Taking 2016 One Month at a Time: February Resolutions

februaryresIn the beginning of January I wrote a post titled, “When New Year’s Resolutions are out of Your League . . .”.  In that post, I chose a few simple resolutions that I would do my best to work on in the month of January.  Here’s a short recap:

  1. Go to Adoration – I made it there once, and when I arrived Jesus wasn’t exposed in the monstrance!  I called the rectory and my pastor answered.  I exclaimed calmly that I “couldn’t find Jesus!”  Father Connors explained that since it was a national holiday, he left Jesus in the tabernacle, since often those days many people do not come to adoration.  Thankfully I got there . . . and found Jesus!
  2. Make “Playtime with Xavier” the first thing on my to do list every day – I did “okay” with this one.  Many times I didn’t have structured play first thing in the morning, but often I found myself stopping what I was doing and playing with him – even if it was for a short amount of time.  This still needs improvement.  I feel way to distracted most days.
  3. Make healthier choices – Epic fail.  Really.  Any advice or encouragement is this department is most welcome.
  4. Go on at least one date with my husband – Just in under the wire – we went on a date January 30th!  It was awesome, and I plan to write a whole post on it.  We went wine tasting and out to dinner.  To those who live in or around PA or NJ, I highly recommend Old York Cellars!  I’ll talk more about this date in my next post!

Now, I’m moving on with February!  It’s funny, because I have been seeing a lot of this meme going around . . .febmeme1.jpg

So, if you shared this, or think, “yep, that’s true!”.- join me!  Make a few month resolutions – and share them so we can hold each other somewhat accountable!  Let’s all make some little improvements and accomplish some big goals!  If not now, when?


In February, I am going to:

  1. Get to adoration – at LEAST twice!
  2. Spend more time in the evening looking at the faces of my family members, and less time looking at a screen!
  3. Eat healthier foods, and exercise.  Even if it’s just going for a walk.
  4. Get out on another date with the hubby.
  5. Spend more time playing with my son – and teach him at least one new game.

Will you join me?  Will you share some goals you have for this month?  Will you tell me what I can eat that’s healthy, but looks and taste like a cookie?
