resolutions are good, right? they are like goals or life improvements. if you don't resolve to do things differently you are essentially saying there is no room for improvement in your life. even tiny resolutions are good!

this year i resolve to:

~ organize, organize, organize!! (and then organize some more!) our home is the size of a tea cup so needless to say keeping everything in it's place and clutter out is so important. this will be an ongoing struggle for me, i suspect.

~ save! we have been working on getting rid of all our debt for some time now and will continue to do so. ideally we will cut all credit from our lives!

~ reduce, reuse, recycle! simply use less, repurpose everything possible and recycle things we cannot reuse. i recommend everyone take 20 minutes of their day to sit and watch the story of stuff. make your kids watch too!

~support local! we kinda sucked at this the past year. we did not plant a garden last spring and did not buy local produce nearly enough. this year we will make a huge effort to support local whenever possible~ produce, meat, books, coffee...

~be healthy! okay so this isn't really a resolution as much as a lifestyle but we will continue to be proactive about our health and take good care of our bodies!

~laugh! i will resolve to laugh, smile and be happy as often as possible this year. life is to short to be stressed and grouchy over silly things that often cannot be changed. and with a house full of 4 active kids, a crazy husband, a dog and 2 cats the hilarity never ends!

Minus the extra cat...and we live in the same household. I'll have to check back and see how your goals are going! :)

These are all excellent resolutions! I don't make resolutions, but New Years goals. Hopefully, I'm less likely to blow them. :)
