A Girl's Gotta Have Goals

Evidence that the kitchen remodel project is far from complete

Each year I come up with a list of goals.

Last year I was actually pretty successful at crossing some things off the list:

Move to Michigan
Buy a house (NOT a condo, a REAL house)
Get my back in better shape
Exercise (even if it’s just regular walks)
Read to the boys more
Get to know my nieces again
Dress better    I realize that this is subjective, but I'm trying to move beyond the frazzled "Mom with young kids" look
Devote more time to QUALITY family time

      Here's the new list:

  • Learn to knit
  • Try yoga
  • Eat healthier
  • Blog at least 3 times per week
  • Take more pictures
  • Become a better photographer
  • Get the kitchen remodel finished!
  • Organize the house
  • Spending freeze! (this will mean avoiding Target, thrift stores, and the Warby Parker website - my biggest weaknesses)
  • Read more (and add good reads to the Book Recommendations page)
  • See friends more
  • Keep a journal
  • Write a short story
  • Stop biting my nails (I have tried - and failed - to do this often throughout my life)
  • Stop drinking soda
  • Start a garden

I'll have to review this again in August 2013 and see how I've done. Wish me luck!
