Happy 2008

02 Jan

Welcome to 2008!

Wow. Another year gone by and it’s already time to make resolutions for the next one.

Before I make new resolutions I thought I would go to the way back machine and see how last year’s worked out.

The successes: I blogged a lot more than previously. I learned how to play videos. I adore my family and I think I’m more patient and nicer to them, and on most weeks, I made it to the gym 4+ times.

The failures: I never actually made it to my book group. Which is sad because I loved those ladies and miss hanging out and getting good book tips. I consider my desire to spend more time outside with Jeffrey a failure because we took very few bike trips and I had wished for many more.

I didn’t do too bad. So for this year, it’s more of the same. Here are my hopes and desires for the coming year.

  • Figure out how to fix the blog so that everything isn’t double spaced. I’m sure no one else notices this but everytime I hit the return key it double spaces. I hate that.
  • Bike more with the boys. Once it gets light out in the evenings, I want to pile on the bikes and put on some miles.
  • Figure out how to eat more together as a family.
  • Actually eat healthier foods. I’m pretty good at making sure that Jeffrey gets a good diet, but I’m not so good about myself.
  • Keep working out. But be a little easier on myself when my body just doesn’t cooperate. I need to realize that sometimes the fibro just kicks my ass and I need to respect it.
  • Finish or at least continue working on Jeffrey’s scrapbook.
  • Actually remember to do the Fun Monday blogging.
  • Get more sleep. We’re hoping to add to the Meehan household again this year and I think I’m going to need all the rest I can get.

So. We’ll see how I do with this list. The food thing is going to be a challenge. Hope everyone had a happy happy New Year and enjoys all the gifts that life has brought to us.

    You have a better list than I do…mine is still blank!

    Wait…ADDING ON TO THE MEEHAN FAMILY???????? OH my gosh…I can’t wait for that news. I am so happy for both of you…yeah, rest up now, you will need all the sleep you can get.

    Congratulations on kicking caffeine. I know that can be hard, with the headachs and all, but you are a strong person, you survived delivering Jeffrey. You can do anything!

    I didn’t make any resolutions, but I have wanted to make a scrapbook for my baby girl. She turns 1 the 22nd!
