2010 Goals

I'm having a hard time believing it's going to be 2010 in a few hours. Where did the time go? As a child I remember people saying that time seemed to go faster as you got older. I never understood that until a few years ago when it started happening to me. I don't know what causes it...maybe all the busyness in our lives? How do you slow down and still get the things done that need to be done? I'm not sure if I have an answer to that. But, I do know that creating a plan is necessary to make changes. I've come up with some goals for this coming New Year. Not too many to be overwhelming, but enough to make life interesting. :)

1. Read through the bible in 90 days.
2. Read through the shelf full of unread Christian books I have.

1. Eat healthier.
2. Exercise 4 days a week.

1. Plan a date night once a week.
2. Get back in the habit of praying for dh daily.

1. Spend more fun time with the kids.
2. Pray for each child daily.
3. Increase my food storage to a one year supply.
4. Get my garden going.
5. Get rid of more stuff!

1. Pay off a loan.
2. Read Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover.


  1. Sounds like you have some very achievable goals! You will love Total Money Makeover!

  2. Great goals! I agree The Total Money Makeover is so AWESOME you will love it!

  3. We did the Dave Ramsey program last year and it really helped get us on track! I also would like to get rid of more stuff!
    Happy New Year!

  4. We too loved the Total Money Makeover. Good luck with it-totally worth it!!

    I am going to work on food storage too. I have gotten started several times, and always fall off the wagon.

    Happy New Year!

  5. You've got some great goals! The food storage thing sounds overwhelming. I'm definitely going to be working harder on frugality in the New Year to a new level. I'll be reading whatever I can get my hands on regarding that topic.
    Happy New Year!

  6. Awesome goals! I, too have a shelf full of books that need to be read!

    Good luck and Happy New Year!

  7. Wow--great goals. We've thought about the Dave Ramsey book several times...would love to hear how it goes!

  8. great goals. very similiar to the way I think! I will say a prayer you perservere :)

  9. Have you heard of project Noah? Where you spend an extra $5 (probably a little more now) per week, and have enough for 2 people for a year.

  10. You have lots of worthy goals this year. I'd like to accomplish most of those myself. Good luck.


  11. Jillian, I haven't heard of project noah. Do you have a link for it?

  12. great goals! very acheivable. I haven't even thought about goals for the next year. just trying to keep my head above water right now!
