Week of May 2, 2010

Well I was not as successful as I would have liked to be this week. I did get in some training for that half marathon in two weeks. I just didn't get as much done around the house that I would have liked but I did also not feel well for a few days. So this weeks goals are to:
1. Get everything done that I did not get done last week
2. Exercise at least 4 times this week
3. Get the oil changed in my car
4. Re-new my expired drivers license :)
5. Post some new pictures to this blog of mine....I took some great ones of the kids this past week

Goals of the Week: April 25th

Well it is already 3:30 pm on Sunday and all I have done so far today is create this blog. I have a lot to get done this week and we'll see how it goes.
1. Paint and hang wood cornices in our family room.
2. Move all the furniture out of the family room and office for the new carpeting that we need to to that damn ice damn. Oh then move all that furniture back.
3. Run 4 times this week.
4. Check out the new YMCA and possibly join.
5. Go through at least 1/2 the basement to start organizing for that much needed garage sale.
6. Only buy lunch out 1 time this week. Make sure I cook and/or pack a lunch every other day!!
7. Update my resume.
8. Install Pixelmator on the mac.

Goals for the year

OK, I have had thoughts of starting this blog for a bit but have just now been able to do it because until we got our new computer last week, the thought of building anything with the old computer would have surely been a waste of time. Besides the fact that it would have made me want to hurt myself or someone else due to its annoying inability to get anything done at a reasonable rate of speed.

First let me thank all the wonderful friends of mine who already have blogs and have been the inspiration for me to start this blog. We'll see if I feel the same way about this and you after I finish this 'project' of mine. Oh yeah the word project just about makes me sweat and break out in hives, as for some reason that list gets longer and longer as I get crazier and crazier. Yet, another reason to start this blog to make myself accountable to myself and those who read this silly blog of mine.

OK, so here goes and here's the goal of this blog of mine to try to organize my crazy and hectic life.
Goals of the year:
1. I will post at the beginning of each week the goals I would like to accomplish for the week and again at the end of the week to check in and let anyone who is crazy enough to read this besides myself what I have accomplished or failed.
2. Actually exercise on a regular basis including running/jogging.
3. Obtain my goal weight.
4. Eat healthy and cook at home more often.
5. Get my house back in order after this past winter's ice damn. Damn that Damn!!!
6. Finish organizing my house and getting rid of what we no longer need or want. Including the basement.
7. Learn how to use my new photo editing program and graphic program on the new mac we just purchased.
8. Place family photos around the house. I already have the frames but need to edit pictures, print them, and hang them....ugh!!!
9. Run 3 1/2 marathons in 2010 or 2 1/2 marathons and a triathlon. Oh yeah and live doing it :)
10. Be more organized; thus this blog!

OK, wish me luck on this adventure. I will need it. I look forward to posting about my adventures, trials, and tribulations along the way.
