Getting it done 5

August 4th, 2011 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal

I’ve been following Lara and Sara, and now Vicky while they post their lists of things they need to accomplish, things they’ve been meaning to accomplish for a while. I have a list, and it would be great to have some place to track it, update it and to put things as I remember them, so here we are. Not all of these are of major importance and I will be adding more as I go along (and some of things are things that I’m reminding Joe to do):

Fix up the bikes so we can actually ride this summer

Get a ticket for the Social Capital Conference

Arrange a date night (with babysitter)

Organize a book swap in Ottawa – July 31 at the Elmdale Tavern, 2-5 pm  A smashing success, we have to do it again

See Harry Potter

Weed the garden (started by Joe)

Knit a shawl for my mother (in progress)

Knit a sweater for Joe (in progress, but barely)

Go to a FatCats game

Find a fall activity for the kid – waiting for the city’s fall activity guide Looks like we might register her in Indoor Soccer and Skating lessons, but we have to wait for January starts

Schedule a physical

Get through my at work to do list (progress stalled)

Back up my computer

Organize the laundry room

Organize the storage

Hold a garage sale – Lara has been harassed, planning has begun

Organize the kid’s wardrobe and figure out what she needs

Check the air pressure in the tires

Schedule the facial to use my Groupon

Make brunch reservations at Le Cafe to use our LivingSocial deal

Renew Joe’s passport

Learn more about Google+

Change my LinkedIn profile picture

Actually do something on my Pinterest ‘Things to Make board
Get the car serviced
Potty train the monkey – in progress
Check out Teksavvy
Go to the Running Room to check out new shoes
Attend at least one of the Capital City Derby Dolls’ open houses
Thoroughly clean the house

My other goals for 2011 include:

  • Hitting 175 lbs – and then to keep going
  • Being able to make it all the way to my 10th floor office on the stairs
  • Consistently having a meal plan so that the whole family is eating healthy food
  • Continue to test my knitting skills in my project choices
  • Make my way through my ‘to read’ pile (my ever-expanding ‘to-read’ pile)
  • Build up my profile at work
  • Keep blogging, keep tweeting, maintain my connections
  • Organize the second annual Road Hockey Showdown
  • Improve my French
  • I really, really need to stop biting my nails. It looks bad, it hurts, and there’s no reason for it.
