Continue good habits established in 2009- I did pretty well, those things (for the most part) have pretty much become habit.
Take care of and enjoy the things I already have.
- using craft and other project supplies I already have, making use of free things (like the library for example), taking full advantage of the memberships/passes that we've already paid for, taking care of our house (improvements/maintenance)
Ask myself each day if what I'm doing is going to help us get closer to our financial goals.
Take time each day to do fun things, even if it's just for a few minutes.
Get to the root of my bad eating habits. Learn the principles of good nutrition and apply them in my life.
-reading nutrition text book, reading other good information from the library and online, also continuing to exercise consistently
Find more opportunities to give service
-complete at least two blankets for Project Linus using yarn/fabric I already have, look for other service opportunities (especially ones I can involve the kids in)
I made one blanket but haven't donated it yet. I got involved with the PTA this school year. This Christmas we participated in some donation things above our usual getting rid of stuff donations to charities. I don't know that I really got the kids involved in service like I wanted to.
Get our emergency preparations in place
-work on our year supply of food by getting enough grain to complete 1 year long-term food storage for one person (or 3 mo for our whole family, it's the same thing).
-make a will by the end of February
Projects we hope to complete in 2010
making slipcovers for our freecycle sectional couch that we did
fixing/painting the lower kitchen cabinets also done
new kitchen countertop that was done in June
new flooring on the main floor didn't do this one, but we did replace the flooring in the basement instead. We bought laminate flooring for the main floor though and we should be starting that project next month.
improving the drainage and grading of our swamp backyard We took some steps to help this out, we've got more to do back there though.
exterior painting done
some interior painting Don't know exactly to what this was referring but I definitely did some interior painting this year, and not just because the neighbor sent 6" bolts through our shared wall.
