Resolutions

I know it's almost the end of January, but I wanted to post my 2011 resolutions anyway. I love to be able to look back on past goals and see how far I've come and what still needs to be worked on.

So, last years goals were:
1. Organize the house - I made some great improvements
2. Make a menu calendar every month again - I did through June
3. Keep exercising - I pooped out on that one
4. Get to a size 4 - DID IT!!!!
5. Eat less sugar - uh, no.
6. Potty train Brynnlee - DID IT!!!!
7. Read more with the kids - Not as much as I wanted to
8. FHE EVERY week - Improved
9. Scripture study with the kids - Improved
10. Attend the temple once a month - Improved
11. Entertain more - Yes.
12. Do more service (I'm shooting for at least once a week) - It wasn't once a week, but it was a great improvement
13. Take more day trips as a family - Still need to work on that

Last year was a great, great year. That's not to say we didn't have any problems, because we did, some very big ones in fact. But what made the biggest difference, I think, was that Brett spent more time with us. It makes me happy to have him around. It also helped that I was making my own money and not feeling like I was suffocating as in 2009.

So YAY for improvements!

And speaking of improvements, I intend to keep making them. I have high hopes for this year and we're already off to a great start!

So, my 2011 Resolutions are as follows:

1. Read aloud more to the kids
2. Hold family scripture study, family prayer, FHE, & temple attendance regularly
3. Study the conference talks thoroughly
4. Organize the house; have less clutter
5. Have more patience: "Keep Calm & Carry On"
6. Give more hugs, kisses, and encouragement
7. Travel more

The kids' 2011 Resolutions are:

1. Clean the house more
2. Spend more time with our family
3. Read
4. Take more day trips
5. Be nicer to each other
6. Take better care of our toys
7. Do FHE every week

Like I said, we are off to a great start and hope to keep it going for the rest of the year!

It is very bold of you to post your resolutions. I am not that brave but I'm sure that is why you succeed. Way to go Hannah.

Thanks everybody. If I post them, I know they're set in stone and I have to work on them. We'll see how it goes.
