Here is what I hope to accomplish in 2010. Most of these are trivial little things, but they're my things so they are important to me.
1 - I hope to make a quilt for Lilly and a quilt for Madeleine. I have the templates all made out and the fabric for Madeleine's bought. I will have to get my sewing machine tuned up before I start. Right now, I can mend things on it but I don't trust it to do anything heavy duty. It's been a while since I've sewn and I'm looking forward to it!
2 - I want to learn to knit. I know how, really, but have never spent the time to knit anything substantial. I want to knit a vest for Rosemary and a vest for Victoria.
3 - I want to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I got a Wii fit for Christmas and I am hoping that mixing my love for video games with my hatred for exercising will make it better for me.
4 - Along with that, I want to lose 20 pounds this year. That's less than two pounds a week so I think it's doable. I lost 15 pounds in four months last year.
5 - I would like to get the kids back to helping out more around the house. I had to stop that with my depression. I needed to take the path of least resistance and so I had to forget about them helping me out. Now that I'm on the road to recovery (I still have a ways to go) I think I can get something going for the kids.
6 - I am going to eat out less this year. We can't afford it and it's not healthy. I think once every two months should be a good amount. If that means making canned soup for supper a lot, then so be it.
7 - I want to get Christmas presents all throughout the year and spread out the spending. I guess I'll have to make my list now, then. Hey, maybe I'll be able to find some really nice sales! But, it does mean I have to go shopping more often. *shudder*
8 - I want to make it to NY to visit Dana.
So, there you go. 8 things I hope to accomplish in 2010. How boring am I?
