1. Save $2500, less whatever I spend on gifts. Done!
I was able to do this! And you all will be happy to know that I split a larger baby shower gift with my Mom and my sister, so I was only out $100 for the baby shower present.
2. Do not spend any money on new clothes. Done!
I made it! It should not have felt so hard. I did break down and buy the tights (in brown and in navy), but I had a gift card to cover it, so I say that counts. Gotta love the cleverly worded goals.
3. Get my name changed with my banks. Fail.
What will probably happen is that all of my tax forms will be in the wrong name and then the IRS will send someone to arrest me. Maybe then I’ll finally get around to doing this!
4. Send out 30 thank you’s. Kinda?
We wrote 46! They aren’t sent yet, but that is because I am stupid and forgot to write the ones that need to be sent out first. My plan is to write them tonight so that I can take credit for getting it done in November!
5. Go to yoga on average once per week. Done!
I love this class.
6. Bake cookies for the office Thanksgiving. Done!
I made my sister’s secret Rolo cookie recipe, and even the pumpkin pie wasn’t as popular as those caramel-filled delights. I also made my great-grandmother’s butter cookie recipe, but someone else at work (despite me putting down that I was making the cookies, you guys. I am filled with petty office rage!) brought in cookies that were similar looking but not as tasty.
7. Create 2010 budget. Done!
I’ve already posted my comments on this, so now it’s just time to create some concrete goals based on the numbers.
