Ringing in 2010!!

Well, the new year is quickly approaching and that can only mean one thing…time for the dreaded list of New Year’s Resolutions. This year I want to be more intentional about what I do and who I do it with. I want to spend more time at church and less time on myself. I want to have more dates with my husband. I want to have more game and movie night with my kids. I want to make time for more coffee dates in the middle of the day with my girlfriends. I want to fall madly and deeply in love with the people in my life, my husband and my kids. I want to write more and talk less. I want to work out and eat healthy instead of spending time talking about it. I want to try new recipes and not worry who’s going to complain about it. I want to yell at my kids less and have more patience with my husband. I want to pray more. I want to forget about what’s happened in the past, accept change and look forward to the future. I want to stop being bitter towards the people who seem to have the life I want to have and just make the life I really want for myself. I want to spend more time scrapbooking and less time buying scrapbook supplies. I want to spend more time drinking wine in front of the fireplace with my husband. I want to wake up every morning and be thankful for that day. I want to keep my kitchen clean, my scraproom organized and the office less cluttered. I want to meal plan and stick with it. I want to stop eating out so often. I want to be on the same page as my husband when it comes to disciplining the kids. I want to spend more time with my family. I want to learn to knit. I want to set some goals for my business and then make it happen. I want to learn how to use the grill. I want to meet more of my neighbors. I want to be happy.

I want to glorify God in all that do. And if I can do that I’ll be alright.

Happy New Year!!
