So I tried to do a much more concise job with my 2020 goals, but of course, that was before we knew what 2020 was really going to be. Now? I suspect we're all a little gun-shy. I can't take a lot more disappointment, you know?
Here we have, my 2021 goal list:
- Paint the front door. See, it's dark green right now, and I really feel another color will do better to offset our green holiday wreath. And painting in the winter seems like a bad idea, so I'll need to remember/follow-up with this one in the summer, more or less.
- Bake regularly.
- Yell less.
- Complete a counted cross-stitch project. I've got two to choose from.
- Wash my vehicle at least monthly.
- Drink at least four glasses of water daily, on a regular basis.
- Set up my previously designated notebook as a recipe book.
- Complete at least 40 Yelp reviews.
- Feed birds through the winter.
- Put hanging flower baskets at front porch for summer.
- Continue unpacking office boxes from the basement.
- Score for Pearson.
- Do family holiday cards. Mail them in November 2020.
- Blog regularly.
- Walk regularly when it's warm outside.
- Read regularly. My Goodreads goal is set at 100 books for this year.
- Do the 52 week savings challenge for holiday shopping at the end of the year.
- Find something consistent to replace my school jobs. Full-time? Part-time? Who knows - just a new job hopefully remote, so I'm not laid-off or furloughed anymore.
- Burn more candles.
- Update the kids' bedroom doors (currently still decorated from Valentine's Day, 2014, I think).
- Finish re-organizing office with a goal of redecorating and doing more of my usual work in there.
- Keep working a job outside the home.
- Do something fun with my hair (cut/color) at least once this year.
- Reschedule our Disney trip when it's safe to do so.
- Save enough money to have a $1K cushion before our Disney trip.
- Appreciate that my life is pretty wonderful with or without these goals accomplished.
- Believe in my ability to complete these goals.
Yeah - These are pretty much copied from previous years. It turns out I'm no longer much of a 'goals' person for myself. More of a 'keep the kids alive and happy' kind of person. So I just need to keep breathing and surviving.
