A Year of Blogging

I have enjoyed the opportunity to blog my experiences and thoughts over the past year, and it is encouraging that others are enjoying reading it as well. Many of you are coming back again and again. Thank you for sharing my journey.

Over the next year I am going to work on simplifying my life and keeping focused. Every year it seems I am a bit more organized than the year before. But I still seem to have so many things going on, so I want to prioritize and then get rid of things that I truly do not, and will not, have time to do. Then I will streamline my time so that I can actually focus on the things that I do think are important. Scheduling time to do what is important for me and my family is my goal. Not just to say it, but to actually carve out a time and do it.

Things that are new I am trying this year;
*Twitter-lots of fun connecting with family and FLYFriends
*Facebook-connecting with cousins mostly at this time
*Focus on one plan-my plan

The things I want to do more regularly this year;
*Spend time with family- immediate and extended
*Family play day at least twice a month
*Game night at least once a month-we have times where game nights are frequent and then a pause
*Get fit- I have really let this one go over the past year

Things I want to keep doing this year;
*Take trips-short and long, with family
*Get rid of clutter as it comes in, or as I re-prioritize-at home and work
*Routines-at home and work
*Budget resources
*Save for rainy days, fun days(birthdays, trips and Christmas) and retirement days
