A year of expectation

My bad about yesterday folks. TheCount and I were both at home because he was ill. He did a fine job of throwing up in his coworkers car. She is a better woman than I am because I would have tied him to the roof for the remainder of the trip. Anyway.....What are you going to do different in 2009? Not necessarily a New Year's Resolution, but something in your life you need to change so you can be a better you? In our house we write the vision. We like to know what we are working toward and believing God for. Our dreams are lofty, always have been, always will be. We write down what we want to accomplish, what we want to acquire, what we hope to do. I'm going to post our list in our bedroom and on our refrigerator as a constant reminder. Here is TheCount and my list of:
We'll be fine in '09 (that's the highlight of my creativity, if you have a better name, plese submit it so we can post it on our fridge!
We hope to accomplish:
1. A healthier lifestyle. Which includes eating right and excercising. I have to get this body ready to birth some babies in a few years and I want TheCount to be around for years to come! {BTW somebody is having serious opposition to this vegetarian thing, lol. We'll talk it out and come to a mutually happy decision}
2. Pay off our school loans. We don't have a ton of debt, thanks to our generous parents, but I want the loans gone! I refuse to spend the next 10 years writing checks to Sallie Mae, Citibank, and Wells Fargo. If anybody has an extra $10,000 lying around, pass it on over here please!
3. A new job for TheCount. He is not feeling this job so much because of what they pay and what they expect you to do. It really is quite interesting how they forgot that little conversation about pay increase after 90 days. I want him to get a new job because I don't like him having to go into dirty apartments every day brining their filth into our home. He came home one day and asked for my bug spray to spray down his work stuff before he got in the house because his partner saw a roach crawl in his bag! He also told me about opening a closet door in an apartment and having 2 mice staring back at him. GROSS! I was like, "baby, you are one strong dude because I would have stripped naked and walked right out and drove myself home leaving everything behind in that den of filth."
4. New vehicles. TheCount drives a 96 Altima that loves to go to the shop! I have an 02 Saturn that has treated me pretty well but we are prepping for the future and I can't be birthing no babies trying to climb in and out of my tiny car, it's a struggle getting me and my purse out now! I would like a Saturn Outlook in dark blue, with black leather interior, heated seats, automatic start, and a GPS system installed (if you have one of those just sitting around, send it my way). I'm not sure what TheCount wants specifically, but I'll get that information before we put our list up.
5. To do a daily Bible Study together. I do my study when I get to work in the morning because I know nobody will bother me until after 12. TheCount does his Bible study before bed or sometimes in bed. I can't tell you how many times I woke up hollering "what are you over there talking about?" only to realize he was praying, lol.
Now it's your turn! Write down what you expect to accomplish this year. If you've already done a post on it, leave your link here so we can check you out!
