New Years Resolution Review from 2010

At the end of 2009 I set "goals" for myself because I am not really a resolution kind of person, goals seem much more achievable then a defined commitment which I may or may not accomplish and end up feeling like a failure for not doing.  I love making list of projects I want to accomplish and this was my "list to accomplish" at the beginning of 2010 and how much of it I actually got done ;-)

1.  Continue with my 2009 weight loss efforts and loose 40-60 pounds in 2010. I know this one is so typical but I have really made strides in making time for me this past year and lost 21 pounds and would like to continue making time to be a healthier me for my boys and my MoG.
2.  Drink 8 glasses of water each day.
3.  Become consistent with a daily devotional that feeds me as a mother and provides me with spiritual tools to lead my 2 little Boys.
4.  Work on getting rid of MORE of our debt and managing our finances TOGETHER.
5.  Make time once a month to go out on a date night with my husband so we can truly spend time talking and focusing on us.  This past year with Jon becoming more active, it seems we are constantly in "Correction" mode and we collapse after the boys are asleep, we never seem to get quality time for us to just be the couple we were before the boys and I hope to fix some of that in 2010.
6.  Finish our Master Bedroom closet renovations and bookshelf in our bedroom so that we can convert the office into a bedroom.
7.  Clean out office and prepare it for Baby #3 (prayerfully) or a guest room.
8.  Redecorate the boys room when we get bunk beds later this spring.
9.  Build coffee table design that I like from Ballard Designs only with David's airplane window set into top.
10.  Finish the bathroom.
11.  Work harder on building my business and being consistent with calling clients.
12.  Develop and stick to a household budget.

I find it sad how much I didn't get done and happy with what I did get done.  Probably the biggest fly in the ointment of my plan was getting pregnant and having a difficult pregnancy.  So, tomorrow I will have to sit down and review the goals I didn't accomplish and reset my goals for 2011 with a clean slate ahead of us.
