New Year - New Goals!
Happy New Year Everyone! I know for my family and for many of my friends 2010 has had some challenging moments, but with it coming to a close I hope to put those behind us and focus on the good memories of the year! Great family vacations, wonderful time with family and friends making memories for a lifetime, kids growing up and taking on new responsibilites, and too many others to list! When I look back I can say without a doubt that 2010 was a year of growth and change for our family. I wonder what 2011 will bring. By this time next year, Nick and Ryan will be seniors in High School and Kendall will be in Pre-K, Jefferson will be driving and James and I will probably have a few more gray hairs! I only have one resolution for 2011 which is "Spend more time and energy focused on my family." I also have several goals for the new year. Not sure there is much difference in a resolution and a goal but for some reason I seem them differently. Most of my goals are more just simple changes in daily living choices or short-term objectives that hopefully won't take a year to complete! So a few of my goals for the new year are (1)handle the everyday stress in life better, (2)keep the house clean, (3)be more organized, (4)simplify our life by reducing clutter, (5)add money to the savings account each month, (6)find a church home for our family were we all feel accepted, (7)go some place I have never been, (8) be a better blogger and post at least twice a month, and (9)put pictures on at least half of the layouts that I currently have complete. Hopefully, on Dec. 31, 2011, I can post some positive results from my resolution/goals for the year! I pray that you all will have a blessed 2011! Happy New Year Everyone!
