a look at my 2009...




A few things I want to share with ya'll!!!!


*Hubby found extra work to take up some slack with our finances!! :) Thanks SO much to the good person who is offering the job!!


*The Love Dare is AMAZING!!! Wow. It's just really kicking my tail all over the place!! (more on this later) ;)


*Income tax return coming soon which means:


1. get ahead on bills!!!

2. home improvement projects

3. new computer (hopefully!!)

4. and these

Because just as soon as I get these babies, I get to start RUNNING again!!!! I am SO excited and I just can't wait!! Running does SO much for my state of mind and I am looking forward to the alone time, time to pray and think and hear God. That's what running does for me! :)


*starting on my annual first of the year DEEP cleaning just as soon as I get through cleaning up after this sickness, YUCK.


A few things on my list to do:


*take down light fixtures and wash thoroughly

*Wash walls (yes, I do this)

*Clean out and scrub refrigerator and freezer

*organize pantry, girls closets and bookshelves

*organize bathroom cabinets (Again, ugh.)

*Get Drew's room, FINISHED......



and,


START SEWING!!!!!! (I want to find a simple book of easy projects that I can teach myself and therefore, teach the girls later) I know a little bit about sewing but I want to practice, practice, practice and just get SO much better!!

Well, that's all I can think of for now but ya'll know me and you know how I LOVE to make lists, so I will be back with more, I am sure!!! :)

Love,
Julie

Hey,

Great minds think alike..lol...or sisters do anyway. I already got started on my house...and am 3/4 the way there...course everyone here is well finally...except alaina, she got a nebulizer today..for the bronchitis and allergies..

I got my running shoes a couple of weeks ago and cant wait to start running..course I'm not brave enough to run in 6degree weather either..so it will probably be spring before I get started...but at least I got my shoes and I got two new walking dvd's...

Love Yall and Hope Charlie gets better soon....
