Happy New Year 2015!



it's that time of year again folks, where many of us set goals to achieve throughout the upcoming year.

here's mine for 2015.  you'll see some that carry over from 2014, because i did not succeed in achieving them last year, and some new ones as well!

i'm breaking them down into categories again, as that worked well for me last year.

financial:
1.  make maximum contributions to pre-tax retirement funds
2. pay cash for a new car if this is the year the saturn dies

health:
1.  get back down to 140 lbs or less
2.  get back into an exercise program 2-3 times per week, even if it's just going for a 15 minute walk!

home:
1. paint interior (we bought the paint in 2014, but never picked colors and got it tinted!)
2. finish remodel of M's house

quilting and sewing:
1.  learn to use my serger - for reals this year
2.  Get done with all pre-2014 WIPS!!! Finish at least one per month.
3.  make at least 4 quilts for charity
4. finish medallion quilt by February
5.  keep using the fabric i have instead of purchasing more, and limit new purchases
6. keep trying curves to master them!

here's to a successful, happy and healthy 2015!

That's a great list! Your goals are quite realistic, so I don’t think you’ll have a difficult time achieving most of them this year. Though I hope your car won’t suddenly quit on you. I wish you good luck on accomplishing the rest on your list, and nothing more will be carry over next year. Cheers!

Creating to-do lists for a full year like this one is a lost art, the way I see it. It’s good that people like you are still around—you clearly have a knack of anticipating things and ensuring that you’ll see them through. With the end of the year nearing, I’m hoping you accomplish every last one of these. Thanks for sharing!
