At the beginning of the month I set some goals for myself to fight the couch potato in me that threatens to take over the evenings. The result: a smashing success!
My four goals were:
- Convert an old storage trunk into a padded storage bench for our bedroom.
- Complete this year's Christmas cards.
- Bake a loaf of bread from scratch.
- Keep the laundry pile under control
I already posted about the storage bench. I'm still completely thrilled with how that came out. The Christmas cards were finished last week. The loaf of bread is actually a batch of soft pretzels and they'll be finished tonight, just under the wire. Aaand the laundry, easily the most boring thing on the list? Accomplished. I bought a fancy hamper with three baskets so you sort as you go. When one of the baskets is full we just toss it in the washer. Doesn't sound like that big a deal, but the sort-as-you-go approach has changed how I feel about laundry! Awesome.
As a bonus, I've finished all of our Christmas shopping already. All I have left to do is a handful of handmade gifts. I am feeling pretty on top of it right now.
I'm thinking about my plans for December; will post soon!
