End of 2006

Today I have spent time thinking about 2007 and what I want for the year...

Of course I have had the normal thoughts of wanting to get back to exercising, eating right and in general taking better care of myself.

But I have been thinking more about what I really want in my life. I am in my thirties and there are still so many things I want out of my life...and I want to start to do some of them. When I was in my twenties, I always thought...there is time in the future. Now I am realizing that now is the time.

I have always been a person to be on the go. go. go. This year I want to slow down, take time to call friends and catch up with them. Write a letter or two to my mom (she would love that). Finish some of the artsy projects I have started. Learn how to crochet. Continue writing in my blog and meeting the new friend from there.

I also want to be ok, with spending some of my hard earned money on myself. I have always taken care of others, weither it was children, family, homes, and hubbys. I want to do things for me now.

My other big goal is one that has become a thorn in my side. I REALLY want to finish my education. I am so close to having my degree in business and life keeps getting in the way of me finishing. This year I am going to make life get out of the way so I can finish and be proud of finishing.

I am ready for 2007.

If I slow down, then all I do is sit on my fat butt. So it's GO GO GO FOR ME!

But good luck on that slowing down thing.

Actually, I'm pretty slow as it is, though I drive somewhat fast.

dorky dad- I have the same problem of driving too fast, but (knock on wood) I have never been caught!!!

And don't forget the Legos!

I too am still a Legos kid and I still build the models all the time...

You are still a very young kitten, good luck with the 2007 goals!
