My Resolutions

Welcome to 2009! Can you believe it's 2009?!?! The years seem to keep flying by faster and faster and faster. I've decided that this year is going to be a great year...and this is the year that I KEEP my resolutions. Here are my resolutions for this year:

1. Pay off debt and save more money - be more frugal
2. Cut down on my sugar intake (I wish I could say that I wouldn't eat any sugar, but we all know that won't happen)
3. Exercise 30+ minutes a day - 3 days a week
4. Finish the quilts I've started
5. Sew more and use the fabric in my fabric stash (I really do have WAY TOO MUCH fabric)
6. Be more patient (I tend to have little patience sometimes...unfortunately)
7. Donate blood at least 4 times (I'm O- so they like my blood)
8. Watch less TV
9. Adopt a baby (Unfortunately, I don't have any control over this one...maybe a birth mom will pick us!)
10. Start a business that I've been thinking about (out of my house and on the internet)

What are your resolutions?

My mom, has decided that everyday she's going to write down one positive thing - one thing she's grateful for. I like that idea, so I plan on doing it too! Today, I'm grateful that I have a job...and a loving, understanding husband to talk to on days when things are a little stressful at work.

Well, I better get started on those resolutions! Thanks for stopping by...leave me a note with one of your resolutions! Make it a great day! =)

One of my new years resolutions is to get to know you better! I actually live on your street (I'm in your ward) and have been a "lurker" on your blog for a little bit now. Hope you don't mind!

You are a lot more ambitious than I am. 10 resolutions! What a woman. I am luck if I make 3. I am not fantastic at them. Oh well. I think I will try being more patient first. I am horrible at that!

Hi Anna - since I am around you a lot, I can monitor the patience resolution every day :). Our jobs can be a little stressful at times, so it's a good place to practice patience. Good luck with all your resolutions! Love, mamma

Do you have a homestudy for adoption? Email me. For whatever reason I do not have your email address.

Wait! That's two things you're grateful for -- you're only alloted one per day LOL! What a wonderful idea!
