Goals for 2010

Wow, 2010...already? Hard to believe that this is the last year I'll be teenager-less...Alex will turn 13 in 2011. My baby will also start kindergarten that year, so expect me to be a frenzied mess, buying calcium and anti-wrinkle cream in bulk. Surprisingly, the only thing that bothers me THIS year is the fact that my MOM will be SIXTY! That really makes me feel older than anything else...but don't tell her I said that. Love you, Mom!

Okay, I know I've been gone almost 2 months, and my blogging before that was sporadic, at best. I think 2009 must have been my year to take a break from my blog, from my art, from my etsy store, from the internet groups I've always been so active in before. Of course, I'm addicted to too many Facebook games to leave the internet altogether, but I think you know what I mean.

So number one on my list of goals for 2010?

1) BLOG at least ONCE a WEEK.
Since I'm posting this on the 7th day of the New Year, I'm totally within the one week mark.

2) Be in a size 8 (or a 6...hey, it could happen!) by the end of the year.
I've only got 30-35 pounds left to lose, so this is totally possible. I look forward to shopping for new clothes!

3) Edit and organize my pics from this year and last, and get them on Flickr. Also, download a manual for my camera, so I can actually figure out how to use it.
This is a tough one. I'll need prayer.

4) Read 100 books.
Since I received the Twilight series for Christmas (thanks, Rachel & Rick!!), I'm already 2.3 books on my way to meeting this goal! (Technically, I finished Twilight before the New Year started, so I'm not able to count it.) I'm considering a list here on the blog with the books I've read so far. Maybe.

5) Get back into my art again!
Art journal prompts, design team work, schtuff for my etsy store...any and all of those things I've neglected for TOO LONG!!

That's all I can think of for now. I hope you'll come by and visit me once in awhile, you know, to help keep me accountable. Sorry I was so...absent...last year! I'm still a comment junkie, so anything you'd like to say to me here will only fuel my determination to make this blog awesome again!! LOVE my internet friends, and I've MISSED you!! I'd love to hear your goals/resolutions for 2010...Happy New Year!

I haven't know you too long...however, I admire you for the person you choose to be, the mother you are to your children, and your ability to take life in strides, day by day...
Best wishes on your resolutions...I'm glad I can call you a friend.

Do you have a Kohl's (sp?) department store near you? You need to buy your new clothes there if you do. I bought some new jeans there last month and even though I've gained weight, I took a size smaller than the last pair I bought! Yeah, they know how to make a girl feel skinny, lol.

Here's what I love: Your goals are all personal, about nurturing the wonderful YOU! So good. Also, if you email me the name/etc of your camera I will download the manual, print it out and mail it to you. Also, if you sign into my booklist on facebook you will see TONS of book suggestions!

Have a fabulous new year babe!
