It's the time for goals, resolutions...and all that.

Last year, I was so on top of this. I had a post up on Jan. 1. This year, I thought about it, but just could never really finalize anything as far as resolutions are concerned. Last year, my resolution was to try something new each month. I think I did 11 out of the 12 months and I'm actually still working on the last one. Woops!

As Jan. 1 came and went, I was still left with...nothing. I hopped around and read lots of other bloggers' resolutions and then things started to come together.

What I realized is I'm more of a list person. I love making lists, but what I love more is crossing things off of a list!

So here it is, albeit 8 days into the new year, my New Years "To-Do" list!

  • Finish reading the Bible! I started last year reading one of those "read-through-the-bible-in-a-year books and did really good up until about November. I'm still at Nov. 6 right now, but I am determined to finish it! Even if it takes me 2 years!!
  • Tone up! I could probably lose about 10 pounds or so, but what I really want to do is tone up. Get rid of the jigglies! Know what I mean?!
  • Organize my pantry! This pantry is what inspired me! It just doesn't get any cuter than this! I love the glass containers that hold the cupcake wrappers. Mine are shoved in the back of a cabinet. So my goal this year is to organize, complete with containers, labels, etc., my pantry. It needs a good cleaning out, too, but it sure would be nice to actually FIND stuff I was looking for!
  • Go see a chiropractor! My back has seemed to have gotten worse and worse. I know I need to get it looked at, but my unusually freakish phobia of doctors has prevented me from doing so. But sometimes I feel like an 80 year old so I can't imagine what it's going to be like when I get older. I really need to take care of it now. Ugh...
  • Pay off at least 1 credit card! I wish there was only 1 to pay off, but unfortunately this is not the case. I think Uncle Sam is going to help me pay off at least one. I really just need to win the lottery!
  • More crafts! I've always been a crafty person, but have just kind of let fall by the wayside. And I don't like that! I have got SO much stuff (ribbons, buttons, paper, stickers, etc.) I really shouldn't have to buy much stuff. Just want to use what I have and create masterpieces! My goal is to make at least one craft a month. We'll see...
  • Blog more! Hoping to get some inspiration in a few weeks at Blissdom! So excited to get some good ideas and spend a girls weekend with my gals! As much as I would like to blog everyday, my goal is to blog at least once a week. That's doable for me I think. Mainly because my life is about as exciting as the mating habits of wombats.
So there you have it! Should keep me busy this year!

Go to Kelly's Korner to read more.

Love the resolutions! And I really like your header!

I did NaBloPoMo in November, and I really got blog-addicted again.

And that pantry... WOW! I should work on that this weekend since it's a whopping 18 degrees and I won't have to work tomorrow. I definitely ought to take before & after pictures!
