Sunday, February 7, 2010


We went on a road-trip with some friends last weekend. (Who knew going to respect calls could be so much fun?!) We started talking about New Year's Resolutions. One friend suggested we call them "tweaks." Not big things to completely change about yourself... that's too hard. Just things that need "tweaking." Little changes. Improvements.

So... even though it's February... here are my "tweaks" for 2010:

1. Exercise... not because I want to, but because I really need to.

2. Plan meals and shop smart. (This is actually going really well!)

3. Say "yes" more often. But only to the important people... my kids and Corey.

4. Follow my own rule about being "a polite listener" and look at my kids when they are talking to me.

5. Create a budget and work on following it. (Found a program that I think I'm going to LOVE!)

6. Pray more. And more intentionally.

7. Get acquainted with Him again... because I've drifted and He misses me.

8. Scrapbook... because I love to do it and it makes me happy... and I haven't done it in over a year.

Those look really really good. I hope you can follow thru with them.
Tweaks are a good idea.

awesome tweaks! Tell me about your program for your budget - I won't change anytime soon, but I would like to see a few other options.

Your tweaks sound exactly like mine would sound if I were to think of some on my own.
I also have been thinking so much about all the things you have shared, all the hurting people that you are coming in contact with, and the situations that you are hearing about through your school. There are so many heart-breaking things! I am so sorry. I have's hard to do sometimes. Mainly when you want to holler out,"Why?!" But what right do we have to question Him. But maybe it's okay to. I don't know. Anyway, I am thinking and praying about all of those things. Just so sad.
I hope that your baby girl is doing better all the time, that you are all fine. Have a good week.

I think Corey was asking for something on "four wheels". I'd say yes to that.
