Happy New Year!

Two New Year's Resolutions postcardsImage via Wikipedia
Happy New Year to all my Retirement Journey friends!  I am looking forward to 2011.  2010 had many ups and downs for me but I am planning for 2011 to be progressively uphill.

Do you make New Year's resolutions?  I don't usually but decided to try it again this year.  What can it hurt?!!  Sooo, my New Year's resolutions are:

  1. Organize my craft room (it is scary right now!).
  2. Get up at 5:00 every morning except Sunday.  Trust me, I need the extra hour:)
  3. Exercise a minimum of five days a week.  I have a treadmill, weight set with bench and Wii Fit Plus--no excuses.
  4. Lose 30 pounds.
  5. Read at least one non-fiction book per month.  That should be easy because I love self-help books.
  6. Make all the cards I give this year, including Christmas cards!
  7. Become reacquainted with great website to help you get organized and keep your house clean!  Should have kept up my friendship with the Flylady!
  8. Remember to take more pictures.
  9. Paint, paper and tile my kitchen.
  10. Set goals for each of my resolutions.
Hope you are able to keep your resolutions!  I am going to blog about my resolutions one day per week so you can keep up with my progress...or not!  No, really, I am determined!

Have a wonderful New Year's Day and be looking forward to the best New Year ever!!!  Kat

  1. LOL on #9 Kat! I think the interior of your house is a different color every time I'm over! Like I should talk! But I just need to FINISH what I've started in my kitchen. What color are you thinking this time? So, changing #9 a little to finish kitchen I think our goals are quite similar. Have a great day! Blogging the progress is a great idea.

  2. Wow Kathy! It sounds great. Love the blog. Hey and the Fly Lady yes great as well. I was on that plan and my life got a bit busy. I might check into it again. :)
    Keep us posted!
    And Happy New Year and good luck my friend.
