shorty's November 2007 Goals

I do believe I have accomplished almost all of my Oct goals so here's the wishful list for November....lots going on !

* Pay $1,000.00 to line of credit
* Purge ALL boxes in the junk nook
* Once purged, set up new 'work' table and move furniture into area to make a mini 'den'
* To not accumulate more debt
* Purchase the next book I want to read by Nicholas Sparks and read it by month's end - and I will be using a GIFT CARD to purchase :D
* Use the Gazelle more consistently
* Complete my Christmas wish list so I can share with family
* Start research for my birthday in Jan since I want to go somewhere :lol:
* Christmas Goal: compile my card list - Im going to mail them out this year, more personal and old fashioned and Im not giving gifts so this is it!
* Christmas Goal: Complete all my shopping and to start wrapping
* Christmas Goal: Set up my tree and various festive decorations
* And finally - to be happy with everything: family, friends, work, budget/finances etc - everything :)

I HAVE to lose a few pounds between now and Dec. 11 (doctor's appt), so I intend to decrease my food intake and increase my exercising.

Also I plan on continuing to pull this house together. It's been 8 months since we moved in and it's still not the way I want it.

I will also start some baking/freezing for the holidays.

My one goal, and it's important to me, is to finish the NaNoWriMo mentioned in the Hobbies/Writers section. I think I can do it, but it will mean fewer visits here and some real pre-November preparation house-wise. I hope hope HOPE I can finish!

I am having surgery on the 30th so I need to get quite a bit accomplished before that:

- Finish all Christmas Shopping
- Cook many meals ahead so we can just reheat for dinners
- finish weatherproofing house
- send out Christmas cards (already signed)
- get all TDI paperwork in order
- beef up EF as it'll be a few weeks after the surgery before we see any TDI checks
- Decorate house for holidays
- Make and freeze Christmas cookie batters


I am sure I will find many more, but this stuff is "must do" for now!
