It’s time for 2012 goals…. but first, let’s quickly recap 2011 goals.
I went with more concrete goals for the year. Overall, I think I did rather well. (Although not so well in the health section.)
Take a family photo in the fall. Make digital albums for each of the first 3 years of our marriage. Organize photos, scan and back up. Make a blog book. Go on two trips. Practice taking better photos. create Finish a quilt. Make a list of sewing/crochet/crafting projects and make something for us every month. Refinish the sewing table. Build a piece of furniture with Ryan. Make myself an item of clothing. home Finish the new house. Sell our current home. Move into our new home. Get on a regular cleaning schedule. learn Finish my MBA. Finish my designation. cook Make a new recipe every month. Cook a vegetarian meal each week. Eat at home at least 3 days/week. save Keep the budget every month. Get debt-free. Live on one paycheck by year’s end. health Run 5 miles without stopping. Work out at least 12 days/month. Find a tennis partner and play. grow Have a garden despite the moving situation. Preserve produce. misc. Send thank-you notes regularly. Purge things we don’t need or use.
As for 2012, I’m going with just one goal…
Have a baby!
(Ryan got me this ornament for Christmas from Etsy. My baby belly isn’t quite so big. Yet.)
That’s right … the NewlyWoodwards are having a baby. I figured it’d be silly to make any other goals for 2012. I think this is a big enough change for the year.
Baby W is due in June, which means we’re about 16 weeks along. So far, so good on the pregnancy front. Outside of extreme exhaustion and worthlessness in the way of productivity, I’ve been feeling pretty good.
Needless to say, there will be lots to do in the upcoming months. While I don’t plan to make this blog baby-central, I hope you’ll understand that I’ve got baby on the brain, and some of our projects will definitely center around that. But that doesn’t mean that we won’t still be the same ol’ NewlyWoodwards – renovating, gardening, crafting and writing all about the journey.
So, did you have a feeling something was brewing around here?
(And also, any helpful books and websites for parents-to-be would certainly be welcome.)
