New Years Goals...A little late.

I am so thankful that I have a husband who is goal oriented. Even if he doesn't bring up our goal making at the most inopportune times;-) aka...2 seconds after loading up for an 8 hour trip with two fussy kids. Still for the most part, we go over our life, year, week goals nearly every Sunday. It's fun to check things off and to keep goals at the front of our minds.

So I'm not one much for New Years Resolutions but I thought I'd do it anyways...since it's, you know, almost the 8th!;-)

1.Keep my boys alive and healthy.
aka don't leave Barclay alone in the room with Sullivan in case rage over takes him and he either
a. chokes
e.a lot of other mean things that make me sad:-(

2.Become hot
-either get pregnant so that this belly of mine is actually sexy;-)
-or get to the point that clothes look decent on me...and I'd like to wear boots next fall

3.Cook more so we don't eat out (for financial reasons and for MENTAL reasons. Because eating out with Barclay George is never really the setting for enjoying food or friends)
-meal plan
-meal plan yummy food (post coming soon about this!)

4.Be patient
-I am starting to get to the point after hard days where I literally scare myself with how impatient and frustrated I get. I do NOT want my boys to be scared of me.

5.Make exercising a priority.
-basically it is my last priority after:
a.feeding my family
b.keeping them alive
d.doing facebook
e.doing pinterest shopping
h.hanging out with friends
i.watching TV
j.editing photos
l.getting dressed
m.washing clothes
n.drinking coffee
p.having random dance parties with my boys
q.finding good deals on craigslist
r.painting or creating art
u.bathing for fun
v.changing diapers
w.going to church
x.taking care of my dad
and I'm out of letters...

The only things that come UNDER exercising is
-brushing my hair

So basically I can always find an excuse not to! I am good at exercising. I'm decently in shape. But I'm just not used to making it something important in my life and I want that to change. I want to have the guts to tell someone, "Actually, as much as I'd love to meet you for impromptu coffee, I need to get some exercise. Want to walk with me?"

So those are just a few of my new years goals. What are yours?
