I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Although we tried to keep things simple around here this year for Christmas, I'm still recovering! Grace has been enjoying all of the great presents that Santa delivered on Christmas Eve in addition to all the wonderful gifts given to her by our family and friends.
Today is New Year's Eve. In all the years that we've been together, this is our first year without plans for New Year's Eve. We ordered some Buffalo wings from our favorite place and I have a huge pot of spaghetti sauce cooking in the crock pot. We have lots of snacks and desserts to munch on, too! Somehow I doubt that we'll still be awake at midnight tonight. Or, since I'm the only night owl around here, I might be the only one still awake at midnight!
I cannot believe that 2010 is over. I really can't believe that Grace will be two in just 4 months!!! Sigh!
The past few weeks I've been thinking really hard about my resolutions for the new year. I find that they are pretty much the same each year, only to be forgotten by mid-January! Sad, huh? But this year, I'd like to follow my resolutions at least until mid-year if not the full year. Hopefully, blogging will help keep me accountable.
This year, I want to save money. Now, for us, this savings won't be cash in the bank. Our house needs some sprucing up, so the money I save, I'd like to be able to put toward things that need fixing around the house.
In addition to saving money/fixing up the house, I want to lose some weight. I tried over the summer, only to give up after a month or so. I'd like to stick it out a bit longer this year and really get a handle on my weight. Not only to be thinner, but to be healthier. I really need to start eating smaller portions and choose healthier foods for snacks.
I also want to work on my character. I tend to be judgemental and also lose my temper pretty easily. These are two things I want to fix about myself.
Blogging is something else that I want to work on this year. I've taken too many "vacations" or "breaks" from blogging this past year. I really want to focus on posting on a regular basis and try to get some posts on reserve for those times that I need to be away from the computer for an extended period of time.
So, those are my goals for the new year. How about you? What are your goals this year?
