I hardly ever make resolutions. I can never stick with them. But this year I have more confidence, because I have the lifestyle change mentality.
1. I hope to exercise at least 5 days/week.
2. Reach my goal weight by May for my class reunion.
3. Organize/clean a spot, counter, or drawer every day.
4. Be productive almost everyday. Do a fix-it project, work on a craft or sew or quilt.
Best of luck to all of you with your goals. Happy New Year!

Oh no! I fell off the wagon, and on to the cookie tray! LOL I haven't done so well as far as watching my calories lately. I have three trays of cookies, still waiting to help our families celebrate. I know that my sneaking a few too many goodies is not a habit, so I'm okay with it. When my company is gone, things will settle down quickly. I hope you all are doing well, and enjoying the Christmas season with family and friends! Christmas blessings to you all!

I am amazed at myself how much I have gotten done in the last 2 weeks. I made my daughter a 2-pc. outfit, both my daughters a pair of pajamas, 11 pairs of actual boxers shorts for a couple of my sons(they like homemade) and--- 2-pc. pajamas for 6 of the little grankids. That's a total of 29 things!!! They were all easy patterns, and I sew very fast, and assembly line style, but that's still good! A few more projects and I'll be ready for the holidays. I should be thin from not having time to eat, but I've mastered chewing and sewing simultaneously.

I thought I was having a computer crisis last night, but I think we have it worked out. My screen just died, I didn't really lose everything . But I had to buy a $100 new monitor which lets us see the screen. The stuff is still there, but now I have a laptop connected to a (huge)monitor connected to a separate keyboard and it won't all fit in my computer desk. :( I hope Santa brings me a new laptop for Christmas! He knows I know he knows I need one!! I am just glad I didn't lose all my pictures of the grandbabies, etc. Thank you, Lord!!!!

Today was a great day for relaxing! After the snow yesterday, I felt like staying in and hunkering down. Yesterday was our town's Christmas Tour of Homes. Our home was featured. It was 2 weeks of a lot of work, but a great incentive to get several decorating projects and fix-it jobs taken care of that I've procrastinated about for 2 1/2 yrs--since we built our house. I usually keep busy, but certain projects just kept getting put off. Don't get me wrong, I didn't get my WHOLE list done, but I'm thankful for what I did do. Plus our home is now officially cleaned and decorated for the holidays! Yipee!!!! Anyway, tomorrow is back to the grindstone. I have a neglected list of Christmas sewing projects now. :( It will be a shame to not get them done, and have to go shopping , AGAIN!!!! Enjoy the holidays! Pam
