so...about a year ago i posted about my goals for the year and thought i should see how i did.
✭BLOG more - my goal was 3 times a week. clearly that didn't happen since my last post before this one was what, september? in fact i think i blogged less this year than any other year before. so, maybe not making a blog goal this year will be more effective.
✭COUPONing- i have to say i did awesome with this the first half of the year. i learned good prices and when to stock up, etc. in fact i'm still using some of the stuff i stocked up on. but, mid-year i sort of fizzled out. it takes so much time! i keep saying, once i can quit my day job i'll coupon more. still look for good deals, but i don't dedicate as much time lately..
✭COOK more - totally did this. my crockpot and i have become good friends and meal planning is a life (and pocketbook) saver.
✭make QUIET BOOKS for my kids - aced this one. ok, it may still be un-bound, but the pages have been done for months and the kids enjoy it. i loved this project! i have ideas for several more that hopefully i'll get around to soon.
✭SCRIPTURES every day - did pretty good on this. always want to do better! and read to my kids every day.
✭lose WEIGHT - how do i measure this one. i gained about 15 pounds and have lost that again plus some. still working on it.
✭GARDEN - i was super proud of our garden this year! we had a bounty of squash, zucchini, grean beans, bell peppers (yellow, red, orange and green), poblano peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, basil, parsley, chives and cucumbers. i made about 12 bottles worth of spaghetti sauce and two batches of pepper jelly with our spoils.
✭made JAMS & JELLIES - pepper jelly from our garden and mixed berry jam. YUM!
✭organize and decorate our OFFICE - kept up on my filing and organizing. didn't decorate though
✭house UPDATES on our house - we did get new blinds for the living room. no painting or updates to kitchen yet.
so, i didn't accomplish everything 100% but i made and kept other goals throughout the year so i am not ashamed. i love the new year and fresh start it seems to give. BRING IT ON 2012. i'm so ready for you!
