9 for 2019 wrap-up

It's the very last day of 2019, and I owe y'all an update on my 2019 goals.  Here's how I did:

  • Make/install chicken swing--Check!  I have since uninstalled the chicken swing, since the girls seemed to be afraid of it, but it's going back out there when/if we ever get new chicks.  I'm hoping that they'll be less afraid if I train them young.
  • Make vanilla extract--Check!  I've even used some of it, for muffins and cookies.
  • Cover a box that I store things in to make it pretty--Check!  I'm even using it for what I intended.
  • Four playdates with myself (Ikea, Hobby Lobby, downtown, Arboretum)--Check!  I decided that Home Goods was an adequate stand-in for the Arboretum, and I sneaked the downtown trip in under the wire, but I got it done.
  • Replace dish cloths--Check!
  • Put together a traveling charger kit--Check!
  • Facts of life book--Nope.  And it's not going to show up on next years' list, either (two years was enough), but I will continue to work on it.

All but one, done.  I learned that I need to get most of my goals done in the first half of the year, before my energy and enthusiasm dessert me.  

How did you do on your 2019 goals?

Here are the ten additional goals that I would add if I was doing 19:
  • Plant a green bean teepee--sort of!  It was a weirdly shaped teepee, but I'm counting it.
  • Grow an amaryllis bulb--nope.  But good idea for next year.
  • Light an outdoor tree--again, nope, but I'm considering this for next year.
  • Make a sugar scrub--Check!  And now I kind of don't want to live without it.
  • Make vanilla mint lip balm--nope, but it's in the running for next year.
  • Make a bacon lattice--No.  What was I thinking?
  • Make reusable food wrap--Also no, but definitely a contender for next year's list.
  • Find a pretty bottle for my mouthwash --Check!
  • Schedule an appointment for Bubby with the orthodontist--Check!
  • Unsubscribe (from magazines and email newsletters)--Check!
