This year I resolve to...

     I don't believe in New Year's resolutions, and have never made them.  However, I am at a point where I feel like I need to make some changes in my life in order to be a happier person.  I am not happy with my weight, don't exercise, and don't always eat the greatest.  By the time I get home from work, the last thing I want to do most nights is cook dinner for the family.  So, we end up eating a lot of prepackaged, convenience food.  This year, I'd like to improve the quality of what I feed my family, drink more water, and start exercising, at least occasionally.  I'd love to say that I would take up running, and I've always wanted to be a runner, but the reality is that I am just not that motivated, and can't run more than 100 feet at a time.  So, a more realistic goal would be that I will start walking, riding my bike, or maybe going to the gym (that I don't currently belong to).

     I also would like to start doing more with friends.  We used to have a large group of friends that we hung out with fairly regularly, and for whatever reason, we don't really have anyone who we hang out with anymore.  Our neighbors don't get together, I don't have a whole lot in common with most of the women in the community where we live, we don't go to church, and don't do playdates, so there is limited opportunity to make friends.  I'd like to change that, have a group of friends to socialize with, and I sure would love to have a BFF.  I haven't had one of those in a very long time.  

     One last thing that I have been wanting to do for a long time is to get back to having a creative outlet.  I need creativity in my life, and used to scrapbook or craft on a regular basis.  Since I went back to school, I haven't been able to make the time to do fun, crafty things, and I'd like to change that.  I have tons of craft/scrapbooking supplies, and I need to get them out and do something with them.  Pinning crafty things on Pinterest isn't enough for me anymore...
