Eleven in '11

One resolution (that would be LIGHT, yes?) but let's shoot for eleven goals in 2011.

I will wake up every morning and spend *some* time, even if it's 3 minutes, fortifying my resolve for the day. "Today I will..." I often jump up and go, and find myself scattered and unproductive despite my need to hit the ground running. A moment's reflection at the beginning of the day should help.

I will have Simon's quilt finished in time to enter it into the county fair in August.

I will probably not lose as much weight this year as I want to, but any weight is better than none, so I will lose some. I'm gonna shoot for a realistic 18 lbs. When I get there, I'll reset the ticker and shoot for something even better.

I will save an extra $100 per month. My bank has added a cool new spending tracker feature to their website and I can plainly see, by their pie chart, where too much of our money is going. I think this is very doable, even with college in the fall.

The kitchen floor gets washed twice a week (whether it needs it or not *snort!*)

I will open an Etsy store.

One dinner a week will be meatless. (and my family will cry. tough.)

I will declutter - something goes EVERY.SINGLE.DAY for the whole year. I'll take a picture and share, even, just to stay honest. I will try my very hardest to be green about it - garbage is the last resort. But it's gotta be out of here, and NOT replaced. I have too much stuff!

what are we up to... 9?

I will grow my garden from seeds.

The front of the house will get finished this year. Everything to do it is here, I just have to make it a priority. I just did.

I will find a place for me. I spend too much time on the computer because there is not a place in my own house where I feel I can sit and still be close to my family but that is just mine. Maybe it's a chair in a corner, maybe it's a whole room. Regardless, I want, no, I NEED a space, and I shall find it.

Keep me posted on your ETSY store. I would like to open one, but I'm not sure how it works. Good resolutions.
