2012 in Review:
Summary: I didn’t realize how much I’d travelled til I wrote this up. I was sick a lot too, and stressed out about my family. But overall it wasn’t a horrible year. And hey, the Mayans were wrong so we get to keep going!
2013 Resolution: Learn one new thing
I’ve been thinking about trying to learn sign language – I’m going to look to see if there are any lessons on Youtube or something. Also, I’ve already signed up for a class on quilting. So this should be a pretty easy resolution to keep, a rebound from last year’s failure.
v Get involved in my community:
Ø Attend neighborhood meetings – they happen once a month, and I’m going to try to go to at least six.
Ø Volunteer – it’s hard to find an opportunity that allows for sporadic volunteering (ie once a month) but I’m going to try again. I found an organization that works toward improving child literacy among immigrant/poverty-level children so I am going to look into that.
v Complete 3 out of the 10 following craft projects:
Ø Tree of Knowledge cross-stitch
Ø S's t-shirt quilt
Ø My College Sweatshirt quilt
Ø 2007 scrapbook
Ø 2008 scrapbook
Ø Nephew’s family tree label
Ø Tribble t-shirt
Ø Cat toy treat dispenser
Ø Framing skeleton cross-stitch
Ø Display for Mom’s scarf pins
v Move craft room upstairs and organize
v Move guest room back and hang Grandmother’s quilt and my sister’s paintings
v Frame and hang photos in bedroom
v Practice the drums with the aim to start taking lessons again.
