Back in January, on the 23rd I posted a little ditty about Chinese New Years Resolutions and I thought that perhaps the 23rd of April (a mere 3 months later) would be a good time to update that.
I'd like to get one new Facebook or Google follower per month and resolve to be funnier or at least more "socially acceptable."
I need a wicked cool banner for my page, branding is the key to life and untold riches (No! I don't know how much that is, it is "untold". Duh) I therefor resolve to make or hire out the banner creation. Something like tellingdad.com or momslittlemonsterblake.com or perhaps bloggess.com would work nicely. That leads to the untold riches, yes? At least to a site on Zazzle or CafePress where my readers can buy T-Shirts and Travel Mugs with my logo on it...
I'm up to 50 Followers (I'm not Haley's Comet, yet) and 19 Facebook Fellowshippers (because that is easier to say than "likers"
My banner isn't as awesome as some that I mentioned, but it pleases me (until my ADHD sets in and I work on another, or win some blog makeover)
I have a Zazzle store with 4 products
I've run a giveaway with Rafflecopter that had 19 entries
I've Guest Blogged twice
I had a post go Viral
I've "won" three awards!
I'm going to be all lame and say I want to get in shape... well, if my cards have been played right, I should soon be in possession of the Jawbone Up provided that they work out the glitches, which tells my iPhone how much exercise I am not getting as well as how much sleep I am not getting. This should make it more motivational to do both better. My understanding is that sleep is achieved through exercise, but not right before bed... uh-oh. Now, the key is to not strive for too much. I will bike...some. I will pull on the stretchy things (oh, please! Get out of the gutter!) some.
I have strived to read the entire bible in a year, but I get bogged down in Leviticus or Numbers each time. So, I resolve to read JUST Leviticus and Numbers this year... ok that makes it sound like I can't hang with the Pastor Sunday mornings else I might be forced to read other verses... that is how our pastor rolls after all. But, in reality, I have decided to not be facing the failure of not reading the whole thing because I can't get past those two chapters filled with all their "begats" and "cubits." If nothing else, I limit my failure to a smaller one. But I shall not fail, I do have more than a year to get it done. (unless the world ends in December like all my living Mayan friends have told me it will).
Savings...I'm continuing in my plan to shed some debt that is at some artificially ridiculous interest rate instead of trying to dump money into a decidedly smaller savings account. The goal is to pay off my car this year, freeing money for the inevitable car repairs associated with a recently paid off vehicle.
Fail - Jawbone pulled the UP and between that and the pollen count giving me a 2 month headache, even biking has been a challenge.
Fail - headache can't be my excuse..
Fail - Uncle Sam got into my pocket for the first time in about 10 years.
Here's to finishing a project. This is the big one and we're finishing by April with a big phase.
We're on the finish line for Phase 1 and I think it is being deemed a success after multiple challenges!
