I don’t like making resolutions. Never have, probably never will. I just feel like a year is too long a period of time to decide how I’m going to behave for the entirety, yanno? If you’re into resolutions, awesome, good for you, more power to ya.

I do, however, like making lists. To do lists, shopping lists, shit-I-need-to-have-in-my-life lists. That’s why I’m not entirely sure why it never occurred to me to make a List of Shit To Do In {insert year here}, at the beginning of said year. BUT. That’s what Terra did with her Do It list and I like it (and her) so I’m copying her idea.

Here we go!

Awesome (or necessary) things I’m going to mother-effing do in 2013:

    I’ve already said I’m going multiple times, but registration opens Monday and I’m posting it here so now it’s The Truth, right? Besides, I need more of this in my life:


    This isn’t my photo, and for the life of me I can’t remember who actually took it (sorry!) but I know it wasn’t me.

    And also, fuck, this is the last BiSC ever.

    Since before I even turned 18, I’ve wanted a tattoo. My big brother even made me an appointment as my 18th birthday gift, and I CHICKENED OUT. It’s more like I’m too indecisive and couldn’t decide what I wanted or where I wanted it. But this is the year. I’m open to suggestions.

    I’ve spend so much time over the past… years?… worrying about making other people happy that I completely lost my own happiness. Shit has kind of hit the fan recently, and I know it’s at least partially due to the fact that I stopped putting myself first. Um, if I don’t treat myself well, how exactly can I expect others to? Right.
    – – – – –
    Regarding E specifically. I tend to not do things for myself because I feel like it will make me a bad mom, or I’ll feel guilty for not spending every second with him. This kind of relates to #3, but is different enough to warrant it’s own spot on the list.

    I’ve been battling headaches and stomach problems for a couple months now. And now I’m having some back/shoulder issues. I know it’s because I’ve been neglecting my body (and soul), and I need to just cut that shit out. Time to grow up, Kaci!
    – – – – –
    Specifically, I’m talking about my relationships. I need to focus my time and energy on people who are important to me and to whom I’m important. But this also applies in a more general sense, too.

    Can I just say that I’m stupid excited to see you in Vegas this year? Like, I’m over the moon excited to see you because I want to sit down with you and talk and just be and make you smile and hug you and be there for you and I just can’t wait. Really. SO EXCITED. Also, COCKTAILS!

    Also, god damn that’s a photo of sexy ladies!

    #3 has been a tough one for me, for years, and lately, I’ve started owning up to it. It’s a journey, but it’s a good one. Good luck to you, love 🙂

    I second the “damn that’s a photo of sexy ladies” comment.

    I have only a few words left in me today, so I’ll just say I really like this entry 🙂

    Those all sound legit to me! The guilt thing is a big one for me as well… I think it just means that we care about how we’re doing as moms, which is a good thing all on it’s own! 🙂

    And seriously? The last BiSC?! Shoot, I might have to go.

    As promised you are here with a chocolate recipe. Thanks A quick question: if not served immediately, would it solidify and not have the mousse consistency? It’s been tough to get very dark chocolate here so I’m wondering how would a mousse recipe work with cocoa powder..

    उसीदिन मैं उठाऊंगा हाथ जिसदिन -तुम मेरे होठों पे दुआ बन के आओगे ।जान जाओगे तुम "प्रभात "का हाल-जिस दिन उसका चेहरा पढ़ पाओगे ।..बहुत अच्छी रचना
