New Years New Goals . . . . And New Things To Spend Money On

Thursday, January 14, 2016

I have never really been one of those people who has a new years resolution this year. Maybe it's because I know myself pretty well, and well I'm not the greatest at keeping said resolutions. I have a tendency to over plan and set goals that are WAY too high and basically unachievable and then I get upset when I don't meet those goals. See . . . I'm great at resolutions.

And this year was going to be the same as in past years, I wasn't going to make any resolutions. But then one after the other, goals keep popping up in my head. . . .

I want to make more time for myself to be active
I want to focus more time on my blog and on my etsy shop
I want to cut back one day at work to be home more with Harper
I want to win the power ball

Okay, maybe that last one wasn't really a goal, but the rest of them are. Having a new baby in your life is a huge adjustment, and so is going back to work after having the baby. Throw in there lots of changes with my husband's job coming up in the near future and the crazy life of being married to a firefighter when things aren't changing and things can get a little hectic around our house.

But now that Harper is 5 months old (i promise i'll get her 5 month update posted sometime before she's 6, not 6 months, but 6) and I'm getting in to my new work schedule, it's time to work on some of those resolutions.

So while I'm over here planning out my days, trying to be more meaningful with my time, and figuring out how to fit in my goals, what are your resolutions or goals for the new year?

Maybe some money would help you achieve your goals. Maybe you want new workout gear, or healthy food, or what about throwing some dough into your blog - like a new design or sponsoring your favorite blogger.

    1. The chances to win any of the major present-day lotteries are close to nil. I would suggest to play Australian rather US PB, the chances are much better. Australian lotto results

  6. Our Tennessee Titan Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two plastic D-rings for attaching to our 6' aluminum flagpole or tailgate pole. The perimeter of our Tennessee Titan Flag is double stitched and the Tennessee Titan team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, these flags are also perfect to hang on any wall in your game room, sports room, or office.
