Simple and Sweet - Triumph!

I've been cleaning off my desk. I found on my desk a jotted list of things I hoped to do month by month in 2011. I have looked at the list when I have found it over the passed year. I am grateful for what did get accomplished and a sweet man to support me in getting them done.
A screen at the Phoenix Science Museum - It took a cool family picture.
 If it is in purple it happened or even cooler I blogged about it. If it is in black it was a no go...
  • January - Pancake Breakfast (tune piano & buy Joy School curriculum - our first lesson from the bought curriculum)
  • February - Nothing written down
  • March - Underfoot's birthday party (cake recipes used - Applesauce Cake, Caramel Devil Food's Cake, and Sour Cream Cake) and Spring Break - Idaho (kind of happened when we surprised my parents at Easter - only 72 hours)
  • April - Easter
  • May - Swim Lessons
  • June - Swim lesson and Locey Reunion
  • July - Kirkham Reunion
  • August - Joy School Curriculum
  • September - Nothing written down
  • October - Family Pictures and Fake Grass (A philosophy changed happened this month.)
  • November - Pie Party - last picture
  • December - Christmas Advent with Pictures Books - Advent Jesse Tree
Usually I'm not very realistic about the goals I write down. The list goes on sometimes for pages. This simple list happened even though I didn't blog about all of them. Yippee!

Happy New Year to your next year's dream, hopes, and adventures!!!

This is a great idea. I should write down some of the things that I hope to do this year too. It probably would make me about 50% more likely to do them and that is a pretty good percentage!!!

GREAT JOB, Wendy! I love doing things one month at a time. It's easier for me to focus on what I need to do in that season...instead of for an entire year!

A very productive year for you!
