My Ten Comandments for 2009

I’m keeping it simple for next year, these are My Ten Comandments for 2009.   

1. Get more exercise: OK This is on my list every year since high school but next year I will add a dance class or trip to my neighborhood gym at least twice a week to coincide with my in home work outs.  I think the combination of getting out to be with other people and exercising will do me much good in 09.09_11_2-fruit-and-vegtables_web1

2. Give Thanks: There are a few people in my sphere that are devout referrers I will say big Thank yous to these sincere people that thoughtfully pass on my name to those looking to buy or sell in Hampton Roads.

3. Watch what I eat and feed my family:  I have always looked out for myself but I do not often police my families eating habits.  I will buy more fruit and replace the junk food in the cabinets with healthy snacks.  And my girls will be forced to eat more veggies this year. Except for the holidays, birthdays, and occasional big Sunday meal My family is going on a meal makeover like it or not.  

4. Social Time: I have a great group of friends that I will vow to hang out with much more.  I am not a social phone talker but I will try to keep in touch with my girlfriends more.

5. Romance: I will make time for my husband and find many fun activities that will bring us together.09_25_53_thumb

6. Business Plan: I will follow my 08 business plan and tweak the areas that were weak and get stronger with the areas that work.

7. Advertising and Marketing:  I will cut what doesn’t work and is a waste of money and focus my efforts on the areas that yield the greatest return for the dollar.

8. Family:  I vow to spend more time with my kids and do a variety of fun activities and be on them like white on rice when it comes to school work and behavior.

9. Blog: I promise to Blog and entertain social networking like a crazy person. You will fine me on all the favorites tweeting, poking, blogging, and posting.

10. Dont forget to Rest and take a breath:  I will take time off, take time to relax, and sleep.
