I can hardly believe that Christmas has come and gone again. We were blessed with great time with family and lots of (too many?) gifts.
My favorite gift-- my beautiful and adequately nerdy Erin Condren Planner. I am in love! I'm using it to plan my daily life at home and our family schedule. I'm writing my to-do list for the day, what we're having for dinner, appointments, birthday reminders, anything my crazy little mind can think of. It perfectly satisfies my office supply and list-making obsessions.
This weekend, J-bird and I are taking a few hours for ourselves (thankful for grandparents!) and planning 2012 goals for our family. Instead of resolutions, we will decide and write down our family goals for three major areas-- Financial, House, Personal. For example, last year two of our goals were to have a baby and pay off the car. We accomplished both of those and so much more.
Here are some prelim goals for 2012:
Financial-- finish emergency fund, max out one of our Roth IRAs
House-- replace fence
Personal-- potty train Goose
Those are just a few of our goals. We have to decide on the rest of them together, as partners and leaders of our family, and assign priorities to each of them.
What are some of your goals for 2012?
