A new year

A new year and a new day. Mike and I have decided that this year instead of setting goals we are going to review our priorities and to build on what we have already started in our lives. We haven't had time to sit down and finish the list but a few of the things that we know for sure we want to continue growing in is food storage, health and spirit.

Food storage is something that we have always been involved in but this year we are going to add to it by expanding our skill set and also teaching others. We also realized that we have a year supply but no 72 hour kits. That was an odd discovery.

Mike and I have been working in our health for the past two years and this year we are wanting to train for the little rock color run next fall. It is not a huge race but it seems doable for two big people like us and it also looks really fun.

Every year mike and I discuss where in our spiritual lives and the family we are weak and we focus on that for the year until it becomes a habit. This year it is family home evenings. We have one currently about once or twice a month and it is barely organized. We want to make this a family habit and tradition enforce the kids get older and lose interest in doing things as a family.

We are also wanting to look at the priorities in our lives and make sure that we are still pointed in the direction that we as a couple and family want to go. We seem to be low on time, money and energy so obviously we need to see where it is all going and readjust where needed. I don't think that I can get out of the time being called as relief society president takes up but I can cut back on how much tv I watch. Hopefully, we can get through this safe and still madly in love. Happy new year!

Great goals, Desiree! You guys are SO good at food storage and such a great example to us! That is something we really need to work on as well. We're also reexamining how we can make our lives less stressful this year so we can have more peace and less chaos in our lives.
