I have two New Year’s resolutions. The first is all about self care. Every Wednesday for the entire year, I’m going to do a face mask after the kids go to bed. Face mask Wednesday, or FMW, because who doesn’t love a good abbrev.
People are always saying to me, “It’s important to take care of yourself,” or “Pamper yourself, girl!” I’m just kidding. No one actually says that to me, but if I ever interacted with people in real life, that’s what I imagine they’d say. So, I thought this would be a fun resolution that I could look forward to!
(First FMW and it was terrifying, if I’m being honest)
Ok, here’s my second one. I’m going to read one book every month. Maybe you’re thinking, “Erin, that’s pathetic. That’s like 10 pages per day! You can certainly read more than that!” Or maybe you could be like my husband who said, “TWELVE BOOKS IN ONE YEAR? I haven’t read that many books in my entire life!” *Stay back, ladies. He’s all mine.*
But here’s the really fun thing! I’m going to review each book I read! Maybe that’s not your idea of fun, but it’s a raging good time for me!
Guys, this is like, my dream job, so I hope you’re all on board. And if I only say good things about every book, don’t get mad. It’s just who I am as a person. I like all the things.
I will follow this up with, I probably wouldn’t pick a book to read that I won’t like, because, unlike you, I am really great at judging a book by it’s cover. That was mean. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it! Please, please forgive me! (See, I can’t do mean)
All this leads me to tell you… I’m changing the blog up. I know, I know! The Type 1 Tuesday and the Funny Mommy Friday. We had good times, but it’s been a year and we need to mix it up.
Every Tuesday is still going to be about bringing awareness to type 1 diabetes, so no real change there. (Go ahead. Breathe a sigh of relief. I know you don’t like change.)
But Funny Mommy Friday? Isn’t every day Funny Mommy Friday??? I’m still going to write mom blog posts throughout the year, but it’ll be a surprise when! Maybe when you least expect it. Maybe when you most expect it. Isn’t this fun already?!
And lastly, you can expect a book review the last week of every month, and that’s exciting, right?
I’m really looking forward to the year ahead. I have a ton of other goals that I can’t tell you about, because I’m too scared. But, honestly, I’m so thankful for all of you. You made my wildest 2018 dreams come true, and I can’t wait for 2019 to be just as amazing!
