Check - the office is still a mild reservoir of junk, but it's much improved
2 Arrive at places 10 minutes early.
Looking like a
3 Focus on being a considerate and caring wife.
Progress - This is a weird goal, because it's kind of like a continual goal. I think marriage is definitely work and it's important not to slack or take your partner for granted.
4 Focus on one cookbook a month and cook at least 2 recipes from this book a week.
I've only been able to partially do this - with our work schedules finding time for dinner together at home has been hard. We usually only cook 2-3x a week. I was able to really focus on some of my recipe books, in particular Thug Kitchen and Southern Cooking Bible. I didn't really reach this goal though.
5 If Aaron and I do not go to or stream church on Sunday, watch the sermon by Tuesday that week.
6 Finish my South Africa photobook.
7 Regularly limit my sugar intake to 25g a day, at least 4 out of 7 days a week.
Check - this is another continual goal but I think I've been really working myself towards it and can consider it achieved.
8 Work out twice a week and weigh myself weekly.
Check - whenever humanly possible I'm at the gym twice a week. Weighing myself is still kind of painful though.
9 Instead of feeling like getting ready for bed is a burden, make it more of spa and pampering experience with music and candles.
Progress - I noticed this goal has been neglected so I've been working on it this week.
10 Work on building a nest egg with Aaron outside of retirement - rainy day funds, future house fund.
Progress - Aaron and I have gotten better at monitoring our spending so we can tuck away money. Our nest egg got set back when Aaron's car broke down and we decided to get a new car. However I think that in general we're wiser about our spending this year.
11 Make my mother a wedding album.
Really need to at least order this by Christmas so I can give her an IOU.
12 Redecorate the bedroom.
Check - pretty happy about that!
5 goals completed. 3 goals in progress. 4 goals that were not really addressed. Some I'm definitely rolling over into next year - getting places 10 minutes early, streaming the church service by Tuesday. I'm not really sure what new goals I'll incorporate. Right now, it's crunch time and I still have time to make some of these happen.
