So tomorrow starts a new year. To be completely honest, I am OVERJOYED to start 2010! For our family 2009 was the pits! Yes, we have a lot to be thankful for, but 2009 was exhausting physically, mentally, and financially. As a lot of the country experienced, my husband suffered a job change, 2 knee surgeries and we now own 2 houses thanks to the lovely economy!
There are some bright spots in our year – the highlight being that after almost 3 years of waiting we finally have an infant daughter in our family that will be bringing home from Asia in 2010! Yes, I will have a short daughter – but that’s fine! We are an equal opportunity family. She will be joining the crazy mix of 4 big brothers. I did my job of repopulating the world with 4 tall boys that will someday turn into 4 tall men! You tall women can thank me later!
So, looking back on 2009, I set a few goals a.k.a New Year’s resolutions. They mostly involve finding more time for the important things in my life. I want to be able to work smarter and not harder in order to spend more time with my precious children. Of course, I would also like to lose a few (or more than a few) pounds (dang it) and feel healthier this next year.
So, I thought I’d see how you do with setting goals.
