1) Lose this dam 10 pounds that just wont go away no matter how much I diet and exercise.
2) I hope to move closer to being a secure trusting wife who doesnt always second guess a great man who deep down I know loves me and I can trust... I need to work on me and I know it ...
3) Stop nibbling my nails and let them grow for once..
4) Get through pre menopause!!!!
5) Keep working out regularly and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

I love all the travel and education plans. You guys are awesome.
I am doing a short 3 days course to give me a minor speciality in my field...cross connection control for plumbing.
SO and I are building a house in the country that will include a large shop for him which we are both looking forward to.
My brother is coming out to visit me....yippee!!
We started working out about 3 weeks ago and would like to continue that.

1. Be healthy! 2013 sent me to the hospital for more surguries than I care to ever experience again. I'm healthy now and plan on staying that way.
2. Make something new once a week. I own a craft shop but since this year was full of ups and downs I didn't have a whole lot of time to make new stuff. This year, that's changing.
3. Start dating God. I haven't been to church in a while nor have I picked up my Bible since Spring. I've spent some time dating, and it's been fun, but I think spending more time in my faith will serve me better.
Happy days are here again:)

Actually developing some real goals would be a good start...lol. I feel like I'm just on auto-pilot all of the time, just doing what I have to do to get through life. I'm not unhappy - three years out from Dday, I'm feeling pretty good overall - but still have some work to do.
This is an inspiring post.

I'd like to launch my esty artisan soap shop
I'd REALLY like to move south instead of just talking about it every winter...
To that end, my goal is to take more vacation time and actually travel to a few places I might ultimately like to move to, check them out.
Continue a new "same time next year" get-together tradition with my best high school buds. We started in late April of this year, and I'm hoping the tradition goes on for a long, long time

1) to be happy (my forever goal - seems I cannot seem to capture it long term.)
2) to be healthy (exercise, lower my bp)
3) and to try to find some financial stability since the last two years I have been laid off 3 months a piece...

Probably going to move back into the house I own back in the country with SO. It will make it MUCH more affordable for us to follow our dreams, including our decision to rent a place in CO for most of the summer!
Keep losing weight and going to the gym together. If I can lose enough, I can get these darn knees replaced and eventually get rid of the near excruciating pain that I try to grin and bear currently.

Good post....and I've been thinking about what the new year may (or may not) hold for me.
I just want a chance to regroup and replenish my soul. This year was the year from hell in my life. I really need a chance to get myself centered again.
1) I need a few chances to get away with my Bear and actually have some fun.
2) I want to have at least a few months with no health crises with my mom. My dad died in July after a hard battle with cancer and I'm still reeling from that. Mom moved in with me in August. She has multiple health issues, and dementia to boot.
3) I want to just *breathe* without the weight of the world on my shoulders for a little while.
4) I want to check off at least one of the things on my bucket list. New Orleans? Havasupi Canyon? Rocky Mountain National Park (with the Stanley Hotel)? A week long motorcycle trip? ANYTHING!
Sometimes the hardest part of finally seeing through someone is accepting what you see...
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to
change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

That is a good one exhausted lady.
