Goals for 2012

I really hate New Years Resolutions.

But it seems like a good idea to set goals every year.

Here are mine, in no specific order:

1. Be more organized!!!

Being organized has escaped me, I used to be the most organized person I know.  When I had Davis in 2009 my organization went to the dogs.  It drives me crazy, makes me feel bad about myself and sometimes keeps me awake.  I know, I'm a weirdo.  Organization is just my thing and this year my goal is to be 100% organized instead of 50% organized.

2. Keep losing that weight!!

I'm down 20 lbs. since March 2011.  I've got 8 lbs. to go before I reach my goal.  I WILL do this.

3. Be nicer. 

I know I'm always nice, but I feel like sometimes I could be a little kinder and more appreciative.

4. Spend less, save more.

We do a pretty good job of saving each month, but we could save more if we were not so impulsive with our shopping habits and so bad with our going out to dinner habits.  We really want to move into a much newer (maybe brand new) and bigger home, in order for that to happen we really need to cut our spending habits.  I know we can do this.

5. Take a vacation, sans Davis.

We haven't been on a real vacation since July 2008.  I NEED a real vacation, a real vacation does not include Davis.  He would be awesome, but it wouldn't be relaxing with him, besides, he loves Grandma's house.

Do you have any goals for the new year?

I feel you on the organization. I so want my pre-kids organization back! But my main goal is to drop 10 more pounds and look awesome as the maid of honor in a friend's wedding at the end of April. Good luck to you on your goals!

These are good goals to have.

I think the past year has been the most unorganized I have ever been. Now that Henry is here, I NEED to get organized again.

And saving more and spending less is VERY much on our list too!

I also want to get back into blogging more, I have been very random about blogging the past year.

I also want to just enjoy EVERY moment with Henry and not get so busy or focused on other things that I loose sight of this time with him. (I am a planner and sometimes get caught up in the future I forget about now)
