Our 2009 New Year Resolutions

January 1st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Since everyone else seems to be posting them, here are our goals for 2009.  I hope that by putting these out for the world to see, that we might be more inspired to work towards them.

  1. Get organized.
    Our house and lives are still severely disorganized, and it definitely costs us money.  I needed a hex wrench a month ago, and, even though I know I own two sets, I could find neither and ended up going and buying another set.  What a waste.  Even more annoying, I just found a set I didn’t even know I had in a box of junk I bought at an auction.
  2. Get all of our credit card debt paid off.
    This should be pretty straight forward if things go well.  You can track our progress on the gauge on the right.
  3. Have $10,000 of our Emergency Fund saved.
    If we get our credit card debt paid off, we should be able to make this.
  4. Lose 20 pounds (each of us).
    My wife has made incredible progress losing weight, I have made none.  I might have to try the grapefruit & fish oil diet again.
  5. Go to the Liberty Bowl parade.
    Our two middle children are going to play in the marching band in the parade, and our oldest son lives near there, so we would like to make this Christmas.
  6. Entertain more.
    We built a deck in our back yard two years ago and used it quite a bit that summer.  This past summer, I think we used it once to entertain, and we really missed it.

What are your goals for this year?
