I don't make resolutions

I don't make new years resolutions... because those are lame and rarely stick. I do, however have some goals for this next year, and I like to set 'quantitative' goals, because they are easier for me to wrap my brain around and achieve. For instance I would like to read more this year, but rather than Resolving to read more... I have decided I want to read 12 books this year cover to cover (yeah, I know, I am a ridiculously slow reader, but my recall is incredible! :) hehe)
Other goals for this year: Um, get married.
I also would like to create a list of at least 14 dishes I make that Z likes. That means in theory, we could have 2 weeks of dinners without a repeat. I'll let you know how that goes.
And I am continuing on my journey toward becoming a better housekeeper by tackling one room each day. Kitchen one day, then living room the next, then bedrooms the next, then bathroom... repeat. One room at a time is much less overwhelming. And I don't 100% have the hang of it yet, but I have gotten better at picking up after myself as I go, especially with dishes in the kitchen.
And last but not least, Z told me I need to make a resolution to stop leaving my keys in the front door... I am just horrible at remembering, and I can't come up with a good method to break myself of it. I'm thinking maybe a sticker chart... hmmm...

What about securing your keys to your purse or something? Y'know, with a ribbon or chain or retractable something or keyfob or whatever. To you or a pocketbook. You pull it out, unlock door, drive car, then as you walk away you are attached, you have to take it with you, plus, no more lost keys! Just a suggestion.
