2012 Goals

Ok, so Michael and I are list people.  Probably because we are math nerds, but we made a 2012 spreadsheet of goals with four categories:  Financial, Spiritual, Physical, House Stuff (This doesn't really fit, but this is kinda our fun one.  We like to play house.).  It is pretty intense, but we think doable. 

Financially - 
1.  Pay off all none mortgage dept, school loan and car loan.  This one will be a stretch, but I think we can do it.
2.  Save set amounts each month for rainy day fund, retirement, next car, future kiddo.

Spiritually - 
1.  12 verses a year.  I'll post more on this later, but this is a new family tradition that we are going to implement.
2.  365 days in the Word.  We are seeking holiness (to become more like Christ).

Physically - 
1.  Run a post/pre :) baby half-marathon in the fall and no, there will probably not be a baby this year. This one may be a bit more of a challenge in the mountains as opposed to flat flat Texas.  We will see.  
2.  Complete P90X.
3.  Regain lost muscle from pregnancy.  Weight, I am happy, but I still do not feel as strong as before. 

House Stuff - (Making a home)
1. Paint dining room(dark grey)/kitchen(light grey)
2.  Transplant rose bushes and mulch yard
3.  Add a few plants and grass to needed areas in yard
4. Sew curtains for living room, play room, and dining room (ps...my mom and dad got me a sewing machine for Christmas and I am pumped)
5. Toothbrush clean the remaining tiles in our house (backing soda with vinegar then toothbrush and go = beautiful grout...cheap just time consuming)  We will probably make this into a pizza party.
6.  Turn Ellison's closet into a play space  (She has a mini sized closet in the side of her room that is unfinished.  Our plan is to get it done for her birthday which is just over a month away...can you believe it! Stay tuned.)
7. Fix the major draft in the laundry room.

  1. Hey there! I just stumbled across your blog. I really like the 356 days in the word idea. I think me and my husband will have to start that. Looking forward to your future posts, I just subscribed via google reader.
