Goals for 2009
I have been working on my list of goals for 2009 for the past week and have finally decided on a few that I think I can stick to, I haven't made a resolution in years because that word seems to fail me. However, I am a goal setter and list maker so I think this will work out better in the long run. The first goal I have is to be a better manager of our home, in 2008 we averaged about $900 per month on groceries, household items and toiletries, my goal for 2009 is a monthly budget of $500 and to save the remaining $400. I want to spend more time with my sons playing games, this is something they love to do and once a week isn't enough. I want to be a better wife to my husband by putting is laundry away everyday (I don't mind washing and folding it's the putting away that I have a problem with). I want to spend more time with my extended family, I would like to take one Saturday or Sunday a month and have a family dinner whoever wants to come has a standing invitation, I think this would bring us all closer. The goals that I have chosen for 2009 are reasonable and will produce fantastic results.
