1. Read 7 books.
One more than last month.
2. Maintain weight at 152 pounds.
3. Complete 2 modules of course.
I have been ignoring this training course for over a year and really need to just finish it already!
4. Meet 1/10 of net worth goal.
I would like to build on the momentum of this past month. Being overseas and busy with work should keep me from being irresponsible and CodeMonkey has agreed to try and help me slash our budget.
5. Knit 20 hours this month.
Because I like knitting; I just need to make time for it.
6. Attend mass 7 times.
Mass is good for me, even if it's inconvenient. So I need to go more than *mumbles* onceamonth. RELIGION FAIL.
7. Get rid of 50 things.
I am apparently the only natural predator of household clutter.
8. Unpack two boxes from CodeMonkey's office.
We're trying to turn this into a workable space. This is embarrassing, but some of the stuff there is still boxed up from our last move.
1. Finish one pair of socks for CodeMonkey. We are trying to develop a pattern for socks to fit his unusual feet (size 8 5E). It's slow and frustrating, but he's going to need a whole wardrobe of these in time.
So not done. So not even close. Wife fail.
2. Lose 3 more pounds, down to 151 lbs.
I ended up at 152. Not even trying for next month, as I'm spending the first half of February being wined and dined on this business trip.
3. Meet 1/12 of net worth goal.
Done! We've met 23.4% of this year's net worth goal. (Thank you, bonus!) I don't expect it to be this easy every month, but it's always nice to kick the year off successfully. I'd like to meet 10% of our net worth goal this February.
4. Finish lace yoke sweater.
Oh, so not done. Not even close. Ha.
5. Read 10 books.
Read 6: NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children, The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun, Sacred Treasure, the Cairo Genizah: The Amazing Discoveries of Forgotten Jewish History in an Egyptian Synagogue Attic, Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything, One for the Books and Little Women. There was also an abortive attempt at Little Men.
Conclusion: I read way more when I have the Kindle. Hand fatigue is real.
