Cold Weather Goals Update

My original goals can be found here.

1) Personal

  • I've made it down to 150. Halloween candy was almost my downfall. But I'm half way there!
  • I've lost all my images to my old computer. I haven't heard from the shop about it yet so I'm just working on some small projects and holding off a little longer on Etsy.
  • I bought a small blotter to track bill due dates on. I've been updating my checkbook register once a week to track my balance. My house doesn't look like a tornado has just come through. I can live with that for now.
  • My blog obviously suffered from the computer crash. The new computer is now completely set up and running (minus Quickbooks which I need to upgrade. Poo!). You should be seeing me regularly again.
2) Family
  • We took Monkey to a hockey game at UMO last weekend (Little Man stayed with my GFT because it would have been too much with both kids). We've also been out to eat a couple of times. We need to find some family activities.

  • Children's Creative Corner only has one update since the crash fiasco. All of my links and ideas were on the old machine so I have to do some digging. We may not have been crafty, but we have been doing all sorts of food crafts (ie, cooking).

3) Kitchen

4) Projects

  • Hanging mirror has been painted

  • I have 2 of 5 wine crates stained
  • I need 6 more pockets for Little Man's quilt. I found some rustic looking quilter's squares I've had for years. I'm pretty sure I'm going to use them for the front.
5) Turning house into home

  • Bedroom: My dresser area has been prettified. T's dresser has been simplified. I painted his nightstand this week (with his blessing, of course). It needs baskets to organize his junk... er... stuff. I need fabric for a bed skirt. I need curtains. I currently have plant clippings rooting to add at least 1 plant to our room (I believe I'll be putting it on top of my dresser where I currently have a candle). I have a painting to hang and 2 wall sconces to paint and hang. I'm making progress.

  • Bathroom: T picked up a piece of trim for me on his last trip to Home Depot. I put up a curtain hanger (it's not a rod - it's an idea I came up with and will show you as soon as I figure out curtains). I also need a new shower curtain because T got paint on my nice white one. I put in an "order" with my dad to build a shelf unit for above the toilet. Slow progress but progress nonetheless.
  • Monkey's curtains have been put up.

  • I've also put in an "order" for a bookshelf with my dad for Little Man's room. Otherwise, I haven't done anything in there yet.
  • The wine crates are for the stairwell. Unfortunately, I'll be waiting on T and the drywall before I can finish.
Slow and steady. I have no intention of leaving anything unfinished on this list this year!

How are your lists coming?

Edited for an update: I heard from the computer shop after I typed this out. The old laptop is fried but they were able to pull all of my data off of it. Phew!

I'm glad everything worked out with your computer. I got Mozy a few weeks ago and honestly I am relieved to know if my computer crashes I won't lose everything (again I should say).

Way to stay focused, Jodi. I love that about you, it's inspiring to people like me who go madly off in all directions...

Thanks Nicole.
T always says I'm too focused sometimes. I get grouchy if you break my focus on something. lol (At least he's learned to only break my focus for something important. hehe)
