2013: 13 goals for myself

The Holidays are over, and we are back home and getting settled into our routines again.  (Of course I start typing this after Tanner has been sleeping for 2 hours, so he will be waking up any moment...)

I don't know if it is putting away the Christmas decorations, or the warm weather we were able to enjoy in Florida just a couple days ago, but I am on a roll with cleaning and organizing.  I've also had a bunch of goals for this year I want to strive to meet.  I'm not planning on calling them New Year's Resolutions, because I feel like its setting me up for failure, ha! Yeah, I'll stick with "goals".

 #1: Spend less time on my phone/Facebook/Pinterest while Tanner is awake.  He's growing SO fast and I don't want to miss any of it! 

#2: Get outside.  We have been doing this pretty often up until the middle of December.  Now that it's cold it's harder, but still doable.  

#3: Spend some time on myself.  Whether it's spending a little more time in the shower, painting my nails, or exercising (ha).  I'm not just a wife and a mother, but a person, too.  I'm don't want to lose myself.  

#4: BLOG MORE!  I'm so disappointed in myself for not blogging more the last several months.  I know life can get in the way, but these memories I am making with Tanner, with Nick, and with life in general, I want to remember them in the future.  I want Tanner to read these posts one day.

#5: Stay on top of cleaning.  I've gotten many ideas off of Pinterest that I think will help me.  And I'm pretty obsessive/compulsive, so having check lists and to-do lists will be the way to go.  

#6: Budget.  We're going to stop spending money on frivolous things.  Including fast food and eating out.

#7: Organize my house.  My spare bedroom shouldn't be a storage room. :)

#8: Start a Tot-School for Tanner. 

#9: Stick with said Tot-School.

#10: Learn all about my camera, and use it more. 

#11: Take care of myself. Exercise, eat healthy, blah blah blah...

#12: Breathe.  When I feel stressed out or anxious, I will just stop, breathe, gather my thoughts, and go on. 

#13: Live in the moment.  No more, "I can't wait until...", or "one day...". 

And Tanner is awake! So I'll end this post with some pictures of our trip. (I'll add more at another date).
