HAPPY 2011!!!  :)
Wow!  Time does fly by, but I'm looking forward to a great year!!!! 
Last night my kids asked me what my New Year's resolution was.  I didn't really have one and although they both claimed to have made one, they actually set goals for themselves instead.  My friend and I were talking this morning and she said that she was setting goals for herself as well.  The more I thought about it,
the more I liked the idea. 

I got on a roll and came up with a bunch of things I'd like to do this year.  I don't know if I'll get them all done, but I'm gonna work hard at it.   I guess that is something that is nice with a new year...a clean slate.

Longer term goals are to continue to be the best me I can be. are my goals for 2011 in no particular order.  I'd love to hear some of your goals as well!
