2014 52 in 52

Although I was going to post goals for this year, I hadn't planned on doing the 52 in 52 again this year. I failed so miserably at it last year that I thought I better not try again this year. But after looking at the goals I was setting for this year, many of them were the same, and I did get to SOME of the goals from last year and that is better than nothing. So even if my 52 in 52 list doesn't get completed (or even half completed) at least I will get something accomplished!!!

I found this idea over at Kincavel Corner. Here is a link to her 52 in 52 list.

I'll post this to my tabs at the top of my blog and keep it updated through the year. Join us if you'd like, but if you do, please be kind and let Lady Kell at Kincavel Korner know that you are:) We can all cheer each other on!!!

Awesome list. I can help with the cleaning schedule - check out http://www.flylady.net/

Looking forward to seeing you check all these off. :)

I read number 43 as "back a horse" as in " put a bet on a horse" rather than you intending to get her one to ride LOL.

Great goals, good luck with meeting them.

Great list of goals for the year! Love the idea of 52 in 52, might have to tweak it for myself and make some goals. :) Good luck!
