2010 Goals

I think my goal to loose weight has been a repeat every year for the last 10 years. Since I never make progress on it, I've decided to set myself some new attainable ones.

1) Declutter - A house with 3 kids can accumulate a LOT of toys and stuff! I purchased 6 plastic tubs from Target over the xmas break and have plans to pick up each night and get the kids in the routine of helping me clean up now that they are a bit older. Although at 3 and 4, they still prefer to dump the toys out then help pick up and I often have to ask five times and withhold priveledges before they agree to help. I'm also known to be a bad packrat and am learning to either pitch it or drop off at the goodwill if it's not in use.

2) Photography - I want to learn how to use my external flash and get better at metering. I've found a good on-line tutorial, just got to make myself read through all the material and practice, practice!

3) Routines - my kids are still night owls, they can stay up later than I can and often don't sleep til past 11pm. I'm going to have to set some rules, like no tv after 9 and floss, floss, floss. Had to throw the last bit in cuz I just forget to do it for them everynight.

4)Lastly, I want to journal more. So many of my layouts just record dates and simple sentences of who,what, when, & where. I want to remember the stories, the feelings, and all those special moments that only we can tell. I completed over 200 pages in 2009 and here's my first page for the year. Based on a sketch by the talented Julie Bonner. I love her stuff.

I used to be an avid scrapbooker. I haven't done a page in almost 3 years...I miss it! Your pages are beautiful...what a talent. I understand about the journaling. that was my biggest struggle. And it's the most important part!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comment. You asked about my headboard and comforter. the "headboard" is basically just two fancy drapery panels hung high behind my bed. And all the bedding came from Overstock.com. One of my absolute FAVORITE places to shop!

Hope to see you again.
