Resolution (for real this time)
McHotty and I were both home all day yesterday. I was on the computer all day, and he was a busy bee. He went to the gym. He cleaned the toilets and bathtubs. He cooked up a double batch of butter chicken. I commented on all of his activity, and he explained he was making good on his new years’ resolutions: to be consistent at the gym, help with the housework more (!), and leave me with leftovers when he goes on shift to help with my resolution to eat less processed food.
I shit you not!
These virtuous resolutions made me feel a little bad about my flippant ones (‘tho I am making good—I haven’t been to the cheese market yet this week). But I thought I might try to make some more serious resolutions, or at least one.
So, I hereby resolve to stop being so stingy with my time. Since school started I have been really consumed. If I have five free minutes my nose is in a book. Any other time is devoted to Cakes. For Christmas, all McHotty wanted was for me to give him a day of tech instruction (McHotty is many things, but technically inclined is not one of them—I wear the pocket protector in the family). I need to spend a day with McHotty showing him iTunes and Facebook and all kinds of other stuff I’ve been putting off.
I also need to spend more time with friends. I need a fix of the MBT crew soon. I’ve met some very cool people at school I’d like to get to know better. I have a couple of email addresses floating in my purse of folks I hit it off with in the ‘hood. We need to have the neighbours over to play dominoes soon--since the weather turned cold we’ve all burrowed into our dens.
Is anyone else seriously missing their social life? Hey, maybe it’s time for another Toronto Blogger pub. Who's in?
