Quarterly Report

I thought I'd go back to my resolution list to see how things are shaping up in 2007:

Tentative 2007 to do list

1. Re- introduce myself to pilates and yoga
Check - I've been going to pilates 2-3 times a week
2. Make a skirt from the Built by Wendy book
Hasn't happened
3. Figure out how to make a little snap bag (like this one)
Check - I've made a few and just ordered fabric to make more
4. Take more walks
Hmm... not really, although maybe this will change once it is actually summer
5. Cook dinner more often
Yes, basically the only thing I blog about is what I cook on the weekends
6. Make myself a soft hat and scarf to match my orange coat
Too late! Maybe next fall
7. Re-read The Red Tent (possibly my favorite book of all time)
Done. I loved it even more this time around
8. Clean out the extra bedroom closet and get rid of clothes I don't wear
This actually happened.
9. Re-vamp my wardrobe
This has not. But I think about it a lot. And I love this site.
10. Join the co-op near our apartment
We ended up joining a CSA for the summer with my brother and SIL
11. Visit the dentist
Sadly, no.
12. Start a new journal
I haven't started a journal, but I keep a book of images/color schemes/ideas etc.
13. Maintain my date book so I can look back on 2007 once it's 2008
So far so good
14. Plan our SF trip in June
This is pretty much done. We have tickets and booked our room in Paso Robles + our hotel in SF
15. Work on this
I bought a few books on this list but haven't read any yet. I'm re-reading Jitterbug Perfume at the moment
16. Make a quilt
Maybe when I retire
17. Take more photos (and put some on flickr)
I suppose I take a lot of pictures of food (see #5) but I could do better and I haven't put anything on flickr.
18. Cut down on my refined sugar intake
Ummm I could probably work on this one too
19. Start saving $$ for another european trip or Lake Louise
We're thinking Xmas 2008 in Switzerland, but haven't made plans yet.
20. Speaking of saving $$, I need to be better about saving for taxes this year!
I started a savings account and have been putting away 15% of my paycheck. It's not a lot but it's a start!

I think I'm doing pretty well, no?

I'm off to journal club and then I have a biostats exam, which is my last (written) test for this round of grad school. This frees up virtually 100% of my time for lab work, which is what I like anyway.

Great work so far! But please go to the dentist!

thanx for the heads-up on the sartorialist, i've added to my reader. there's a lot for me to learn from it.
must be nice to traipse around Europe taking pictures of beautiful people, but I was happy to see someone stylishly wearing shorts.

red tent is on my list for this summer!

You're right about the dentist... I don't know why I hate it so much.
