28 Goals


I'm not going to call them New Year's Resolutions, but here are 28 goals for the year.  I'm a realist these aren't all going to happen.  But, here we go! Maybe writing things down and putting them out there will inspire me to make good on them...for each thing I have crossed off the list by 2013 I am going to reward myself though.  Not sure what the reward will be yet.  Do you reward yourself for meeting goals?

Update 2/21/12: 
#5 - What is the opposite of progress? The plant I have had for 5 years that could be better described as tortured rather than living or dead...is well dead.  I tried to cut it back to see if I could bring it back to life and it didn't pull through.  So to complete this goal I will have to get a new plant.

#22 - Okay I can't palm the ground yet, but I can touch the floor now with my fingertips! That is what they call progress my friend.

#25 - Pretty easy to check on, but so far I am doing good on this one.

#26 - I made something I found on pinterest yesterday!
