It's a new month, and time for a new resolution. Last month I resolved to cut up that extra fabric and get a head start on my Christmas stockings. I cut out about 50, which is about 1/3 of the job. Not too bad. The great thing about these resolutions is that they are just for one month, and I can forget about it now, and stop beating myself up for not finishing it.
This month will be busy enough with traveling and unpacking, finding the local shopping areas, locating the chapel on post, and just figuring out how to get from Point A to Point B. But I still think I can squeeze in a simple resolution. This month I'm going to get Pete a new bed and transition him into it. Usually, I just get a real twin size bed when it's time for the baby to give up the crib, but his room will still need to fit the crib for the new addition. A regular bed will take up too much room, so I think a toddler bed will be best. There's no way I'd buy a new one, especially since I see them for sale used all the time. I'll have to be patient, and maybe do a little extra leg work - possibly even go out early on a sultry Saturday morning and hit some yard sales. Or I'll just pray that the thrift shop on post had a nice one donated and I'm the lucky first person to spot it.
That's it for me. Have you got a new month's resolution? Nothing too challenging - it's summer break after all. Let me know!
