So, it is New Year's Eve. Any plans???? So far, mine involve getting the tree and Christmas decor put away, working on lesson plans for February, doing the dishes, laundry, and making a celebratory chocolate cheesecake (smaller one, I have different size pans ;) ). Afterall, I need it gone soon!!! LOL!!!

2012 Resolutions

  • Get healthy!! This is my biggie. I know this is probably MOST people's Resolution, but I am serious!!
  • Make my family stronger
    • Less TV
    • more Church, we need to find a church home
    • family prayer
    • more time with Isabelle individually
    • more family activities and meals

That last one ( more family activities and meals), has been hard with Matt's schedule. He works nights, so, generally, he goes to bed about 1-3 in the afternoon. His week runs Sun night to Thurs night, but he often works the weekend, too. Of course, that makes Church rough, too.

Now that Isabelle is homeschooling, it opens up new possibilities for our family. So I am looking for some help. I need ideas to make this work!! Our family needs this.

The only idea I have thus far is the make lunch our "family meal" instead of dinner. All of us at the table, talking about our day and whatnot.

In other news, this is the last weekend for Isabelle to have the opportunity to deer hunt. It is late youth in KY, so Matt and Isabelle are 2 hours away. Really hoping Isabelle gets a good shot today!! Please pray that they get home safely!!

Be safe out there tonight. Not everyone is responsible for their choices.


  1. prayers abound that they have a fun and safe trip :) Great Resolutions Alicia :)

  2. Our resolutions are so similar! I am excited to follow along as we both meet our goals! Safe travels for Matt and Isabelle
