  1. A good list of resolutions. It may be hard to get them all. A step at a time works well. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. I need to quit smoking, too. Thanks for dropping by mine 🙂

  3. Good luck with your resolutions! I hope you have success with them.

  4. Getting the house organized sounds like a great resolution. I need to do that …think it will help keep the house clean? That’s what I really need to do is keep the house clean.

    My 13 are up. I moved my blog so this is my first 13 in my new digs.

  5. HI Becky! Good luck with your new year’s resolutions! My personal mantra might help =) “Failure will not overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” Happy New Year!

  6. Thursday Thirteen: Where’s the Garden of Eden Located?


    And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden . . . And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compassed the whole land of Havil…

  7. Thanks for stopping by my TT!!

    You should read The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands and then The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage. 🙂 I need to re-read them. I’m not being a very nice wife right now. We are under a lot of stress and you know…how it can get. Anyhoo…

    When you start reading the Bible, you might want to follow one of those read the Bible in a year plans. They didn’t do me any good (because I can’t always read as much as it says to read) but I know a lot of people that use them.

  8. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my TT!

    Last year I hired a Personal Organizer. It was totally worth the money! If you can’t afford one, I would see if you can’t get a friend to help you, but be sure the friend can be stubborn and firm with you. It’s not just about organizing, it’s about getting rid of what you don’t need — purging. It was really great because once I got rid of the things I didn’t use and didn’t need, then there was a place for everything and space for me. I felt like I could breathe.

    And keeping your house clean really is so much easier when everything has it’s own place and can be put away.

    Good luck on you resolutions!

  9. Good luck with all your resolutions – especially the quitting smoking one.
