December Goals

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

I will be honest - I have pretty much missed the mark on about 50% of the goals I have made the past few months, but regardless, they provide me with something to think about. Something to do when, or if, I ever have spare time again.. so I will continue, and try to do better for December. I want to end the year on a high note, after all.
2013 is almost over, can you believe that? This year has truly been a blur - we have gotten married after over 6 years, my husband and I both received promotions at work, and we bought our first home. All in all, 2013 has been a good year so far!
#1. Read More
Since I failed at reading 2 new books for November's goals, I am going to put this as a generic, do what I can with what time I have type of goal. No specifics. I do want to read more this month and if I can find a few books that capture my interest, it can easily happen!
#2. Schedule blog posts
I would like to have, for the month of December, at least 5 posts scheduled on my blog at any given time. I find I have periods where I have zero inspiration, and then periods where I have absolutely no time to sit down and write - scheduling helps a lot, but I would like to have more posts ready to go for the blog this month, because I know it will be hectic with the holidays!
#3. Reconfigure our household monthly budget
We recently had an increase in pay for my husband, and an increase in bill payments. Things will need to be reworked out. I find it so hard to make a strict budget, when it isn't just me spending money, but we will work out a new budget and adjust as necessary.
#4. Reorganize my office, jewellery supplies and inventory
This feels like it's a never ending project every few months, but, it needs to be done. I hate to have a messy workspace and it is in dire need of some more organization.
#5. Have a Overnight getaway or Spa day with my husband
As a treat for ourselves, right before the holidays, I'm planning a little trip away - closeby, maybe overnight, maybe to a spa. We will see, but I want to do something to unwind and relax for the holiday season, and I think we both need it!


  1. ooh a spa day/getaway sounds awesome. it gets so busy/stressful during the holidays so it would be nice to have a little something to look forward to. and I really need to work on a new budget for us as well. it can be a pain but so much better when you have a plan.

  2. Something that's helped me to read more this year (which has been my goal forever) is to just set the resolution to read two chapters of any book on most days. It's the funniest thing, but in doing this, I have read more in one year than I have in the past two years combined. And it's just two chapters a day! Anyway, just something else to think about :)

    Also, I love for any budgeting stuff :)

  3. I am a huge failure at reading lately! My teen bookworm self will be so disappointed in me. I want that spa getaway too!
