Don't just live in the world

Getting it done in 2012

May 15th, 2012 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal

It’s been quite a while since I looked at these goals and I think a few things may have changed… In fact, I’m pretty sure that the last time I looked at this list we weren’t even thinking of buying any houses and I don’t think I was on my way to quitting my job either…

Organize the next book swap

Organize a knit-in afternoonKnit

  • Finish the second sock
  • sweater for Joe
  • sweater for myself
  • adorable baby things
  • Next pair of socks

Potty train the monkey – in progress, except for her insistence on being a baby

Get to 175 lbs

  • Get back to yoga
  • Get back on the treadmill (At least 15 minutes every day)
  • Add some strength exercises
  • Have a consistent meal plan
  • Freezer cooking
  • Get sugary treats out of the house (again)
  • Give up pop (again)

Write, whenever and wherever

  • Blog
  • Contribute to other blogs
  • Finish two of the books in my children’s book series (with illustrations)
  • Try to find an agent or publisher
  • Research self publishing
  • Re-draft article outline and draft introduction

Read – I added a page to the site to track the books I read through the year

Improve my French

Let my nails grow – I was doing alright, and then we moved and stress piled up

Make bread – I used to do this when I was a kid and it was always fun, and it makes the house smell good too

And a few things to add:

  • Network – go to events, use LinkedIn, build a profile and get work
  • Throw myself into projects – Get passionate about what I’m doing for myself and my family
  • Launch and get other women interested in what I’m doing
  • Play with my kid
  • Cook and bake and fall in love with it again
