For the new year I have one simple resolution. I want to stop sweating the small stuff. I’ve noticed that there is a LOT of small stuff that just gets to me. Here are a few of the small things that I will learn to ignore in 2010:

1. my sweet husband leaving a mess EVERY time he makes his African tea (annoying, but not worth getting worked up about)

2. kids in my class who make their shoes squeak while walking down the hall (If I can’t beat them, might as well join them.)

3. people who pay by check at retail stores (but you already knew that one from this post)

4. children's clothing with statements that promote an inflated but empty ego

Is there any small stuff you want to ignore in 2010? Please share!


  1. I am not going to sweat passive aggressive behavior. Instead of getting sucked in.....just let it roll off my back. Happy New Year Joy! Love!

  2. I'm going to ignore anything on the floor that is smaller than a breadbox.

    Happy New Year!

  3. How about t-shirts that promote never taking responsibility for anything? Today one of my first-graders wore a t-shirt that said, "WASN'T ME".

  4. I recently saw a 'Dumb + Stupid = my sister' t-shirt on a kid. I thought 'gee mom, you're putting it in writing that your kid's a jerk?!?'
