Goals for 2012
My word for this year is HONEST.
I want to have the boys work on telling the truth. If they tell the truth, they get in less trouble. Also being honest with everything in life. Continuing to be honest with our bills, tithing, neighbors and friends.
My personal goals are
1. Family Home Evening once a month
2. Date night once a month
3. Finish a quilt once a month
4. No screen days (no computers, iPads, TV) twice a month.
5. Finish ALL of Erin's quilts
6. Bills on time
7. Run 500 miles
8. Read 25 books
Family home evening nights to play games with the boys or do something together as a family. Being in the military and Chris being home is a great blessing so we need to live it up!
Date nights are important to Chris so I need to make the effort to do it once a month. I need creative cheap date night ideas...help!!
I don't really have a list of which ones I want to finish but I figure 12 quilts finished is a good goal!
No screen days are something my friend, Mary, started with her boys and I love the idea! Days to just be real boys...playing in dirt, running and everything. I know computers are part of everyday life these days and will continue to be. I just want my boys to know what sand feels like in their hair.
I HAVE to finish her quilts. She has been patient with them sitting at my house but I'm sure she wants them back.
This is going to be an easy one but I need to see it. Pay bills on time. I have a bad case of procrastinations when it comes to bill paying.
I have a few people that are going to do this with me! I'm really excited about doing it with my sister though. If we don't reach 500 miles, we have to pay the other $100!! I hope she does 499! :)
Read 25 books. It doesn't seem like a lot but with 3 boys and lots to do, I think this will be a little tough for me.
What are your goals????
