When I saw that this week’s Tuesday 10 theme was goals to accomplish by 2013, I knew I had to participate since I already had most of the work done with my Bucket List post. At least I started out thinking that way. In actuality, most of my goals are longer-reaching than 3.5 months, but here’s my best shot:
|Could this be the last box of diapers I ever buy?|
1 – This one is a total surprise and not one I would have even thought of a couple weeks ago: Buy my last package of diapers. Who knows, I may have already done this. I don’t even attempt potty-training until my kids are 3. Who would have thought that Bugaboo would want to start on his own at 2 1/2? I suppose I should add little boy underwear to my next shopping list.
2 & 3 – I’m combining these two goals since they kind of go hand-in-hand. Declutter my house (at least the main living areas) and host a Christmas Carol Sing-along party.
4 – Learn to knit. I have a specific project in mind, but since my older girls read my blog, I won’t give away the surprise.
5 – Finally read the Old Testament (I’ve hit the dreaded Psalms roadblock. You’d think after I’ve waded through all the tediousness of Numbers and so on that Psalms would be easy — they’re short and poetical.)
6 – Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. I do pretty good with getting 4 or 5, but more than that is extremely difficult. I think I’ve found a solution that should work involving hair ties worn as bracelets. We’ll see.
7 – Finish personalized Christmas stockings. Last year I posted this photo as a sneak peek to the stockings for Little Miss Sunshine and Princess:
That’s still what their stockings look like. Hopefully by the time Christmas rolls around this year they’ll resemble something more like this:
8 – See if I can master the art of homemade wheat bread. I think I’ve finally found a great recipe, it just ends up a little softer than I’d like.
9 – Visit a corn maze, either on a date with my hubby or with the family
10 – Add shelving to our laundry room.
