    New Year's Resolutions 2016

    I imagine many of us aren't working tomorrow and need more OT threads.

    Here is last year's - how did you do?

    What is on your list for this year?

    Great idea. Z is doing better except when she has a cold. I don't think I stitched at all.


    I think I would like to run more than a mile. I need to run more than once every couple of weeks.

    Re: New Year's Resolutions 2016

    My list from last year -

    1. Build a house! - done!
    2. Move into house! - done!
    3. Hit the equity number we want to hit - exceeded by 2%, done!
    4. Make neighbor friends - we met one family and said hi to another, does that count? Mostly fail.
    5. Host things at new house - options include house-warming party, Xmas, NYE - hosted something in July, hosting NYE tomorrow, done! The major goal of this was to be more social and make friends. That has gone very well this year.
    6. Start new cross stitch (after finishing current one) It's like 30 pages total, I think and I got 4 done so that is good. This got delayed (similar to last year) by the announcement of an impending niece or nephew. So I switched projects in July.
    7. Work goals - I think I mostly did this. Great reviews and getting involved in some new things. Some stuff I've worked on going over very well.
    8. Goal Weight - maintained, but not achieved
    9. Hit max level for Target gift cards - done!
    10. Weekend/day trips to pretty WI areas. That WI from above show has me wanting to visit all the neat local places - we went to one place, womp womp. And it was actually on the IA side so yeah.

    Re: New Year's Resolutions 2016

    I have a big list each year so I always enjoy seeing what ends up happening.

    2016 list -

    Get new vehicle for husband (anyone got comments on Nissan Murano sized vehicles? Not that one specifically, but that category)
    Get IRA opened finally and set up to be funded to round out our three fund strategy
    Order some wedding pics and ****, hang that and other **** we have on our empty walls
    Paint undetermined number of rooms in our house
    More Landscaping - finish trees, do some bushes and other flowers
    Meet/get to know neighbors
    Complete cross stitch for niece/nephew arriving soon
    Get 6 more pages of other cross stitch done
    Work promotion/get excellent reviews
    Try new recipes
    Get to goal weight
    Day trips or potential road trip
    Bigger vacation, possibly.
    I should throw in a number of books to read goal but I'll wait.

    We had a CR-V and we just loved it. We had to trade it in for a mini-van (just far more practical), but they're really good vehicles.

    Re: New Year's Resolutions 2016

    I'm going alcohol free until at least spring break. Brother has a bachelor party in June, so I may want to build my alcohol tolerance back up a bit beforehand first.




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    hmm, the goal would be for it to be able to handle having two kids at least for a short while. Not that that's in the plan soon, but we would like to keep this vehicle for many years and don't plan to replace mine for at least 4-5 (at which time we are thinking it would be minivan should child-having occur by then). I've heard lots of good things about the CR-V, just have wondered if it would be a bit small.
