Schedules and Mondays always get me......


I've been sitting here reading blogs and admiring those who can make out a weekly schedule of quilting plans, meal plans, oh heck, let's be honest here---just ANY plans!

i guess by now i've thoroughly gotten into retirement, so the best i can do is to make some monthly plans. I have gotten soooo used to having that nice 'wiggle room' during the week; days when i can park myself in front of the tv with no guilt, and watch a movie if i want to just because...

Last year i accomplished a lot of quilting--and a lot more than i ever envisioned that i would.
But after all that effort i just needed some 'down time'......which was basically the last two months!

But it's a new year, time to get moving again....time to get back to quilting...and time to try something new! (ps. this is where schedules come in..hehehe)

SOOOO, this week i will take a stab at:

1. finishing the last project of 2008 (nothing like starting off being late out of the gate, is there!)

2. get a new pack of sewing needles--I have a lot of applique comming up this year!

3. get down to Lowes and get some shelf holders (for the LR) and two sets of shelves for the garage.

goals are sometimes necessary evils! I find when I make my goals, I don't make them too big as they become overwhelming and LOOM over me. I have a friend who puts small things on a list each day, she LOVES to be able to cross them off. And when I feel the urge to make a great big list of goals, I remember that things comes up, I won't have all the time I think I do. I only put down HALF of what I could do when I was young (VBG) and then my goals are easier. And--I get them done!! I make my list best at night before I sleep, I keep a tablet/pen close by. I can always delete them!!
