November goals recap:
Go to the gym at least twice a week. FAIL. I went twice in total :S
Read a new book. PASS. Somewhat of a pass, it was a children's chapter book (217 pages). Still counts right?? Mmm maybe not.
Complete the quilt I started. PASS. It's done, and so are all my pillowcases and a pillow. I am working on a second pillow and a second quilt.
Complete Christmas shopping for my friends. PASS. This is all complete, I just need to mail them, but will wait until the second week of December to do this.
20 no shopping days. FAIL. It was close though, I had 11 spend days and therefore 19 no shopping days.
Keep $1500 in my account. PASS. Of course this is going toward my family loan but that was the goal. Yay I will avoid monthly bank fees for the first time in a long time!
New December Goals:
Go to the gym at least twice a week. Let's try this goal again.
Finish buying and wrapping all Christmas presents. Hopefully this will be done in a couple of weeks.
Try to get work over Christmas break. I think it might be possible to work at the rec centre over the Christmas break for at least 5 days. This will help as otherwise I have very little income for December.
Open ING account. I have sent the $100 in the mail but once it gets deposited I want to look more into the different options ING has. In January I want to set up a TFSA with them.
Determine some personal and financial goals for 2010. I have a few in mind but want to lay it all out.
Do some Christmas baking. I think I want to make and decorate Christmas sugar cookies. If I can find some cute cookie cutters!
Yesterday I made some braided bread. I think I could have let it rise a bit more, but it turned out pretty well for baking bread for the first time!
