Last year, I made my 12 in 12 list for 2009. Looking at the list, it seems that I was a massive failure. I am nearly finished with the credit card debt- my last card will be paid off this month (then onward to student loans...oh boy). I did take a quilting class, but not a yoga class. I did play Wii fit yoga at a Wii Fit party though, does that count? I still cannot knit, was not hired directly (though didn't apply for any positions either), did not visit any new states or countries that I hadn't been to. My one trip outside the US was to Niagara Falls in September...hardly glamorous ;) I don't think I attempted the Sonoma Diet at all. I attended a few different churches on different occasions, though still have not been attending one regularly. Buy a condo, ha! I knew then that that wasn't going to happen....I have lofty goals sometimes! I do use my cookbooks often. I did meet the ex, and no longer refer to her with bad names, though I am still not wild about her. I can deal with her on the rare occasions that I need to, I suppose. After all, he's with me, not her (ps. I am totally cuter than she is).
This must be why I don't make resolutions. Still though, I think I need a few more realistic goals, some things that can and will actually happen. So, here we go---
1. Finish at least one quilting project a month. I find myself starting things all the time, but I don't always finish them, and I need to. Going along with that, post pictures of what I make, and maybe if I make enough, begin a separate blog for projects
2. Finally open the etsy shop I've been thinking about. I did create the shop, but that is all I've done so far. I need to get things made and listed, so that people can see them, and then buy them!
3. Attend mass regularly. As I said, I've gone to a few different churches, and liked them a lot, but I need to actually go, not just talk about it.
4. Do yoga once a week. Even if I just do it at home, that is okay, but once I am comfortable with it, take classes.There are a million yoga studios here.
5. Bring my lunch to work more often. I am lazy and buy it most (okay, every) day, and this is a waste and expensive. I could be doing so much better.
6. Save money. I'm not currently saving at all, and I really need to be. I need to set some saving goals, in order to motivate myself. Maybe a goal should be a trip to Albania...
7. Plan healthy weekly recipes. I don't, at all, which is why I eat hummus and pita for dinner at least twice a week. I should sit down on Sunday nights and plan dinners for the week. Along with that, I can grocery shop for the needed ingredients.
Okay. I am going to start with those for now. I will need to come back and revisit this list, to keep myself on track. These are much more attainable than last year's list....
