A new year to think of things I want to accomplish. This year apparently I plan to drive myself to a nervous breakdown by listing way too much stuff. Of course, in keeping with my usual lists I don’t always get everything done and that’s alright. I can live with it.
So here is my list of things to do in 2013.
1–Make 12 pair of pajama bottoms. Yep, just the bottoms. Apparently I have a crop of bean poles, so their bottoms end up being very short and need replacing before the tops.
2–Make the tailored retro dresses my oldest picked out to replace the boxy ones from last year.
3–write 5 books. Wow, this is ambitious. 1 Redaction novel, 1 Syn-En book, 1 Blue book and the New Years book that’s under contract. Keeping my options open in case the Redaction novel requires another book to complete the series.
4–Read 52 fun books. I miss reading.
5–read 12 craft/writing/business books. This tends to mess up the writing but there’s some books out there that seem promising and they’re waiting for me on my kindle.
6–Walk 45 minutes on the treadmill 5 times a week. Really, this is how I plan to work in those novels. The dog is not happy but he still gets his 30 minute walk in the morning with me.
7–finish #1 oldest daughter and #1 Son’s quilts. (Like a bad penny this just keeps returning)
8–scrapbook 2 years of photos. This one may be an excuse to get more scrapbook stuff from Michael’s and Joann’s.
9–Make a Halloween Costume for our 25th wedding anniversary cruise to Hawaii. Ooh, that is going to be fun.
10–Finished cross-stitching my Christmas stocking. Talk about a bad penny, I started this in 1989. Since everyone else in my family has a cross-stitched stocking, I think I should have one before the family starts expanding again.
