Update: Month 1

It's February, and not only does that mean an upsurge in my intake of chocolate, but it also means I'm looking at one month into my New Year's Resolutions.  So I'm going to take a moment to go through them, explain how I'm doing, and how I need to improve. 1. Lose some weight.  I go up and down with this one, which is to be expected, however I am happy to say that I am down approx. 6 pounds!  In order to continue, here's what I need to work on: I'm pretty good during the week with my diet and exercise, but I fall apart on the weekends.  I need to learn how to indulge in moderation.  Is that an oxymoron?

2. Couples devotions daily. Again, this one has gone in waves.  We do them several days in a row, then miss several days in a row.  Recently, we've been in a missing stage.  We need to pick this up again.

3. Listening to Bible on CD. Waves. Again. However, I did finish the first CD (most of Matthew) and I'm on the second.  I must admit though, that my mind tends to wander a lot while on my way home from work, so I'm hoping that I'm absorbing the Words through osmosis. 

4. Be a better mom. Let's see.  This is a tricky one.  I have been making more of an effort to keep the apartment clean and tidy.  I've been good about planning dinners.  But that's it.  I haven't been reading more.  I haven't cut down on my TV watching. 

So that about wraps it up.  I'm hoping that if I continue updating every month, I will continue to keep trying.  And what more can I do than try?
