New Year, New Goals

Umm.....hi. Remember me? ....crickets....

Yeah, I'm the one who fell of the blogging bandwagon. You see, I haven't posted anything on this blog since October. OCTOBER. The reason? I have no idea. Just lots going on, and the blog got pushed to the back burner.

But, with the new year here, it's time to jump back in and get to blogging again. Hopefully.

The new year always brings new resolutions and goals. Whether we say "oh I don't do New Year Resolutions" or not, I think subconsciously we all kinda do in some form or another. I'm not one to set "resolutions," but I do have a few goals in mind.

Some goals:
1. Be better about blogging. I love blogging, and I love looking back and reading about my life, even if no one else ever comes here and reads or comments. If I don't blog about it, sometimes I forget it....so blogging is a good thing.
2. The dreaded one....EXERCISE more. I know, I know. It seems like everyone tends to make this a goal as the new year approaches, but seriously. I really need to. Like, clothes are getting uncomfortable, and I am NEVER happy with the way things fit me/feel on me...and I LOVE cute clothes, so why shouldn't I get to enjoy them? In order to enjoy them, I need to get back down a couple of sizes. Not to mention, I just want to be healthier and feel better. And now that it's here on the blog, I feel somewhat more accountable for this goal.
3. Pray more, worry less. No explanation needed.
4. Create at least 100 scrapbook layouts in 2013. In 2011, I created 150, and in 2012 I hit an even 100. I should be able to do that again this year.

So...what about you? What are your goals? I'm not gonna lie. Setting goals is sometimes scary. But goals are meant to better yourself and possibly others too, so it shouldn't be so scary, right?

Here's to livin' the dream in 2013! ;)

Well, Hello stranger!! hee!hee! :)

I am glad to see this and that all is well down in your neck of the woods!! You did much better this year in the scrapping dept. than I did. I went from 125-150 pages/yr down to about 53! eek! I am not a fast scrapper and sometimes feel like I am locked in my room when I should be spending time with my kids and hubby. I have a child that graduates in 3.5 yrs! I know from the first one that time goes by at warp speed!!! I just think my priorities are different right now.
