How Am I Doing?
Remember at the beginning of the year, I actually made a few New Year’s resolutions…what was I thinking?
Half Year Status Update
Just like the good corporate citizen I am, where I review my annual work goals with my boss at the mid-year period, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same for my New Year’s resolutions. Here’s where we are:
- Read The Hunger Games Trilogy
- Status – Complete
- Watch The Hunger Games
- Status – Complete
- Finish the Blanket/Coffin Cover project
- Status – Made minimal progress…now that the blogathon is over, I can pick it up again
- Travel overseas
- Status – No progress on this yet and nothing in the foreseeable future
- Get down to 190 pounds and stay below 195 all year
- Status – went the wrong way on this one and just hit 200 for the first time in years
- Grow at least one kind of vegetable
- Status – this was a bad idea, because it required Thaddeus to participate…he won’t
- Blog an average of at least twice a week (and yes, this one counts!)
- Status – With the successful blogathon, I think I’ll meet this goal handily
- Thank someone daily
- Status – either in person or via e-mail or phone call, this has definitely been happening
Honestly, I’m still glad I set some goals for myself this year, even though I won’t meet them all. And it’s even nice to have a chance to publicly assess them. With the most recent Supreme Court ruling, I may soon be adding marriage as a goal.
The blogathon has also prompted me to do a bit more fiber work than I might have without it. A pretty impressive month, no?
I think I’ve discussed here my feelings about The Hunger Games Trilogy…it was okay…I thought it had a compelling plot that make me want to keep reading, but I also thought it was either not extremely good writing, or it was dumbed down for a younger audience (which I always think is a bad idea).
Lately, I’ve been reading Pearl S. Buck…her Good Earth trilogy. I just finished the second book and if you’ve never read this, it’s well worth reading. Can’t wait to read the third book now.
Thanks to those of you who added me to your various social networks. I’ve added a number of new Facebook Friends, RavKnitFriends, Google+ Knitting Circle Friends, Twitter Followers and Pinners on Pinterest. I’m no Franklin Habit, but I can aspire.
