Happy New Year - a few days late!

I know everyone else is putting their resolutions on their blog, so I am a big ole copycat and will do the same. My list of goals is quite long this year, but I need to get my rear in gear and get some things done! Here they are, in no particular order!
  • Get organized - my house is a mess and I have some great ideas that I just need to implement and follow through!
  • Keep better track of our money - now that I am working, we should be getting ahead of our bills and saving for a rainy day!
  • Budget my time better - I know this goes hand in hand with getting organized, but it is something I need to work on now that my work is about to get really crazy.
  • Go back to menu planning and better grocery shopping. Our budget per week is $75 for food. I can do it!!! and do it healthy.
  • Make more food from scratch and garden more - I am still feeling the need to stock up and be self-reliant.
  • Spend more time with my husband - I mean other than sleeping! We seem to pass each other all the time, but never get to connect.
  • Spend some individual time with each of my kids. they are all changing so fast.
  • Communicate with my extended family better
  • And last but not least - blog at least 4 times a week! I am on the computer enough!

So what are your goals for 2009?
