or perhaps just changes in lifestyle and the way things are within.

1.  To be a better listener. 
I know a lot of people think I am a great listener and for the most part I am but sometimes my thoughts wander and I lose tract of where I should be at the moment in time when I should be 100% focused.

2.  To be a better wife.  
Now my hubby would say I'm wonderful because he's just utterly sweet that way.  But I know better.  I can be a very self centered selfish brat at times.  I'm a woman.  Show me a woman who says different about how she can be at times and I will show you a liar.  : ) 

3.  To read to my children more often.  
Not just once in a while.  I'm talking much more often.  I want them to have a love of books just like Aaron and I do.

4.  Walk more.  
Not always with the dogs either.  Just get out there and take a walk at random, by myself, with the family, with the weens..  Just do it more.

5.  To write more on my blog. 
It's a document for myself, of my thoughts, feelings and other mindless jibberish.   Whether or not someone reads it isn't important but I do enjoy that others take a peek once in a while, truth be told.

6.  To smile more. 
The hell with growing old and getting wrinkles.. I want to laugh more, smile more and let the world see my joy when I'm 80 as it's etched into my face with laugh lines.  They can make me look perfect with feature builder when I'm dead!  ( yeah .. you learned something new about after death botox there eh? )

7.  Go over to my parents house and do yard work without being asked.
Not that they ever have.. but it's the little things that you don't have to do in life that are the most awesome.  Their yard is huge, I can mow it and they can drink lemonade while they watch it happening.

8.  Learn how to sew and sew good!
I am going to dust my sewing machine off and wear it out.  Or at least wear myself out with frustration. Either way it's happening this year!

9.  Buckle down and start cracking away at what little debt we have. 
It's time to quit procrastinating about it.  It's not going to go away until I make it go away!!

10.  I'm just going to be happier.  
Unsure of how I am going to go about this but I have my mind set to wake up each day, think of at least 3 positive things before even leaving the bed and then greeting my morning head on with a good attitude.  It's going to happen.  I am going to be so freaking happy sunshine is gonna shoot from my butt.
(you laughed.. admit it! )

So what are your goals?  I know what ever you set your mind to ... you can do.  XoXo
Happy 2011 all!
