Happy New Year!

I know that you are probably mega confused by the title.  Right?  Afterall, it is almost February.  However, with all that January brought, I knew that keeping any sort of resolutions would be near impossible, so, even though I am six-ish weeks late, I have decided to make my new years resolutions now.

1.  Get up and move!  I know nearly everyone makes a promise to themselves to lose weight in the new year, and, well...I am no exception.  I have gained what I have called "the Newlywed ten" and I would like that to come off.  I also have been seriously lacking in the energy department, and I know that working on my fitness will bounce me right back!  Last week I went to the gym three times and I hope to do the same this week.

2.  Stop being so lazy!  I have seriously got to stop this.  I am even so bad!  I do things like ask my husband to grab the remote on his way to the couch and grab me some water when I actually sit closer to the kitchen.  I will not become my mother on this!  I am going to try and pick up the house more and when I need something I will get it for myself.  I am sure my husband will appreciate this very much.

3.  Finish my semester with a bang.  If I get A's on my last two classes, I will graduate with honors.  I so need to do this.  So, I need to buckle up and do the work.  The first week of the semester I did great!  Now...ehh, I need to get back on the study train.

4.  Get moved!  I know that I am supposed to leave in June.  Where to, you might ask?  I HAVE NO IDEA!  And, if you couldn't tell from the all caps explosion, it is starting to freak my planner self out just a tiny bit.  I know where we asked for, but that means next to nothing sometimes in the military.  So, I am stuck in this for right now.

5.  Volunteer more.  I signed up to work the huge Special Olympics event on base here, so that is a start.  My last weeks here, while I am not working, I am going to bake cookies for the troops that are returning from downrange.  The USO puts that on and I have always wanted to help.  When I get back to the states, I plan to increase my volunteering with animals (I previously helped with the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue, which is where I got my puggie baby from).  And, if able to, I hope to work with the spouse group on base.  I tried to here but, well, they make it difficult for the working spouse.

6.  Become more domestic.  I have absolutely no crafty skill whatsoever, and while I am ok in the kitchen, I need some work in the wifey department.  At least I am new at it, so I have a little bit of an excuse, but I would like to hone my cooking, decorating, and crafty skills.

I am sure I will come up with more later in the year, as I always do, but, other than maybe learning some sort of hobby, right now that is the dream.

Every time the AF asks where we want to go, we say "EUROPE!" Then they send us to Utah, the Pentagon, and rural New Jersey. Sing it with me "you can't always get what you want..."

Hey, I'm new around here, just came over from the milspouse weekly roundup. I love your resolutions. And you know, Chinese New Year was 2/3, so you were actually close to a new year! We just got a pug from a local rescue here in California; she's such a sweetie, I can't believe anyone neglected her. I'll definitely be back to read more.
