Happy New Year!! :D

So this Tuesday at TOPS we had our first meeting with our new executive. It was excellent to see some new and refreshed faces at the front! :)

The girls planned a 'New Year's" bash type of night for us. It's the start of a new TOPS year, so what better way to start? Koby spoke about resolutions. We talked about what they are, why we make them, why we succeed or fail, and how we can achieve success this year!! She challenged us to write down a few goals on a piece of paper, seal it into an envelope and hand it in. We'll get them back at the end of June, and see how we made out.

So, I'd like to share my goals with my readers. I'd love if you would comment on them, or just drop a line to reprimand me encourage me when I do or don't make the time to achieve them!! My success depends mostly on me, but also from the support of those around me.

Without further ado, here are my four goals for this quarter:
  1. eat more veggies
  2. get to Curves 3X a week
  3. walk 5000 steps in a day
  4. lost 10 lbs.
They don't seem unmanageable, and they even look achievable! I do want to increase my steps as the quarter goes on, but for now, I'm content with 5K.


My list for today

This is more for me than anyone else! LOL!

  • take a nap
  • load dishwasher
  • feed kids lunch
  • do Mom's taxes
  • do Dad's taxes
  • fold some laundry
  • put away some laundry
  • do some laundry
  • get ready to go out for dinner
  • make list for Michael for errands
  • go to Curves

Ten Years?!

WOW, where did the time go!! Today is our tenth wedding anniversary!! I can hardly believe that so much has passed, and yet there is SO much more to come!!

The photo to the right was taken just two weeks ago in Florida. It's shadowy, but it has all the things I love in it - my family and sunshine! LOL!

God really knew what he was doing when he brought Michael and I back together! I remember the day that he came back to Bethel and I got the biggest hug ever! I fondly recall our first date - even tho my food was less than tasty ;) LOL I remember his proposal after our first date... I remember our one year of engagement full of ups and downs. I so remember how I felt the moment that the doors of the church opened and my Dad escorted me down the aisle... I saw no one but Michael... even though the church was full! I still have eyes only for him!

Things I'm thankful for in the last 10 years: (in no specific order!)
  • having Michael as the love of my life
  • Michael's unending patience
  • Michael's goofy sense of humour
  • our three amazing children
  • a husband who loves God
  • a house we can call a home (even tho it still needs to be finished rennovating!)
  • the myriads of hugs I get every day from both Michael and the children
  • saying "I love you" at least once a day (usually more!)
  • hearing "I love you" at least once a day (usually more!)
  • a steady job for Michael that makes him be a great provider for our family
The list could go on, and I may add to it over the day! :D
