This month, so far

We started this month with my dad's birthday.  Then I went to Mrs. William's Christmas Party.  A cool train playdate.  Bunco with the girls (Lori stole my camera for part of it).  Then a 6 year old's birthday party.  Just in case your wondering what all the pictures are.  Oh, I also got the girls a cardboard castle.

hello 2011

Well another year has started and it seems that normally it is accompanied by sets of new resolutions to do or not do something in particular.  Well why not jump in on the band wagon and make a list of stuff to do this year. I don't know how resolved I really am at these items but I do plan on doing them for at least a month or two.

1.  Well I do not plan on taking more pictures this year.  But I do plan on taking more purposeful photos this year.  To have more planning and forethought go into them before I push the shutter button.  To consider light and background.  Not that I won't take lots of pictures this year, but I want to take better pictures this year.  (F.Y.I. I ended up shooting 3,401 pictures this last year)

2.  Couponing seems to be a popular trend that I'm going to get back into and currently seem to be doing alright.  If I get any supper stellar deals I'll try and let you know.

3.  I plan on getting more sleep.  A well rested Mom is a happier more productive Mom.  In fact why don't I get to that right now.  There are some more things to add but why don't I end here for now and I'll get back to it another day.

Besides, I'm kinda wondering who besides my Mom and Sis-in-law happen to read this.  Leave a comment to let me know.
