I don't tend to do these because I suck at keeping them, but I was thinking about my life and what was making me miserable, and what I thought I could conceivably change.

My New Year's Resolution this year is to be a better friend.
Now because I need specifics, this involves:
ONLINE
- replying to all comments left on LJ, wall posts, @replies, DMs, emails.
- commenting on LJ posts, FB statuses, sending emails.

OFFLINE
- actually initiating contact with friends instead of vice versa
- actually initiating meetup with friends. Target - to see them at least 3 times this year.
- responding to all SMSes to their logical conclusion and not just leaving them.
- to see my friends for my birthday

BONUS RELATED RESOLUTION
- to make 1 new offline friend who lives in my area. How I'm going to go about this I'm unsure. This is not a priority.

Other things I would like to perhaps achieve this year
- take monthly photos of Tobias
- read 50 books
- join a boxing class and get fit, target weight 50kg, (okay, seriously, I'm 53kg now, it's not much of a target)
- keep the house clean enough that I don't have to delay people when they drop by

Good luck to me.

- This being a SAHM to two kids thing is hard, but not impossible.
- Toby is a giant kid, he's fat and is in the top 10% for both height and weight.
- I think he's fat because he eats a lot and I think he eats a lot because he has reflux issues, so I'm trying to cut dairy from my diet to see if it will help.
- OMG EVERYTHING I EAT HAS DAIRY IN IT.
- Our Christmas was good, was at my in laws - 22 adults, 11 kids, went home with a car full of presents.
- Toby had his one month Vietnamese celebration thing, and that was nice and low key and my mother did everything, cooked and cleaned and paid $300 for a large roast pig and everything. This is how I know she loves me even if she talks a lot of shit. That and she bought me 5kg worth of cherries.
- I feel majorly burnt out with the whole holiday season + newborn + toddler thing and haven't been paying any attention to Adam and I think it's really really starting to depress him. Especially the whole no sex thing, since I haven't been to my 6 week checkup yet post baby.
- I need to find time to express milk so I can go see The Hobbit. I'm also burnt out because I can't go anywhere without Toby and it's starting to do my head in, and I get upset that Adam can just go play 18 holes of golf with no issues. (He doesn't do this regularly, his family came from overseas and wanted to play, he's not an asshole, he's taken Toby out on all his errands today to give me some space) But the unfairness really does bother me.
- I'm sure there was more but I'm going to try clean the house while watching Season 2 Teen Wolf so that my house is clean for New Years.
