How YOU Doin'?

So here we are smack dab in the middle of 2009. Time for a little accountability. How are you doing on your resolutions for this year? Do you even remember what they are? Vaguely? Hopefully, you have great progress to report. Me, not so much.

I've been feeling the guilt lately as my blog header states that this blog's purpose is to document my journey toward a more peaceful and happier home. Huh. Haven't been doin' none o' that.

Perhaps it's time to start. No more procrastinating the creation of my more beautiful and happier home! Won't you join me? I special ordered this book at one of my favorite bookstores Latter-Day Books in Tooele, Utah USA. But it is also available at Deseret Book and Seagull Book and probably many other fine booksellers.

This great book that is a workbook of sorts entitled Walking Into a Hug: 52 Weeks to a Home That's More Embracing by Janene Eustach. Each week for 52 weeks the author issues a challenge to follow for the week and a journal page to record how the week went and what changes you noticed.

I am hoping you will join me in broadening your parenting skills. Each week I will post a suggested goal and hope to see lots of comments about what happens when you implement the suggestion. Here's to improving our families! Tune in tomorrow for the first installment...........
