Happy New Year 2012!

Well this Christmas has been fast and furious! We had a death in the family (expected, but too sudden for anyone to prepare), family from overseas staying with us for Christmas (hubs had to work Christmas day), we closed on our first home (wow!!!), and now we are ready for some R&R! The new year will be here soon and then hubs and I will begin winding down our time in Florida and preparing to go back home to Texas!

Speaking of the new year… It’s that time again for resolutions! Every year I make resolutions (or goals) and I typically  choose realistic ones that I can achieve or ambiguous ones that are harder to measure so I don’t feel like a failure.

Can you tell I have a competitive spirit?

But you know, making year-long goals in January is too complicated. Either I achieve them fast and then have no more goals or else the year goes on and I forget about them or I don’t achieve any at all! So I will try something new this year: I’m making bi-annual goals that I have until June to complete. Then, in June I will make a list of goals for the next 6 months!

Here are my top 3 goals:

1. Build our emergency fund up to where it should be.

2. Learn basic French.

3. Stretch daily for 10 minutes.

What about you? Do you make resolutions? Do you make goals?

What are your resolutions???
