Resolutions for 2009....

Well, it's officially a New Year!!! Did I make resolutions? Yep! Now if I tell you then I'm held to them or else yinz guys will say I'm a failure! Ah, what the heck...I'll tell ya anyway...



1. Get to work on time. This is a tough one for me as I'm known as the late one. Sure, I get up early enough...early enough for two people to be on time for work but for some reason I just don't do it. Anyway, my motto, hanging in my office is "it' sure makes for a long day when you get to work ontime." (maybe I should take that down!) Just for the record, I got to work on Friday at 8:59 am...day one...a success!



2. Read more. If you look at any past post pics, you will see the library of books I own. I love books...I love the feel of books (which is probably why I don't own a Kindle...plus they cost boo-coo bucks!) Coffee and books are even better...thinking about installing a coffee corner in my diningroom/library (just kidding Glenn!) But unfortunately I acquire more books than I read at any given time! I do manage to read a little everyday but I want to increase that! For the record, if you read too, please check my links to Paperback Swap and Shelfari...two great sites for readers!



3. Lose Weight.....Okay, let's make this one, get healthy! Tho I lost for my wedding last year....the doc said half came back! My problem is that I eat when I'm happy....and I'm freakin' always happy!!!



4. Finish WIP's......I love to craft but have so many "works-in-progress" (for you non-crafters)! This resolution could be coupled with no procrastinating! As some of my WIP's include cleaning up our cellar (aka basement....for non-Pittsburghers), blogging more...etc...



5. Grow in my Faith.....this one is on a little more serious note. Growing in my faith will cover all the other things I need to do in my life....sorta a domino effect. Growing in my faith will bring me closer to God and what He needs for me to do in this world.....kinder to friends and family...no gossiping or listening to it.....listening ear.....a closed mouth (except when I'm happy and eat....see resolution #3) and just a closer walk with God in general!



Okay...now you know it!!! I've revealed to you my goals for 2009!!! Feel free to call me on any of them when I rant and rave about things!!! (and I will!) Hey as a start...check out my Book Blog cause I've posted a new read I just finished....I'll keep you updated on those reviews...hopefully they will be often!



Well, enjoy your weekend.....and this brand new year....till next time, yinz crazy guys!!

Good luck with your resolutions Lucy. DH and I need to lose weight and get fit this year; we're starting with going out for walks on an evening after we've eaten our evening meal.

Happy New Year to you & your family - I think it's time for me to reevaluate this past year & get on to my resolutions as well!

Good luck with your resolutions, Lucy! I'm getting ready for Year 4 of the Get Fit program... I weighed myself to see how much I gained since last year and I was surprised to see that I maintained. Woo Hoo! (You can DO it!!) Like you, I have a TON of books. Mine are hardcover, though. I really should downsize... Just can't bear to throw books away. Seems like a travesty to me! Before I ramble on any farther... Happy New Year!
