Happy NEW YEAR!!!

I've decided to make some things important in 2007. Along with my goal to look 'presentable' when veturing outside of the confines of my homestead, I'm adding a few more personal goals and blog features including:

* Challenge Wednesday will be in full effect - you might remember it from several posts ago. An abitious goal I made just before traveling for 3 weeks and the end-of-year festivities. In the new year, this will become a regular feature.

* Santa Barbara Saturdays. This will be a post highlighting our favorite Santa Barbara activities or places or people even. Look for restaurant reviews, family-friendly adventures, little-known spots of interest, and much much more! To be clear, they will not always be things done on Saturdays - that is just when I'll make a habit of posting.

* Elenore Roosevelt famously said "Do one thing every day that scares you." In theory, this is great but I'm not sure I can fully grasp it on a daily basis. Not immediately anyway. However, I love the idea of pushing myself to do things that I don't think I can normally do! Therefore, once a month, I and a few others (I hope) will write about what they have done "today" that scares them. I'm so amped on this idea!

* My Cup is Empty. In his Rich Dad series, Robert Kiyosaki talks about entrepreneurs needing to be eager to learn. Always learning. They need to never be a specialist but remain a generalists (like my Sweetie). He said that people who 'know everything' have a full cup and the goal is to keep your cup empty. My goal is to learn more...from the mudane (did some research on Kwanzaa recently and was blown away by what I found) to the major (global warming, anyone?). These posts might be lame to you geniuses but it'll keep me learning. And might even make me more interesting too!

Whew. I've got lots of business to get to! Really looking forward to the new year and what God has in store for us. Happy New Year!
