I love the start of a new year. I love the feeling of freshness, newness, and starting over. I love having the opportunity to set new goals (and trying really hard to achieve them). It does, however, make me a little sad that the years are going by much more quickly the older I get. Anyway, I'd like to take this opportunity to jot down a few of the big things I'd like accomplish this year.

1. Buy a House: Now, any of you have been following my life for any amount of time know that I was a homeowner before George and I got married. When we tied the knot I signed my half of the mortgage over to Mr. B. Sometimes I miss that little condo, but I am so grateful that we chose to live in the apartment we did. We have made some fabulous, life long friends in our ward and will miss it when we go. As for finding a house, we have been looking for quite some time and have found a few that we really like. We'll see what happens when we get closer to the end of our lease.

2. Go Back to School: I've been planning on doing this one for awhile. So far, I have been content in my education level and in my career path. However, if I ever hope to further my career, explore other avenues, etc, I'm going to need a Bachelor's Degree. So, at some point this year I will hopefully be returning to school for my BSN.

3. Write a Book: I've been kicking around the idea of writing a book for awhile now. I've begun to brainstorm ideas, develop some characters, and think out a basic plot line. I highly doubt I will finish this one this year, but I plan on getting a good start on my debut novel.

4. Become a Mom: Honestly, this is the one I'm most excited about. Curious George and I have decided that it's time to bring another little dude or dudette into our home. We are going to start trying for a baby. I'm not going to stress about it, I know that Heavenly Father will bless us with children when it's time for us to have them. I'm just happy to be in this point in our lives. I like to think that I won't announce until I'm 8-10 weeks along, but the truth is that I can't keep a secret to save my life... so you will all probably know very early on.

I hope that 2010 brings great things to your home as well. What is something you hope to accomplish this year?
