New Year Resolutions

Yes I made a few, and some I am actually going to keep.

1-Seriously go through the kids bedroom, toyroom and computer room closet and clear out all broken/not played with toys and get rid of them! This WILL be done by the end of May (before kids get out of school, and said above toys become a prized possession once they realize where the toys are going).

2-Find a GREAT computer program that makes DVD movies. Every year I keep telling DH I want to make a DVD movie of the kids for the grandparents for Christmas. This year I AM going to do it!! If you know of any such programs, PLEASE let me know! I did do some looking at Office Max last week and was not impressed with what they had there. I am not looking to get director of the year award, I just want a program I can use still pictures and little pieces of video with backgroud music and/or video audio.

3-Keep better in touch with my MN friends. I miss them all terribly and it's a shame that I don't do better in keeping in touch.

4-And of course the ol' standby for women. Exercise and healthy eating (aka..loose weight or die trying). I was doing so well last year at this time with this, and I completely fell off the wagon this past fall with me working. I guess another resolution for me should be time management!!

Happy New Year!!

A few days late, but what the heck. Since I didn't do it last year, I'd better do it now while I think about it...

2007 year in review

Of course the biggest news of last year was the kids starting kindergarten. They love it and I was glad to see them go. It honestly wasn't a hard transition at all for me. I was ready for them to go, because they were ready to go. We had some trials at the beginning with W, but now things are going great and with only 2 days left of Christmas vacation I am REALLY ready for them to go back.

Another big news is that I found 2 part-time jobs that I do enjoy. It's great finding not one job, TWO that will work around my kids schedule!! Working for the school is great, the flexibility and change in enviorment is exactly what I was hoping to have, and I have it. And my 2nd job working for my old boss (B4 kids) is going great too. The best part of me working these 2 jobs is now dh isn't working at the farm NEARLY as often as he was. It feels more of a family atsmosphere around here with him more around. I am glad that I am finally able to contribute more our family financially.

It was a good 2007.
