Tuesday 10 – Goals

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.

What goals are you hoping to accomplish by the end of the year?  Come share them at Mom2MemphisAndRuby’s Tuesday 10 link party.
