    In my little family we made a comprehensive list for the new year including
    relationship goals with specific people
    people we want to see more of this year
    things we want to purchase which might really enrich our lives (me: chain saw, bath tub. Boy: trampoline, puppy)

    We also chose words to focus on for the year. Ours are Happy and Healthy. We want to laugh more, move more, eat more plants.

    What word(s) do you want to define 2012?

    I won't curse myself by enumerating the things that I have going well right now, but I'll say that I feel very lucky and would like the ship to stay going in this direction.

    I'm making an effort to do more/donate more for charity, and to live more frugally- for environmental/social reasons more than economics.

    Here too for both reasons and I think we are doing a little better every year. We still buy too much crap, but most of it is second hand.
    The rest sounds wonderful AP! So glad for you guys.

    Enjoyment.

    Life is too short not to enjoy the simple things. Laughing, family, friends, food, beer, fishing, etc.

    Fearless.
    (Not bungee jumping or risking life or limb; just not being fearful of losing a job, losing my savings, not being able to pay a mortgage, etc.) No fear.
