[1] to remodels at least 2 houses


[2] to lose the weight I put on from chemo


[3] to step up on the healthy eating


[4] to facillitate and grow a GRASP group


[5] to step down as coordinator of AutHaven, teaching my son to take over.


[6] CHICKENS! I was going to be getting them in the fall but the chicks were all killed by a fox right before they were ready for us to pick them up


[7] facilitate a PTSD group for creatively wired folks with PTSD


[8] BEES! [ I already have their jars decorated for any honey we harvested with polymer clay bees and flowers]


[9] TRY to give up on reconciling with someone I love with all my heart who fell for a series of deliberately and malicious choreographed evil lies about me. This has been on my new years goal list for the past several years and the one resolution I never successfully complete


[10] First year of retirement so number one reso;ution is to have tooooooooo much fun with my husband, doing all sorts of things, doing nothing, just BEING with each other.


[11] learn to spin sugar for pastries and cakes really well


[12] grow my Vlog and my jewelry business.


[13] more family time


[14] now that I am being occasionally recognized, to always dress normal and have my hair brushed when in public

To get in better physical shape.

To be more patient with people around here. To be more patient with myself.

Make this year count for something good.

I don't do resolutions anymore. But, I do have some goals. I hope to pay down some debt and then go back into debt buying a custom camper shell for my truck, so I can do more traveling in it with my dog.

And somewhere along the way, get rid of even more stuff and organize my space better.

Vicky3Vicky, your list is exhausting! I can tell you're not retired yet. It's amazing how much more I got done when I was working and how much busier I was. Don't miss it for the world.

Get some more exercise, like regular swimming that I used todo. But more walking, perhaps set a goal of 3 times a day.

Sheesh...there are always so many things on my list, I don't need New Year's to add more!

Starting March, my BIL and I will be down at the TN place to brood the first shipments of baby chicks to raise down there. He already built the cages and tractors this fall, and planted pasture grasses and clover for the birds. We hope to raise 800 birds next year, up from 325 this past year.

I can't stand the heat down there from May through October, so I have to do my share in spring!

Block texting from my phone so I can actually hear my younger sister's voice once in a while. She lives 150 miles away

Have never created a 'new year's resolution list'. . . if I want to change/start anything it can be accomplished at any point during the year.

Now that the house is paid off, I want to continue to make house payment amount right into saving account and build a nice nest egg for retirement in about 8 years.
