Happy New Year['s Resolutions!]

Happy New Year!

I hope all of you are off to a wonderful start for the New Year! :D

In the past I had never been one for resolutions, mostly because I lacked the intestinal fortitude to keep the pessimism at bay AND because I procrastinate too much. As part of my Positivity Regimen for the last year I vowed to overcome my fear of failure. So far so good. ;)

I also made a promise to myself that I would start a new sewing business online (more about that later). I also managed to finish Nanowrimo and I plan to continue writing my novel. Also, I need to set up a new blog on Wordpress because Blogger has pretty much outlived it's usefulness for me, I need a separate blog page for reviews since I have been accepted into the Parent Bloggers Network, and I need to put up a sewing section on the new blog.

Also, since we have financially challenged recently and we have stopped eating out John and I have managed to lose about 7 pounds (Anna has lost a few herself). I want to establish a workout schedule with the MISU and stick to it because our 20th (gasp) anniversary is in a year and a half. I wanna look GOOD!

So, there you have it.

1. Online sewing business
2. Continue writing/editing novel
3. Set up new blog with main blog, review and sewing sections
4. Work out a workout schedule with the hubby and stick to it

Elizabeth at Table for Five has a new blogroll for those of us who want to keep ourselves accountable, and so that we can cheer each other on during our progress reports! So if you would like to join, head over and leave a comment and a link to your New Year's Resolutions. Care to join me? Come on, lets make this New Year a fulfilling one. :D

Good luck with the resolutions! I know you can do it all, you're amazing! I am not one for resolutions, they only last a few weeks and fizzle out after that.
