Last night we celebrated the New Year quietly, in the literal sense, my dad went to bed early because he worked today. Our cheers were on the whispered side.
We woke up to huge snowflakes falling. By afternoon, the snow was starting to melt, not that it made too much of a dent in the 2 1/2 feet of snow still on the ground. I am sure there is more in the forecast.
2008 was a really good year to us. We bought our first house in February, bought the CricKet store in August, Brinley started Kindergarten in August, and the best part...our sweet baby Sarah came in November.
Last year I had no goals, I think that after losing Olivia, I just wanted to make it through the year. This year I hope to accomplish the goals I set for myself.
*lose all of the baby weight (although I am thrilled with the outcome, I don't recommend having babies a year apart)
*spend more time with my little family
*more dates with Matt
*cook dinner more often
*sewing projects, such as quilts and clothing for the girls
*read more books
*read and study the B of M
*organize, organize, organize
*insulate the house
*new roof for the house
*start finishing the basement
* more craft projects with Brinley
*put in a garden
* remember family members birthdays and send cards
* keep up on my blog better
* work on scrapbooks
*run bloomsday (its been a few years)
*cut out soda completely
*get Brinley into gymnastics
*get Brinley swim lessons
*spend more time outside
*travel to see some family and friends
I think this is just the start of what things I want to accomplish this year. We'll see how this goes and go from there.
I hope that everyone has an awesome 2009.
