'Tis the season for regrouping...

Instead of waiting for the first of the year, I've decided to write down my goals (not new year resolutions) for 2012...  Goals are better. New Years resolutions always break.

1) Get back to training. GF invited me to fly out to Atlanta to compete in the Iron Girl Triathlon with her in May. That's not a lot of time!
2) Have Christmas completed by the end of the summer. Making most stuff. Since I have a dedicated craft room I really have no excuse. Maybe I won't be so made at my lazy self.
3) Minimize... I find myself making more non stamp items, buying more great paper unnecessarily, entering competitions  for free stuff that doesn't get used, while my cute stamps and pretty paper sits on the shelf getting dusty. Time to use what I have and stop losing time scoping out new awesome stuff.
4) Spend less time blog hopping, Pineresting, FBing and spend more time doing things that need to be done around the house. Yard work for one thing!
5) Compete in health... Triathlon May or Bike race in September and a 1/2 marathon (maybe a full) in Vegas in December. I have my health and take way too much advantage of it.
6) Motivate DH to get off the couch and away from the XBox car race game and get fit so he sticks around longer then 4 more years.
7) Make enough cards for the years Birthdays, Weddings, Sickies, Thank You's and Holidays by the end of April.  See this way I can work more out in the yard when good weather hits ;0)
8) Get my girls back into their Higher Education studies.
9) At least attempt to go white free... sugar, flour, cream, pasta, rice... Skim Milk is the exception. We are big rice eaters. Whole wheat, brown or nothing!
10) Be kind and don't sweat the small stuff.

There... it's in writing.

Edit... DH just agreed to do the Bay to Breakers 12k with me this year! The Tri in May will have to way until September unless he agrees to do the Edible Pedal 50 or 100 mile bike ride LOL

Sounds good. Wish you luck in your new goals. (I need to adopt some of them myself :) Just don't stop spending time messaging your friends. LOL.

I think I might have to borrow some of your goals. There are some really good ones, I especially like the organizational ones. Thanks for the inspiration!
