Don't just live in the world

Getting it Done

November 7th, 2011 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal



  • Organize the next book swap
  • Knit a shawl for my mother (in progress, for Christmas, going pretty well, but #NaNoWriMo might throw me off my deadline)
  • Knit a sweater for Joe (in progress, but barely, poor Joe)
  • Knit a sweater for myself (now on the needles)
  • Use my Photobook Groupon
  • Renew Joe’s passport
  • Potty train the monkey – in progress
  • Attempt freezer cooking
  • Get back to yoga
  • Organize my home office/craft space  It’s not perfect, but it doing better. I’ve got some yarn to get rid of, and I’m thinking of getting rid of the sewing machine that I haven’t touched in about two years
  • Get back on the treadmill – I did, and then I got sick and now it’s been three days, so I’m not letting myself off the hook for this one
  • Write for my three special projects – see, the problem with being vague is that I don’t remember which three I was referring to. I’m writing every day, doing pretty well for #NaBloPoMo, #NaNoWriMo, and there are two other things I haven’t done in too long
  • Get down on the floor and play with my daughter Again, something I’m not done doing, but the kid and I crafted a lot on the weekend. I got her into the paints and we decorated a foam tree and made some ornaments for the grandparents. Definitely something we’ll be doing more.

I feel as though there are things I should be adding to this list, but I can’t think of any right now, I’m sure I’ll come up with more before next week.

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 – We did a lot better this week, but I’m worry about next week because Joe will be away and I’m not sure what I’m going to be able to handle
  • Continue to test my knitting skills in my project choices
  • Make my way through my ‘to read’ pile (my ever-expanding ‘to-read’ pile) – I haven’t started a new book since I finished Flash and Bones. I need to pick one and get started.
  • Build up my profile at work – Oh work, what is going on there?
  • Keep blogging, keep tweeting, maintain my connections
  • Organize the second annual Road Hockey Showdown
  • Improve my French
