The wife’s January goals – how’d I do?

It’s hard to believe that January is already over. Just like every other month, it seemed to race by.

The wife’s January goals
Read at least two books.
The Girlfriend’s Guide to Baby Gear, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, and Gentle Birth Gentle Mothering 
Try a new recipe.
We tried chicken and dumplings this month, along with other new recipes 
Make upcycled mittens for myself.
I’ll share soon.
Purge and donate excess stuff.
I’ve been working on this with the basement organization. Definitely making good progress.
Organize craft stuff and fabric.
In progress… it’s looking better already.
Get to the gym.
Fail! This is what I would call an epic fail!
Install open shelves in the kitchen.
They are finally up!

And, now… onto February.

The wife’s February goals
Read at least two books.
Host one of my favorite bloggers (with the help of one of my other favorite bloggers) in my hometown.
Soak up some Vitamin D in Arizona.
Try a new recipe.
Start nursery plan.
Confirm and order nursery fabric.
Make curtains for basement windows.
Make monthly half-square triangles.
Piece together Christmas quilt.

What are your goals for the month?


  1. Wow! You’re really great at meeting most of your monthly goals!
    Hope you’re feeling strong today, Kim!

  2. I like you are going to soak up some Vitamin D in Arizona!!!! I plan to do the same in Argentina. I am counting the days till I hit 90 degree weather! Good luck with all your goals!

  3. A good list! Maybe I’d get more done if I made a list…hmm….Wish I was going to AZ!

  4. I loved the shelving (and I noticed we have the same set of mixing bowls ha ha). I can’t wait to see what Nursery fabric you pick out!

  5. I’d say that was an accomplished month! Can’t wait to see all you do in February (HOW is it February already???)

  6. Great goals! Love this!

  7. Great job with your goals! I wish my to-do lists looked as accomplished as yours!

  8. Nicole @My Thrafty Life says:

    You are just truckin along! Go girl!

  9. Wow, great job on your goals! I’m so bad – I haven’t even finished making my 2012 goal list.

  10. Congrats on your January goal list!

  11. How’s about your two favorite bloggers soak up Vit D with you?……double list cross off. I like the way I think. :P

  12. What a fun month Feb will be for you!

  13. Did you like the book, particular sadness of lemon cake? I was intrigued by the title and battled my way thru it and I finished it but wouldn’t say I enjoyed it.
    great job on all the goals last month.

  14. You accomplished like 10 times more things than I did in January! :)

  15. Great job! My exercising goals always get forgotten each month… :) Oh well! At least we’re productive in other areas of our lives! :)
