The new year is approaching quite quickly and I have yet to set any resolutions for the coming year.Things I would like to accomplish and work towards:

1. Have a closer relationship with God. It is something I have struggled with recently, not because of any reason besides just feeling disconnected. I would like to personally commit to spending more time in the word, on a hopefully daily basis, but any additional time I spend in it would be great.

2. Have an exercise regime. I would really like to exercise more and find exercise I enjoy. I like to run but right now I feel so big and heavy that it is hard. I found that I actually like doing the eliptical so in the coming year I would like to exercise more so I can feel like a more fit and healthy person.

3. Better eating habits. I have horrible eating habits and I would really like to gain better control over what I eat and not letting food control my life. I would like to find a balance between eating what I want to eat and eating what is proper.

4. Get debt free. I do not know if this is actually possible for us this year, but I'm going to try really hard. Currently we put an additional $600 a month into debt after minimum due and we are big Dave Ramsey fans. I would really like to be debt free (except the house) by the end of 2010.

I think 4 is a good number to end at. Who knows what I will want to add as the year continues!

What My Wife Is to Me a Poem by Joseph

Posted on 9:37 PM In: ,
A poem by Joseph:

She’s a snuggle at night, and small kiss as morning starts
She’s a “Hi” after a lengthy nap, and a morning shopping trip to wal-mart
She’s my home maker but not my home cleaner
She’s my rock and my shield when I couldn’t get much meaner
She’s the Pet lover but only when she wants to be
She’s the Person that I can’t wait to wake up to see.
She’s the Emo girl that is so far from it.
She’s the Computer Nerd that she’d never admit
She’s my better half and the one that makes me be a better me
She’s my shopping partner and loves to wear my men’s tee
She has the knees I want to hold as we sit by the lake
She holds every part of me, and my heart is hers to take.
She’s got messy hair in the morning that I love so much
She’s got a presence about her that when we’re in bed I just have to touch
She was there for me in my weakest time, when she had to carry me on her back
She’s held me together more times than I can count and never felt the need to pack
She’s thinks I’m cute even when I’m fat and hairy
She likes to hit me and “flail about” when my driving gets to scary.
She’s my country music fan, even though it’s not what she would choose
She laughs at me… but makes me feel better when the Braves lose
She understands me to the best she can,
She understands that time she doesn’t understand…it’s just because I’m being a man.
She loves me when I cry in theater
She loves me even if I don’t treat her the way I should treat her
What is my wife to me?
She’s more than I could list in a given day
And even if it’s a movie quote
She completes me in every way.
