Happy New Year

(Picture from New Years Eve 2006)

My Friend Delena tagged me to post my New Years Resolutions. I am not allowed to list Losing Weight (which I already started on Dec 1st when I joined Weight Watchers) She also said something about not listing anything about being a better person as well. Seeing how those were 2 big ticket items for me...this took me a little longer to come up with it. But here goes:
1.) Buy myself a Lap top and begin to write my Book. The Book about Me, and My Story. It's for my girls. I've had tugs on my heart to do this for some time, and I just need to do it.
2.) Ride my bike in the Dam to Dam this year. (I will plan on doing the 25 mile race this year)
3.) Write a letter of forgiveness to My Mom. I'm going to send it the old fashioned way too.
4.) Take an Active Role in decreasing our household debt. This is tough, means less shopping at Macy's and less indulgences on my Daughters and Grand kids. But they have so much already.
5.) Try very hard to "Think Before I Speak" If I do say something thoughtless, I will acknowledge it and apologize right away. (This one may be harder than the Macy's)
6.) Clean out my Garage so that a car could fit in there if we wanted it to.
7.) Lose 50 pounds by the end of this Year. (Neener Neener...I put it in here anyhow)
P.S. Only 40 more to go.
Happy New Year guys. I'm glad to call you friends.
