Day 13 - Goals

Well, we're off to a Christmas party tonight (ha ha...yes Jason's work has their Christmas party in the new year. It's kinda nice because it's not one more thing to add to December's calendar!) so I thought I'd post day 13 early (shocking, I know!) Day 13 is goals. I have lots of goals and dreams and aspirations. Here are a few I'll share with you - in no particular order:

1. Make this stay at home Mom thing work! I don't forsee this one being too tough, but it will be an adjustment. We've always been used to 1 1/2 to 2 salaries (not that we needed them but the extras were fun!) so it'll just be some adjusting the way we think. Right now I'm still getting mat leave pay so we haven't had to entirely adjust yet. That's coming up in a couple of months.

2. Renovate my kitchen. I don't like it's lack of storage, tiny fridge and dishwasher, lack of light...I have great plans to open up the space and make it beautiful, it just takes money! It will come eventually and I can't wait to cook on a full size stove!

3. Travel with my kids. I got to see so much as a youngster travelling with my parents and I want the same thing for my kids. I want them to see the mountains and the ocean and the plains and everything in between (or as much as we can!) We've started this and have plans for a couple of big trips in the next few years so we're on our way! I'd also love to take them on a missions trip when they're a bit older, just so they can experience what other people who are not so fortunate, live like!

4. Finish my nephew's afghan. I'm so close but I tend to end up scrapping rather than cross-stitching and I really need to rectify that!

I can't think of anything else major off the top of my head. Those are some of my big goals and dreams for the next several years and we'll see how they all work out.

Until next time...

  1. Sandra, good luck with your goals this year! I love your idea of a Mission trip, so many kids don't get to see how the other world lives, including mine. I think if more kids saw this the world would be a better place for the up and coming generations. Too many things are taken for granted now a days.
