(Lack of) 2010 Resolution Update

letter bin from pottery barnI'm glad I didn't give myself too difficult of a resolution this year, because I've been a tad slow getting going. But I'm happy to say that I've sort of completed Step One of my 2010 Resolution to Be a Better Public School Mom: Getting organized.

I finally got my husband to hang my paper organizer in my kitchen last weekend. That was a major feat in and of itself. See the picture I took at right. (Next time, clear the cereal boxes and clutter off the counter first, Slob.)

I'm planning to use this for all of my son's important school papers and homework. But already that plan is going awry. I took a look inside my great new school organizer last night ...

I've got:

-- Three 2009 tax statements

-- My husband's school calendar

-- A few supermarket receipts

-- Car registration (gotta remember to schedule that inspection)

-- A toaster pastry wrapper

-- One marble

-- Not one sheet of homework or school papers.

So as I've said I've got a ways to go. It's going to be a long year. Please bear with me.

Are you sticking to your New Year's Resolutions so far?
