Happy New Year!

2008 is over! I can't say that I am sad to see it go. I am hoping and praying 2009 brings a better economy, end to war, and better health to all of us.
Not that this year has been all bad. I am sooo blessed! I have and incredible husband, three adorable healthy little boys, a semi-crazy and insanely generous sister, a great relationship with my mom and dad (wasnt always so), a healthy brother (also wasnt always so), 3 more awesome sisters, and by the grace of God we have managed to pay all of our bills!

I usually don't make resolutions, afraid I will just set myself up for failure, but this year I have a few.

#1 Be a better wife, mother, and friend

#2 Have a healthy baby!
in order to to this I have to commit to a few more:
A. Lose 10% of my weight
I need to lose much more, but this is a start
B. Take vitamins and eat well balanced meals

#3 Save even more money with coupons

#4 Continue to get A's in college

#5 Blog at least 4 days a week

Not so bad right? I think I can handle this.
What are your resolutions?

Wow you get A's, any secrets? I'm going to VCC this semester.

No secrets for the straight A's... besides studying my butt off!! I work really hard and I am only 2 classes at a time.

Well I guess the 2 classes only help out. For my first year I took 5 each emester, ended up with 3-C's, 1-A, 6-B's. Last fall i did only 2, ended up with 2 B's. This time i'm taking 3, but no science/labs. If you, a mother of 3, can get A's, There isn't too much excuse for me, since i am currently not working and am childless. Do you make flash cards or do study groups? Sorry for the big post but i have to raise my GPA to get into the program i want at UCF. (.3 points away)THANKS!

I am a little OCD and study ALOT, like 3 hours a night. I havent done flash cards, but for math I make study guide/tests and do them over and over again. I actually cried more than once, lol. I hope I can do as well this semester! Good Luck to you.
