Don't Welcome Me Back Just Yet

At the begining of 2011, I wrote down some GOALS I have for myself for the next year. I haven't taken much of a look at them over the past  month so I thought I would share them here.

  1. Set Up a Family, Weekly Meal Plan: tried it one week, need to tweak a few things to make it work for our family, but going ok
  2. Sew & Sell Sewn Items on Etsy: haven't sewn much yet, I have to get to work
  3. Make an Apron for My Grandmother in IL: need to get to work sewing again :o)
  1. Take a Photography Class: scheduled for March 5th...i'm excited!!!
  2. Attend a Marriage Conference (not by myself...that would be wierd): conference scheduled for Dan and I March 11-13th.
  3. Go on a Girls Get-A-Way Weekend: in the works.
  4. Take a Cooking Class: found one in Salem, just need to schedule/pay for it.
  5. Sew More Aprons: this sewing stuff has obviously been my one downfall.
  1. Take a Theology/Biblical Studies Type Class
  2. Try EVERYTHING on My Crafty List: this is going to be a big task.
  3. Catch Up on Scrapbooking: going to a scrapcamp in May.
General Life Goals:
  1. Loose Weight by Exersicing 4-6 Days a Week: been on a roll since October on this goal.
  2. DON'T WANT, Be Content With What I Have
  3. Go to Church Weekly: this can be hard with 2 young children...but I want to try harder.
  4. Go on a Date Night with My Husband Once a MONTH: we have tried the weekly thing and it just doesn't seem to work (and gets expensive with kids/babysitters), so we are going all out ONE night a month.
  5. Work Harder on My Marriage and Relationship with My Hubbs: Try to spend one night a week focusing on just us (watching a movie, playing a game, doing something silly, etc.). Don't get into fights as easily. PRAY for him. Be positive and encouraging.
  6. Search for Fellowship & Community: through back yard BBQ's, church communities, friends going deeper...whatever it takes and where the Lord leads.
  7. Write 25 Messages/Lessons About What I Learn: goal is to post them here.
  8. Be Passionate Daily
  9. Praise Often: thank the Lord for EVERYTHING He is.
  10. Pray MORE: never cease praying...when I think about it...I want to pray about it.
  11. Recognize People's Lives and Important Events
  12. Be More of a Friend/Giver, Without Expectation
  13. Be Honest and Open: will be attempting to do this here.
I hope by me writing down these goals of inspires you to write your own down and do everything you can to stick to them. God Bless you on your journey.
