It's 2011...time for some resolutions!

So one of my goals for 2011 is to switch journals. I have been keeping a journal that I write in, and I usually write in it when there is down time at work. I think I will still keep that journal for more personal things, but I have also been jotting things down about my family. SO I wanted to start posting my thoughts on my blog so my family can catch a glimpse of what we're up to.

Whoever is reading this, I must warn you that I am not going to post pictures every time. It takes too much time. In fact, I've agreed with myself that it's a-ok to just type some thoughts most of the time.

Today my thoughts are focused on RE-FOCUSING. I really like New Years because it gives me a chance to reflect and gain some perspective. There's a lot I need to work on, but I think it's healthier to focus on just a few things at a time. That way I won't start punishing myself for failure.

Here are my goals for 2011:

1) Spend time with my kids
2) Keep a journal (blog)
3) Run 4 times a week; 1 long run
4) Run a marathon
5) Balance my diet
6) Buy a house

Ok that last one may be a bit steep, but I'm shooting for the stars here! Actually, purchasing a house is a little out of my hands since I am depending on Nate to get done with school and get a really awesome job.

That's all for today. I have high hopes for this year!
