Weekend update: How R U doing on your 2010 goals?

On Monday's I usually update the millions three of you who regularly visit on what I did over the weekend.  Unless you want to hear about how I made ice cream out of snow than that post would be really short.

You'd think my house would be cleaner seeing as I've been spending A LOT of time here.

Anyway, since it is the 15th of February and about 6 weeks into the new year I thought I would update you on how fantastic mediocre I am doing on my 2010 goals.

  • Write more. I wanted to reach 10,000 words on my young adult novel in 2009. I didn't. In 2010, I want to surpass that goal and then some.  Still sucking up on this goal.  You'd think I'd be more disciplined but alas I'm not and I like to watch TV.

  • Craft more. I spend far too much time on this computer and not enough time in my craft room.  I'm doing a little better on this one.  I made my daughter's birthday book and I made some invitations for the movie party we will soon have for Big G.

  • Yell less. I was doing okay until all the f**kin' snow.

  • Eat better. See answer above.

  • Walk more. I'm going to invest in a good step counter and try to reach 10,000 steps a day. (That counts as exercise, right?)  I bought a step counter at Stuff*Mart for $5.00; it sucked.  It fell off my pants and landed in the snow.  It reset itself all the time and I gave it to my kids.

  • Eliminate some clutter. I cleaned out the closets.  I guess that counts.

  • Get Organized: ROFLMAO

  • Quality time: Spend some time alone with each kid and my husband once a month.  The blizzards have kind of forced my hand on this one.  It was hard to be alone with anyone, but we've spent a lot of time together.  Maybe even too much.  LOL

  • See family. More than just the holidays.  I've seen my mom and her husband; and my in-laws have been out to visit.  As for me making plans to see them...I'm striking out.  However, I think at least a handful of them will be out again at the end of the month to celebrate Big G's birthday.

  • Plan some day trips. does making my husband drive to swim lessons and taking us all to lunch on Saturday count as a day trip?  We HAD to get out of the house!

So how are you doing with your 2010 goals?
