New Year, New Me

It has been awhile since I posted, and well I am out of apologies. Truth be told, I have been so busy that I forget what I was going to write. But, as you know New Year's Eve is right around the corner so I will be able to make, yet more resolutions I will probably fail at keeping-Although I would love to not make resolutions this year, I feel compelled to start the year off with positive energy and a new found hope for something better.

Here are five that I have made and have never kept.
1. Eat healthier
2. let my hair, and nails grow
3.read one classic novel a month
4.Learn to love my body
5. run a marathon

five I kept
1. Do a triathlon-2008
2. marry Bob-1995
3,Have a baby-1998
4. Have another baby-2003
5. Begin homeschooling-2007

and five I will make for this year

1.spiritual-spend time daily with God and continue to grow into the woman he wants me to become
2.physical- to push myself, and continue to strengthen my body by doing a half marathon, yes I lowered my expectations.
3.friends- to not judge,criticize, or assume I know any one's life story, but instead listen more and talk less
4.Family- To become more positive in my role as a stay at home, homeschooling pilots wife. Allow time for just my husband and I so that we may continue to grow closer together and be an example to our children. To stop and answer my children's endless questions, savoring the time I get to spend with them. To love my children as individuals and get to know each one of their unique gifts.
5. personal-To take more time to post on my blog, which has taught me the love of writing, the healing of humor, and the support of a friend.

Now these all sound really good, but I know somewhere I will get lost, sidetracked and forget almost all of these..My busy days of hustle and bustle,my everyday stresses, and life will try and take my focus off of my resolutions. I know too well, that I will become distracted, and unmotivated, but I will give it my best shot, let you in on the progress and of course, there is always next year resolutions.

George and I had an awesome time with you guys on New Year's Eve! It was so wonderful to be together as we welcomed in 2009! I love you guys and just wished we lived closer. Who knows? Hmmm, it could happen someday soon..ya never know! And creating more memories with Mom getting pedicures was, let's say, priceless. Diarrhea brown?! LOL
