11 by 2012!

In a moment of total stress anxiety, with deadlines looming, it feels really great to look at my 12 goals and see how productive I've been in the past week! It's easy to forget what's been accomplished and be hard on oneself when expectations are high, time is short, and the piles of grading, reading, writing, etc. seem to grow rather than shrink.

1. Blog: update and rethink blog with steps taken/initiated toward new design for the new year.
2. Academics: Complete my grad. level PSU class with an A and a possible publication.
In progress. Worked extremely hard almost all weekend on classwork, but now feeling behind with school (teaching).
3. Painting: Finish painting the bedroom sky blue, the guest bedroom hazel green, the hallway a turquoise/teal and the downstairs a creamy latte/chocolate brown.
In progress: finished the second coat of hazel green in the guest bedroom.
4. Donate old clothes and books.
In progress: The pile is growing!
5. Host a friend's Thanksgiving: Invite people over for a Thanksgiving potluck the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.
6. Host some thank-you dinners for friends who have been super helpful in the past month of stress and madness.
7. Unpack. In progress: only a few straggling boxes remain!
8. Buy a washer and dryer.
Done! Washed about 20 loads this weekend!!!
9. Buy a new phone and get set up on family plan and teacher discount.
10. Take real steps toward the next big project (to be clarified later). 
Definitely in progress!!!
11. Start taking photographs and publishing them again.
12. Go to yoga at least 7 times.
In progress: Went once!
