Just looking at my Seven!!
My Seven for 2011:
1. Lose 25 pounds.
2. Plan weekly menus.
3. Reestablish lost relationships.
4. Study life of Jesus with Granddaughter, Jill.
5. Plan knitting and quilting projects.
6. Downsize "stuff" to half - again.
7. Drink up to 8 glasses of water daily and take my "pills".
#!. The numbers on the scale are just stuck!! I lost about 10 pounds last year. Have not lost any more - but am feeling so much better - am trying to be more active.
#2. Well, that one needs some work. I am gone many evenings and my son is not always up at dinner time.
#3. Have restored a relationship with my oldest son. We meet every Mon. evening for dinner - he is not ready to come back to my apartment because of his relationship with my son, Geoff who lives with me. My older daughter, Vicki who lives in Salem, is very distant from the family. I am planning to just start writing to her again - the last time she did respond, but the letter seemed very distrusting.
#4. Jill is 10 years old and has been diagnosed with "something". Her mother just gives me the letters - which indicate an explosive temperament. She is now on medication and is doing so much better. I had reached the point that I did not even want to be around her. But, she is doing so much better now - so perhaps it is time. And Jill loves to "play in the dirt" so am going to have her help me with my gardening this summer.
#5. Love to knit and have some projects lined up for the summer. Right now am knitting another pair of socks. Have a couple of quilt tops that i need to get quilted.
#6. Where does all the "stuff" come from??? I now have 4 boxes to take to Salvation Army. Will get that done this week!!!
#7. Am still working on the water!!. I find that I do drink more when i buy the bottled water. What a waste when we have a Brita in the fridge. But, I just do not drink it. So will used the already bottled for this month and the will see. Perhaps if the habit is there i can switch. And, I have the pills in my pocket. I once had a supervisor who told me that is does not work by osmosis - I have to put them in my mouth and swallow them. Maybe I should start doing that.
So, this is where I am. Not doing very well - but, I have at least started. Am planning to definitely finish all by Christmas!!
