I know it’s not even Christmas yet and looking back at the past year is usually reserved for the last week of December, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the 100 in 2015 challenge from Katrina at ‘Sota is Sexy last January. Even though I never fully made it through the 31 day challenge (I have high hopes of doing so at some point), the one item I fully embraced was my list of To Do’s for the year. Here is my progress report for 2015.
1: Call my parents once a week on Friday’s – Habit
Though I got better at talking to my parents more often, I unfortunately never formed the habit I was hoping for. At least I am talking to them more than once every couple months now. Don’t worry, we text more often than we talk, but still…
2: Facetime with my brother, SIL, and nieces once a month – Habit
Though I had the best intentions, I think we Facetimed once in all of last year and that’s because my mom was Facetiming with them and I happened to be there. Bad Auntie….very bad Auntie….
3: Vacuum the house once a week – Habit
LOL that’s all I’m going to say….
4: Have a 3 song impromptu dance party twice a week – Habit
I LOVE a good impromptu dance party but was never able to coordinate my spaz attacks into an actual habit for exercising purposes.
5: Have salad for breakfast once a week – Habit
I loved this part of the challenge and was actually surprised that salad for breakfast was awesome! However, I never eat breakfast so I never formed the habit….
6: Eat breakfast – Habit
7: Send cards all year for birthday’s and anniversaries
8: Learn and use 5 new hairstyles
I don’t think I even learned one….
9: Blog at least once a week – Habit
I tried. I planned for it. But life has a way of changing your plans….
10: Plan and take 3 mini trips
This actually happened! C and I went on an Oregon adventure one weekend in February, I met up with Fishy at Vichy Springs in April, I went to Texas for a conference, and I flew to CA a couple weeks ago! Major success!
11: Start a garden mushroom side business
This is still on the back burner. A lot happened this year and I was limited on creative space.
12: Plan and take 1 big trip
Even though I was moving, I think a 5 day drive across the country counts as one big trip considering I travelled through 8 states!
13: Plan 1 super big trip to take in the next three years
Nothing is official but I have started to toss around ideas….
14: Join the gym
I dream big
15: Work out twice a week – Habit
I really dream big
16: (Re)learn to knit or crochet
I did it! I picked up some materials and started to crochet again!
17: Complete one yarn project
I may have started my blanket but right now I can only cover about 6 inches of a queen size bed. This may take awhile…
18: Learn to can
This has been on my to do list for about 5 + years…..
19: Create a 2 week preparedness kit
I can’t believe I still haven’t done this. This is kind of essential, don’t you think?
20: Take myself out on a date
Sure I dine alone, or shop alone, or do a lot alone, but I can’t say that I’ve officially taken myself out on a date. I know it seems silly, but it might end up being the best date I’ve ever been on…
To be continued….
