january goals update

January 31, 2013

So I set some goals for January and here’s what happened with them.

Complete the Day by Day class. I did this! It was a self-paced class put on by Studio Calico about Project Life. There were two videos and a whole bunch of articles to read, all of which were helpful, and I even used the stamp set and printables that came along with it. 

Choose a quilt size and design. Done and talked about in this post.

Go on a date. We went on two! For David’s birthday we went to Fuddruckers and watched the Texans play on a giant screen, and then a couple weeks later we spontaneously went out to eat sans child. (We didn’t just leave her at home or anything. Someone was babysitting. Just to clarify.)

Buy sunscreen and use it daily. I haven’t done this yet because we’ve been in a financial crunch and only the necessities have been purchased. But the crunch is over and I think I’ll make this one of my goals for February. Any suggestions for a natural, daily facial sunscreen that is not too expensive?

Officially join our church. We have this scheduled for February 17 and Meredith is getting baptized at the same time. :)

Hang a cross stitch project. No, didn’t do this because I didn’t have frames or the money to buy them. Hopefully soon though…

Leave work on time. Ugh, lots of room for improvement here. Out of the 20 days I worked in January (not counting today), I left early twice, was on time 6 times, and left late 12 times. Most of those were just fifteen minutes late but since I have a long commute from in town to a big suburb, in even that short amount of time the traffic multiplies exponentially. I’m going to leave this goal on for next month because I know I can do better.

I did fairly well – three goals fully completed, one scheduled and in the works, two intentionally not completed due to financial reasons (out of my control, mostly), and only one truly failed. I’m still nailing down my goals for February and I’ll be back to share tomorrow. :)
