Out with the old...

Before I make my goals for 2011, I wanted to do a quick review of my goals for this year...Here's where I stand:
1. Read 20 books I read about 8 1/2
2. Stick to a budget Quite successful. First time ever I can say that! Paid for a baby, emergencies, school with proper planning. Even saved a little!
3. De-junk the house Did we ever!
4. Learn to make a patchwork quilt Complete and utter failure
5. Start making felt baby shoes {Crickets}
6. Lose 40 lbs I lost 60!
7. Learn more about photography, and hopefully improve upon Learned more, still trying to improve with my dopey little camera. Let's just say I won't ever be charging for my services!
8. Find a hint of a green thumb I killed off my basil, but the Italian parsley is still thriving.
9. Be a better and more effective homemaker Mixed feelings on this one. The babies keep it interesting.
10. Practice civility, generosity, and graciousness in everyday situations A never-ending struggle. Being aware of my actions has made a huge difference. This will have to carry on every year.

If I may comment on number 10 - You are one of the most generous and thoughtful people I know! I am very lucky to have you as a friend. And the book count I think the Historian counts as 12 books at least :0)
