New Year, New Resolutions

I need to revisit the resolutions that I made for 2010 and see how well I did.

GOALS for 2010

1. Organize closets and cabinets – Definitely start to purge items by having a yard sale. I definitely did a lot of organizing. I went through the whole house and finished the basement and garage, the first floor is finished except for the kitchen, the second floor is complete, but I still need to do the attic. I did not have a yard sale, but have things ready for one.

2. Update my blog once a week.I did not necessarily post once a week, but I did make up for it in other weeks. I had 56 blog posts for the year.

3. I will not buy any new yarn from January through April and buy sparingly the rest of the year. – Well, that didn’t happen.

4. Knit 12 pairs of socks – I only did 8 pairs of socks. I got slowed down because of work.

5. Finish some UFO’s – At least 9 items – That didn’t happen either.

6. Knit a clapotis – Didn’t happen

7. Lose weight and exercise – I did join a fitness center, but gained any weight back I lost this past year.

8. Read 65 books – I read 76 books

9. Clean off old computers and recycle them as well as some old printers. – I did do that, but need to do some more.

GOALS for 2011

1. Finish organizing closets and cabinets and purge items

2. Update blog at least once a week

3. Knit 12 pairs of socks
