Happy New Year! My resolutions...

(not my dachshunds, but too cute a pic to pass up!)

I want to wish all my friends, family and loyal readers a wonderful 2009. 2008 was a great year for me, BM, and LM. Personally, I have accomplished a lot this year of which I am proud. I began jogging, ran my first 10k, lost over 25 pounds, finally had an adult Bat Mitzvah (since I never had one as a girl), made lots of new friends (in real life and in the blog-o-shere :). Also, Big Monkey and I have had a great year watching Little Monkey grow into a toddler. We will be celebrating our 8th anniversary next week and I look forward to countless more years together.

As the new year approached, of course, I had to make some resolutions. Here's what I will work toward in 2009:

*I want to lose 15 more pounds and be able to maintain it.
*I have a tendency to procrastinate and I really want to work on not doing that. We will see. This is something that will be very hard for me.
*I want to make an effort to call my Grandparents weekly.
*I would like to organize our house. It is a small two-bedroom, but I think we could really enjoy it if space was utilized better.
*I would like BM and I to make more of an effort to have at least one "date night" a month. It can be pricey but I think it is important.

So, what are yours?

Your anniversary is this week, too? Our 9th is tomorrow (on the 8th).

Date nights are SO important. Even just taking a picnic to the park or getting a coffee.

And make a rule for yourself: no kids or house talk! Flirt outrageously, too.

For a long time we did this and once we had put aside money for the babysitter there was none left for the date! But we still managed to have a lot of fun. Ahem. That I can't tell you about.
