-spend more quality one on one time with my kids
-create an actual work schedule

-find an offline hobby (something, anything) that doesn't involve my children and Rock of Love reruns
-not have any more kids
-take better care of myself by making sure I prioritize even the smallest things (shower, bathroom breaks, sleep). Nothing is so pressing that I can't take a minute to pee. And I want to leave the house (no matter where I'm going) looking presentable. That means I will be ceremoniously burning all my gaucho pants. Anyone care to join me?
As part of 2009 - The Year of the Mom, I'm hoping you'll share what you're going to do to prioritize yourself - whether it's less blogging time or more blogging time, a pedicure a month or a shower a day.
Write a post on your blog about how you're going to take better care of yourself in 2009, place the button (see below - courtesy of Heather) in your sidebar (as a reminder and invitation to other moms), and send me your blog post link (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'll place your link on this post and enter you to win one of five $100 Spa finder Gift Cards courtesy of Parent Bloggers Network.
And get this - each winner will receive a free one-year to Sitter City ($100 value), a fantastic online community of babysitters, nannies, and petsitters. I've found all my sitters through them - it's really a great service.
(If you want to sign up for Sitter City, use the code "2009MOM" for 10% off!)
[Contest ends January 31, 2009, Midnight EST. Only one entry per blogger per blog - so if you have more than one blog, you can only be entered once!]
