Decided I should pop in here - this is my list for March


Mundania
  • Finish a scale model - my one truly mundane vice - not happening this weekend, so gone
  • Read 5 fun books - got 4 on my Palm now - partially through two of them already - almost done with one halfway through the second - so FAIL
  • Clean the basement - it's a disaster - haven't really touched it since fall - This I should finish this weekend
  • Plan veggie garden - working to become more self-sufficient - layout done - now to till and erect surrounds
Physical
  • Get better with my exercise - been slacking lately though I am down 2 lbs since Jan 1 - 6'1.5"/188lb currently - just have to work to shift the "middle age spread" someplace else -  day cycle of crunches, pilates and walking - so I'm on my way - also gonna add in weight in there someplace
  • Work on cutting back the smoking - 40+ year habit is NOT easy to drop - lots of stress going on - so I'm actually smoking a bit more that I was a couple months ago
Magickal
  • Design new shine/altar - this will also have to be built at some future point - haven't even started
  • One blog entry - I got a new rant/response just over half finished - Maybe get this done, it's possible
  • Work on sewing up new kilt - I got enough green/black tartan for a great-kilt, but I'm gonna cheat and have the pleats sewn in place - not even touched
  • Plan herb garden - Lavender, Lemon Balm and Rosemary plus the Wild Rose already growing out back - it's a start - also laid out ready to till

Physical Fitness

1. Keep up the exercise = visiting the gym twice a week. - Hiatus for two months - out of mere self-preservation, I'll go again next week. Better than sitting alone in the house the whole day. But for now, calling this a fail seems correct.
2. Keep up the mainly vegetarian food/cooking style.
3. Keep up the discipline of no sweet soda/sweets in general. - *snorts*

Household
4. Try to keep the chaos at bay. At least a bit? - Amazingly, this seems to work... color me stunned.

Writer
5. Get the lazy butt up and edit the damned story! For the interim goal let's say: three chapters. - totally misjudged the state of the manuscript and the amount of work that it will need to be called kinda finished... *hits self on the back of the head - can you say *FAIL*?
6. Reading at least five books from the pile stacked up in the shelf. - Done!

Witchy
7. Participating in the Pagan Blog Project - it's working, so I say accomplished
8. Start the big Journal with at least three entries. - Having the stuff for the third entry right here, it will go in the book in the next hour or so. DONE!
9. Make some holy water. - I won't get that done. Will transfer it to next season.


Goals: 9
Done: 5
Failed: 4


This was the most successful list I ever tried.
Wow! I am motivated! Yay! ;)

1. Finish my Tarot deck.
I came really close, only 7 cards left to color, but... fail.

2. Organize all of my stuff.
Fail

3. Get back into my work out routine.
Nope, didn't happen. Though I am getting more exercise, I'm still not into a regular routine. So, fail.

4. Pay off our credit cards.
Fail.

5. Quit smoking... again.
Success!!! :)
