January Bucket List Update!

Hey all!  Here’s a monthly update on how my bucket list is going.  I’d love to hear how your goals are coming.  Please let  me know!  Or else, I’ll come looking for you…and your goals.


This dog has nothing to do with this post. But I met her in Nashville. Her name is Lady. She’s half lab. Half weiner dog. Full hilarious.


A big thanks to her owner, who didn’t know me at all, for letting me take tons of pictures.

1. Write and publish and an ebook.  (Deadline: June)

I haven’t started.

2.  Make a monthly video (Ongoing.  First deadline: January 31)

I didn’t do this.  But, I will in February.   

3.  Sew something I can wear outside of the house (Deadline: September)

I haven’t started.

4.  Make a podcast (Deadline: August)

I haven’t started. 

5.  Keep my car clean for a month.  I’m tired of riding around in a trash can on wheels.  So are my passengers!!! Don’t judge me.  Or do.  Either way is okay.  (January)

I’m calling this a success!  My car stayed cleanish all month.  The only thing I have in it is a rogue DVD.  And maybe a hair brush.  And maybe a quarter and a penny.  This is why I put an ish at the end of clean. 

This month, I scavaged my world for trash cans.  I found a trash can at work I can throw my morning trash in.  I found the trash cans at the mall.  I found trash cans at restaurants.  And I found my own trash can.  It was where I thought it was.  Inside my house.  I started using it. 

6.  Wake up early for an entire month.  Early means 6:00…a.m.  (February) I picked February for this– because it’s a short month.  And I HATE mornings.

I’m switching this goal to March.  Because we started goal number 13 this month. 

7.  Run a 10K or more.  (Deadline: October)

I haven’t started.

8.  Finish P90X.  (I started this a couple weeks ago) (Deadline: March)

We’re still working on this one.  We’ve completed seven weeks so far.  Watch out triceps. 

9.  Do something really nice and for Mr. We’ve Had them Since They Were Tiny. (Deadine: July)

I haven’t started this. 

10.  Pay off 40K on our house (Ongoing).

We paid off $1,000 last month.  Progress is progress.  Except when it’s slow.  Then it’s slogress. 

11.  Really help out a stranger.  Or someone I know.  Just help out another person in a big way. (Deadline: December)

Haven’t started. 

12.  Tithe every month.  Ugh.  This one hurts, because I’m not a cheerful giver yet.  But, I’m working on it.  (Ongoing)

We tithed in January.  One month down! 

13.  Eat low carb for a month.  (March)

We switched this goal to February, and we started the South Beach Diet.  So far, I’ve lost four pounds and Mr. We’ve Had Them Since They Were Tiny has lost nine.  Pretty good!  But I’m craving a pizza and some ice cream, bad. 

The worst part was this weekend, we went to a couples night, a surprise party, and to a friends house for the super bowl.  Trying to eat low carb at a party is like trying to put a snake in your pants.  I have no idea where that analogy came from.  But, it’s accurate.  Trust me. 

14.  Invest in something besides retirement.  I’m not sure what this will be, but I have been reading investment books, and I feel like I should try something. (Deadline: December)

We tried to do this.  But our deal fell through.  Well, we backed out.  Here’s why we backed out of a $14,000 rental house. 

I’m still looking out for investments, and I have another idea in mind.  I’ll flush it out and get back to you. 

We’re a month into the beautiful new year.  How are your goals?
