7 Jan 2013
2013. I like the sound of that. We had a little informal survey this year over which is better: odd years or even years. I am firmly in the odd camp, even if I’m in the minority. And I’m so excited about this year. I’ve been keeping my goals to about 4 for each year, and then a good handful for each month, and I love it. Big yearly goals tend to get lost in the shuffle, so it works best for me if I can count them on one hand. Here goes!
2. Keep up the C & E Book Club. I use the term book club very loosely. Basically, Eric and I really love reading the same book and then discussing it. He reads mostly non-fiction, and I read mostly fiction, so when our reading Venn diagrams overlap, it is always really fun. He’s just absolutely my favorite person to talk to, especially about books, so I want to make sure we get to that this year.
3. Try some completely new crafts. I love making things, if that wasn’t obvious enough already, but I feel like in the last few months I’ve mostly been hopping between knitting and beading, and I want to try some things I’ve never done before. Like quilting. And cross stitching. And whatever else strikes my fancy. So excited!
4. Exercise. As I said before, this will probably be an eternal goal for me because I am not one of those people who just itches to head to the gym every morning. I have to prioritize it, but I always feel so glad I have done it. I know it’s good for me, and it’s wonderful to feel like I’m taking good care of myself.
That’s it for me! What are your goals for 2013?
