Word Of The Year!

I have chosen the word.......
Wait for it....
Simplify!
*    my life    *
my undertakings {Craft Projects, Work, Anything not focused on my family}
the house {Getting rid of all the clutter, and keeping it out!}
stress levels {try to alleviate some of my stress by not bringing it on myself}
my goals {so I don't fail all of them, but maybe succeed in one or two.}
parties? {this one is still questionable!}
money issue's {Trying not to spend as much, and sticking to our budget}
Basically by simplifying all the activities and stresses I have outside the home, it will 
hopefully make my life within the home more of a priority.
Does that make sense?  
Oh well, it does to me!
What is your focus this year?

getting back to the basics by simplification can be nothing but good. i can't wait to see how it goes.

this year i want to "do." i spend too much time in my head, i want to get outside of the introspection more.

here's to 09!

My word for this year is "enjoy".
Hey, have you ever read the book "SIMPLIFY-A Guide to Caring for the Soul"? It's by Carolyn J. Rasmus. You can get it through Deseret Book. It's really good. Here's a peak:
S-Stillness
I-Integrity
M-Mercy
P-Prune
L-Let Go
I-Impossible
F-Fortify
Y-You
Anyway, might be a good way to start your new year!!

I love the idea of simplifying. I am constantly trying to simplify life and it is wonderful. Except I never plan fabulous parties like you do. My word for the year is "cherish", as in cherish every moment, because life is going by too quickly!

Oh this is a good one for you....but I don't think you can do it on the parties! :) Even if you do they would still be the most spectacular parites ever!!! my word is RELAX....I love this idea! :)
