3 of 52!

If you've been following me, then you know that this year I am following along with Mara, making a new set of resolutions each week! By the end of the year I will have had 52 weeks of accomplishment. Last week my goals were simple. Finish the second book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and relax because it's my last week of not working! I had a PERFECT week. I slept in each morning, I relaxed on the couch with a cup of coffee in the mornings, and I did in fact finish that book. It was perfect! So far I love having small goals, because it keeps me motivated and lets me take it one week at a time. This week is a big one. It's my first week at my new job and my last week before I start traveling and have to spend time away from my husband and babies. It's bittersweet. It's also going to be one of the last few weeks of stress and money issues, and the time my husband and I do get will be more quality than quantity. Overall i'm so excited to start everything, and it all begins with this weeks resolutions!
Week 3
1. To be ready to go each morning with a smile, a cup of coffee and a lot of enthusiasm! I will be early to all of my meetings and arrive everywhere with a smile (and a notepad to take notes!)
2. To spend as much time as possible with my husband and my puppies.
3. To try out some new furniture arrangements that we have been talking about, and give the house a good cleaning from top to bottom. 
4. To finish the 3rd Lord of the Rings book (i'm 65% there!) and start up a new series. Something light-hearted... I'm thinking the Janet Evanovich series....

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!
