Confession:  I am not very good at documentation.  This blog is the closest thing I have to a journal, and it doesn't really have that much in it - just stuff I think might entertain some people.  So one of my New Year's Resolutions is to be better at keeping track of my memories.  I'm not exactly talking about blogging more, even though that is something that I would like to do.  I'm talking about something that I've never EVER been good at.  I want to scrapbook.  That's right.  I found the Project Life scrapbook kit and inspiration struck.  It looks like something for people like me... You know, people who got the short end of the crafty stick.  I'll have to take lots more pictures, but I don't really see how that could be a bad thing.  Hopefully the husband likes the idea as much as I do!

Other things I want to accomplish this year:

  • Make my house more homey.  Paint, art, nick-knacks, the works.
  • Run 6 days a week. I don't care for running much.  I'm slow and I feel really insecure when people see me work out in any way.  But our housing development has these awesome paths, and I guess I might as well put them to good use.  Also, I have some really awesome running shoes (that were 50% off, I might add) and they are so light and wonderful.  Seriously amazing.   
  • Landscape the back yard.  It's still just dirt. 
  • Learn more recipes.  Thank goodness for my Pinterest obsession.
  • Learn how to budget.
  • Go to the temple monthly.  We were so close last year!  We only missed two or three months, I think.
  • Be a better primary teacher.  Yes, I'm in primary again.  I was not too excited (Ok, I was pretty upset) but most of the kids in my class are pretty good and I've only wanted to strangle one or two on very few occasions.  This class is a lot different from my last primary class.  There are usually 6 to 10 kids there and they can be pretty rambunctious.  
So there it is.  Hopefully I'll be able to do these things.  And now that you've read this you are obligated to keep me in line.  Especially on the running one... Because I can see that one going down the drain fast, and it's one of the more important ones on there for me.  Oh also, Kourtney... Let me know if Stampin' Up has anything like the Project Life thing.  I wouldn't want to be disloyal or anything.
