New Years Goals

It is New Year's Eve and here I am. Somehow there are some days when my weaknesses seem to slap me in the face with the realization that I am not nearly what I want to be. But it is okay. I know there is a little time for me to be better and I WILL be better.

I want to be a better, more loving mother and wife.
I want a cleaner home.
I want to be more in shape--run a half marathon (Chelise and Tiff, you are an inspiration).
I want to finish my book--new goal the end of January.
I want to sing better/play piano better.

My kids made a list of their goals here it is:
1. Learn to read by the end of April
2. Sarah start ballet
3. Both learn addition
4. Clean up by by bed time.
5. Start piano lessons.

Additionally I would like the kids to start reading the scriptures (we do the pictures from the Gospel Art Kit--pictures from the scriptures) at night. We can do the picture too if there is time and they can start reading the back.

I can do this. I can do this.
