Recap of last years resolutions:
1. Reduce / Eliminate trash at the office
Success. I started bringing in dish towels instead of using paper towels. At the my new job, I’m throwing practically nothing away on a daily basis. 🙂
2. Go camping / outdoors more often
Mixed. Fin and I spent more time outdoors, but spent less time camping. We did a LOT more outside though, with the garden.
3. Pay off another debt
Success. I got rid of a particularly nasty cash advance that had been around my kneck for a while.
4. Perfect a soap recipe / be able to make commercial quality soap
Success. I won’t say ‘perfect a soap recipe’, but we’ve been using my soap for the past year, with excellent results. Even the mistake batches have been good. Hoping to do another batch soon.
5. Return to martial arts
Fail. This never really worked from a time / money standpoint, and my old job was getting in the way as well.
6. Post more useful stuff more often
Fail. I’ve been really distracted for a while.
7. Grow and maintain a garden
SUCCESS. We had a great garden this past year.
8. Release some software / finish a project
Fail. I did make a lot of progress though…
9. Finish unpacking
EPIC FAIL. Yeah…. about those 5 new boxes of packed random crap…
10. Grow in maintenance / carpentry / plumbing / etc… skills
Continuing. I’ve got a lot to learn still…
