30 by 30

Wow, May flew by and June is on it's way! I had a birthday in May and my first official Mother's Day.

I'm not good at New Years Resolutions. I fail forget about them before the first week is over. I'm horrible at any type of habit changing activity. See, I like to track progress, mark things off, see my accomplishments. That's all good, except I have this need to start at the beginning- the beginning of the week, the beginning of the month, the beginning of a challenge... you get it? (Please tell me I'm not alone!) Then when I slip up for a day, week, whatever- I think what's the use?

Well, I made a 30 by 30 list. Kinda a bucket list of things to do before I turn thirty (next May). I guess you can't even call it a bucket list, because it's nothing exciting, just things I have wanted to work on in my life. So, here's my 30 by 30 list (with a couple added in for safe measure):

  1. purge home, clear clutter
  2. make cleaning a habit
  3. make recycling a habit
  4. scan pictures, organize pictures
  5. organize recipes
  6. paint bedroom; decorate
  7. paint living room; decorate
  8. learn how to effective manage household, and time
  9. make wedding album
  10. journal for the boys
  11. journal for my husband
  12. learn how to use my camera, and take more pictures
  13. have monthly date nights with my husband
  14. go on mini-vacation with hubby
  15. go on vacation with the family
  16. read to the boys every day
  17. learn to/teach the kids to pray (and Lord's prayer, and Ten Commandments)
  18. teach my step-daughter to sew and/or encourage her creative interests
  19. implement a budget
  20. start nursing clinicals
  21. manage time better
  22. get up early (like to start day by 6:00)
  23. dress for my hubby more often (less jeans and t-shirts)
  24. style hair more, less ponytails
  25. blog regularly
  26. exercise regularly
  27. craft through books; get rid of books not needed
  28. craft through stash
  29. make a dress, and wear it
  30. start selling on etsy
  31. do a 365 project
  32. have a (semi) handmade Christmas
There it is, my 30 by 30. Here's to hoping I can check it all off!
