New Year's Resolutions

Every year I make the joke that this year I resolve to NOT have a New Year's Resolution.  But actually, this year I am going to try not complaining and whining and choosing to be happy and pleasant.  Yikes!  Wish me luck!  It's most likely going to be a hectic year.  With law school applications, possibly moving, looking for work, and a toddler to potty train, I'm not sure how well I'm going to be able to stick to my resolution!  But, I resolve to try!  haha!

I've been tagged...

OK, six things about me you don't know...

1 - I am still afraid of things under my bed.  It's true.  Pathetic, huh?  Randal and I have started watching Ghost Hunters and the truth is:  I am really pretty afraid of ghosts, but I have been trying to face my fears.  So, we watch these silly shows - of course, the lights have to be on, I have to have my computer in front of me so I can distract myself if I need to, and I have to have Randal or Israel close by.  Afterwards, if I have to get up and go anywhere, I make sure to take a big step or jump off the bed or couch so that nothing can get me!!!

2 - I wish that I had a better decorating eye.  I am pretty much the most unoriginal person when it comes to decorating my house.  I can copy almost anything, but I just can't seem to decorate very well.  My house is pretty plain.

3 - I've always wanted to teach Gospel Doctrine or Relief Society or the Temple Prep class, but I have never had any of those callings.  Sad.

4 - I've always thought it would be fun to go "granola" - you know, all organic, yoga-like.  I'd live in Sundance or Sedona and teach yoga and wear Birkenstocks.  hehehehe.

5 - I love being a girl.  Kind of on the flip side of the last one.  I love dressing up and wearing heels and make-up and sparkling jewelry.  I'm a bit of a romantic.

6 - My Christmas decorations are still up.  [Hangs head in shame]

Six things you do know about me:

1 - I love my friends and family.  I love being surrounded by them and laughing and talking and sharing our lives.

2 - I love my Macbook.  'nuff said.

3 - I hate to clean.  Sure, I love the outcome of a clean house, but I HATE the work I have to put unto getting there.

4 - I am a closet organize freak.  I mean I do organize my closets and cupboards, and files, but you'd never know it because although my closets and cupboards and files are all immaculate.  My house is not.  (That might be something you don't know about me then...)

5 - I'm pretty much an open book - what you see is what you get.  It was hard to think of things that people don't know about me because I really don't have any secrets.  I always try to tell the truth and you can ask me anything and expect an answer.  Much to the embarrassment of my family sometimes.

6 - I don't update my blog as much as I should!

OK, now if you are reading this and haven't done this yet...  I tag YOU!!!!
