So let's review December's goals:
Make a fabulous cake for Ella's birthday party - Bummer... I did make some cute cupcakes though.
Try three new recipes - I've gotta be honest... I could have tried three new recipes, but I don't remember.
Christmas baking/goodie plates - I had the best intentions, I even bought the stuff, but then I just ran out of time.
Take Ella on a date - January is the month. It was kinda hard to do this since we were so busy and when I was planning on shopping it was for Christmas.
Sew a scarf for me... I need something for my stocking too - Nope, but I've got plans for one or two.
Figure out a new budget for 2012 - This is on the calendar for this week.
Let's look at January:
Pack away Christmas decor
Sort through Christmas boxes and purge unused decor
Organize toy room with new toys
Deep clean laundry room
Paint laundry room
Try three new recipes
Gather recipes for family cookbook
Take Ella on a date
Patience, Patience, Patience
Begin organizing craft closet
Work out 2012 budget
Read a book
Give myself permission to take a nap when I'm tired
As you can see, there are quite a few homemaking goals this month. Our house has kinda become a disaster in the last few months and it's time to address that mess. What better time than the beginning of a new year.
