Ready for a new adventure

I took the Summer off from blogging
and many of my other regular activities.
 
But...I'm back and ready to have
a new adventure.
 
So...first...end of Summer Stash Report:
 
Fabric in...maybe 10 yards
 
Fabric out...maybe 10 yards.
 
That means I am still at about 27 yards
of fabric used doing 2014
 
Part of my new path is I am
ready to accomplish some goals
I have put off for quite a while...
some goals for years and years.
 
My youngest child is getting married
in the next few months and we, the
Mister and I, will be emptynesters!
 
Some folks set goals with the New Year.
I am married to a school teacher, so
our schedule tends to follow a
September-August period.
 
Some of my goals I am planning are
 
1. Lose weight: I know...everyone has that goal. I
am about 100 lbs overweight, so I need to lose, no matter
what. It's a health issue. I need energy to live the life I want too.
 
2. Finish a UFO each month: I'll add a list here next week.
 
3. Read my scriptures everyday: I read the Book of Mormon
over the 100 days of Summer vacation. On to the Bible..
 
4. Clean out my storage: I have cleaned out holiday d├ęcor, but
the food/camping/clothing/don't know where to put it
storage has taken over one huge room down stairs.
 
5. Use it up-make it do: Like many of us have been
fabric stash busting, I have way too much fabric and it
needs to be used up. A few years ago, I went 1 year without
purchasing any fabric, and I am going to do it again.
 
There will be more goals, I know, but this is a good start for
Sep 2014. If any of you have had experience trying to
accomplish these changes, please share any tips or helps!
