New Year Resolutions

2 Jan

Happy new year to everybody out there! Even if 2008 was great (as mine was), I hope your 2009 is even better. I have slightly more specific resolutions for this new year than I had for the last. I thought I’d share them with you. I have some small hope in the back of my mind that if I do share them in a public realm, the Internet will somehow better hold me to my goals than I would by myself. Silly, I know.

First, I am giving up soda. A small vice perhaps. But I do I love Coke. It’s such a wonderful, refreshing drink. It doesn’t make me sick and it doesn’t really bother me that it can eat through rust or any other thing about it. I also love Diet Dr. Pepper. But if I drink some of that then I just want Coke. I can drink a lot of soda. Not only does it does it suck up funds that could otherwise be useful, it’s just plain old not good for you. Well, for me. I gave it up for a month and a half about six months ago. Once the horrible headaches subsided, I felt great! But then I got engaged and the stress began. So starting tomorrow, it’s lemonade and water for me!

Secondly, I want to finish/begin my scrapbooking. Not scrapbooking in the cutesy sort of way, but the kind of way that organizes and displays my memories. I have a great scrapbook from high school, with nothing in it. I will finish my wedding book first, and work backwards.

Thirdly, I want to improve my sewing skills. I’m not going to overeach myself too much. This year I want to learn to knit or crochet and make at least one quilt. I don’t know what kind of quilt yet, so I’m open to suggestions. I’ve made a few other quilts in the past. My Grandma took the time to teach me, but I’ve never tried to sew anything before without her there. As soon as I get my sewing machine fixed I will begin.

And that is it. The dreaded, unreachable resolutions for 2009. There are plenty more goals I want to reach this year, but these are the top three for the year! What are your resolutions? Do you usually keep them?
