For me being a better parent means being more patient and being involved in my kids activities. Those two have been my biggest shortcomings this year. We have done a good job of going to the park, recreation centers, and museums. I have also been able to support them in music class, swim class, gymnastics and dance.
However, I have not been involved with homework or crafts at home. I have likewise chosen to watch television rather than help put the girls to sleep. To that end, I am going to work towards being more patient and trying to limit my television habit to 1 hour/night.
In terms of mental health November, I finally met the objective by attending 4 support group meetings during the month of November. This was more difficult than I thought it would be. By happenstance I also cut back on casino gaming and sped up on getting organized. Home Improvement got off the ground last month as granite counter tops have been bought and paid for.
Of the goals for the past 12 months, the biggest shortcomings have been diet & weight loss, better husband, and spiritual health.
