The First Day

Today is the first day of 2009. I hope to make it one of our very best years. I don't usually do "resolutions" as I tend to live in a state of "everything is FINE" AND...I don't really like feeling like a failure when I don't uphold those resolutions.


I am thinking this year is going to be different....rather than "resolving" to make things different..I am going to set some goals to make changes in my life.

These are my goals:

As a Christian: I want to read my Bible more, pray more, find a good church and GO.

As a Wife: I want keep our home more clean and organized, make sure we go out for a date at least once a month and have more "play time" *wink wink*, manage our money better.

As a Mom: I want to be more fun, yell less, laugh more, talk more. Teach my boys better manners. Spend more time with each boy individually--and make sure they have more one on one time with Kyle. Take more pictures.

As a Daughter: I want to be more of a help to my mom regarding my brother--invite him over for the night, etc to give my mom a break.

As a Blogger: I want to post more...maybe even daily..definitely weekly and in that realm of posting I want to keep track of those things I am grateful for.

Just for Me: I want to lose a good amount of weight. It's been a long time coming and I plan for this year to be IT. I want my motto to be "lose 109 in 2009" Yes, I am that fat..and yes..I need to lose that much.

I think this is a good start. I'm looking forward to all the good things I believe 2009 and will bring.
