My Bloody Fantastic Resolution

So I’ve been batting around a couple of ideas for my new year’s resolution. I’m planning to do just one resolution, not a whole list. A whole list is asking for trouble.

Some ideas I’ve come up with are as follows:

#1 Be more organized. This is a good one because there are a zillion ways my life would be easier if I were more organized. A zillion. But, I don’t know, somehow that seems boring. And I don’t really even know where to start. And it just seems like so much work…so onto the next idea.

#2 Have better time management. I have Pinterested the CRAP out of how to have better time management. Usually it all boils down to making “To Do” lists…which I already do. I write down a huge lists of things I need to do. Then I don’t do any of them. Or I lose the list (which probably wouldn’t happen if I were more organized. See Resolution idea #1) Other than the fact that my entire life would improve if I had better time management, I can’t really see the benefit. Next.

#3 Keep a tidier house. haha! just kidding! Nope. Next.

#4 Eat better. Clearly this is a good one. And a necessary one. But I’m already planning to do that. And since I only want to pick one resolution I don’t want to waste it on something that I’m already planning to do. (And just so you know, I’m planning to be such a healthy eater that I could enter a healthy eater contest and win. So I’m not really concerned about making it an official resolution.)

Those are the top 4 choices that I’ve been toying with. They’re boring, and they are all just sorry excuses to better myself. And improve my life. And possibly the lives of those around me.

Blah.

I need something good.

So resolution #5 is the one I’m going with.

RESOLUTION #5 ~ Stop Talking Like Peppa Pig

I’ve given this a lot of thought.

Do you know Peppa Pig? Peppa Pig is this awesome little cartoon from the UK. Peppa is the main character, and she’s the greatest. My 4-year-old is obsessed with her. We DVR it so that we never miss an episode  And Santa even brought her a Peppa Pig DVD. Yay, Santa!

My problem is that after I watch Peppa Pig (and her little brother, George) I can’t stop mimicking her voice. Her little British pig voice. I literally can’t stop. Can’t. I spend the whole day talking in a scratchy English accent, and I call everybody in the house George and Suzy Sheep, etc. Which is sort of fun at first, but then everyone gets sick of it and they are like, “Mom! Stop talking like that!” and I’m like, “I bloody can’t!” (said in an English accent of course.)

I think something is wrong with me.

So that is my resolution this year. Stop talking like a little British pig. Which, if I’m being honest, I only really stand 1/2 a chance of successfully stopping. And if I’m REALLY being honest, I’m good with it either way.

Happy New Year, Everyone!

By the way, here is a little clip of Peppa Pig. It’s only a minute and 30 seconds long. Watch it, and then seriously tell me that you wouldn’t go around talking in that voice all day. click here —>  Peppa Pig Clip
