Day 2/365 & The New Year

I really haven’t set many goals for the year of 2013. Mainly, because come February, I’m like, huh, what resolutions. Ha!

I did set a couple though.

Day 2/365

To complete the read your bible in a year plan. Emily and Audrey put me to shame! They both read through the entire bible last year and have set a goal to do it again this year.

Read more non-fiction. I have no troubl
e what-so-ever picking up a book and getting lost in a good story. I have spent many a night saying, one more chapter, until …… there are no more chapters. But give me a non-fiction book, and well, I just get lost or fall asleep.

A side note: If you have teenagers you NEED to read The Five Love Languages of Teens. It has really opened my eyes to a lot of things.

Take pictures!And print pictures! Even if it is just a Willow Tree or a stack of books. I’m starting, for like the 5th time, the 365 challenge. I am determined to do it this year. The past couple of years I have become really lazy when it comes to capturing our day to day lives.  I pulled out my Project Life kit last week and basically I completed January.

Spend more time with these crazy kids! I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by. Audrey turned 12 in August and Emily will be 14 in a couple weeks. We basically have 5 years left preparing these girls for the “real world” and I’ll be honest, it scares me to death.And Sarah, no matter how much I beg her to stay little, wants to grown up.

To make time for David and me. To have more date nights. And just talk. I look so forward to our anniversary trips, that time alone, being us, not mommy and daddy, is just so nice. And relaxing.
And finally, have fun. Be silly. Relax. Stop fretting over the stuff that doesn’t matter and enjoy life.
