New Year's Resolutions . . . In March

Yeah, I know, I haven't posted in a long while. Needless to say some friends have gotten after me.

The past three months have been taxing. I am soooooo ready for sleep-in mornings and lazy days (a.k.a. a vacation). I'm not by any means unhappy, things have been really good, I'm just really tired. Work has occupied a lot of time. My two right-hand men have abandoned me, well . . . not entirely. Steven went off to serve a mission in Washington DC and Austin decided to start school this semester which translates into him only being able to work 3 days a week, hence I have two extremely green employees. I forgot what it was like to train someone and how long the process actually takes before they're up to speed. It's exhausting!

A hold has been placed on so many things in my life and to avoid making that hold permanent I've decided to make some resolutions. Yeah I know, I'm about three months late, but better late than never, right? The idea is by actually getting my goals typed out it'll spawn action rather than passing thoughts like I'm going to get in shape! Sweets, who needs them? . . . Is that chocolate cake? Yeah unfortunately that pretty much sums up my resolve as of late. Encouraging isn't it?

But spring has sprung, the sun is shining and I can't help but get excited about being productive! There's something about beautiful weather that never fails to turn me into a crazy, cleaning, OCD freak. I'm not sure if my husband loves or hates it. Probably both. So without further ado I present my goals, in no particular order, for the year 2008, which now apparently begins in March. :)

1. Drink more water
2. Develop an addiction for running
3. Early to bed, early to rise
4. Scrapbook, scrapbook, scrapbook!
5. Throw away junk! If I haven't used it in the last year I really don't need it.
6. Deep clean & organize my entire home, room by room
7. Read my scriptures & attend the temple more
8. Eat healthier
9. Save more for important things, spend less on silly things
10. Have fun, laugh, travel, stress less

Most New Year's Resolutions fail by March, so I guess you are the smart one for starting yours after the fact. I remember training newbies and I hated it. Mostly because I had to fire most of them!!!!! Glad to hear you're busy. Glad to see you blogging. Hope to see PICTURES actually grace the page of your blog!!!

I know, I finally knuckled down and wrote a post. One day, hopefully soon, my page will look cute and have pictures. It takes me longer to do things because I don't have internet at my house. So the only time I get on the internet is at work. It kind of makes it hard to add pictures and customize our blog, but Gary has a whizbang plan to borrow internet from our neighbors. I promise, I'll get there.

1. Convince Brittany that we need the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III Digital SLR Camera.
2. ...

I guess that is the end of the list...
