Table Time

For some reason the past year I've gotten lazy about setting a proper table for our meals.  There's been more 'grazing' (eating mindlessly), snacking, and family members eating in their own little places of preference.

The 'pop' news of late has been about setting purposeful goals.  Thinking on this, my purposeful goal is to get back in the habit of meals with the family AT the table.  Setting a proper table that includes real plates, metal forks, napkins (cloth or paper), etc.  This will be to our benefit, and if I eat at regular meal times, there will be no need to graze or snack (in theory).   So, not calling this a new year's resolution, I (ahem) plan to 'on purpose' eat only at the grown-up's table.

There.  I said it.  So now must live it!  Nothing like the typed word to hold a person accountable, especially when published on the WWW.

Happy New Year!
