I'll start with stitching goals since those are pretty easy:
The Awakening--I'd like to finish this piece. If I do two pages a month, I can get it done.
Maggie the Messmaker--This is a UFO I've lost interest in stitching but would still like to finish. I know how gorgeous it will look. I have three UFOs, but it's only realistic to set one as a finishing goal, I think.
Frame pieces--I have lots of pieces waiting to be framed, so I'd like to get some of those on the wall, especially my Teresa Wentzlers.
The life goals are harder:
Lose weight--Yes, I've been trying to do this my whole life. I have to do it. So many things are waiting on this one thing, and I'm not getting any younger. I'd like to see Europe and Disney World again, and I can't do that as fat as I am.
Get pregnant--This depends on losing weight too. I'd be miserable if I were both fat and pregnant, but since I'm 37, I need to get going on this. I need to make a concerted effort to track my ovulation days.
Move into a new house--We want to get out of this neighborhood and buy a piece of land. I think selling this house and not taking a loss will be a challenge. There are 18 houses for sale already, and it's the off season. We need to get the house cleaned and painted and get the house listed ASAP. I hate living here, and it's stressing me out.
Work--Keep up with work stuff better and be more responsible.
So, in order to lose weight, I plan to join Weight Watchers and start riding the exercise bike. My foot's not up to using the tread mill yet. I've never been able to sustain exercise, so I need to work on strategies. Maybe I'll make friends at WW.
2006 was a pretty crappy year for us. We lost Horus, our dear kitty, suddenly. I think that was the hardest part for me. My grandmother passed away, which was hard, but she was old and had Alzheimers, and when things are that bad, passing is a mercy. The same holds true for Matt's mom's passing, but that was not easy either. I can't imagine losing my mother, and I know it was really hard on Matt. We also lost Karma, my dog who was staying with my mom, to a car accident, which was very traumatic for my mom. A lot of other things have gone wrong for us too, like my broken toe and Matt's month-long virus. None of them have been earth shattering, but the sheer volume has just weighed us down. I really hope 2007 is better.
And on that note--
Happy New Year!
