Happy New Year!

I pray that 2010 is a year full of blessings and grace and growth.

2009 was quite the year - Andrew's and my wedding and relaxing honeymoon in Vancouver, Amy and Dave's wedding, my uncle's wedding in Boston, the birth of our precious baby boy, the birth of 1 nephew and several friends' babies, my Aunt and Uncle's 25th Wedding Anniversary, my grandparents' 50th, and my parents' 25th (between the three of them - 100 years of marriage celebrated this year! What a testament to God's grace.) Andrew and I moved to the 420sqare foot apartment, painted it, and moved out again - into this amazing blessing of a townhouse. 
We have celebrated great things together, and we have endured some hardships - but through all of it, God has shown Himself faithful.  We are so blessed.

Normally, I don't make resolutions when the calendar flips to a new 4-digit date.  This year, though, I'm finding that I need a little extra motivation on some things I've tried and failed to start over the last few months. order to have just a little bit of accountability on those resolutions, I'm going to list them here. 

I decided to break them into categories, and keep them simple, in hopes that simpler things are more attainable.  We'll see how it goes, I guess.

Personal Health
* exercise 30 min 3x per week
* eat 4 fruits/vegetables each day
* drink 3 glasses of water each day

Spiritual/Intellectual Health
* 15 minutes of devotions each day
* 15 minutes of reading each day - novels, non-fiction, whatever - blogs don't count.
* learn to use my sewing machine effectively

Family Health
* two uninterrupted 15 minute periods of play with William every day
* help William settle into a more stable sleeping routine
* have date-night once per month (probably I will draw heavily from Love, Actually for inspiration)

Hopefully, between categorization, managable time-periods, and a printed copy on the wall, I can achieve all of these. 

What are you hoping to accomplish in 2010?

On the Menu: soft-shell tacos and leftover chicken-fried rice

  1. Happy New Year and the best with your sane and sensible goals! What are mine? Well, like yours, mine are categorized and I'm still working on writing them down. I process these things slowly but it's all coming together and I feel good about it. Perhaps I'll write a blog post about (some of) them when they are done! Some are a bit racy for the blog--but you never know! :)
