2014 Goals: Progress Report #2

I can't believe we're already halfway through 2014! Time goes so much faster when you're an adult. I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked with my goals so far, only crossing off three more things. But I'm hoping the next three months go well and I'll be able to cross some more things off by my next check-in.

1. Learn to parallel park My sister Jackie taught me while in Seattle, although I need to keep practicing!
2. Get a will made up
3. Make a roman shade for the laundry room
4. Have a successful herb garden In progress and so far, so good.
5. Visit Seattle We went the end of April and it was awesome! To read more about it, click here.
6. Gain 5 pounds While my weight has fluctuated a little over the past few months, I am still keeping that extra 5lbs on and hoping to continue to gain.
7. Volunteer with a local charity/group I have been volunteering with the local Alzheimer Society since March.
8. Learn to knit socks I finished my very first pair the beginning of March! To see pictures, click here.
9. Plant a new shade tree
10. Run another 5k
11. Read 20 books I've already reached this goal! It could have something to do with me starting the Harry Potter books and not being able to stop...
12. Put an extra $5,000 on the mortgage
13. Join a local knitting group I'll probably take a break during the summer but will join back up come colder weather.
14. Take a Zumba class I participated in a Zumba class with my friend Vicky on March 6th and didn't die! 

How are you doing with your goals? For those of you who made some at the beginning of the year, have you made good progress?


  1. I need to make a will, I've been saying it for years.

  2. Julee - I'm glad to know I'm not the only one slacking on the will making. This should be the year for both of us!
