2013 New Year’s To-Do List

Happy New YearA 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.

    So what do you plan on doing the other 9 months of the year? I like my list better, it was much easier to accomplish. Besides, I can’t make a list more than a week or two in advance because I’m that type that tries to get everything done at once. My next project this week is chopping up the leyland cypress tree that broke off at the base last week during a storm. The darn thing was 30 foot tall and is laying in the back yard waiting for me. There is still 3 section about 12 feet tall still standing that got to come down also. Sounds like a great cruise planned. I took many of them to Hawii in my younger days. They were not fun at all, all work. The Navy never seemed to get the swimming pool and bars on board.

  2. You should have made your suggestions to your superior officers. I’m sure they would have cut up the flight deck just for you:-). We cut up half our Christmas tree from last year and burned it in the fireplace over the weekend. Half of it is still back there waiting and this weekend this year’s tree will join it. Pine burns real nice. I especially love the whoosh as the needles catch fire. I’m sure that’s what took my hubby’s eyebrows. I’m just trying to figure out if it’ll be warm enough to swim when we get to Hawaii. I don’t like to swim until the pool temp is 80 degrees. We’ve never gone on a cruise before but hubby got sea sick deep sea fishing in the Atlantic so I’m thinking patches. Have you used your Christmas gun yet?

      We get our gun Friday and Beth can’t wait to let er’ loose.
      More than likely on a big cruise liner you will never even know your at sea as far as motion is concerned unless you hit really bad weather. Of course an aircraft carrier is a little bigger and I never even felt the motino of the waves on those. The cruiser and ammo supply ship I was on you felt rough weather.
      You know the cruise ships do everything they can to ensure a smooth ride.
      It will be warm enough to swim in Hawii. Why do you think the winter is their biggest tourist season. I’ve never been crazy about swimming in the ocean anyway. Like you I want the water to be 80 degrees also. When we visit the outer banks we swim in the sound because it is so shallow the water is pretty warm. If you got the time visit the Arizona Memorial. It’s worth the effort to get out there and just think about what happened.

  3. Yep, got the tour planned and we’re gonna visit the USS Missouri. My uncle was there when the harbor was bombed (he survived, but many of his buddies didn’t) so I’m going to pay my respects.
    Besides, it’s the Arizona. I can’t go and not visit the ship named after my state. I also wanna zip line over the jungle but that’s gonna take time to find where and how we can do that.
