Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Merry New Year and Happy Belated Christmas

Good morning blogging people! Its 5am and I am back at work from the holidays. I am saddenned that a family I have really grown to love is still here. I soo wanted them home for the holiday. But what a spirit my favorite patient has. I wish I had time to play chess tonight or to at least learn, next time!

So, I am going to list my new year resolutions. I wanted this to be my Thursday 13 tomorrow but that will be more specific!


1)Lose at least 50 pounds. I do not talk about my weight or any other weakness. Typing this is a big deal. Perhaps it will make me do something more about it. By losing weight, I will become healthier

2)Make more time for quiet time with God. Seriously, 2 hours on the internet and I dont give Him 20 minutes? What is wrong with me.

3)Get rid of everything I dont need. Im talking clothes that are multiple sizes too small, collectables..I need to donate to others this year.

4)Be a better wife. Im not admitting I am a bad one. I want my actions to show how much I love my Michael. I want to make his life easier. I dont let him know how much I really appreciate him at times. Its in my mind, but I need to be a better support for him

5)Become less selfish. When I whine about not getting my way, I want to think about others who dont have has much as me

6)enjoy every moment of family time when we get it. I love my nieces and nephews and want to spend some quality time with them. All 4 are at a good age right now

7)Get involved in a church..uhm...enough said

8)Get logged in to the China database and begin the wait!

9)Stop spending money on things I really dont need

I could go on but I just want to become better. A better person that I! I want to put others first all of the time. I have learned more from the parents of my patients then my multiple years in college and for this I am grateful.

Okay, thats really all i have to say about that!

Those are wonderful goals to have...I know what I have taking my Sweetheart for granted many years - no more! I have been telling him how much I respect and love him on a daily bases. I have to think of my own goals for 2007 - more time with God is on the top of my list too...

Happy New Year.


It is really sad to know that those didn't make the holidays at home. You do have a big heart.
Thanks for stopping by.

Such great goals! I wish you the best, especially with #1 -- been there, done that myself.

I just finished posting about my *2006* goals -- my 2007 ones will be coming up soon.

That's an honest, sincere list, Amy.

I think you need a list for Lucy to follow, too!
