I saw this on Bubba's Sis' blog and thought I'd check out & compare my last year's goals as well. As a general rule, I don't make resolutions or set goals. However, I think I did a fairly reasonable job of setting ones that were attainable.
- Eat out more (which will not help #8 much)
- Keep track of the books I read in 2008
- Finish the blanket I've been crocheting for Bear the last 2 years
- Start Lamb's Washington DC scrapbook (she went 3 years ago)
- See Coastie Brother get married in January
- Spend less time worrying
- Find a new church
- Manage my time/finances/sleeping better
- Learn how to do something new
- Have a wonderful Get-Away
I did a fairly good job of this. Towards the end of the year, the economy & growing kids made it harder to eat out as a family. But, I went out a lot with friends.
I definitely did this. I have read over 60 books this year. Once I started taking Lamb to school, my reading greatly suffered. I do well to get in a page or two before the eyes start crossing. Waking up early is definitely for the birds!
Um, no. But! But! I have been diligently working on it. Some day it WILL be finished.
Um, no again. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't even looked at it. I have thought about it often tho. In March, Bear will be going. Maybe I should just do them together? ;)
I so did this!
Yeah, that'll never happen. Why did I even bother setting it as a goal?
Accomplished! Actually, it's the church we went to when we first moved here.
I've done ok with this. I am doing other things with my time such as crocheting. The finances are better out of necessity. There just isn't any money to spend wildly. Thanks economy! ;) And sleeping? Well, that goes in spurts. During the school year, I am much better at it than during the breaks.
I also did this! I taught myself to knit, thanks to looms. A friend from Facebook told me about them. Fun and easy, so far! I stopped working on Bear's blanket to knit Lamb a scarf and one for Bear to take to DC. Did them in a couple of days! I have also learned a lot of stuff about photoshop.
Again, I did this too. I went to Dallas with Bubba's Sis to see Bon Jovi in concert. And went to New York City for a fabulous time with my family. I'm ready for the next get-away!Not too shabby! However, I'm still not setting anything for 2009. I'm just going to go with the flow and be Me.
I hope 2009 is a smooth one for all of you and allows ya'll to be You as well!
