Resolutions for 2013

Oh boy, its that time of year. The time when I lay out all of my resolutions PUBLICLY. There is no room for slacking over here!

Lets get to the chase. Here’s what’s in store for me this year:

1. Run a marathon. I’ve already paid for it and booked the date. Now I just need to put the miles in. Maverick got a running harness for Christmas (lucky him!) so he can keep me going. Or he will stand by me as I pass out on the side of the road, either way.

2. Raise chickens. This one I have started, but considering they haven’t laid a single egg yet and my first butchering was a little…….lets say a “learning experience”. I’m ready to do some research and try again. Also on this note I’m done with roosters. Thus the first butchering already.

Here’s an embarrassing picture to prove it. The water was freezing on the chicken as I was cleaning it. There were probably better days I could have chosen. In other news, I still have all 10 fingers despite the extra sharp knife and the bitter freezing cold water on my hands. Yeah for inhibiting growth of bacteria!

3. Learn more about firearms and practice shooting them. This is a messed up world and I have 2nd Amendment rights.  I plan to use them. Besides, who doesn’t love shooting cans and zombie posters?

4. Love my children and soak up every possible moment while they are at these fun and tender ages.. This usually means my house will be dirty (so get used to it!).

5. Get some investment crops in the ground. I’m looking for asparagus, more strawberries, blueberries and a few apple trees. I hope I have a budget for this come spring!

6. Save money to buy plants. (a last minute addition)

7. Continue to keep God at the center of our home. I don’t know about you, but this one can always use a little improvement. Family comes first and I am lucky to have a job and friends who not only agree but support the principles of my family. My kids currently go to christian school, but some lessons are taught by mom and dad as their role models. I strive to be the role model that I should be.

8. Make small improvements to my family’s health and eating habits. I’m raising little cavemen and women and we’re slowly re-training our brains to not need processed foods. Its a daily struggle, but one that’s worth fighting for.
