New Year Goal's

Well, I did it. I wrote a blog post for every day of the year in 2014. Wow. And the craziest part is I'm not even burnt out of blogger. I've actually really enjoyed capturing this year day by day. I notice I've taken a lot more pictures than any other year in my life. Which is both nice and a pain. It's nice that I have so many memories of my kids to look back on, but sorting and organizing them is going to be a pain. I don't plan on continuing the daily blog posts, but I do hope to write three or four each week. I don't think I'll ever miss entire months again. My blog has really transformed and I'm finally comfortable with the total randomness of each post. It's just my life.

Ben and I have been talking a bit about our resolutions for 2015. He's set some good ones, so I figure I should too.
  • I'm going to copy one of his and say I'll read one book, from our own collection, each month. 
  • I'd like to eat healthier, so my goal is to only eat treats I make from scratch (no more processed junk) and to only make (and eat) them once a week. I'm thinking Sundays.
  • I need to speak nicer to my children. Not that I'm overly mean, but my tone (particularly when they are whiny) could use some work. 
  • I need to study my primary lessons all week long, and not just Saturday night (I'm not the only one, right?).
  • Follow our budget! I have a great budget set, that isn't the problem. The problem is sticking to it! The other day I read something about the importance of marriage and how a wife shows respect and love for her husband by not over spending his earnings. That just really struck me, and though we don't go over his earnings, we could be a lot better about savings -- so out of love for him ... I'm going to do better this year!
