Revisiting my goals.

 I have made goals for the deployment and for 2011 and I want to revisit them frequently to keep my butt in shape. :] I may need to revise them a little too.

  1. Find stuff to do in the surrounding area that we haven't done before. EXPLORE. (Wait til summer)
  2. Get through the 30-Day Shred..if I don't like it...P90X...or both. So...get my azz in shape for when Nick gets home.  Regularly exercise. This starts on Monday. I want to STICK TO IT. Doing the 30 day shred all over again.
  3. Drink more water. No soda. *I've gotten into a bit of a routine with this one. Breakfast - coffee, Lunch - juice, Dinner - milk. Drink water otherwise.
  4. KEEP my cleaning schedule. 
  5. Organize all of the basement and get rid of anything that is get-riddable. *I really need to do this soon.
  6. Find a place to get rid of the junk in the garage [the broken appliances]. *Find out the next bulk pick up day and if I can put that stuff out.
  7. Read as many books as possible and watch all the movies Nick doesn't want to watch. *Working on. I need to make a list of each.
  8. Try and get my natural hair color back...so no dying my hair crazy colors.
  9. Explore the blogging world a little more. *I've been doing this a lot lately. :]
  10. RECIPES RECIPES RECIPES - find them, use them, share them!
  11. Try to make the best out of the life in Ft. Drum *I want to get the kids out of this house soon.
  12. Don't be a pushover. Stand up for myself. *Not doing so well on this.
  13. Pick up a hobby and STICK to it. *Start crocheting a little every night.
  14. No 'Poo Experiment! That was a no-go.
  15. Make a better, stronger marriage for myself, for my husband and for my kids. *In progress
  16. Be more patient with the kids *Still in progress
  17. Finish my associate's degree and really research culinary school *Working on it.
  18. Potty train Cami. *FRUSTRATION*
  19. Baking GALS or find some other way to contribute to the military side of things.
  20. Be a better friend.
  21. Get my priorities straight.
  22. Make more stuff from scratch.
  23. Stop cursing so much.
*Phew*
That was fun :/ I will repost these on 18 Feb to see how I'm doing.
I'm exhausted. Got a new id today. I didn't photograph as well as I had hoped but it's much better than the last one. They are in the process of removing the SSN from the id. Which is AWESOME. I hated that both of ours was on the old one. Also...it has hubby's new rank and I'm superly proud and it's spiffy. And that's all for today. I'm boring, I know.

Hoping...

I am hoping that I will get back on this blog! I've almost forgotten about it :( I still might be a little MIA in the next few days, but I promise 2011 will be full of obnoxious blogging from yours truly.

I don't remember if I said this since last month, but I love being home. Home = Tennessee. I love being around my family. I love it. I miss them soooo much and I never really realize it until I am home. I am so grateful to have married into one of the best families EVAR!!

With the new year, I started Stumbling. Thank you, Internet, for finding something else for me to get addicted to. LMAO. And Stumbling is an enabler to finding new recipes :) wooooooooo!

Today is my Day #1 of the No 'Poo Experiment. I found it stumbling and my friend Kandice had mentioned it a couple weeks (errr...maybe months) ago. So I was considering. Tonight was my breakdown. My scalp is SO dry and SO itchy. It's just awful. I have tried every dandruff shampoo there is and my head is still awful. So tonight was a baking soda & water mixture massage on my scalp, then rinse, and an apple cider vinegar & water mixture rinse. And no, my head doesn't smell like coleslaw (Aunt Cam :P).

Normally I don't make resolutions. Because I never keep them. But this year I want to make some "goals" - thinking if I call them goals they won't be so angry and relentless and "YOU MUST STICK TO ME" lol.

So here's what I want to do this year:
  • Explore the blogging world a little more.
  • RECIPES RECIPES RECIPES - find them, use them, share them!
  • Try to make the best out of the life in Ft. Drum
  • Read like a motha! I have so many books I want to get through this year and the Kindle/Nook Book Club will help, I'm sure :]
  • Don't be a pushover. Stand up for myself.
  • Pick up a hobby and STICK to it.
  • No 'Poo Experiment!
  • Make a better, stronger marriage for myself, for my husband and for my kids.
  • Be more patient with the kids
  • Finish my associate's degree and really research culinary school
