Goals for 2014 - UPDATED 10-1-14

As the New Year rolled in I set aside 5 basic things that I wanted to focus on for the year 2014. I promised monthly updates in hope that it will keep my focused on accomplishing these.  Here is the original post:  Goals for 2014 as posted on 1-4-14

1)  Replace Holy Mary Tree Topper:  Check

2) Create Heirloom Quality Christmas Stockings:
I know that I am running out of time.  Maybe someday I will not be this busy - ha ha - who am I kidding?

3) Improve Flexibility and Stamina:
 I started very late in the month but I did actually turn on the "exercise channel" on the Roku and tried out a stretching video.  I didn't even make in more than 5 minutes the first day (9-29).  It did feel good to stretch.  The plan is to start by just stretching the first week.  I hope I can keep it up. The next day I walked to a video on walking.  I was told I walked one mile and I was exhausted.  I hope I can keep it up.

4) Move Into a Home That Better Fits This Big Family Needs:
I still feel so stuck in this place.  I hate the house ugh.  I don't want to move local.  We are still moving forward with addressing all credit issues.  I had no idea that following Dave Ramsey's programs might negatively effect our credit as much as it did.  It does feel great to have little debt but I wonder if another approach might have been better for us.  We are trying to look into all possibilities with that as well.

5) Be Adventurous:
I feel very unadventurous right now. I am back to feeling overwhelmed with a desire to move but no able to make it happen. I want to travel but can't fit it in the budget or the calendar.  It is still hot and humid and the few days of relief just make we want to get the heck out of here.
