This Year’s Goals – 5 of 12

So I made a list of things I’d like to do or get done this year. I’m determined to not be doing all of them in December of this year… But instead spread them out over the year.


I had some time off this month which was really nice! I got to spend lots of time catching my breath. I had hoped that’d translate into blog posts… but it may yet! 😉

1. Paint at least 2 rooms this year.

Got some sample paint (I have some concerns about how true it is to color given the aptitude of the paint mixer… but that’s another story…). Put sample paint on the walls. Been staring at for a couple weeks…

Probably going for it.

I also settled on colors for the upstairs halls, and upstairs guest room! 

2. Start doing yoga regularly.

Will start soon! Have a friend to go with, just need to pick a day.

3. Write 1 letter of encouragement every month.

Yup owe 5 now…

4. Make sushi at home.

No sushi at home this month. 

5. Organize my closet- lose the things I don’t wear, get new things I can and will wear.

Couple new things added, couple things removed.

But mostly I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where stuff was…. ‘Cause apparently if you tend to operate on auto in the morning, moving ALL your clothes to new locations at once can cause confusion… So shortly I will go back to organizing, when I find everything again!

6. Make time for fun/hobbies. Find new ones I like.

I did a lot of tinkering this month. Lots of organizing, and some spring cleaning. That occupied most of my free time!

Oh and going to the ocean! We did that a couple times… 🙂 

How’s your lists and goals coming?
