Thirteen Things I'd like to do in 2007!
Thanks to GoofyGirl for this cute TT Header!
  1. I'd like to take the kids on more outings. More trips to the library, fun museums, join a Mom's club.

  2. To read more. I'd like to try and read a book a month!

  3. I love to cook. I'd like to get the family involved more with cooking dinner. Right now I cook 2 large meals for leftovers the next day, and then 2 regular meals, and leave one night to eat out, but.....

  4. Lunch time is when I eat too much fast food, because I'm on the go from about 10:30-5:30, and have very little time for me to have a healthy lunch. So, I'd like to try and eat less fast food.

  5. Start making scrapbooks for each of the kids.

  6. I'm going to be looking in to Homeschooling Katelyn, possibly Josh too next year! For Katelyn because she would be a late starter in K, because of her late birthday, and I don't want her to miss out. Josh because of his health, I'd like to find a Mom's group of Juvenille Diabetics, so he could have some friends who also are learning to deal with the same thing.

  7. I'd like to start drinking less Diet Pepsi, and more water. I'm not giving up my Coffee.

  8. I'd like to try and be more patient with the kids and my husband. Have more laughs and fun!

  9. Be more organized!

  10. Take a room in the house a month and do something different with it! I'd like to paint our bedroom, fix up the bathrooms, put wood flooring in my daughter's room, just some examples.

  11. This should have been #1, before the kids go back to school, I'd like to take them up to where the snow is. Katelyn's never seen snow, and Josh was 6mos old the last time he saw it. Maybe make a snowman, just depends on how much snow we see!

  12. I'd like to take the whole family camping this coming fall, up North to Pinetop,AZ!

  13. To have a more Peaceful Year, my whole family. We've had some situations, where we all could have had a little more patience and understanding, maybe even compromise more, or just to let it be!

p.s. i love the new look!

Christine said...

This is a great list. I wish I was more patient with my kids too. I too wish we had snow. Mind you, I live in Canada, so there should be some here now!

Thanks for stopping by my site!

Oooohhh, your web page is so pretty! I love blue! I have alot of the same goals too this year~I hope we can keep many of them! Happy New Year!

Uisce said...

something tells me the soda companies are gonna be on some pretty hard times in 2007... I'll drink to that! :)

Starrlight said...

I hear you on the coffee. Drink less is on my list. But never give it up entirely. That is just wrong!

Rashenbo said...

Good list for sure! I want to do more with my kids like camping and outdoorsy stuff :) I also would like to learn a little bit about scrapbooking. :) There is so much I want to do... I just need more time and more organization! :D

MissWrite said...

Great list! I hear you on the water, but I couldn't give up my coffee either. I keep trying to convince myself that coffee is just colored water, but not even I believe that.

JO said...

great list! hope you get to do everything in your list.

Christine, I just stumbled across your blog and see you're from Arizona. And you're interested in homeschooling. I lived in Phoenix and moved to Portland, OR this summer. Phoenix has a whole bunch of great homeschooling groups. All the homeschoolers are more than happy to share their information with you. Where do you live?

I'm homeschooling my daughter... and loving it.

I love Pinetop. We went skiing up there last year, and it was a blast.

Candy Minx said...

Wow, that's a pretty intense list of "to do's" but also, they seem realistic and they do sound like they would make your life feel even better.

About your own lunch...what if you took about ten minutes to write a list of things you could make as a lunch for yourself. Don't eat any starch for that meal...make something liek celelry sticks and a delicious dip...with some meat and a vegie that you could eat cold or quickly warm up...stuff you could take in the car with you to nibble on. I like the "baby bell" cheeses...and a chicken drum stick or something. That wy you wouldn't be eating fattening foods like bread, potatoes or any starches...that would give you a good lift for the rest of the day?

Did you know one or two cups of coffee help ward off depression in women? Plus, there are 30 points of calcium in coffee!!!

so one cup of coffee is actually GOOD FOR YOU!!!

I need may morning fix of caffeine.

All the best to you in the new years and I hope all your dreams and wishes come true for 2007. I also hope you are able to help other peoples dreams and wishes come true too. Great to meet you online in blogland!

Cheers Candy here is my TT list:

I'd like to read more too; seems hard to do by the time nighttime gets around.

Happy New Year to all of you

Jennifer said...

really good TT idea, maybe I will steal/ahem...borrow this for next week!

I am with you about eating better, and I like your idea of doing something in each room each month. We never seem to quite finish decorating our house...that is one thing I want to do this year.
I homeschool my kids and love it. This year I have a 6th grader, 4th grader, and 1st grader, and a preschool age sitting in.
I hope you find a group!
