watching a lot of mindless television- A
Letting the house slowly become a mess- A
Not scrapbooking or crafting- A
Acting like I don’t know what a fruit or veggie is- A
Pretending I didn’t know how to shoot a camera- A
Now, look at all those As. Don’t I feel better about myself? Yeah, not really.
I guess the point of this post is to let you know I am still alive and kicking and it’s time for me to step it up and get back on track.
I should be back soon and hopefully I will have some better news about my resolutions. Until then, I hope I am the only slacker and the rest of you (2 followers) are kickin’ butt!
