In honor of the glass that is 2010 being almost down to half full (or almost half empty), here are some things accomplished, unaccomplished, and some new mid-year resolutions. What are some of yours?
Half full (what I’ve done):
*re-done some particularly ugly parts of the Apartmenthouse (office/bedroom switcharoo, claustrophobia kitchen, my closet/deathtrap)
*started dressing nicer for work
*started a somewhat successful garden with the Husband
*scored some amazing thrift/estate sale finds (ROUND dining room table, dining room curtains, sweet vintage artwork/frames, pottery, hand sewn-metal zippered-perfectly fitting dresses…)
*learned more about how to be married
Half empty (what I’ve not done):
*taken enough pictures (100+ documented incidents of Laz being cute don’t count.)
*done enough sewing (yes, unfinished quilts, I see you all balled up in that plastic bag in the closet!)
*launched the handmade portion of HappyGoVintage Shop
*photographed/listed some of my favorite Etsy offerings for you, my Etsy-shopping friends
*kept up with this sad little excuse for a blog
*designed a real logo for HappyGoVintage
Half full (what I’ve recently decided to do):
*find/build/steal/buy/make the husband build/otherwise obtain a perfect teal-blue-ish velvet sofa (this will probably take years)
*go running consistently with the Husband even when it’s killer hot and humid. As in several days a week consistent. As in even when watching Hulu in our air-conditioned abode sounds much more fun.
*try more recipes and get better at cooking/find more time for it…oh, and eat less sugar (not really a new resolution…just an ongoing one…)
*limit myself to one insane list a day, instead of multiple agendas for the perfectly planned life that is just not mine. (does this one count?)
and with those new goals in mind, I think I officially need this!
