The One With Some Goals

Well, let me just say 2010 was one of the craziest, busiest, saddest, most hectic years of my life. So, I will not apologize for my lack of blogging, I will just say that I hope to be much better in 2011. I think I can stick with it this year....I'm sure 2011 will be a better year for me. Here's hoping! So, I thought I'd share my goals, since many others on the innerwebs are doing the same and have inspired me.

11 goals for 2011.....

1.) Blog more. I'd like to try for once a week or atleast 4x per month, on average.
2.) Get and stay caught up on reading (and commmenting on!) blogs. I love visiting all of my favorites but don't make enough time to do so.
3.) Finish 75 books this year. My goal for last year was 52 and I made it to 65, so I am upping the ante this year.
4.) Spend more time on Ravelry updating my projects and visiting forums. And PR. I need to get (and stay) caught up there too!
5.) Make up a stockpile of birthday, wedding, sympathy etc and have them ready for special occassions. I always run out of time to make cards for people!
6.) Sell my snowmobile, assorted gear, wedding dress and several other things on Craigslist or Ebay.
7.) Take a trip to two places I've never been before. First up: Vegas in March for my 30th birthday! Can't wait! Not sure yet where the other one will be yet.
8.) Finish 10 knitting (or possibly crochet) projects and 25 scrapbook pages. This will be a large step up from this year, so we will see how well I can do.
9.) Find a new place to live. My lease is up in June and I will definitely be moving.
10.) Teach myself to crochet. And possibly sew. (I have a new, way awesome teacher for the sewing part, so hopefully....!)
11.) Take more pictures.

There you have it! I hope I can accomplish most or all of these things this year. What are your goals or resolutions for 2011? I'd love to hear!
