new year.

so, it’s the new year.  i haven’t posted in a while… really took advantage of the break for the holidays!  i have to say that this was one of the best breaks i’ve ever had.  when i was younger, i didn’t really appreciate the break for all it was worth.  as i got into high school, i worked a lot through my holiday breaks, so while it was a break from school i definitely still had a lot going on.  the time off that i had this year from christmas through new year’s was the longest break that i’ve had since i was a sophomore in high school!  wow.  some highlights were:

  • being at my mom’s in the hill country for six days!
  • staying up late every night & still getting eight hours of sleep
  • going on challenging, hilly runs on the ranch that my mom lives on
  • drinking tons of really delicious coffee
  • seeing the christmas lights in Johnson City
  • going on a walk with my hubby
  • sitting at the amazing starbucks in marble falls – it overlooks the lake!
  • cooking with my mom… Cuban black bean soup, big salads with lots of winter veggies, french toast, gumbo.
  • getting home and “spring cleaning” with michael!  our house feels fresh!
  • setting goals for the new year.  i’ve really been thinking a lot about what are achievable goals for me for 2009… i’m excited!

i don’t really remember being that inspired to think through goals last new year’s, but this year i feel up for the challenge of thinking through my priorities and setting goals accordingly.  this past weekend i set aside time to think through the things that are important to me and what action will help me grow in different areas.  some of my goals are:

  • run a 1/2 marathon (physical)
  • read one book a month (mental)
  • memorize one passage of scripture a month (spiritual)
  • carve out “personal” time for myself each week (emotional)

i’m excited about seeing what all 2009 holds!  happy new year!
