Hey hey, guess what time it is.  I’m halfway to 26 with less than half of my goals checked off!  Tell me, is that normal?  So far I have learned that even though I have these things on my to-do list, it is hard to actually cross them off.  I’m certain I will be finishing the needlepoint aspect of my one stocking by the end of this month, and I wish I could be sending my latest book out, but am waiting for some people to read/critique it.  As for Facebook, that somehow is a losing battle haha.

I’ll be sure to share the goals I cross off as I find the time to complete them.  Really craving that stationery as well as a toaster.



  1. so funny, I’ve been working on an update of my 27 goals too!

    1. How have you done? 😉
