How sad is this? I was scrolling through this thread trying to find my own original post so that I could see what I had posted for a yearly goal.... and apparently I never even posted at the start of the year! Pathetic!

Well, I'm at work now and am expecting students any moment, so I will try hard to remember to pop back on later this week with my scrapping (and other) goals. Better late than never!..................P

Cards: not sure - I'm really not a card person but I may make a few for fun nope haven't even done one yet
Swaps: Big theme park ones - I'm going to make 2 sets of books for the 2013 trip - one for home & another set for boys to take to group home with them. this got changed to 3 books & I want them all the same so I think I'll take too many spots - did do AK for all 3

Projects to finish:
don't really have any at this moment - just working on all 2013 Disney albums

Albums I am Working on:
Park Albums
Character Album
tubing/girls weekend fun books for friends

Organizing:
Redo scraparea set-up (January)
Find a way to keep putting things away this isn't happening
Work room by room through the house - work on cluttering/fixing up
1st room: Living room (February/maybe January)James moved the living room around for me that is as far as this got - I am buying stuff to fix up the bathroom, need more Mickey stuff

Shopping:
I will only buy scrap items that I have a specific and immeadiate use for
Carts- only if they have a specific purpose and I have a list of at least 10 cuts I will be using off the cart if I can't make them myself in inkscape (can't do exact but maybe something that would work better)

Personal:
Exercise 5 time/week
3 times lifting with DH
Atkins diet with only 2 "fun" days per month -this isn't working - every time I turn around there is something that doesn't let me diet usually 6 flags trips over the summer or family get togethers

That is all for now but I am sure I will have more to add.

I'm really bad. I don't think I have scrapped a single page this whole year I'm not even up to date with getting pictures off my camera. Which I really need to do, I think all of my memory cards are full. I have A LOT of memory cards. It's not good that they are so cheap now. I buy more rather than unload.
