    I quit making New Years resolutions many years ago. I figure why set myself up for failure right off the bat every year. I just do what I do, and don't do what I don't do.....works for me.

    @lexterwayne thanks for the dave ramsey thing! I have spent a good bit of time today looking at it and hubby at home has been too! Doubt I will buy books but don't really see that you need to! So, what are you doing in your girls room? Mackenzie is 5 now and her room is still pink & sage (from when she was a baby) and she told me the other day...she wanted pink and brown or pink and black...oh my! So we may start on her room....oh if the budget allows.

    @2bulliefamily the girls are 9 and 6 and they wanna do stripes and polka dots!! the2 walls will be a bright blue and the other 2 a dark red color (i believe) and the trim is gonna be black, i know i know but it actually calms all the colors down!! we are gonna attempt to paint wide stripes with a few different colors. gonna buy paint samples to do the stripes with which depends on where you go 5 to 15 dollars for the samples. and then all the accents will be polka dots like the rug pic frames and their bedding. they want a bunk bed so we are gonna buy a full over full (we have 2 extra full mattresses) and then when they are ready for their own room we can break it down and then they'll have reg full beds!! maddy the oldest picked out the wall colors but they actually look really good, we bought the colors a while back and had to stop working on it during the holidays UGH!
    also if yall have a iphone dave ramsey has an app for your phone, its pretty cool!!

    Hmmm well I AM going to lose this last stubborn 10 lbs and WILL keep it off LOL. I gain weight really easy and it's always a struggle to get it back off! Then second is to find a new job closer to home! My hours got cut at my current job so I need to find a job making more money and my commute is seriously going to be the death of me! I never knew what affect it would have but it really drives me up the wall, more stress than I need. Thats about it and keep doing what I am doing, work, school, spending time with and taking care of the ones I love

    Hmmm ...

    I'm sure just about everything I'm going to write has been put.

    Going to eat more healthily .... I know what I should eat because I tell all my PT clients .. but then never seem to be organised enough to get my own meals ready for during the day when I'm out working, and end up eating pre-packed microwave meals or fastfood junk. So maybe my first resolution should be to learn some good time management techniques!!

    I'm going to google Dave Ramsey because I've never heard of him, but I too would like to be debt free by this time next year. In 2012 my daughter will graduate from High School and we really want to move out into the country. So I'm still building up my credit rating, which is tough when you've only been in the country for 4 years. My credit score is lower than it could be because they say I haven't got enough credit history ...

    I'm going to continue to get rid of the work that I like to call "toxic" ... the clients that I don't really 'bond' with, and the classes that I simply hate to teach!!

    AND, finally, I want to spend more time in the house and yard. I've painted every room in the last 4 years except the kids bathroom and whilst they are both in England during the summer I am going to totally re-vamp it!! I'm thinking "Sex & The City" colors and style!!

    @lexterwayne and @kazzy220 I am thinking we need to start a new thread with pics of room decor. I LOVE decorating, although I cant afford to do what I want with every room. Someday I will.
