New Year, New Chances...

So...
I don't make resolutions. But I do have goals for 2008, so here goes.

First of all, I received the most fabulous Christmas gift from my husband...the Rosetta Stone French course. Yes, that's right...I'm going to learn to speak French like it's my JOB. My goal is to sit at some chic little bistro in Paris and order a fabulous meal without sounding like Clark W. Griswold. I started my lessons last week and they are FUN. I'm learning lots...but I still sound worse than the Griswolds (remember "European Vacation?"), so I have a long way to go. Au revoir!

Secondly, we built a new garage last summer and added a nice-sized room above it. We painted, put in carpet, added some heat/ac and now the room is ready to be used. Since we are not the skinniest of people, Scott and I decided to use this new addition as a home gym/hang-out room for us and the girls. The BowFlex is already up there...so is the treadmill. Now I just gotta get a TV, some mirrors, and some jammin' tunes so that I can start working my flabby booty out. Oh...and I need a sofa (not for me--I'll be feeling the burn, remember? It's for my girls!) and a few other things. But the goal is to get that room in order and USE IT!

Finally...as a child of the Most High, I have decided that I need to know Him better. For Christmas I have my sweet husband 2 books on Bible maps/timelines/charts, etc. and they are fascinating! I wanna learn more about Biblical history. (Gee--don't I have a degree in this already?) I wanna learn more about my Jesus. I wanna study the Word more. Basically, I just wanna grow. Well...I want my physical body to shrink, of course, but the spiritual stuff needs to keep on getting bigger and bigger. And how awesome is it that these two can exist together???? God is good.

This blog thing is way new for me...I have a lot to learn, so hopefully this will get more interesting for you, dear reader. Stick with me...


p.s. The countdown has begun...my beloved "Lost" returns on Thursday, January 31, at 8 pm on ABC. If you haven't delved into the Lost world (and why the heck haven't you? It's only THE best show. Ever.), get your sweet little act together and rent all 3 seasons on DVD now so that you can get caught up. I'm serious. Run to the rental place, or get them in your Netflix queue...whatever you do, get ready to get Lost again. 28 days and counting...
