I don’t personally think of New Year’s as a holiday. Don’t know why, maybe after all the Thanksgiving/Christmas hoopla I am just partied out. Never been a big fan of losing sleep or drinking, so what’s the point? That being said, we will be hosting a gathering (completely against my will) today. Just my brother and his wife. We hardly get to see them so it’s a welcome event, but I fear there are ulterior motives for the visit. Ah, gotta love family.
I am glad it’s an “ends in 0” year. I like years that end in 5 and 0. Lots of good things have happened for me in 5 and 0 years. My dh and three of my children were born in 0 and 5 years (as was my granddaddy…in 1900. Wow, he would have been 110. Weird.) I graduated high school in a 5 year. And when you stink at math like I do, 0 and 5 years are easy on the brain. :)
Yes, I “do” resolutions. I like to think of them more as year long goals. Last year I resolved to keep up with my photo albums. I did it, too. Check it out.
This is a little cabinet in my entryway. It currently houses albums from 2002 to an (almost) finished 2009 (just waiting on the Christmas pics to come in the mail.) I tell ‘ya that feels GOOD! I am all caught up and ready for next year. I did it pretty frugally, too, as I waited for specials and freebies to order prints.
So what are my resolutions this year?
- Continue with keeping up with photos
- Use more reusable bags for groceries
- Limit buying by using library more and making more things from scratch
- Read the Bible in a year
I think they are pretty attainable goals, and I will be sure and blog my progress. Oooh, I see a once-a-month post in my future! Happy New Year’s to you all. :)
