Normally, each year I write down my New Year's Resolutions, but things seem a little different this year.  Don't get me wrong; I do have things I want to change and improve on, but I just have so many things to focus on this year that I haven't had in previous years.  Custody issues, blended family issues, being a newlywed, and the birth of my baby coming up next month.  These are the things my mind is preoccupied with lately, and New Year's Resolutions just don't seem so important in comparison.  But if I were to list some things I want for this year, they would be to

  • strengthen my relationship with my husband and children
  • after the baby's born, lose my baby weight and then some
  • make healthier meals for my family
  • make some new friends in my new town
  • get rid of clutter and get my house organized

I'm sure I'll work on some, if not all, of these, but undoubtedly my focus will be most of the time on the baby.  If you're reading this blog, you've probably had a baby before, and you know how it is.

Do you have New Year's Resolutions?  Or are you like me, with some heavy issues weighing on you that need your focus?  Share them with me in the comments below.

Those are very noble areas to work on...God bless you in your journey. :) I am, as are most people, planning to eat healthier and teach my family to do the same. I am NOT getting any younger!! My body needs to get healthy and in shape now! ;) My other goal is too really save money this more eating out all the time and other wasteful spending.

    I'm just an ordinary mom like you with lots of thoughts and ideas in my head. I'm a "stay-at-home mom", for lack of a better description. I do get out of the house, quite a lot actually, but I do most of my work at home, I guess.
