2009 Goals

Well, January is over! I don't think I shared my New Years Goals for 2009, but I thought I would with all of you. Those who know me know I'm a huge list person. It helps me to visually see what I need get get done and keeps me focused. Plus, it feels awesome to cross things off my list. So here's an update on how things are coming along. I must say I'm slacking in some areas. I have an excuse though- Parker has a pretty nasty cold right now so I'm pretty tired from listening to his cough all night. He's also passing it on to Cory and me so I'm feeling a little under the weather myself. Good excuse, right?
