A new Year

I'm not sure what I expect out of 2010. This was the first year where I didn't have a New Year's Resolution in mind to try and tackle. I think my life is just too busy right now to focus on a specific improvement. I would like to say that sometime in 2010, I would like to get back into a fitness program and finish losing the weight I gained while TTC (trying to conceive). Since I am still breastfeeding and pumping, I really can't make any drastic changes until I wean the girls.

This year I would like to focus on being a happy wife and mother. The stresses of having two infants while working full time and going to school full time is enough to stress a person out. Luckily, I only have 2 more classes to complete after the one I am in now, and then I can start look at other career options. I would like to say I would hope to find a way to work less hours so I can be with the girls more often, but financially that probably won't happen until I can start teaching online classes. Maybe then, I can find a part-time position in the dental field to supplement my income and I would have more time with the girls.

Jesse and I should just focus on paying down some debts this year and work on spending wiser so we can have a little more flexibility. This is easier said and done with 2 children to support, but I'm sure we can make some changes that will help us get closer to more financial freedom.

So there you go, no specific goals or resolutions for this year. I am just hoping for another great year filled with health and happiness. Happy New Year Everyone!!!!


  1. I think not setting specific goals is the best way to do it, Amy. Then you don't have any sense of defeat if you don't meet one of your goals!

    I can't believe you just have 2 classes left-- that's awesome! I was just looking and mine and felt utter disappointment when I realized I have nearly 1.5 years of classes to go!

    anyway-- Happy New Year!

  2. Sounds like you've got some great goals! I hope you are able to finish up those classes and get to focusing on enjoying your time. It does get easier as they get older, and you'll find that balance. - Tkeys
