I didn't know three could mean so much!

Boy, I have been out of the blog loop for awhile and now I am ready to get back in. I can't believe Christmas has come and gone this year. I feel like my brain has been in a constant state of fuzziness for the last few months. This year has proven itself as a difficult year for me. Not one particular event has been the down fall but more like a mound of events that seem to have suffocated me! I could go into what those events were but I seem to think that for the most part they are pretty irrelevant. So right now, this is where I will start!

Today I was in the car with Jay and I said to him "2009 will be the year of organization, for me". I am a person that needs structure and this past year it has been lacking. So are you bloggers thinking, "is she going to give me her New Year Resolution List already". Heck ya, I am!

This first one is probably my most challenging one and one that is the hardest to tell you all because if I don't follow through with it I will feel pretty silly! Which makes me also want to really tell you all so that I will follow through with it. Alright here goes, I am going to run a marathon around my 30th b-day! That means I need to start training NOW.

Number two; was mentioned earlier in a pretty broad fashion, "organization" and I will break it down just a little more. I want to start making meal plains, start having house cleaning schedules, have weekend idea lists, a better budget, more family fun times, read more to my children! I need to say "NO" more to outside events. Have more date nights with my hubby and more one on one time with my children.

Last and definitely not least, I want to discover more who God is. I think I have been holding on to "Religion" and not working on my relationship with God. He is why we are here, not religion. We are to worship Him, not religion and it is about time I do some major sitting down with Him and learning more about Him. I really believe God has been asking me to do this for a while and fuzzy headed me hasn't been listening. I am ready to Listen Lord!

So those are my three. I see a lot of work ahead but oh just look what I have to gain from them all!

This year my resolutions were no resolutions! Phew! Out the window goes that! I think your three are good enough for me!
