Well, like a lot of the country, it's flipping cold outside.  Today was to be our first day back to school after Christmas break, but we got to add on another day to relax.  My car wasn't too excited to start this morning, but thankfully it did.

I'm thinking it's a good day to bake something and watch movies. :o)

a new year

and some new goals and things to go with it.

My word for this year is relax.  I thought about going with calm the f*ck down but decided one word would be better than a phrase. It’ll also look better on our wall since I plan to hang it up as a reminder.

I worry about everything.  There are nights when I can’t fall asleep or stay asleep because I’m worrying about stupid things.  There are times when I’ll be sitting around thinking and realize that I've given myself a stomach ache because I’m worrying about the what-ifs.  So yeah, relax is a good word for this year.

I’d like to learn how to sew this year.  I don’t really have the patience for all the measuring and pinning but I’m going to try.

I’d also like to learn how to coupon effectively.  I've tried this before but have never followed through with it.  I actually gave it a try this summer and it was a pretty awesome feeling the few times I saved big chunks of money.  I just need to put some effort into it.

I’m planning to read The Story.  It is the Bible written as a story.  My mom gave it to me a few months ago but I have yet to start it. I will have it read by the end of this year.

  • take more pictures
  • read more books
  • get (and keep) closets organized
  • climb the Campanile at SDSU

To get started on the taking more pictures goal, Dave and I went out to McCrory to take a few pictures this morning. We didn't stay out long though since the windchill was -20.
