In 2009.......

Is it smart for me to POST New Years Resolutions? NO! It is not! Because then everybody knows my faults and will be watching to see if I really do all the things I say I am going to do this year. But since everyone that reads my blog probably has a lot better things to do than check up on me and how I am doing with my resolutions, I guess I will go ahead and post some

GoAlS fOr ThE nEw YeAr!!!
-Keep working on my Patcience. This will probably be a goal for me for the rest of my life!
-Be a better mom! Always! Do the little things that are bigger then I realize...Like...Reading stories, tucking them in at night, saying I love you more, just taking more time
-Be a better wife. Even if it's dinner on the table at night and clean socks and underwear in the drawers instead of in the dryer for a week! Remember to tell Justin I love him every day!
-Lose the baby weight. Typical resolution, I know. But it really has to happen!
-Keep running. I am not much of a runner, but I try and I want to try harder.
-Make a quilt. I just want to learn.
-Be a better friend/person. I want to be the kind of person that calls or drops in for no reason, just to let you know you are thinking of them. I have good intentions of doing this, but I seem to chicken out. I want to learn to recognize when people need something, and be there for them. So many have done it for me!!
-Tighten up my spending habits. I don't need everything I see, I have plenty. I need to save my money for a rainy day......or when the milk price plumets!!
-Family Scripture Study, Family prayer, Family home evening. We are doing better, but it's easy to sleep those extra 15 minutes in the morning. But I am recognizing how much it helps our family.
-Realize that a happy family is more important than a clean house. I do realize this, I just can't seem to make it happen.
-Date nights with Justin twice a month!

TOP TEN REASONS 2009 IS GOING TO BE GREAT!!
1. Going to GA in May to see one of my very best friends!
2. Max will turn one! I love when they get a little older!
3. Justin and I will celebrate 10 years of marriage! And hopefully celebrate somewhere warm!
4. I won't be pregnant in the summer!!!
5.Going to Lake Powell with my family! (this better happen)
6. I will have grass for summer playing instead of sand!
7.Kim will be the same age as me!!! :) I know she can't wait to be 30!!
8.Every years just seems to get a little better!
9. Sydni will be done with eye therapy and hopefully have perfectly straight eyes!
10. I will stick with all my resolutions and feel so much better about myself!! :)

I will keep a really close eye on your resolutions. HaHa. I have no intention of setting or keeping this way I don't have to feel bad.

Good for you! Patience is number one on my list too! It probably was last year as well, sounds like I'm good at keeping those resolutions.
