We are pretty boring

We have had a fairly nice, not too interesting month. I survived the first week of intense dieting, no chocolate all week long. I am craving something sweet but am determined to stick to the plan. I have been exercising all week, too.

The snow just keeps piling up and Steve is snow shoveling addict. He shovels even when it is still snowing. He is crazy! He is the joke of the neighborhood because he even shovels the street. I appreciate his hard work and he was in heaven when I told him one of the preschool kids asked me how my driveway is always so clear. It is snowing again so he will be shoveling again tomorrow.

We went the BYU basketball game Saturday night against San Diego. It was a great game and BYU won! BYU was ahead the whole game but at the end they almost gave it away. We stayed almost until the bitter end. It was fun and we got to spend some time with Linda and Mark. We didn't get any of the royal treatments Krista and Chris got because we were way up in the nose bleeds but we still had fun. Darn, I am getting old, I have forgotten the BYU fight song. Oh, well, it was fun to try to remember the words. Go BYU!!!!

New Year's Resolutions!

We went to Vegas the day after Christmas and enjoyed the wonderful warm weather there. We had fun visiting with relatives and lots of old friends. If we didn't get to see you, we ran out of time. We rang in the New Year with everyone playing Rock Band, they even got me to sing a few songs, playing games, and eating lots and lots of junk. We had a great time and reluctantly returned to the "Frozen Tundra" on Traverse Mountain. It was good to get home even though it has been extremely cold, BRRRRR!!!!

Now that we are home it is time to start thinking about all those New Year's Resolutions that I should write down but usually don't take the time to do it. That is probably why they usually don't get accomplished. I will start with my most and foremost resolution. I want to get healthier this year and so am going to try to exercise every day and eat better, hoping that I will lose that extra 50 pounds that I have been carrying around. That is my number one goal. One day down and I did pretty good. Now I need to try not to eat anything else today!

I also want to try to get into a better routine at reading my scriptures and reading the Ensign, personal prayers and maybe even take up journal writing. Those are all the goals that I usually have every year. Another one for this year is to get more organized and weed out some of the "stuff" that I have been hanging on to for way too long. I know, I know, a lot of you already think that I am pretty organized but, hey, how can I stay organized if I don't keep setting those kinds of goals. I also would like to get my scrapbooking for my Alaska trip and my China trip done. Well, those are a few of the goals I have. I would like to include another trip to somewhere exotic but I think our finances need to recover for a few years.

Good luck to all of you with all your New Year's Resolutions and maybe, just maybe at the end of the year, I will let you know how I did.
