2015 Goals: Final Progress Report

Wow, tomorrow is 2016. Can you believe it? This year was a full one for us with happiness, sadness, excitement, adventure and loss. And tomorrow we will be entering a new year, one that has so much potential. I'll be sharing my new goals then, but for today, I will be going over how I did this past year with my 15 goals for 2015.

1. Take a CPR/First Aid course Done! I had to take one for my volunteer work and I really enjoyed it.
2. Put $2,000 extra on the mortgage Didn't happen, shocker. Don't worry though, I will not be putting this on next years list.
3. Read 30 books I completed this goal at the beginning of September. And didn't read any since. ;)
4. Go on a canoe camping trip We went in July and had such a fabulous time.
5. Run my 3rd 5k I did it! I ran 4 out of the 5km and am so proud of myself!
6. Take a class (such as pottery, dancing, etc) with Dan We took 3 West Coast Swing classes and have signed up for Cha Cha in January.
7. Finish bedroom makeover I'm crossing it off, even though we never got to decorating before we moved.
8. Fix flower gardens I completed 4 out of the 6 so I'm calling it done. The new owners can tackle the last 2.
9. Build back patio Didn't happen and now never will. At least not by us.
10. Read a Shakespeare book I never got around to it before packing up my books. Oops.
11. Clean out car Done! I did a quick clean of it before lending it to my cousin this summer and I'm calling it good, especially now that we have a new one.
12. Get wedding and engagement rings soldered together We are still on the fence about this, so we haven't done it yet.
13. Learn to knit mittens Complete! And a few people even got some nice new mittens for Christmas.
14. Get a membership at a library Done!
15. Practice piano once a week Epic fail. And I no longer have a piano, so I can't even make it a goal for next year.

I completed 10 out of 15 goals, which isn't too bad. I had hoped to do better but sometimes life happens and priorities change. Or I just get too lazy. Either way, I call this another successful year and look forward to sharing my new goals with you tomorrow!


  1. Not bad, not bad at all! :) I look forward to seeing your new goals tomorrow.

    1. Of course you look forward to it, you helped me make some of them! ;)

  2. You make me want to make some goals.

  3. Happy New Year Jenn! It's been a tumultuous year for you; hope 2016 is at least a little better, maybe a lot better. Look forward to hearing about what you do to the new house.

    1. Thank you so much! I'm really hoping 2016 is better for both of us. :)

  4. I looked at my list and totally did not do half of them - but we did do a lot of other great things, so I can't be too disappointed! Making my new list tomorrow! Happy new year!

    1. The great thing about goals is that they can be changed or added to! So I still think you did well. And I can't wait to see your new list. :)
