I'm an avid knock-on-wooder, an under-ladder non-walker, I never step on a crack or dare open an umbrella inside and the time I broke a mirror I started to cry. I'd bet my husband doesn't even realize this.

So with that confession out of the way, I'll point out that we're nearly two weeks into 2013 and I still cringe a little bit writing the date on things. Not as badly as when it was June 6, 2006. I should have just stayed in bed all day. I might also add that I'm cringing because the only thing I've really written the year on so far have been a few checks and I hate paying for stuff. Everything should be free for me because I'm special.
2012 was just "meh" to be honest. It had it's share of unbelievable drama...believe me, but loads of happy and fun moments. So in all, the good kicked the bad's buttocks.
I'm proud to say that I made two New Year's resolutions and actually kept them. I kept them because they didn't involve any will power or self control. They were to read all seven Harry Potter books (I had read the first five and couldn't find time to move on once I had Justin - that jerk) and the other was to watch the entire series of LOST from beginning to end (I had watched religiously until Natalie was born and I had to give it up cold turkey), which I did from August to November LIKE A CHAMP!
You might notice a pattern: Ali liked things. Ali had interests. Ali had kids and they screwed it up. Ali finally got back to liking things after 4 years.
So to YOU, year 2013 MMXIII if I want to get all fancy. Go easy on me.
This year's resolutions:
- Fix my blog header so I don't look like such a slacker.
- Curse less (see my reference to "buttocks" above. I did some editing)
- Teach my husband to use my camera so there are actually pictures of ME this year.
- Start making my kids do chores because they're getting too spoiled and this house is a pigsty.
- Tone my flabby upper arms. Just ewwww.
- Revive my blog because I miss it.
Wishing you all a very prosperous MMXIII - This is a good solution to my problem. These are letters, not numbers.
