Happy New Year!!!

I can't believe it is 2013 already!  I hope everybody had a great night last night.  Do you have any goals for this year?

I think when I have more time, I will find a crochet class. I have a friend that said seh may do one at the church. That would be neat!

I think the tips I liked for basic crochet were from About.com. Nice diagrams, good written explanations and video too. I should learn more stitches and finally figure out how to read a pattern. I also need to research what kind of yarn to use for different projects (both crochet and knitting, since my handmade dishcloths weren't very effective).

I love your learn to knit goal! I really should put my crafty projects more on the front burner now that I have a more regular schedule. I would love to catch up on scrapbooking (or even get a miniscule amount done lol) and learning to crochet would be neat

Happy New Year to you too!!! I love your goals and hope that you have great success :) I am with you on number 2! I really need to get back to the gym after the new year and i'm half excited and half dreading it lol I know I want to get more on the ball with the kids' schooling and a better schedule and I'm really looking forward to the next Bible study :)

Copying from my Bookshelf post...

 Edit and research my teen-fiction novel starting in January.

- Participate in other writing challenges throughout the year to keep creativity alive and kicking!

- Continue in various Bible studies, through GoodMorningGirls and also my church. Planning to use one or both of my devotional Bibles in 2013.

- Less computer time if possible, though I am using my computer and website knowledge to maintain the church's site and for tutoring those with very basic skills of their own.

- Ditch Facebook yet again? Still not sure - I like the private groups I'm a part of, but I do think my life would go on quite well if I were to get email addresses from most of those folks and then I might not find myself spending too much time on social media (Google+ included). Since I wrote that, I've been thinking I might do social media and most blog reading on the weekends, not during the week. I'll keep up with iVillage, of course, because of the volunteering and also because I do still like message boards a lot. :)

- More strength training and continue to walk a lot.

- Learn to knit.

- Continue using cleaning schedules and meal planning to organise household tasks, thereby reducing stress levels. :)

- Read The Hobbit, maybe re-read Harry Potter books again. And I'm sure there will be lots more reading goals to come. :)

I don't do resolutions.  But here are things I want to work on this year.

1.  Get myself and my family eating healthier this year.  Finally reach that elusive weight goal!

2.  Get back into a gym schedule.

3. Do more bible studies with Good Morning Girls.  (Contact me if you are interested in joining the group.)

4. Read the entire Bible.  I bought a new chronological Bible to start today..woohoo

5. I want to work on keeping my temper in check.  I have been known to blow some steam on my family when I am stressing out.  :(
