Happy New Year to all!

It's unbelievable that an entire year has flown by - but it also seems like 2010 lasted forever. I'm excited to have a clean slate in front of me, and am hopeful many issues we've been facing will be resolved within the next 12 months.

Big John and I have gotten back on the workout track in the last couple of weeks, but are still struggling with eating better - and by better, I mean healthier. Make no mistake, we've been eating real well around here! We've looked at finances, checked out the freezer, and decided our grocery store trips need only consist of milk, cereal, fruit, and bread. That should cut out a big chunk of our expenditures. Goals for the upcoming year include getting into better shape, both physically and financially. We've got big plans in the making, and we need to be in the best shape possible, in all ways possible.

My personal "resolution" - actually a necessity - is to BE HAPPIER. I know, that sounds kind of ridiculous, but it's becoming a need, not just a want. So in an effort to help me help myself, I'm instituting a new spot on the blog. I hope to put it over on the side with some of all the other features, but that may not work out just like I'm picturing. So let me get it started here. It's a countdown. A countdown to what, exactly, will be revealed in the coming months. As of today: 99

Whew! That makes me happier already, just to see it in writing. Oh, you'll be so excited when you find out what that means!! Stay tuned. And in the meantime, enjoy the first day of a brand new year. May all your dreams come true! Happy New Year!
