HOME PROJECTS GOAL FOR 2014



I know I tried this once before, and never kept up with it.  But now I am going to try this again.  We are in a new house this year and I have a lot of ideas and projects I want to do with the new house.  
So my goal for this list is to get all or most of them accomplished this year.  I am a list maker and I love crossing the done things off the list.
I am hoping that sharing the list with you will help me make a much better effort of blogging this coming year, and help me actually follow through on all my project ideas.  I tend to start a million projects at once and not always finish all or any of them...  What can I say, I get so excited about all my to do projects that I want to do them all at once then I have so many going on I get overwhelemed and can't decide which one to work on so I just don't work on any.. Oh yes this has been a long time problem of mine.  BUT I am working on changing that this year, and hopefully with the prospect of blogging about each project will help me work on this bad habit of mine.  :) 
Then my ultimate goal for this list is to blog about each project and then link everything in this list to the blog post about the project.
I am looking forward to the new year coming and a fresh start for another year. I am determined to make 2014 a good year.  I have many goals set, not just for projects around the house but personal and financial goals as well.

  1. Ah, I can comment now! Yay!
    Your explaination of all your ideas and not keeping up sounds just like me.
    You have a healthy list of to-do's here. I'll be looking forward to seeing them come together!
