Our resolutions 2008

We are going to try to eat healthier. Elliot is the cook in our house and has found a lot of tasty healthy recipes that he has been preparing for us for the last 2 weeks. He is such a good cook. Thanks goodness because I think we all know that I am not meant to be in the kitchen.


He made this delicious shrimp and orzo meal the other night. Delicious.


We are trying to exercise more. Neither of us are big into any particular type of exercise so we have started out just walking a mile every night after dinner. It is actually really nice to have that time together without any other distractions so we can just hang out and talk while we walk. Maybe after we get walking down I might start doing something more strenuous and use the Ipod Elliot got me for my b-day last year that I just HAD to have because I was "totally going to start running every day if only I had an Ipod." Yeah, lets just say that the Ipod has been a great paperweight for the last year.
Elliot's resolutions are to study for the GMAT so he is prepared to take it by the time he graduates ,
and to read one finance book each month.
I want to try to relearn how to play the piano. I'm so sad I gave it up.
We want to try to "go green " a little bit. Bring a little bit of Oregon to Georgia. We are going to start a compost in the back yard as well as build a green house to grow plants and herbs. (such as basil. We aren't bringing all of Oregon with us.)
Elliot put together this recycling station in our garage. It is crazy how much we have been throwing away.
Go to the temple once a month.


And last of all, we want to fix our poor little vespa that is excited to move out of the garage and onto the road.We will see if we follow through with all of our goals. I am already craving some french fries.....

sound like some good goals....but can elliot really read 1 finance book a month? I think I would want to poke out my eyes after the first few pages....seems painful. And why is compost something you want to bring from Oregon? Should smell really good in your backyard on those hot and sticky Georgia days.... :-)

I enjoy the visual aides...it makes it much easier to understand...plus it's pretty and it makes you put actual pictures up, yay.

If I were to take one thing from Oregon and implament it elsewhere it would so not be compost....I mean did you ever have compost duty as a child. Seriously I think Jackie can back me up on this one...unless you want to spend the year dry heaving as you take out the compost you should make it your resolution to save money for a garbage disposal!! Best investment my parents ever made, at least as far as the kids are concerned. Way to go on the recycling and good luck on your other goals.

Those are some pretty awesome goals. I should copy and paste most of them and make them mine...except for the compost pile one....I can just see Ryder now...mommy, look, I just jumped in the crap pile outside!! Good luck guys!! And that shrimp orzo is making me hungry. Elliot, when are you going to cook for me????
