If you've read my Jan blog you already know I did my goals in Cozi and can't copy/paste them so I pic'd them here... hope you can read them okay! :)
Explanation for the bedroom: My brother was living in my house and I had a bedroom in the basement as I was living in Detroit and moved back a few weeks before kicking him out (drug issues - we put him on a plane to Phoenix so his daughter could take care of him and he's doing a LOT! better now PTL!) and I never moved my bed upstairs and my room was a mess and I was sinking into a depression (actually writing this I've realized my depression wasn't a year long as I was thinking but was growing for the last 4 or 5 years and I guess maybe it peaked this year) so anyway I got a cat and didn't want her in the bedroom mess (she was a kitten at the time) so I was sleeping on the couch with her and over time and lack of doing anything I'm still here... sleeping on the couch. I'd love to have a bedroom again and need to get my brothers stuff out of the one room in my little house that's a real bedroom and take it over. I couldn't just move in as the closet is packed with his stuff and reeks of cigaretes (I'm asmatic and HATE cigaretes) so I have to pack up his stuff and store it in the basement (which means getting bricks for the floor as it sometimes leaks a bit down there) and then washing and/or painting the walls to seal the stench in.
Oh, and my life gets put on hold in mid-August which is why I stop and start maintenance there. I do a renessance faire from mid-August until the first weekend of October, then there's the holidays and life is way to hectic to start anything new! I tend to get a bit stressed out this time of year (it's also my work's "year end" and I have to get everything ready for the next fiscal year) and I also tend to get sick this time of year so I have to take it as low key as possible.
OOPS! I forgot to add to my goals to meditate 10 minutes a day as a stress reliever/metime/balancing act :)
