    This is my first time participating in this...hope I get it right!

    Marriage--Spend more time with DH--sit with him while he is watching football instead of going out or being elsewhere in the house

    Family--Try and have Family Game Night once a week

    Friends--Call R--I haven't spoken to her in over a year! E-mails just don't cut it

    Self--Celebrate Me! on the 26th

    Home--Jumpstart January! Do tidies every day and at least 1 LOL per day

    Work--Continue subbing when possible

    Hobbies--Make fleece blanket for me! Continue cross-stitching

    Spiritual--Be sure and attend Mass every Sunday!

    Marriage-- DH will be leaving next week for Korea. When he gets there, establish a plan for communication!

    Family-- Maybe weekly dinners at my mom's (depends on her) and try to see my dad more (he lives 1 1/2 hours away).

    Friends-- Work harder to stay in touch with my friends in Texas. We moved to Missouri in November and I haven't spoken to my friends in TX for a month or so. Make an effort to spend time with my friend from grade school who lives 1 1/2 hours away.

    Self-- Really work on learning to relax and taking care of myself. Get registered at the VA so I can get my knee looked at. Figure out something special for the 24th to celebrate ME.

    Home-- Get this house organized so it can be more efficient, waiting for Jumpstart January to start. Also develop a basic cleaning schedule to stick with every week. And i'm doing the Monthly Magic.

    School-- I changed Work to School because I don't work but I am a full time college student. My semester starts on the 14th so my goal is to start strong and stay that way. I tend to procrastinate alot and I want to not do that anymore.

    Hobbies-- I plan on making time every week to work on something. I'm still working on my monthly craft plan. This is my first year doing this. I plan to start on a Photo Journal for DH while he's away and start and finish a Christmas Notebook for my mom for her birthday present on the 31st.

    Spiritual-- I want to learn more about my path and brush up on my tarot cards so I can start doing readings again.

    My goals for January are:

    Marriage have a date afternoon, maybe lunch - have been unsuccessful with date nights - but now DS is old enough to babysit for a few hours and DH & I prefer him home alone with sibs in the daytime for now
    Family plan at least 1 Family Night - something more involved than just a movie night - perhaps a game night or an activity we can all do together
    Friends look into friends' interest in planning a scrapbook crop every other month again - we did this for a year or so a while back, but then the local store we would meet at closed
    Self begin exercise routine - very basic just so I can say I got moving 3 or 4 days each week - even if it's just 10 or 15 minutes each session
    Celebrate Me - 20th - not sure what yet
    Home JumpStart January!! - can't wait
    Work I stay home, but I do need to look into what I need to do to get my teaching license renewed as I hope to return in about 2 years
    Hobbies organize craft boxes - purge, organize, and decide what I want to work on
    also, I need to organize and purge scrapbooking supplies
    Spiritual actually do the reading and look over the questions for my Bible study ahead of time - I know I'd get more out of it if I do
    also, look into and organize some Lenten activities/prayers/crafts to do with kids and as a family
