Well, it’s time for a new year, which means it’s time to review last year’s goals.
I mean, see how well I did. And create some new ones for 2016!
My goals for 2015 were:
(Actually I made 12, but lost my list, so here are the ones I had on the blog.)
-Finish Ruby’s baby quilt. CHECK!
-Finish Audrey’s big girl quilt. CHECK!
-Have a baby girl named Ruby in February. Kind of check? I had a baby girl named Ruby…in January! SURPRISE.
-Graduate with my AA from Portland Community College. CHECK!
-Start my bachelors degree at Washington State University. CHECK.
-Buy a house by November. Kind of check? We bought a house, in December!
-Sell enough Jamberry nail wraps to take my family to Disneyland.
Yup, insert the laughter. ‘Cause that didn’t come anywhere close to happening! Oh, well! Disneyland will be a great place for them to go later in life…like their honeymoon.
-Post more on the blog. I don’t think this really happened. So better luck next year!
Looking back, I did pretty well. Granted my goals were things I pretty much planned to do anyway, so that might be why it worked out for me. But I really liked that. Goals that one can actually accomplish.
So my goals for 2016…
-Make a blanket for Quincy
-Finish Zachary’s twin sized quilt
-Unpack the house
-Donate a ton of our stuff. Because we have TOO MUCH STUFF.
-Convert our homeschool schedule to year round and 4 days a week.
-Have Quincy in May.
-Start saving money for our 10 year wedding anniversary which is in two years!
-Finish my ABC cross stitching
-Take the kids to Mt. Hood next December
There we go, 9 goals for 2016! Let’s rock this! <3
2015 was definitely a good time for our family. We had a few really crappy years there, and 2015 really made up for it. We started off with the birth of Ruby, we are blessed to be expecting a baby boy, we bought a house that is WAY better than we ever thought we’d be able to find, Zachary potty trained, Sydney was baptized, Audrey didn’t have any ear infections, surgeries, or ER trips. We traveled to Idaho, saw family from Utah and Germany. It’s been an amazing year and we are looking forward to what’s in store for us this year!
