Time for...

New Years Resolutions! The things I swear I am going to be better at in the coming year (and rarely am!). There have been years past when I swore off making resolutions, but this year I feel the need for some motivation in the personal improvement department. The first of which is keeping up on my blog! I have had such good intentions, but the holidays always get away from me and my time is not my own. So here is to better blogging in the New Year!

We had a wonderful Christmas. It was busy - 6 gatherings in 3 days - but we were able to see all of our family on both sides, so it was worth the go-go-go. And the kids were in seventh heaven, opening presents and playing with cousins for 3 days straight. Next year I hope to start the preparation a little earlier and enjoy a little more at the end. (Hey, there is another resolution!)

Another resolution I am looking forward to is making time for myself. My girlfriends have invited me to be part of a once-a-month scrapbook group and I really want to do it. I committed to it, and hopefully I will be able to carve out the time to stick with it.

This is also going to be the year for a healthier me. I'm not going for a crazy crash diet massive workout resolution, just more activity, less McDonalds - or The Dinner Store, as Jacob so lovingly refers to it!

Wish me luck - I hope all of you find success in your resolutions as well!
