Just like everyone else at this time of year I too am making a few goals for myself and my family.

1-continue to make it to the gym!
I would like to lose another 25 pounds in the next 3 months and continue losing until I lose a total of 75 pounds this year.

2-eat better
see above

3-work towards our goal of being debt free.
its been a year since we went to Financial Peace University and we have done really well with 4 layoffs during that time we still have paid off hospital bills, one car, 2 credit cards and incurred no new debt for both Christmas's we have had since we went. I know that we would be out of debt much sooner if I go back to work and I will have to make that decision in February because that is when my leave of absence from the IRS is up.

4-be a better wife and mother.
This is also a factor in my work/stay home decision I have worked at night for most of my 2 older children's lives. It has been very nice to be able to be here to help with homework and eat dinner as a family.

5-strengthen my testimony of the gospel.
I believe knowledge is power and so the more I know and learn about the gospel the more it will strengthen me and my faith. As a relief society teacher I have a golden opportunity once a month to learn all I can about that months lesson. I need to be better about doing just that.

6-start scrapbooking again.
I have missed scrapbooking I have been doing a lot of other things sewing, craft projects, quilts but I haven't set aside any time for scrapbooking. I need to.

7-Keep the California grandparents more in "the loop"
I know this one is just a matter of being more organized and following through on goal # 6 so I can send them pictures and the like. Love you guys.

I think seven is a good number to end on for now. I don't think any of my goals or resolutions if you will are unreasonable or unattainable. We will see ;O)
