Let's see if we can get 2010 posts by January 1st, 2010! That gives us 12 and a half hours if we're aiming for Eastern Standard Time (when the ball drops in NYC) but we can always extend the deadline to another time zone if we can't make it.

I love "plan B" being worked into the original plan.

Since this is a New Year's thread, what are some New Year's resolutions everyone has?

I think one of my main, if not the main resolution is to stop letting other people effect my life.

Another is to continue to work on incorporating healthy eating into our family-cutting out all processed sugars and goods in general being the main focal point. (May be easier said than done-we shall see!)

Knitting more. I know it sounds silly-but I LOVE knitting, and hardly ever do it. I think knitting more would honestly be a good thing.

jamie. crinkly (not quite crunchy) mama to 3 amazing little girls, an awesome little boy, and a baby girl making her debut at the end of this summer.

My New Year's resolution is simply to post to my homeschooling blog at least 3 times per week. It's so easy I can't screw it up!

One of my NYR is to keep clean laundry from piling up on our guest bed.

It's sad when there is NOTHING hanging in your or your son's closet because it all needs to be hung up.

I resolve to be better at this in 2010 and beyond....well, at least until the world comes to an end in 2012. I can hang on that long at least.

Get back into making most things from scratch, exercising and crafting more.
9 months of nausea followed by colicky baby does not lend itself to gettin' things done!

We can so get to 2010 by 2010.

My resolutions are to get this household ready to move in 3 months and to get back into shape with good nutrition and exercising for everyone in my family.

Happy New Year's Eve!

2009 had a lot of ups and downs for me. We moved, my DH deployed, I had DD. For the upcoming year, my #1 resolution is going to be working on getting back to a hot bod for when my DH gets home in the spring I'm going to start the couch to 5k plan. I'd also like to work on making my house into more of a home and actually decorating it. DH and I have done a lot of work on our marriage while he's been gone and I'm looking forward to putting those things into action.

I haven't really thought about NYRs that much this year. I know I need to declutter a bunch. Like always. I need to stick to my budget more and stop buying impulsively. But how do you change something that you have always done and enjoy?

Resolutions: Get control over my health, my finances, my house, and my relationships...all while working on my spirituality. So that's about everything!

Doing tonight: Stay home with the kids and maybe watch the ball drop on TV if I decide to stay up that late. Today I'm going to make a vegetarian black eyed pea soup for tomorrow.

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

Wow, that one is tough. Good luck quitting smoking. I quit when I got pregnant but I still have days where I want to light up, 4+ years later. You can do it!
