Resolutions in Advance

Wow.  I can't believe I haven't posted since much has happened since then!  I was thinking about posting all of the "highlights" I've "missed" this year, but then that isn't really what a true blog is for.... so I decided that those things just won't make it into the blog.  This year has been crazy busy, and I regret that I haven't had the time to devote much time to my "me-time" passions of reading, blogging, and scrapbooking.

Everyone has a hard time keeping New Year's resolutions.  It's especially hard for me, because I don't even MAKE them.  Well, I've decided all that changes this year...I am making resolutions.  And I am posting them, so that I will also keep said resolutions.  I figure if something's in writing, and published to where others can read, it's more likely to happen.  So, here goes nothing:

2011 New Year's Resolutions

1.  I will make time for myself.  I will regularly update my blog.  I will start scrapbooking again (at least get my wedding and honeymoon album finished!).  I will read...I have a nook that hasn't been touched since school's time to use it!
2.  I will start exercising.  My husband and I will take regular walks.  If the weather's bad, or the temperature is too hot/cold, I will use one of my new Wii games
3.  I will stop drinking carbonated beverages.  I'm not supposed to anyway.  Ok, if' I'm desperately craving a soda,  I will at least pour it in a glass and let it go flat first.
4.  I will have regular conversations with God.  Not just at church.  Or when I want something.  Or before meals.
5.  I will spend time with friends.  Thanks to Facebook, I can keep up with my friends' lives, but I need to spend time with THEM, not the computer.  If they live far away, I will call.  If they live in town, we will have dinner parties, games... something.   Connections that were once strong seem weak, and I think it's because lives are busy...but they should never be too busy!

Wish me luck, it's gonna take a lot of work... but I think if I manage to keep my resolutions all year long, 2011 will be the best one yet!
