Winter 2016

I just heard about 30 seconds of a TED talk about how sharing your goals makes you less likely to work to achieve them, because you get the positive feedback before you reach the goal, but I think my problem is more remembering my goals than lacking motivation to achieve them.

How did Fall 2015 go?

  • Slipcover for basement couch
  • Mail things to babies
  • Big basket on the sewing table
  • Green box
  • Portraits of Children!
  • Videos of Children! Took them, but didn't do anything with them...
  • Make as many Christmas gifts as possible.
  • Enjoy Fall weather.  Be outside.  Kids outside.  
  • College Kid Boxes
  • Visit Abby
  • Memorize quote from St. Francis de Sales--"Never be in a hurry; do all things quietly and in a calm spirit.  Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset."  Just the first half.
  • CD project
  • One of the stack of boxes in office.
  • Decide on design for Lauren's quilt. and fabric ordered!  So excited.
  • Be home more.  Try to make home the default option and do less.   Took Wednesdays in town off the schedule!  Lovely.  
That's not bad!

Winter 2016

  • Banquette seating/Benches
  • Bathroom in Basement
  • Cut out Lauren's Quilt
  • Katie Birthday
  • Try to make Toffee
  • Peppermint Bark
  • Put away Christmas
  • Figure out Spring Break
  • Teddy Baby Book
  • Hall Photos
  • 8x10 Album
  • Christmas Card Display
  • Prune and Fertilize trees
  • Thank you notes  Christmas, but not Katie's birthday yet.  :(
  • Portraits
  • New Schedule
  • Take Recycling
  • Go through house again
  • Go for walks as a family.
Some of those are really MJL's goals-I'm not actually going to try to build a bathroom in the basement, but I need to remember that when big projects are going on, there probably will be less time for my projects.

What's on your Winter List?
