2013 - Goals and Aspirations

2012 was a good year, filled with a lot of successes, completed goals, and good times with friends and family.

2013, of course, has the potential to be even better. i think it's important to set goals, because without a goal, there's nothing to strive for.  with that in mind, here are a few of my goals for the new year:

1.  pay off the mortgage (which is the only debt we have at this point!)
2.  make contributions to retirement funds
3.  make a budget and stick to it

1.  keep off the weight i lost in 2012 and maintain at or less than 140 lbs
2.  get back into an exercise program 2-3 times per week
3.  incorporate more fruits and veggies into our meals, and decrease processed foods

1.  get sewing/craft room whipped into shape
2.  continue going through cupboards and closets and weed out unneeded items
3.  have M install quarter-round along baseboards in both baths and re-do caulk in around tub and showers
4.  paint interior
5.  rip up carpet and have hardwoods refinished

quilting and sewing:
1.  learn to use my serger
2.  work on improving my FMQ skills
3.  complete more of my WIPs (when cleaning out, i found more pre-2012 WIPs that weren't on last year's list!)
4.  finish at least one quilt per month
5.  make at least 4 string quilts for charity
5.  make japanese plus/minus quilt
6.  make at least 3 quilts from patterns/designs i have pinned on pinterest
7.  use the fabric i have instead of purchasing more!

hopefully i can accomplish all or most of these goals over the next 12 months.
