Reset The New Year Button

Here's why I absolutely LOVE New Year's Day: it's a chance to collectively reflect on the previous year and reset priorities, ambitions and goals for the new one.  Granted, this could be done at any point in time; but since the rest of the Western World is doing it right now--I will too.

  1. Start going to church again (that would require finding one).
  2. Take Lavender for a walk every (maybe, other) day.
  3. De-poop the backyard at least once a week.
  4. Have a date night once a month--preferably with my husband (kidding).
  5. Go to bed early during the week.
  6. Keep the garage, office and guest room more organized.
  7. Sign the family up for one 5K Fun Run (even if we only walk the entire race).
  8. Establish special 'Only Child' time with each baby on the weekends.
  9. Start a writing project (no need to finish it--starting it would be the biggest hurdle).
  10. Figure out a brilliant way to make easy (and legal) money without having to actually work.
  11. Keep the dogs (and my eyebrows) regularly groomed. 
Happy New Year!!  It's a new blank slate; time to paint it pretty!!!

How about turning this wonderful blog into a book! You've already done your writing project for the year and (probably) make some 'legal' money.
Love you,

Those are some great goals! Good luck! I'll have to start thinking about what I want to do...
