Happy New Year...and a few New Year's Resolutions too!

We've managed to come up with a few New Year's resolutions...what about you?  Have you given up completely?  I used to never make resolutions because I never kept them, but decided that this year would be the year that I would take the time for myself and my kids to make sure I follow through with them.  It's only fair!  So what are they?  Well, I won't tell you all of them (you'd get bored), but here are the highlights....

I will put a stronger focus on losing weight...I tried this past year, but didn't put enough effort into it and stayed pretty much at the same point so I will be exercising more and making a dent in the numbers.  We will be inviting friends over the house more often!  When my husband and I first married, we had friends over almost every other night and at least weekly but since we moved to Texas it just hasn't been the same (so watch for the invites, or remind us to invite you over more).  With our schedules and crazy life, we neglected that, so this year it will change!  First off, that means cleaning and organizing the house!  We will be starting a family game night each week so that it becomes second nature for our boys as they grow up! 

My youngest (age 2) said he wants to learn to ride his bike better and move up in swimming classes.  My oldest (age 4) said he wants to make sure we take the dog on walks each week and be able to swim the length of the pool!  The list goes on and on, but I won't bore you with the details.  We tried to make quantifiable goals that once they were completed, we could check them off so it's more of a 2011 to-do list.  It seems manageable, it seems doable, and really, that's what counts!

So Happy New Year to you!  May all your resolutions be kept this year!
