What Have You Done?

I decided to revisit my 2011 resolution list before the year was out, to see how I did. And: It's not too bad.

Here are the ones I missed:

  • For some reason, last January I thought I wanted to be a vegetarian. I don't eat much meat as it is, but my semi-vegetarian ways have remained.
  • I still haven't done the 100 Thing Challenge.
  • I haven't finished either of my previous WiPs, but I did manage to start at least one more.
  • And I met no goal times for my running. I'm not sure why I bothered to resolve that, since we're not currently running any races.

And the ones I hit:

  • I can now make my own yogurt. Also my own bread, granola, granola bars, and pasta. Plus all the things that I was able to make before-- I'm not sure that resurrecting my cookie- and brownie-making abilities was a good thing.
  • I read 100 books for the Goodreads challenge. Actually, I read a lot more than that, but I didn't change the dates on any of my re-reads.
  • Thanks to us being hosts on Airbnb, my house is much cleaner than it used to be and stays cleaner with a great deal more consistency than ever before.
Okay, when I list it out like that, it looks like I did not have a banner year. But I guess I met the ones I wanted to meet and the others were just for decoration? That's what I'm choosing to believe, anyway.

Did you make any resolutions for 2011? Will you make any for 2012?

I resolved not to make any resolutions and I'm happy to say I stuck with it.

Congrats on the 100 book goal. I had that goal a couple of years ago and, I have to say, I was pretty wiped out afterwards. I read nothing but vampire romances for the next month and a half.

I had six goals this year and I accomplished five of them so I'm counting it as a win. Still, I hope to do better in 2012.

Happy New Year!

I did much better on my personal plans than my writing ones, but I'm going to try for both to be successful in 2012. Happy New Year.

Honestly, I don't think anyone's resolution list gets every item checked off. Mine sure didn't. Anyway, I think it's really cool that you learned how to make your own bread and all that. You did great this year.

@Delores: Well done! ;)

@MJ: Five out of six is definitely a win.

@Susan: Good luck! And Happy New Year to you!

@JE: Thanks! I've become so addicted to bread making. It's crazy.

I like the idea of decoration resolutions. ;) Hope 2012 is even better! Happy New Year.

Me, too. :) Happy New Year!
