    To not make any resolutions I can't keep - which means I don't need to be making any! LOL. Am definitely foregoing the standard "lose weight" since I have never kept it! But think I will resolve to work on renewing my relationship with God, love my husband and grandson with all I have, and try - I say try - to procrastinate less!

    My New Years resolution for 2011 is to not start any new projects until I have finished all of my unfinished ones. This is just for 2011 because I have so many I don't think I could even get them all done in one year. But that is the limit I am putting on starting something new. Unless of course there is an unexpected wedding or new baby that I need to make one for - those are the only exceptions.

    Thanks,

    PS - I am already thinking I need to start something new before 2010 is over so it will qualify - LOL

    Sadly I made SEVERAL for 2010 and only managed to keep a few ... SOOOOO this year I have TWO resolutions

    1) Keep in touch with family that I do not speak with often

    2) ENJOY LIFE (our first little one is scheduled to arrive in March which I am hoping will help me with my first resolution as I want her to know as much of my family as possible)

    This was not a good year for me. Some things that happened were out of my control but I could have handled them better so my resolutions are more yoga, meditation, and prayer. I can handle whatever comes my way when I'm more fit in these areas.
    Happy New Year to everyone! I value each and every one of you! :D
    Oh, and practicing FMQ!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi,
    Posted this elsewhere but I am going to make a gift a month and give it away right away instead of stockpiling them. Hopefully it'll help with stash busting too.

    Last year my resolution was to finish some of my UFO's and I did finish several. This year, my resolution is to use at least one piece of fabric from my stash for each new project I start.

    I finally put my foot down. 6 of our 7 kids are adults. It's about time they acted as such. But they do know Mom is there if and when they hit bottom. I will help pick them up, but I won't save their butts.......



    :shock:

    OMGosh....I have several! Last year I wanted to stop smoking (done in March) and cut out Diet Cokes (still working on that one), so...this year:

    1. Pray and meditate daily.
    2. Reduce Diet Cokes to 1 in the AM and then replace it with tea.
    3. Exercise at least 3 times per week.
    4. Eat much better to include 4 or 5 fruits/veggies per day.
    5. Take Vitamins Daily.
    6. Drink at least 6 bottles/glasses of water per day.
    7. Do something...any ONE thing...for my own enjoyment every day!
    8. GET TO BED EARLIER!!

    There may have been more but that's a start! LOL :D
