Happy New Year!!

Are you ready for tonight? Big plans or just laid back and relax with family? Dave and I do not have any kids home tonight, but we are just going to go to an early dinner and movie. Hopefully we can stay up until midnight!!
New Year's resolutions are a source of much discussion. Some people say you should never make resolutions because you will never keep them, other people say you should.
I believe that it is a great idea to make goals for the new year. I don't know if I want to say resolutions because it sounds so permanent. "I resolve to do this!!".
But I think the beginning of something new (2009) is a good time to give yourself goals for the new year in what you would like to accomplish financially, mentally, spiritually and physically. So where does organizing come in? It can fit into almost all of the categories. To be organized and know where things are makes things move smoother, makes you feel better and makes your family happier. You ultimately end up saving money because you aren't wasting time looking for things or spending extra money re buying things you can't find.
Take some time tomorrow with pen and paper in hand...find a quiet place to be by yourself and just sit and think what you would like the new year to bring. Is it losing weight (my goal last year and I have lost all but 3 pounds of my 50 pound goal), getting in shape (one of my goals for this year), saving money this year or reorganizing that room that you can't open the door into!
Be realistic! Don't give yourself a goal that you know you can't accomplish (finding the perfect man and having 2 babies before July!)
Organizing your thoughts for the new year can bring things into focus to start off fresh!!

New years always seems so overrated. I love to stay home with the kids and family instead of trying to force a good time.

Great post! One of my goals is to lose weight after the twins.

You lost 50 pounds last year? Wow! You really are an inspiration!
