Take more pictures. I'm usually really good at this but last year I hardly had the camera out at all, especially after I got pregnant. I'm hoping to recruit Jim on this one too so I actually appear in some photos with the new babe.
Use technology better. Although I love certain stone age practices like sending letters snail mail style and carrying a paper planner, I know I could put technology to better use. I want to get a better handle on technology in useful ways, like paperless statements from my bank and other accounts, keeping track of birthdays, and a better way to follow blogs I read regularly.
Get myself together. This probably sounds ridiculous but I don't want to fall into the mom in sweat pants trap. I could totally see it happening since I'm slowing slipping into a cozy oversized tshirt and sweats world as we speak. And once the baby comes I know my time will be limited, simple task may seem overwhelming, and my wardrobe will be in some kind of in between stage. But, I don't want that to mean a year from now I'm bumming around in tattered yoga pants with no bra at Target. I want to make an effort to get back into actually getting dressed and ready even when I have no real place to go. Just for for me.
Stay healthy. Over the last year I was fortune to have an abundance of time and energy to spend on myself. I know the demands of motherhood are going to cut into my personal time a bit, but I want to make sure that I keep exercise and healthy eating a priority for myself and my family.
Here's to a happy and healthy 2012!!!
