How I did last year….

Personal 
Read 48 Kindle books and 12 paperbooks – I think I did about half of what I intended.
Establish Flylady schedule for cleaning – I tried several ways to get cleaning done consistently.  I have yet to find that one that works the best for us.
Memorize Psalm 37 - 1 verse a week. – I wish I could memorize better. I did the first 2 verses.
Write first draft of book - 2 chapters a month – I never wrote a thing. I am now not sure I can. The memories too painful and I still see no end to the pain that prompted me to want to write in the first place.
Organize my Documents folder -1 subject a week until finished. – This I actually DID!
Upload pictures for printing - delete pictures that are un-usable-1 year a month – I did this for about ½ of pictures.
Complete 1 sewing/craft project a month – I think I did maybe 3. Including dresses for the girls which in all honest was the BEST project this year.
Use 1 Kindle devotional book a month. – I did 2 I think. I need to do better.

Marriage

Strive for 2 dates a month – We did pretty good until this summer.
Pray together for the kids – We still need to work on this.
Listen/Read through the Bible in a year – I think we only did a few months. Disappointing that it is so hard to keep up.

Children/Homeschooling

Do 1 fun outing/activity per month –  We did a few. So better then last year!
Teach each child a new recipe they can make on their own – I did a few things. I wish I had taken more time to help my younger daughter to help. 
Establish game night – I did this quite often. Even though it was kinda a mess sometimes we still had fun.
Teach Ashlianna to sew. – I still need to do this. I’m a terrible teacher.
Print out week school schedule for EACH child. -I actually did this! It works so much better to print out a schedule for each child.

Ministry/Family
 
Write a "love" note each week – I think I was good if I did it once a month. I’m terrible at this.
Visit Grandpa once a month – I did it maybe 4 times.
Help or serve someone in the community or church – I started doing Ruby’s Pantry every month. Finally a way to serve the community.
Call/Talk to my brother once a week. – I am going to admit.. I don’t. I wish I did. I’m a terrible sister.

Blogging

Weekly Goals – I did this!
Weekly or Bi-Weekly menus – DONE!
Monthly Goals- DONE!
Try a 1 new recipe a month and blog about it – I did a few but not as many as I liked.
48 Book reviewsI didn’t do 48 but I think I did better this past year.
12 DIY projects and blog about them – I think I did a few but never blogged about them. Oops.
1 Family Blog post a week – I didn’t even do one. I’m so embarrassed.
