New Year's Eve


My friend Jenn posted this quiz over at TSR and I thought it was beautiful:

One year from today, I hope to have:

Learned- To use Photo Shop. (I know, I should say something profound but I really want to learn PS)

Changed- my hair color at least three times.

Figured out- How to get Brayden to focus, Avery to read (for pleasure) and Trenton to slow down when he eats.

Completed- a 5K

Stopped- Taking pain meds

Started- Drawing and painting

Acquired-A little note from the bank saying our 2nd Mortgage is paid in full

Given up- Questioning my abilities as an artist, crafter and writer. Such a waste of time.

Visited- My friends in PDX and maybe my new friends in AZ.

Left behind- Concerns about my spine, for good.

Leave a comment filling in the list with your answers :-)

Come join me on a year-long adventure through the alphabet. For starters, CLICK HERE and visit the website I started to share ideas.

Don't know what I'm talking about? The posts are HERE and HERE.

It's going to be a blast!

One year from today, I hope to have:

Learned- How to focus on things that matter

Changed- my exercise habits (in that I need some!)

Figured out- A way to get Grace to sleep, Hayden to feel confident, and Bayley to relax more

Completed- 2 novels

Stopped- Obsessing about weight

Started- Sleeping 8 hours a night (see Figured Out for a clue as to why I'm sleep deprived)

Acquired- A hot tub. Yep, that's the first thing that came to mind, Not a SUV for Jeff or the piano I claim to want. Saw that and thought - hot tub.

Given up- Fast food, because upon examination, it's disgusting. It doesn't matter if the kids like Happy Meals. I can buy them the toy for $1.

Visited- At least 2 National Parks.

Left behind- Weight issues, for good.

What a great list you have! I wholeheartedly wish that you accomplish everything on your list this year :)
Start out with Photoshop Elements, you may feel that you don't even need the full blown PS!
