New Year's Resolution #2

I have struggled as to whether I should even list this goal. If I complete 50%, I will consider it a success. lol My next New Year's resolution goal is:

2. I will purge and clean every room in my house(all 13 of them).

This will probably be the hardest one for me to accomplish, mainly, for the fact that I am lazy and when I get home from work I don't want to do anything(much less clean).

However, my house has gotten out of control. We have so much stuff--my stuff, my hubby's stuff, my children's stuff, etc. So, I have 13 rooms and 11 more months to get this goal completed. There are definitely easier rooms and more challenging rooms. I haven't figured out yet which ones I should start with. I am thinking of starting with one of the challenging ones and then go with an easier one. *sigh*

Anyway, this is my second goal and I hope I can at least accomplish half of it.

New Year's Resolution #1

So, over the weekend I started thinking that I need some resolutions this year. While, looking around my house(which really needs a good purging, but that's another resolution), I found that I had quite a few unread books piled up. See, I tend to just buy books and buy books and then buy some more books and then not have the time to read them.

On top of what I bought, my mom had also bought me the HP series and Sookie Stackhouse series. So, I decided after collecting them all and taking stock that I needed to read them before buying any more. After searching through my computer for any ebooks that I hadn't had time to read, I found that I had 59 books both bound and ebooks that needed to be read. lol I totally blame fanfiction and my new obsession with m/m books for not getting to these books.

Therefore, the following is my first New Year's resolution of the year:

1. I will read all unread books(bound and ebooks)that I currently own before purchasing any more.

This is going to kill me, but I am determined to get these books read. I have created a goal tracker on the right sidebar to keep tract with a GoodReads button that takes you to my New Year's resolution book list. Funny enough, I also have my GoodReads yearly book reading goal tracker under it. If I get these books read, then I will definitely complete my GR's goal. :D

Love is love, no matter what the package.

We have been tweeting about this video all day and I thought I would share. It is absolutely one of the most beautiful things that I have ever seen. I think that if all the haters in the world saw this, they would have a change of heart. Love is love, no matter what the package. Hope you enjoy!!

I cannot get a copy of the video, but here is the link on Tublr. The following is the caption: "Incase you were wondering what I got my boyfriend for Christmas, I bought him a potter’s wheel because he’s a ceramic’s major and loves to create. This is his reaction when i show him his gift on Christmas Eve :).

He’s adorable.
