Happy New Year!

I am excited about 2008, but I really have to say that 2007 was a wonderful year. I entered the blogging world and have been so inspired by so many other blogs. You all know who you are...if I visit your blog, I am inspired. Sometimes I do not comment, but I am always smiling or thinking or even in awe at some of the wonderful blogs out there. Sweet Hubby said he was going to start a blog. He was going to name it "My Wife Is A Blogger". He felt it would be a very popular blog for husbands. I started cutting down my blog reading after that. It really does not take alot of time to write a blog, but reading blogs...that is another story.

I have already posted some of my goals for 2008. I am a goal setter all year round. I make goal posters regularly and always have them up. I just took my last one down as 80% of the pictures on there had been achieved. It is a proven fact that a goal poster will bring about the success of goals 50% more than if you have no goal poster. Habakkuk 2:2 says "Write the vision, make it plain on tablets that he may run who reads it." Even God reminds us of the importance of seeing our goals. Put them where you can see them daily and you will run with them, even without knowing it! I had tried to quit smoking many times. I ended up putting it on my goal poster and within 6 months I had quit! Other things like an Oreck vacuum I did not achieve, but let me tell you Hazel is just as good as any Oreck I could have gotten. I will be making another goal poster early in January. My quilting goals and weight loss goals are a priority. Instead of the Tales From The Scale, I have decided to join Charlene in the Live Well Wednesday's. I really like the idea behind it. You can click on the badge on my side bar. I will be doing Body For Life. Angie, bless her heart, started a whole new blog regarding this. Check it out. I am amazed at her. She knows her stuff and shares it so willingly! Thanks Ang!
As for the quilting goals, I have added a RRRR. No, I am not growling!! It is a mystery Round Robin Row by Row. Debi will be starting it tomorrow, and the first of every month through June she will add to it. Click here to read about it. I plan to do mine with a muslin background and scraps. She has it set up where you do all your own rows...no mailing anything out.
Well I am off to take the boys to their brother's house and Charlotte and I are going to a fabric store! Sounds like a great way to end the year. Talk to you in 2008...I am starting off the year with a Tackle It Tuesday!!!

What a great reminder to be wise about the time God has given us, I am hoping my blog will be a way to help keep me on track but I think having a tablet up will help even more. And place it above my computer when I get lost in Blogland! ;0)

Bren, Wishes for a great new year and that your goals will be realized. You sound so determined, I know you can do anything you set your mind to. DH arrived home today and said his trip was really a good one. It's good to have him back here with me for NY Eve. I gave myself permission to play as long as I like on the computer tonight while he is enjoying a football game and catching up on his newspapers. I know exactly what you mean about the blog reading is what is the time-robber...writing takes hardly any time, but reading....well it sure sucks up my time! I'm doing better now but I comment so much less for that reason. Well anyway, happy new year...take care. cw
