Normally, when he gets up that early, I go back to sleep right away. This time all I can think about is all I need to do this morning before church... or all that I want to do before church. (Writing this was not on my list but oh well!) I have several things I want to accomplish this year. I guess you could call them New Years Resolutions but I won't because then that would mean I probably won't get them done since most people break theirs. They are pretty typical but very important to me!
I want to have a closer relationship with the Lord! No matter how close we are to him, we can always be closer. I'm tired of that "comfortable" feeling that I have had lately. I want to pray more and read my bible more. Last year, my resolution was to read through the whole bible... well, let's just say I got pretty bored with the Old Testament and stopped somewhere around Joshua! That's bad, I know! I need to come up with some kind of plan that will help me get through the hard chapters so I won't just give up :)
I want to be a better wife, daughter, daughter in law, sister, friend, etc... Enough said!
I want to get this crazy house in order!!! There are still tons of things that need to be unpacked and organized. I worked on this for a long time yesterday and I have a huge pile of clothes I am getting rid of. I have a hard time getting rid of cute clothes, shoes, purses, smell good lotions, blah, blah, blah- but if I have not used it or worn it in a while, its gotta GO! I do love our house but its not as big as I would like for it to be to store all of my things that "I may want to wear or use someday!!" (and it drives the hubby crazy, ha!)
We want to do better this year and get all of our debt paid off and save some money. If we ever get that tax credit thing back for being a first time home buyer.... Ummm....$8000.... that would help A LOT! We are going to use that money to pay off Josh's student loans, a couple of other small loans we have, and then put the rest in savings. I know we waste a ton of money by going out to eat all the time and buying things we don't need. But we are going to try and be better about that :)
And I am sure like everyone else, I want to get in shape!!! I don't have to look like I just stepped out of a Victoria's Secret catalog or Glamour magazine.. (because I can't airbrush my body in the real world!) But I do want to be in shape and work out and eat healthy. Just feel good about myself. Don't take that the wrong way!! I am happy with myself but there are a few things I would change if I could... I mean, I am a woman and we always want what we don't have, right? :)
There are a few more things I hope to accomplish this year but that's all I will say for now! I am needing to make some coffee so I can make it through this day! Have a great day :)
