New Years Resolutions:

To be more of a mother.  I find it hard to do things with the children.  I myself never really felt like I was the normal child.  I don't know how to play with a child.  But this year I am going to make myself try to play.  I will pay more attention to what my children like and do my best to enjoy that with them.

To watch our finances better.  We don't have the best financial situation and I sometimes blame that on my husband, but it is just as much my fault.  I need to make a plan and stick to it.  My goal is to actually put some money back for emergencies.  Maybe the Dave Ramsey plan is something I should look in to.

To become more active.  Lately I have been lazier than usual.  I am placing blame on the weather but really it is me.  I have gained 20 pounds in the last few months.  My ultimate goal is to lose 100 pounds.  Although I know that is going to be very hard, I at least need to start on it.

I am not going to try to quit smoking or eat better like everyone else because I know that those are definitely resolutions that I will not keep.  I believe that my ideas are better for me anyway.  It will not only improve my life but the lives of my family.
