Like many things, I started out with a bang! First off, I made a spreadsheet (which was #100) and divided things up into ONE TIME ONLY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY/EVERY OTHER MONTH, QUARTERLY, and then PROJECTS (such as read 30 books, or be vegetarian for 30 days). This was an effort to help keep my to do list organized. Here's the progress:
- ONE TIME ONLY: I have a few that are DONE--one of my husband's best friends mailed us some low flow shower heads, and I did get another car. Then a few things are IN PROGRESS--my clinical hours (on target to be done in January 2010); I've started a list of 100 things I am thankful for; Hubs and I have talked about when we are going to see the Holocaust Museum (plan to this summer after we drop kids off at camp); the debt free plan is in the works; I'm about to deposit more than $500 into the emergency fund; we've purchased paint for the kids' rooms (how do you motivate yourself to paint them now?); and, I have purchased one of the five reusable shopping bags.
- WEEKLY: OK, this was really hard for me and started out really well....I think I had too much to start and was overwhelmed and ended up dropping them all. However, although I will have to donate $5 for each of the weekly items (#101), I still intend to implement these weekly things, just at a slower rate.
- MONTHLY/EVERY OTHER MONTH: see "weekly" above :-( If any of them happened, it was unintentional and not really worth counting!
- QUARTERLY: If I forget about 2008, I can start fresh for 2009 and perhaps actually DO these items!
- PROJECTS: These haven't really begun much, other than revisiting Financial Peace (#60), although we are only beginning the "sticking to a budget". I have been more intentional about commenting on blogs but I haven't officially begun my 90 day project (#98).
