February Goals

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Let's revisit January's Goals:

January Goals

1.   Clean out attic;  install shelves and organize space.   Done!  :D
2.   Install shelves in library closet for seasonal decor.   Done!  :D
3.   Have kitchen counters replaced {long story}, install spice drawers, and organize kitchen.  This work will begin February 15th.  It has taken the manufacturer a bit longer to fabricate our bar countertop!  ;P
4.   Paint at least three hours three days/week.   Not even close.  But I was sick at the beginning of the month, and I've spent the last two weeks playing catch-up.
5.   Try a new recipe for dinner at least once a week.   Done!  :D
6.   Organize all stationary and art supplies.   Done!  :D
7.   Take better care of my skin because it gets drier in the winter (i.e. moisturize).   Done!  :D
8.   Make paper snowflakes for Sandy Hook and host link party.  Nope!  But this one wasn't really my fault because the Connecticut PTA cancelled the program.

I didn't do as badly as I had feared!

Here are my goals for February:


February Goals:

1.   Complete all kitchen projects (top priority)
2.   Paint at least twice a week (more realistic)
3.   Organize kitchen desk area
4.   Clean/purge master bath
5.   Donate unwanted books to new Mt. Laurel branch of the North Shelby county Library

I don't have many goals this month, but they all will be time consuming.

What are your goals for February?

Until next time...

  1. Oh wow, you got such a lot done in January. I think my main goal for February is to finish a big editing project I'm working on. If I can finish in Feb. I'll be ahead of schedule!

  2. I have a bunch of fitness goals. I really should make a couple person goals and LINK UP!

  3. You did really really well though! Great job! You can totally get all those goals done, they are fantastic!

    Thanks for linking up!

  4. Wow- you got a lot done in January, especially considering you had the crud. Great job! The kitchen projects sound time consuming, but the potential for decor and organization improvements is always fun! I can't wait to see the kitchen makeover. :)

  5. Gosh, I think you did pretty darn good especially since you were sick!! For me, I don't even know what goals are anymore. I just take one day at a time. Have a good one,

  6. You can come do my bathroom! Nice goal's for the month!

  7. To get back to feeling better
    Walk every morning
    Get back in the studio
    You did pretty good i'd say for not feeling great!
    Good luck this month!

  8. It looks like you made a good dent in that list, even if you didn't complete everything. Be glad of all you did accomplish!

  9. You did a good job with your January list. Good luck for February.

  10. Wow, it's like you're starting your spring cleaning WAY early! Best of luck to you this month!

  11. I love your goals. I am a list and goal maker, but I am cutting myself some slack this year. I am retiring from teaching middle school (32 years) in June and I will have time for things like totally organizing the attic. So I am looking for fun ideas on other blogs. My president's day project will be to spiff up my garden with pillows on an old bench.

    My husband paints in his studio and tries to paint every day. In the book "The Outliers", Malcolm Gladwell uses the number 10,000 hours. He says the difference between good and great in just about anything is the amount of time the great put into their craft.

    I hope you get to paint at least 2 days a week.

  12. Great February list and it looks a little ... ahem ... more doable than January (3 hours a day? yikes that is a lot of time).

  13. New counters? How exciting. I think you did very well considering all you were going through. Good job girlie!
