Give Me 5 Monday - Hopes

Becca over at BeccA's Buzz has started a new meme. Here's what it's all about:

The 'Give Me Five' Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here's how it works. Each week, I will put out a random topic from my list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back here! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn't have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified.

The topic of today's list is - give me 5 hopes or goals you have for the new year.
  1. I hope to get caught up! In everything - blogging, cleaning, organizing - all of it! I should probably make that a goal instead of a hope, otherwise it probably won't happen.
  2. I hope my sweet, wonderful daughter can let that sweet wonderful side of herself show more often. Why is it so hard being a teenager? I don't remember it being so hard. Hopefully this year she will get past that.
  3. I hope my wonderful husband sticks with his new plan to eat sensibly and that he starts an exercise program of some kind - more than the couple hours of basketball once a week that he started tonight. I'll enjoy having less of him around.
  4. I want to keep a list of all the books I read - because I have some friends who do, and I really love it. I wish I had thought of that way back when I started reading. I don't have to write a detailed book report or review of them, but just the list will be nice, and probably a notation whether I liked the book or not.
  5. and I hope to get to know all my new blogging real friends even more this year!
Check out more Give Me 5 Monday lists here.


  1. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better this year too! Good luck with your list - somehow it helps to write it all down like this doesn't it... :)

  2. I love love love your #3, " I'll enjoy having less of him around" Bah!!!! Too funny!
    The book list is a great idea for me since I am just starting to get into reading more!!! I can keep a nice list going, thanks for the idea! ;)
    Getting caught up in everything would be great!!!
    Thanks for participating in the GM5 this week :)

  3. That's a really good list! I also really hope for #3 for my husband! At least yours is getting those couple of hours a week! LOL! The most mine gets is when he takes the trash barrels to the end of our driveway! LOL! Granted, the driveway is over 330 ft, still, it's not enough to help with weight loss! :)

    Oh...and I was a really horrid girl as a teenager...emotions all over the place! Hang in there! It does eventually get better and having a mom that hangs in there through it is a huge gift to your daughter (and a true badge of courage for you!) LOL! Small consolation I know...but it will get better! :)

  4. GREAT list! I really like the idea of keeping a list of the books I've read. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better this year too ;-)

  5. Hi Anna! Got here through Give Me 5 Monday!

    I wish that what you hope for do come true! I share your first one about hoping to get caught up. :)


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
