-Ask for help and be specific
-Build and utilize my networks
-Trust that most answers are already within myself.
-Embrace today. It’s the only one I’ve got.
Only I can articulate what I most want out of life.
Top Ten Goals:
1. Heal my knee and embrace an active lifestyle.
In a way, I have graduated from physical therapy! I have a follow-up appointment in a month, but at my appointment last week I was released. It is going to remain very important to keep up with my exercises and to get back into taking my fish oil supplements. I do feel like I’m already embracing a more active lifestyle and can’t wait to get into more of our ‘summer’ activities.
2. Get a bike.
Nope, not yet.
3. Write a will with J.
Nope, not yet.
4. Apply to graduate school – Completed 4/5/13
The final pieces took a little longer than I was originally wanting, but I submitted my application! Now I just need to follow up with two of my references, argh. And figure out if there is a way to appeal the decision that won’t allow in-state tuition, double-argh.
5. Grow a vegetable garden.
I suppose I can’t quite call this done, because we don’t have any plants or seeds outside yet. But we have the raised beds in place, filled with a compost/topsoil mixture. We have the seeds. We have tomatoes and onions started in pots. Our plan is to plant the next round of things directly in the ground, probably this weekend, barring any catastrophic weather predictions. Yay!
6. Cook at least one incredible meal each month, documenting the progress, and compiling a photo recipe book at the end of the year.
Errrm, this isn’t going quite like I thought it would.
7. Celebrate our fifth anniversary in May in a cool and special way.
We got back from our trip, and it was wonderful! But because our anniversary isn’t still for another couple of weeks, I’m not going to say this is complete. Room for even more things to have happen! :)
8. Make a vision board – completed 3/24/13
9. Get our house in tip-top shape.
So my to-do list is growing, and I’m not sure what thing to start with first. We got the house all cleaned up right before our trip, but our lazy habits are already returning…eep! My aunt and uncle get to town this weekend, so I have more reason to get things looking really nice!
10. Send out Christmas cards.
Not there yet (obviously), but we might have picture contenders.
