HAPPY NEW YEAR-Across The World!!!

Tolling of the bell in MOSCOW:

New Year's Eve, or Noivy God as it is in Russian, is celebrated by gathering in the Red Square to await the tolling of the Saviour clocktower, As New Year arrives, people take to the streets and go calling on friends and neighbours, celebrating until dawn arrives.

I wanted to write a quick post, because it's been WAY TOO LONG.  But I must be short for now, I'll be back to update on what I've been up to.  Life is Fabulous! (No, I didn't go to Russia, not yet anyway...)

So.... if you DARE, please leave a post of 1 or all your new year resolution/s.

In the past I haven't been big on setting new year's resolutions, but this year I'm setting two. One for myself and then Nate and I are also setting one together. First - I want to work on my patience. I have found in the last while that I have been getting frustrated easy at the boys and I don't want to be that way. I want to be more calm when things are out of control and not yell as much. 2nd -Nate and I decided we wanted to start building up our savings account better so we redefined our budget and cut out some of the unneccesary stuff. I'm excited for the challenge.

"WE" on the other hand are in Russia,but with a house full of company we chose to stay at home, maybe next year. I haven't been able to come up with any new resolutions. Not that I'm perfect or anything ;o) I have many things I started last year that I just want to continue: work on Excel, study the Russian language, make bread and Ragady Ann & Andy dolls for my 5 favorite grandchildren. All of these will take awhile, don't you think.
And to all a successful 2009 sly me

Russia, not yet, when?
New Years Resolutions are big at our house. We love to make them. Keeping them is a whole other story.
Organization is at the top of the list for me. I'm really going to concentrate on this and maybe this will be my year to actually keep my Resolution.

Its so good to her that you guys are doing good. For my New years resolution. I decided to make our lives as a family better. By Exercising Faith, Hope, and Charity. Its the best way to some it up quick and easy. I hope that I can follow through.

I was going to make the goal to not lose my patience with the boys, but since I already lost it before I could even make the goal I decided that might be a bit lofty! So how about try not to lose it more than say 50 times per day? Heather
