1. Blog everyday:
I did this one, but I don't think I would do it again. I will for sure set a weekly blog goal because in some ways it made me feel more present in my life. But my blog metrics reveal that this exercise was BORING for all f you.
2. No FB 9-5 M-F:
I am doing so much better with my FB addiction. I deleted the app, and I am rarely on FB except on my computer. But. I am on Instagram all the effing time. So.
3. Read 100 books:
Um, nailed this one out of the park. I am going t up the ante for next year for sure.
4. Read Poetry:
This was such a good one for me.
5. Table Setting:
I bought chargers. And used them! Yes!
6. Book plot/writing:
I really sucked it up on this one. I need to brainstorm ways to break this goal down and add it to my 2019 list.
7. Print Pics:
8. Track Spending:
9. Post on Insta and 1SE:
I slacked on 1 SE, and Insta stories really slowed down my normal picture posting. But I am not going to resolve to do MORE on social media because that would literally be fucking nuts.
10: Have a dinner party:
Thanksgiving? Does that count?
11. Let the kids entertain more at home:
12. Write poetry:
13. Volunteer for candidates:
Well, I watched the kids while Ben did this. And did it so well, I might add.
14. Clean the closet + maintain it:
YES. But it has fallen all the hell in the last few weeks because of all the presents.
15. Family movie night:
LOVE this one, and so do the kids. Ben is not a huge fan because of all of the squabbling, but for me, there's nothing better than a good candy binge followed by passing out on the couch at like 6:30pm.
16. Paint the downstairs and fix the bathroom:
We actually thought about doing this one the day after Thanksgiving. But so far, no go. We are getting to a point where we need to do a few things around the house (which turns EIGHT this year), so I hope to see more like this on next year's list.
17. Harmonious mornings:
This is WAY BETTER. I no longer make the mistake of checking Harry's learning management cite in the morning. And I have learned through trial and much error that the kids need to lay their clothes out the night before (this is not rocket science; I know) and even though I HATE working out first thing in the morning, I need to get on the machine before 6 am if I want my day to be smooth.
18: More date nights:
Can I just say, this was an inspired goal. We have had so much fun spending time with friends or just with each other. I want more social goals on my list for next year because sometimes I just retreat into my book and coach cave (where I am super happy), but I need to get out more, literally.
I freaking LOVE resolutions, so you can be sure I will trot some out for the new year. Any ideas you're working on??
