Last year I did something like this, and I liked it so here it is again. Here are the resolutions I set last year followed by how I did accomplishing them.
1: Finally (may I repeat...FINALLY) get all of our stuff done to get our adoption homestudy approved - Done and done. It took a while, and there were many, many roadbumps and problems along the way...but it finally got done and boy did it feel good to get that checked off the list. The bad thing is now we have to re-do it, because of our move. Oi. Pray for us...our caseworker doesn't seem to be all that motivated to do anything at a quicker pace than cold molasses dripping down a tree.
2: Lose some weight - Fail...I weigh more today than I did Jan 1, 2010. I did really well until summer. I am an emotional eater and the wicked stress/drama of the adoption of the twins did me in. Then after it fell apart I ate my feelings. Then the holidays came and all that darn Halloween candy, followed by Thanksgiving and then Christmas. I have absolutely NO will power when it comes to yummy food.
3: Do something nice for someone everyday - Eh. I was more consious of others, and how my decisions and choices affect them, but I did not make a concentrated effort everyday. Although Nathan and I made an effort to do several nice random acts of kindness.
4: Be better at remembering birthdays - I tried. I did better than last year, but still not good enough for me. This one makes it to this year's list...third time's the charm, right?
5: Get and stay organized - Did some...then everything got scrapped when we decided to move. My goal for this year is to de-junk/de-clutter/downsize and organize our new place.
6: Be able to comfortably play all 340 hymns in the hymnbook - I know more than I did this time last year...there are still a few that trip me up.
7: Try one new recipe a month - I did ok here. The first half of the year I did 100%...then I went back to work at the end of May and my crazy work schedule does not lend itself to time to cook. I'm hoping after the dust settles from the move I'll get back into the cooking groove.
