new goals for 2012

I am having an extremely hard time finding the time to come here and blog. I do miss it so, but my day to day life is so full of my job, my kids and everyday chores that I very rarely open my computer once I am home to type a word. I have recently purchased a used Ipad and hope I might use it to come here on a semi regular basis to document my life.

I have been doing a lot of thinking and rearranging in my mind of the things that are important to me in my life. I have started watching what I put in my mouth, filtering what comes out of it, pinching pennies, planning for fun and preparing for the zombie apocalypse. (I wish I was kidding! ha!!) Having a new, small, innocent person who can not protect himself has turned me into a paranoid, careful, prepared, crazy momma! I considered deleting this blog since I have put so much of myself and my family out there into the world with it. But, I  can’t bring myself to do it yet. I don’t make it here to write very often, but I am giving myself new reason to try.

For about a year and a half I have been working on my “101 in 1001″… I knew I would end up ditching it and creating something new. I should have never done something that lasted for sooooo long. I am about 5 months from my finish date and my goals in life changed drastically the moment I found out I was pregnant! I have revamped my list into something I can work on for the remaining months of 2012. From there I hope to create a new list each year and complete as many items as possible. With a growing baby boy, my hopes, dreams and ideas change almost as often as he does!

So, my new set of goals… includes about 20-25 from my original 101 that I had not completed yet. I trashed 10-20 goals that are just no longer ideal or obtainable at this time in my new life as Mommy. Please go check out my new list and check back, as I hope to blog my progress for the rest of the year.

This new life of mine has fulfilled my heart and soul in such a way that I can’t even describe. The days aren’t long enough  and my house is normally a complete disaster, but life is full of laughter, happiness and love. There is nothing else I need!
