New Year, New Decade, New Goals...

Well, not to be left out, I too making some resolutions, well, more like a list of goals for the "new year" and the new decade! So here's my list of goals, now where's yours? Toni at The Happy Housewife will be hosting a goal-posting thread stating tomorrow, so go ahead & make a list of goals & join in here!!

Personal Goals:

-Exercise atleast 3-4 times a week (atleast using Your Shape on the Wii)
-Lose weight (ideally, I'd like to get back down to less than I was before I got married...that was 3 years & 2 babies ago!) Notice I'm not putting a specific number down!
-Have atleast one "date night" a month ( I know this doesn't sound like it's very often, but next semester we will be lucky to get that one night a month. Of course, this doesn't mean we won't spend time with each other, but for this goal, I want atleast one specific night set aside to be child-free & spent together outside of our house!)
-Find an organizer/planner & actually use it!

Financial Goals:

-Pay off Kenney's car *We are so close to having this paid off!! Soon, we will be putting what we would normally pay into savings every month so we can by this time next year hopefully get a new to us car/van!*
-Pay off all our credit cards.
-Commit to trackig ALL expenses during the month of January.
-Create a budget, using the Crown Materials & our expense tracking in the month of Jan., and stick to it!

Home Goals:

-Reorganize coupon binder & go through them weekly to discard expireds & put up new ones.
-Meal Plan weekly & stick to menu atleast 75% of the time.
-Have one "prep" night set aside to do all baking & other prep work for the week's menu.
-Do atleast one tub of laundry each day.
-Mop kitchen floor weekly instead of monthly.

Family Goals:

-Finish Braydon's "book-it" lists before the 15th of every month
-Create a chore's chart & allowance for Braydon.
-Begin potty training Makenna.
-Have a "parents meeting" weekly to discuss weekly events

Bloggy Goals:

-Blog consistently, atleast 3 or 4 times a week to start.
-Participate in atleast one meme a week.
-Update the layout & name of the blog. *I've already got a new name & theme for the blog, now just have to learn how to redo the cool bloggy look!!

Lofty, I know, but I've gotta start some where! I will update you on my progress, and will hopefully have the new look up soon!!
