Review of 2012 Goals

We've gotten about 6 weeks into the year already, so I thought it would be a good time to see how I am doing on my goals for the year.  Let's take a look.....

~~ Read my Bible every day.  I need to get into God's word more often.  I have come to realize that I need to carve out time out of my day (preferably in the morning when I am most alert) for Bible reading and prayer.  If I wait until my day ends, I am usually tired, and am not spending quality time with the Lord.  This is my most important Goal for this year!

~~ Send out birthday cards.  I have done well so far this year.  We've had 4 birthday's so far this year.  I did get my brother-in-law's card to him late, but I did get on Facebook and wish him a happy birthday on his birthday.  This is such a simple way to let other's know you care, and I want to continue it!

~~ Make our own bread.  I am trying different recipe's for this one.  I have no problem making our own bread, but the problem is that a lot of the recipe's make a crumbly loaf of bread.  Hubby doesn't like that and neither do the kids.  I'll keep trying!

~~ Play!  I am playing more games with the kiddo's, and trying to ignore the "things" that need to be done.  I must admit, though, it is easier said than done.  The laundry and dishes are yelling for attention!!!

~~ Eat healthier and live healthier.  This one is SO important to me, and I have been researching ways to improve upon our eating habits.  I have made a few small changes, and continue to look for ways to cook/bake and eat healthier.

~~ Loose 20 pounds.  Uhmm, well, lets just move onto the next one...

~~ Stick to our budgetWell....since our van died the end of December and we needed to get another one last month...this goal has not been a reality yet this year.  I am really working hard on this one for February (although Stinkerbelle told me yesterday about driver's ed class starting and needing to pay for that!  UGH!)

~~ Family worship time.  We are continuing with our book by the Mally's about Sibling relationships.

~~ Make as many Christmas presents as I can.  I have already started working on this and have a couple of things made already!  Yay!
~~ Organize my binder.  Yeah, well, I have looked at it a few times, and have the menu plans and grocery lists in it.  It still needs a lot of work!

~~ Pray for other's more.   There are so many people around us that need our prayers, so this is a good one to improve upon.  We have our prayer board in the kitchen,  and even our littlest kiddo's are praying for others (that is such a heartwarming thing to see!). It is so important to be lifting other's up in prayer.

I still have a long way to go, but this reminder will serve me well.  I'll continue to update in the coming months!

Have a great day!
