Where did 2009 go? Seriously, we just started it and now it's gone! I was looking back over last year's resolutions and no kidding out of about 30, I completed 2 or 3. Argh! I guess that is better than nothing, but does not seem very efficient of me. Maybe I should start setting goals I can definitely meet to make myself feel good. Okay, low expectation resolution #1 - only gain 5 lbs this year - #2 - check email and Facebook waaay too much - #3 exercise only on days that start with a "W". HAAA! So seriously, I will continue to set the bar way too high because that is what I do. For 2010, I again have way too many resolutions. I always kind of divide them into categories - God, family, finances, self etc. I won't bore you with all of them but here are a few.
God - to find a church for our family and attend enough for people to stop giving us visitor cards
Self - to finally go on a canoe trip and to buy a bra from Victoria Secret
Family - to get Georgia out of my bed - she's almost 7! and to take more camping trips this year
Finances - hummm to have some finances!
Home - to redeco my room and Adrian's room
Others - to participate in a fundraiser for children's cancer research
I usually reevaluate my goals every month. I try to find things I can do every month - if not everyday to reach my goals. For example, one of my goals is to lose a few pounds (of course), so I will schedule a workout everyday to help meet that goal. Also, one of the goals I mentioned is to redeco my room with a tufted headboard. I will schedule a day to measure for the board and then I will schedule a day to buy the plywood and materials. Wow, you would think I would accomplish a lot more. Sometimes I have to really sit back and look at my grand plans and ask myself where all this matters in the big picture. I get so caught up in the planning to live sometimes, I forget to live. You know how it goes..
On to decorating, I finally finished my laundry room! Well, we're never really finished but I am at a resting point. Here is the before...
Oh my those pics are awful, why am I putting them on here for the world to see? And who, who, who? picked that pink and green wallpaper?
And here is after....
Omigolly, it looks so much better. I got rid of a bunch clutter and those horrid stripes. I am thinking about putting a red toille (umm how do you spell that word?) curtain on the door. What do you think? I don't want the area to look cluttered.
Coming up this year on my blog:
Redo of the master bedroom, including a tufted headboard.
Redo of my teenage daughter's tiiiiny bedroom.
Some low fat/cal recipes!
