Lifestyle changes

I don't make New Year's Resolutions, and I don't think diets work. Hard but true lifestyle changes are the only things that are going to change my life. Since it is the beginning of the year and a great time to get a new start here are some baby steps I'm attempting the first few months of the year. If I can handle these changes I will add a few more changes later.

Each night at 7 pm the kids are going to do a 10 minute tidy of their rooms

After the 10 minutes in their bedroom they are going to come and do the same thing in the Family room.

I am going to spend a half hour with George everyday playing. We do "game time" (learning games, puzzles, workbook pages etc. a half hour everyday) but I really don't just sit down and play with the poor kid.

The kids aren't allowed to eat after 7 pm and really, neither should I.

So there is my list. That is probably all I can handle at this point and while it seems like small stuff it's new stuff for me / us and we'll see how it goes!
