2 of 52!

Last monday I decided to follow along with Mara, posting a different goal/resolution each week for the entire year. 52 resolutions in all! Last week I had 3, including hitting my Zumba class a few times and rocking my interview! Well done, and done! I got the job and last week was an amazing week!
So now I sit here, on monday again. A week has passed and right now as I look outside the world looks fresh and new... The 10" of snow that fell overnight definitely help matters! As the snow is softly falling outside, I am in a wonderful world.  I have the beginnings of a delicious stew simmering away on the stove top, I'm enjoying some wonderful girl scout cookies (Shout-outs) with my delicious morning coffee and watching the last season of Dexter with my hubby. Life is beautiful right now.
The view out my window as I sit here typing... beautiful...
Snow just has a way of making the world feel beautiful. All the dirt and grime are blanketed in pure white, creating a beautiful serene view. I just love it...as long as I don't have to go out in it! The perfect setting for my last week of not working. 
My goals this week, aren't about losing weight, they aren't about getting big project done... all I want this week is to spend time with my family and love myself. Here I go....are you ready for this?!

Week 2
1. To relax, enjoy time with my husband and relax as I prepare for the craziness of starting work next week!
2. To finish reading, Lord of the Rings The Two Towers. I'm about 50% of the way through and it will be book #2 of the 40 I want to read this year!
3. To figure out Mint.com! I think it's going to end up being an amazing tool for me once my paychecks start rolling in, and i'm really excited to start using it...even if my finances at the moment are a little scary to look at!

What are your goals for this week? 
I think this is going to shape up to be an AMAZING year, one week at a time!

After much advice I signed up for mint.com too though I'm still trying to figure it all out. Good luck on this week's goals.
