So, since it’s around a halfway point of the year, I thought it might be a good idea to revisit my new year’s resolutions/goals and see how I’m doing.
GOALS/AMBITIONS FOR 2012:
Stencil a wall
Make projects for church craft bazaar
Add faux board and batten to blue room?
Organize closets and “pantry”
(aka clean, paint, add drywall, etc.)
Create alphabet wall
Make something out of a pallet
Make living room pillows and curtain
Decorate a nursery
Paint birch trees upstairs?
Cook at home more
Keep up on the housework more
Paint touch-ups on molding and chipped walls
Replace roof/Cheer hubby on as he replaces roof and I watch from below..pregnant
Learn to use my Silhouette well
Start (and continue) a prayer journal
Read God’s Word more
Call my long distance friends more
Plant more flowers
Learn to sew
Continue to learn crocheting
Grow my blog
Make a hobby a job?
Be a better wife
Learn to be a good mommy
My estimation is….not too shabby.
Some of the things on the list are things I’ll never “finish” like being a better wife. I can always work on being better.
Some things we decided to not do or hold off on like putting board and batten in the nursery.
But it’s also a good reminder that I need to PRIORITIZE and remember the things that are really important to me.
I REALLY want to start a prayer journal and I still haven’t!
**shakes finger at self**
There are always house things to do, and they have their place, but I want to focus on my family first and the other people around me that mean so much to me.
Plus, I want to improve on all areas of my life, even the ones that are “checked off”.
Sure, I learned to use my sewing machine, but I’m still scared of it and haven’t used it since. lol.
What are you working on improving in your life??
P.S. There were some friends (who shall remain nameless) that said we should do monthly craft nights to help me achieve some of these goals. That was 6 months and 0 craft nights ago. When’s that gunna happen? 😉
