I am not the "resolution making type". I think they are awesome. I also think that I suck at them and don't like the stench of failure. Call me crazy.
There are some things that I wanted to accomplish in 2008 and I think I was pretty successful.
Couponing I have been kicking butt and takin' names with coupons this year!
Best shopping trip was a grocery trip the cashier rang me up: 167.67 was the total I handed my STACK of coupons and paid OOP! 53.26 and he gave me 30 dollars worth of coupons off of my next shopping trip. Pretty stinking awesome.
The BIG one I quit smoking. (I gained 25 pounds doing it :( and am incredibly embarrased by this.) I have been smoke free since September 24th 2008. Yahooo.
I started back at my gym and so far had lost 12 pounds (I think I am up a few with the holidays making total weight loss like 6 but hey...)
Those were some successful things. Here are a few things I would like to be successful in this year.
More weight loss I am working on 20 pounds more. We will see if I get there. Not stressing cause it don't help but working on it.
I want to be less freak outish. I have some pretty great kids. I freak out WAAYYYYY to much. The playdoh colors can be mixed it won't kill anyone. The want to draw a picture on the screen door when it is frosted over what is it going to hurt minus the fact that I need to re-windex the window. So less freak out. Makes sense if you know me I promise.
I want to spend more time with my husband. I miss him and he is FINALLY at home now!!! We need to find someone who rocks our world with the whole babysitting thing. Either that or I am starting a swap night with some friends or something cause I love that hunk that I call husband he is pretty freakin' terrific.
I want to be slower. I mean stop RUSHING. Life is sooooo fast around me. I am missing some stuff trying to be the one to keep up all the time. So saying NO more often is a top thing on my priority list. Missing things is rough and I am already missing alot because of work. So I am definately going to start making the most of the littler things and stop rushing Leanna and Hudson. If bedtime is a little late because dinner took longer on the stove, I am NOT skipping that bedtime story. Slowness = big one this year!
I need to focus on the friendships that count cause here lately I have been feeling used. I want to make sure I am not making others feel this way. I want to make friendships that LAST. I have lost touch with some pretty awesome ladies and I am hoping to reconnect with them and to hopefully make a few more friends and to also tell the
God. I want to be closer to Him and truly know that I am listening for His plan for me and my family. I want to pray and talk to Him more and read and study and praise and sing. I want to not be so afraid to make Him so prominent in my life. I want to love like Him.
These are a few of those things that matter to me this year. I am refocusing me. That sums it up pretty nicely.
