2021 Goal Recap

Well,  I don't know if there will be 2022 goals, but I figured I owed it to me from a year ago to re-cap the goals I listed for 2021.

I'll just go ahead and cross off whatever I finished....

Here we have, my 2021 goal list:
  1. 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.
  2. Bake regularly.
  3. Yell less.
  4. Complete a counted cross-stitch project. I've got two to choose from.
  5. Wash my vehicle at least monthly. 
  6. Drink at least four glasses of water daily, on a regular basis.
  7. Set up my previously designated notebook as a recipe book.
  8. Complete at least 40 Yelp reviews. - looks like 24 so far...still a week left?
  9. Feed birds through the winter.
  10. Put hanging flower baskets at front porch for summer.
  11. Continue unpacking office boxes from the basement.
  12. Score for Pearson.
  13. Do family holiday cards. Mail them in November 2020.
  14. Blog regularly.
  15. Walk regularly when it's warm outside.
  16. Read regularly. My Goodreads goal is set at 100 books for this year. - at 95. Still a week left, but unlikely to finish 5 books since I also work four days this week.
  17. Do the 52 week savings challenge for holiday shopping at the end of the year.
  18. 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.
  19. Burn more candles.
  20. Update the kids' bedroom doors (currently still decorated from Valentine's Day, 2014, I think).
  21. Finish re-organizing office with a goal of redecorating and doing more of my usual work in there. 
  22. Keep working a job outside the home.
  23. Do something fun with my hair (cut/color) at least once this year.
  24. Reschedule our Disney trip when it's safe to do so.
  25. Save enough money to have a $1K cushion before our Disney trip.
  26. Appreciate that my life is pretty wonderful with or without these goals accomplished.
  27. Believe in my ability to complete these goals.
What a year 2021 has been. I did indeed start a full-time job on February 1. It's perfect for me, and I truly enjoy it. That said, we've been remote all year. So while not exactly a job 'outside the home,' I'm on the clock 40 hours a week, so I'll count it. We're scheduled to go to the office full-time starting sometime in May 2022.

I'm so eternally proud of my children especially for becoming more independent all the time. I could not take the time to do my job without them helping pick up some of my household slack, and also managing themselves to exist without supervision so well.
