Goals for the New Year

Ok, so I know that January is almost over but I don't think it is too late to make some goals for 2009. Here are some things that I am going to accomplish this year:


1. Get back on my workout schedule (again). Notice that I didn't say stay on my workout schedule. I just have to get back on one. But for how long, who knows? I always like to leave a nice loophole, just in case.


2. Conquer the mending pile. Known to my family as the clothes graveyard. I recently did some mending and gave the clothes back to my kids. You would have thought that it was Christmas. "I thought I had lost it"...."Wow, I didn't think I'd ever see that again"...One kid even hugged and kissed his long lost sweatshirt. It takes so little to make them happy, apparently.


3. Finish organizing the house. I want all those tubs full of....well...ok, I'm not even sure what is in them anymore, but I want them all nice and tidy.


4. Set up a clothes closet for the church. I want to help us help each other. Seems like a worthwhile project to tackle.


5. Get one room in the house totally done. That means (Corey are you listening?) com-plete-ly done. Moldings, trim, curtains, decor, closet doors. Just one little itsy bitsy room, pleeeeaaassseee?


I probably have more, but let's face it, I don't want to wear myself out. It's a good start anyway. Hold me accountable please. Ok, don't really, no need for that, I hope...

Your family is so cool!
We just finalized our first adoption last March and can't wait to keep adding to our family!

Do you buy adult knee highs to make leg warmers? I am about to become a stay at home mom and I love to sew, so I am going to go try to find some cheap socks and look for the directions!

Maybe the floors will eventually get done (ahem Corey) :)
