Well, my last post talked about how I either succeeded, failed, or stalled in my personal 2014 Resolutions. Though I had many a failure, I’ve decided to create a list of goals for 2015. These are mostly crafty (as I’m mostly a craft blogger) but not all are.
1. Knit my son a sweater.
I’ve knit Belly so many items now. It’s embarrassing that my son is enthused about my knitting, yet has none of it besides a well loved hat.
2. Knit my son a pair of socks.
See text under point 1. He’s such a good kid.
3. Knit my super secret project that I’ll tell you all about at a later time.
It’s secret. Super secret. I really really really need to work on it.
4. SEW THAT FIRST DAMNED QUILT. At least the quilt top. Please?
I know that once I get the top done, my friend Connie will help me with the quilting, so let’s get to it! I want to make many!
5. Knit my daughter and I matching socks.
I have the perfect yarn for it.
6. Go the the hair-dresser at least every two months for both a hair trim and a eyebrow waxing.
This is a very specific step in self-care and I think I need more specific steps instead of “treat yo self” which I fail on.
7. See the doctor for a check up before 2016.
Yeah, another specific step. I haven’t seen a doctor for a year and a half now.
8. Play with my children more. Seriously, at least an hour a day. Pure play. Imaginative play.
I tend to read to them or talk with them or let them play together but for some reason imaginative play tends to bore me at times even though I’m a very imaginative person.
I need to get on this.
9. Make my son at least three costumes. Make at least one for my daughter.
He turned to me recently and asked, “Why don’t you make me the stuff I ask you to make me?” DAGGER TO THE HEART, MOM.
10. Knit one stuffie. Sew one stuffie.
I can do this. It’s easy. I can do it.
11. Back my snowman blanket. Bind it.
Not going to lie, I’m dreading this one, but I know it’s something I’ll love when done.
12. Finish the Roses of Sharon. Do one Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery pattern.
This is my year to finish it. I can feel it!
13. Date night — once a month with my husband.
Treat yo self now that your children are getting older and less fearsome to leave with family or babysitters.
14. Get more decor for house.
Last year, while decorating the house for Halloween I turned to my husband and said, “I have completely failed to buy decorations or decor for our house as I once planned to do. I need to get on that.” I do.
15. More pictures.
Take more. Process more. More videos too.
