So this morning as I was sitting at our kitchen table - I began thinking about all of the things I would like to change in 2009. I'm good at sitting and thinking about what I want to rearrange or implement - I'm just not always real great about actually DOING it. I'm the girl that can spend hours making lists and goals and aspirations - but just can't seem to check anything off. Ya know?

But 2009 will be different. (Yes, I say that every year about this time. But really, I'm committed.)

Alright. Here are a few of my New Year's Resolutions:

1) Starting January 1st, 2009 I will begin my 1 year journey through the Bible. I bought a chronological Bible for only $15 a few months ago and I'm ready to dive in. I'm expecting good and wonderful things to come from this and I'm sure you'll be hearing about it throughout the new year :) Are you excited?

2) We recently bought a home that needs some updating. We currently have pink and purple carpet throughout our entire house. There is pink border in our master bedroom with ballet dancers on it. (My husband just loves that.) My son's room has flowers on the walls and our kitchen is in desperate need of a face lift. I could go on and on. Don't get me wrong. I'm very thankful for our home - it just needs some TLC. And in 2009 - it will get just that. The Hubby and I are putting together a plan. There will be a budget (a very tight one, might I add) for every project - and a deadline for it to be done. Out with the old - in with the new. It's time to make this house a home.

3) I'm committed to finding my 2 year old a preschool. Just for a few days a week for a couple of hours. Since he stays home with Mommy all day - he really needs some social time. I'm praying about where he should go and such. This is kinda scary for me, I must admit. The thought of leaving my child somewhere for a couple of hours is terrifying. I know. I know. People do it everyday and their kids turn out great - but I'm kinda paranoid about these things. I'll probably just sit outside and keep an eye on him through a window or something the whole time he is there anyway :) (And you know I will.)

4) Scheduled time with the handsome man I married. Our family is growing - and time with my hubs should be a priority. In 2009 - we will make sure it happens. Dinner and a movie. Taking a trip to campus to reminisce about old times. Or just sitting and talking or praying. It's important and we will treat it as such.

Those are just a few. So, I was wondering - what are some things that you would like to change in 2009? Leave me a comment and I will make sure I pray about them for you :) It would be my pleasure!

Have a fabulous weekend, kiddos!
