My Happy List & Resolutions

Happiness is:

Good friends to make you laugh, talk you down off the cliff, and carry some of the burden for you.

Good food

A furry dog to warm my feet

A little girl saying "goodbye everybody" spontaneously to no one in particular

Warm hugs of comfort (from anyone not considered a scary patient)

Becoming debt free and a conscious consumer

Loving myself enough to say adieu to drama no matter who/what/when/where/why

In 2008 I will:

Run: 5K, 10K, 1/2 Marathon (April in Nashville....) & maybe a full 26.2 mi

Lose 25 pounds

Eat for health not entertainment! (Yes that does include dessert, but not mindless snacking. I am a champ at eating a serving of something without noticing/savoring it. grrrrr)

Read at least one non-toddler book a month

Take the girls on a special "field trip" each month

Stay out of debt.

Apply to Grad School. wow.

Okay, that is a pretty weighty list. I think I will stop there.

I hope everyone has had a perfectly fabulous start to 2008!

Great lists! Best of luck with graduate school.

If you are saying goodbye to drama, does that mean you are saying goodbye to me? No way!

Do you have 25 # to lose?

I told you which book you should start with! How great that you made a book goal. Let us know if you want to be overwhelmed and join goodreads!

super list! I'm with Karianne on the ?? about if you even have 25# to lose. Ummmm are you confusing yourself with me?

I'm excited about your running goals! I'm also inspired to follow suit---at least the 5K; not committing to the others. :)

Go girl!
