I'm calling them goals instead of resolutions since I haven't had much luck with those : )
So without further ado...here they are, in no particular order!!!
1. Move More and Eat Well...
(coined by Cathy Zielske)
I know how to do this I just have chosen not to....This year
it is becoming more of a necessity than a choice. My sugar
numbers are up as well as my weight and I just don't feel
as good as I used to. I know I'm older, but I know with a little
work, I could feel a whole lot better.
2. My Crafts need to pay for my Supplies...
This shouldn't be too hard, I just need to keep track of things
better. When I sell something, it needs to go into the account I
buy my supplies from. I am nickel and dimeing our family
account to death.
3. Support my CTMH Downline better...
I have done a horrible job with this in the past. I think since I
learned the ropes pretty much on my own, that I think everyone
likes to do it that way....This is not necessarily so, I need to
keep in touch and have routine meetings and crafting sessions
with my girls. Should help all of us with our business goals.
4. Remember my family and friends with Occasion Cards on time...
I love all my family members and friends so much, but they
would never know if by the way I remember
(or don't remember) the special events in their lives. This
year, my event calendar will get a workout and those cards
will make it on time.
5. Project Life...
I am starting Project Life this year. I have planned to do
it in the past, but just never got around to it. My title page
is almost ready, (I need some family input) and I will try
and post here often. This will also help in the "keeping in
touch with family" goal mentioned above.
6. My Mayo job...
Going way out on a limb here since this has been a goal
of mine for several year. I will get the Rolodex in working
order. I will get the pictures taken, the images gathered
and sorted and assembled in a usable product for all of us,
but mostly for my students. Also, I will submit an article
or two for publication. I have some abstracts started and I
will keep on plugging away until I get published.
7. My "Real" job....
Motherhood is what I consider my "real" job. It is the most
important thing I do and if I mess it up, then I have done
my kids a disservice. While I know that not all the
"parent-child" issues we have in our house are not my
problem alone, I think I have not appoached problems
with a calm, let's fix it demeanor, but a reactive demeanor
which just escalates the problem. I will work on that and
if I can't do it myself, I will seek out professional help.
8. Date night with my wonderful Hubby....
Even if it is just the two of us sitting down together
sans kids, or heading to our room or the hot tub to
chat, we will spend time alone together at least once
a week. It is hard to find this time some weeks, but
it will be more of a priority this year. Also, I intend
to make our home a welcoming, clean, happy place for
us to "live."
9. Church and Faith...
It is time to get a handle on what I am putting into my
relationship with my God. I am realizing that it has
been pretty much a one way street, I need to step it up,
I need to stick my neck out once in awhile, I need to
show others what my God has taught me and I need to
dig deep before I make decisions, really look for his
guidance, not use others input to make the hard decisions.
I need to show God how much he means to me and how
much his sacrifice is appreciated and revered.
10. Simplify and Live within our means.....
While I have said I would simplify before, it really
needs to be in accordance with our bank account
and our long term goals.
