2009 Resolutions

Most years I don't even make any because I'm pretty sure I wont keep them. But this year is different.

I'm makin some and keepin 'em.

Here are some of my 2009 resolutions


  • Exercise at least 3 days a week - preferably more than that, but I'm being realistic.
  • Iron all of Jaren's church shirts - because i don't think i've had all of them ironed at one time for all of 2008
  • Read my scriptures every day - i was soo good at this from ages 14 to 20 then i got married and my routines changed.
  • Have a baby before December 31st - i think i can i think i can
  • clean bathrooms once a week - again, a routine i need to invent and get into the habit of keeping
A few of these will be easy and the rest will take some effort. I should take it a week at a time and not think of a whole year of exercising 3 - 5 days a week, cleaning bathrooms 4 times a month and ironing shirts all the time.

I think I can, I think I can!

I am scared to make any resolutions YIKES!! You are so good!Good luck with all of that!

CaJoh said...

Those sound like achievable goals. I think you should do great with the exercising since you got your cool treadmill.

Good luck.

You iron his shirts? He is one lucky man. I make Adam wash his own clothes. And maybe mine. It's good for him.

Jessica said...

Hang on. In order to have a baby before December 31st, you'd have to be pregnant by the end of March. At the latest... That's in less than three months. And did I miss the announcement that Jaren was ready?

Jo said...

OH I so want you to keep the baby resolution. I can't wait to see the belly pics! Good luck with that one, and don't forget, you have lots of people to go to for advice, should you need any on babymaking! ha ha! As for the rest of the resolutions, I KNOW you can!

Whitney R said...

Jessica - I thought someone might do the math. Were not pregnant, but I realize the time frame. Jaren is a lot more ready than he was 3 weeks ago. I'm just ready!!

Whitney R said...

Oh yeah, Ashley - if only we could move a couple of thousand acre's to Utah. haha

hello, my name is amber. said...

you better get busy on the baby making! literally.

Amy said...

Whitney R said...

Amy - you have no idea

Amber - no comment

The Boob Nazi said...

Have a baby? You're crazy!!!! And I'm not going to be creepy and say get on it or anything haha.

Whitney R said...

Julie - not crazy! Been married almost 2 years, graduating in April, here in Rexburg forever, he's done with school, I'll be done with school... what's next? Besides, I'm super hungry.

Mary said...

Good luck on satisfying your thirst. At least it is fun to practice ;o)

Wendyburd1 said...

I am too chicken to make resolutions! Those are great though, I will bow to your greatness if you can do what I still can't, excercise every week, multiple times too!! I am so weak!
How many church shirts does Jaren have? I get so bored ironing and if he had more than 4 or 5...yeah it'd never be done by me.

Oh if only my bathroom was cleaned every WEEK! I am such a germophobe so it is NOT my job (thank goodness) but it is LUCKY if it happens once a month! YUCKKKKK! If I only had my OWN bathroom it would be so immaculate!

Whitney R said...

Wendy - he has at least 10.

Mommy Madness said...

Wow, ironing shirts! That would be a hard one for me. Great resolutions! Good luck especially with the baby one. ♥

Strawberry Shortcake said...

Those sound like great goals! I think I will copy you (except for the ironing of the shirts. I do that every weekday for the hubby and now I hate the iron. We have a hate/hate relationship ;)

The Boyce's said...

Wow, those sound like great resolutions! I know you can keep every one of them! You'll just have to keep us updated on how each goal is going! :)

Jillene said...

I DON'T iron Matt's anything. I am a horrible wife.

I SOOOOOO want you to get preggers ASAP!! Have fun trying!!

Mina said...

Awesome. Good luck with your goals. They sound like the kind I make. I never even make it a week, though. Hopefully you're better at routines than I am.

Erin said...

Hey, I used to read my scriptures every day my teenage years, and then I got married, and it went down the tubes.

Good luck with your resolutions!

Randy, Capri, and Wyatt said...

Kayleigh said...

I'm with ya on the scriptures thing...man, I'm bad at that.

Sara Ann said...

I hope you can keep all of your resolutions, I stopped making them because I never keep them. Except this year my resolution is also to have a baby by Dec 31st, yay!

the letter Bee said...

You "iron"? What's an "iron"????

Brigitte said...

It's like you've read my mind! Those goals look a lot like mine. Except I gave up ironing a long time ago so we've resorted to paying someone to do that for us. Pathetic huh?! If only I had the money to pay for someone to clean my toilets!!

Danger Cat said...

Whit, I made a resolution years ago that I've kept ever since, to not make any more resolutions, Such freedom! LOL

Victoria Elder said...

I'm back! GOOD resolutions! Ah I am still working on making my resolutions i am a little scared lol

littlefamilyJLD said...

Great resolutions. Best of luck in 2009!

Tiffany Fackrell said...

so I ironed all of David's shirts the other day,(for the first time, i am a bad wife and usually make him iron his own) thinking of you the whole time, oh man 3 hours later i was so SICK of ironing...i hope he doesn't think that will be a regular occurance. But good luck to you, some people love to iron. good resolutions though, good luck!

Bonnie the Boss said...

You were lost but now you are found! I am so glad.

Misti said...

Those are great resolutions! Mine were similar, sort of. Ok, only the baby thing, and that happened already! I don't iron Mike's shirts, I just take the out of the dryer, shake, and hang. That's as good as it gets. The bathroom thing is good. Maybe I'll steal that from you...

Jordan and Michaela Spence said...

You are so funny! Have a baby by the end of the year huh? I have the same goal. I'll cross my fingers for you haha. And maybe if you exercise Mon Wed Fri, and count the pushups we have to do in 410 on Tues and Thurs as exercise, you can exceed your goal of 3 days and make it 5! :)

B and B said...

I like your baby resolution...but you might want to check and make sure that is one Jaren's resolution list also..haha!!
