2011 Reflections and 2012 Resolutions

Happy New Year's Eve!!!

I definitely am working on making my goals year-round, but the new year is always a pivotal time to take inventory on how far we have come. When we were younger, and even up until a couple years ago, my mom would make us write our "vision statements" for the year in addition to spiritual, physical, and mental goals. It is a great thing to do no matter where you are in life....

Last year I shared Pumpkin's resolutions with you: 
"1. No bas (bottles) - so far he is only taking a couple at night with water only...2. No more night time feedings (we have cut down on the milk A LOT, now he doesn't fuss as much and his belly is a lot less bloated too...3. Sleeping in the big boy bed4. Potty training - even his teacher thinks that he is ready, time to whip out the pull ups!"
I am so excited for him because everything was done, well except for the complete potty training, but I am hoping that by his birthday we will be good...pray! It's amazing to look back and see how far he has developed in just one year - last year I talked about how he was starting to call me "mommy" all the time...awww That is definitely a great example of why I started my blog in the first place. I want to be able to go back and remember all the wonderful things about life right now.

This year Pumpkin's resolutions are: 

  1. Finish potty training!
  2. Start reading - if anyone has any good phonics type book recommendations please share!
  3. Get on a soccer team
  4. Learn karate in a real, controlled setting and not just on Power Rangers
  5. Behavior improvement - Don't get me wrong, he is a great kid, but we just some fine-tuning when it comes to listening to his mommy and following directions in public...LOL
My resolutions are a work in progress but so far... 
  1. Study the Word daily and join a ministry at church.
  2. Make better food choices and exercise regularly.
  3. Generate more medical school-help content and income from the blog.
  4. KNOCK OUT my Boards. 
In my marriage I want to... (also a work in progress tho) 
  1. Carve out a REGULAR date night in our schedules.
  2. Go on a vacation together.  
  3. Maybe read a marriage book(s) together...
  4. Work on formulating our "get out of debt" plan together and set more financial goals.

Do you make resolutions/goals for the New Year? What are some of yours?
