2019 Goals

I feel exceptionally un-motivated lately. I've been working my 'regular' two-hour breakfast shift, plus subbing for lunch at a couple different buildings, adding another three or four hours or so to each work day. And (TMI) the blood pressure meds I started on last spring make me TIRED (and potentially depressed...). So I keep pushing on, but it's more of a day-by-day thing than a making-goals thing. Luckily, I work from last years list and then see what else comes to mind.

Here we have, my 2019 goal list:
  1. Establish educational savings accounts for both kids. This is the year! Thankfully, Ashley from Armadillo Bulldog left me some helpful information in a comment when I announced this as a failed goal from 2018 (and it was also a fail from 2017!). Thanks, Ashley - I'm on it!
  2. Bake regularly.
  3. Yell less.
  4. Complete a counted cross-stitch project. I've got two to choose from! I think first I need to get a good crafting light for the corner of the family room. And having my new glasses will help too.
  5. Wash my vehicle at least monthly.
  6. Drink at least four glasses of water daily, on a regular basis.
  7. Learn to french braid my hair and Maggie's.
  8. Set up my Erin Condren notebook as a recipe book.
  9. Complete at least 50 Yelp reviews.
  10. Feed birds through the winter.
  11. Put hanging flower baskets at front porch for summer.
  12. Continue unpacking office boxes from the basement.
  13. Score for Pearson.
  14. Work elections (if there are any this year?).
  15. Blog regularly.
  16. Walk regularly when it's warm outside.
  17. Read more books. 2018 saw me reading 42, so 'more' means 43! I'm well ahead of this goal so far.
  18. See at least ten movies in the theater.
  19. Do the 52 week savings challenge for holiday shopping at the end of the year.
  20. Save enough from my school-year paychecks so we can still do fun stuff this summer.
  21. Burn more candles.
  22. Update the kids' bedroom doors (currently still decorated from Valentine's Day, 2014, I think).
  23. Re-organize office with a goal of more crafty stuff I enjoy.
  24. And then do more crafty stuff (card-making or scrapbooking?).
  25. Minimize wardrobe to fit comfortably in drawers seasonally (with off-season in under-bed storage).
  26. Keep working a job outside the home.
  27. Get at least one more pair of work pants, so I can have two outfits. LOL
  28. Do something fun with my hair (cut/color) at least once this year.
  29. Do a couples painting (at like Painting with a Twist or whatever) with hubs.
  30. Get new bath towels for the whole house.
  31. Relocate the toys (except maybe the board games?) out of the family room, and into the kids' rooms and the basement.
  32. Appreciate that my life is pretty wonderful with or without these goals accomplished.
  33. Believe in my ability to complete these goals.

I'm surprised you "only" read 42 books in 2018 lol. My goal was 50 and I read about 42-43.... One of my goals is to read more.

I'm with you on some of these! Drinking water - but more than 4. Writing Yelp reviews - I didn't think of setting a number (good idea). I also have a goal to blog regularly! Good goals, Becki!
