The New Year!

Happy "Belated" New Year!

I hope that everyone brought in 2008 exactly the way you wanted to!

Mr. Mister and I had originally thought we would be in Washington D.C. for New Year's Eve, but those plans fell through. So, we didn't really do anything special. I was actually asleep when the ball dropped!

We spent the 1st curled up on the couch in the den, watching movies on the big screen and eating popcorn! It was nice and quiet! I really prefer it that way!

On the 2nd, I started Weight Watchers again. I waited until Wednesday, because I like weighing in during the middle of the week. It gives me time to work off being "BAD" over the weekend! LOL I try to save up all of my flex points for the weekends because Mr. Mister and I usually end up going out to eat somewhere.

I have a few things I want to try and work on in this new year! I don't want to call them "resolutions" because we all know what happens when you make those! So, my list is as follows:

1. Become more organized! (I REALLY need to accomplish this one! I cannot tell you how many times I have signed up for Flylady over the last few years!)
2. Start making menus again! (I hate being asked - What's for dinner?)
3. Pay off bills! (Doesn't everyone want to do this? LOL)
4. Stop eating out so much! (We spend way too much money eating out!)
5. Create MORE! (I miss creating things! Maybe, Sunday will be my day to play?)
6. Diet/Exercise! (UGH! The thought makes me nauseous! LOL But at least I have already started on this one.)

Well, that's pretty much it in a nutshell! Maybe, having all of it written down, will help keep me working in the right direction.

Sounds like a very nice New Year's...being with the one you love!

I LOVE your list of goals. Thisi past year we have become committed to paying all bills currently each month and it is amazing how liberating it is. And...we've had more spending money in the process.

I also want to create more, and also make menus again.

The diet/excercise goals are always the toughest for me. ugh...

OMG!!! Your list could be mine!!! I'm going to write my list down. I'm thinking it may help me to stick with it, since I have not in the past.
When my kids were younger, I used to post menu's on the fridge because I also hated being asked what's for dinner. This also made it a lot easier when I went to the store, because I knew what I needed to pick up. Sometimes, the hubby will ask "the hated" question and I feel like I want to box his head! Okay, now that I've got that off my chest, here's wishing you much success with your "resolutions". :-)
Hugs!

Hi katie!

I love your list! I really need to get more committed with the bills part in my life as well! LOL. It is so much easier to spend, isn't it? I love the new banner...I wasn't sure if I've told you that yet or not. Thanks so much for your continued friendship. Looking forward to a new year of happy sharing! Love ya!
