also i was thinking about my annual new years resolutions. i'm still working on next years, but i went back and checked out out last years. i did alright as far as completing them, i guess:
*start a blog-DONE
*call my sister corinne every week-i got so much better about this.
*send a birthday card to every family member- almost, except i'm still behind on jasmine's december birthday and the 3 thanksgiving brithdays didn't exactly get cards.
*play risk more-didn't even play. not even once. :(
*go through grandparents photos, and then put some up around the house-work in progress
*rebuild back deck before it falls off house-this deck has now gone through another 2 serious snow falls and is currently sitting under about 3 1/2 feet of heavy snow but its still standing.
*finish basement family room- plans changed and we remodeled the upstairs instead.
*have baby brother/sister for cody- almost finished with this one. yay!
*learn to play more on guitar. at least 2 songs -oops....
*paint inside of house- DONE
*continue exercise routine and incorporate more pilates/yoga- i stuck with this really well until about 3 months into my pregnancy.
*more scrapbooking- negative.
*get cody a dog- maybe next sumer.
*take cody camping A LOT! - we did take him camping, just not a lot.
*take cody to the imax- arah took him instead.
*get cody a really tall bunk bed (all kids should have the experience at least once)- still in the works.
*run bloomsday again and beat past times- yay! i did by a lot!
*do a triathalon or a mini marathon - i got pregnant and changed my mind. but next summer...
*ride hiawatha bike trail in montana (or is it in idaho?) - i did the cour d'alene trail instead.
*cook dinner at least 4x's a week - definitely did this one.
*cut out caffeine- got much better.
*forgive others and get past guilt -a lot of progress here.
*be a good, kind & understanding mama to cody- i made a conciencious effort.
*be sweet to merv -most of the time.
*set up some kind of schedule for life; work play. (& stick to it). -umm ya right. for some reason this is just impossible for me.
*put cody in swimming & soccer- did both and even coached his team.
*take cody rock climbing more. - learned how to belay and took him and brinley several times at the y.
*more snowboarding - none.
*get bigger fire safe!! (after watching neighbors house burn down, i realize i am not prepared)-check this one off, but the safe is still sitting in its box in the office with all of the important documents stacked on top. next year i'll organize it.
