Resolution Update | March

Holy crap, March, thank goodness you’re over and done. Geesh. Besides an attack of seasonal allergies, I also had a not-so-pleasant experience with shingles. I couldn’t figure out if my head and neck legitimately ached, or the pain was that intense. I was thankful for a week of “vacay” during Spring break, and Mom drove to Texas for a visit. On March 31, Husband and I celebrated six (SIX!)years of marriage. As for my resolutions and goals, I’m making good progress:

MONTHLY RESOLUTIONS

January – organize a group to read Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg Purchased the DVD study.

February – edit photos from Holy Land Done. create, order, and mail a secret project Recipients should receive their gift before Easter (March 31). finalize Wonderstruck small group EPIC FAIL. schedule a paid photo shoot FAIL.

March – share Holy Land photos Partially done. Annual well-woman exam Done. Annual eye doctor (new contacts + eyeglass fitting) FAIL. Begin Wonderstruck small group FAIL. Schedule another Photoshop lesson with Sean FAIL. Schedule/Shoot/Edit/Deliver photos to clients Somewhat successful in that I delivered photos to a group of young ladies, but also somewhat of a FAILURE because I have yet to schedule another shoot with anyone. Mail the “secret project” by March 20 SUCCESS. I created an Easter card with photos from the Holy Land. I did not send Christmas cards last year, so this was my attempt to redeem brownie points. If you received my Easter card, did you like it?

April – correctly choose the winner of the men’s NCAA basketball tournament, survive boring testing days at school (YUCK!), practice with Photoshop, host DFW Bloggers’ Spring Meet Up and schedule a trip someplace

    I LOVED my Easter card so much that it is still the ONLY thing on top of the coffee table so it can be looked at by everyone!!

    You are so awesome about making resolutions! Even if everything isn’t always accomplished right when you want it to be at least you have an ongoing list of things that you are striving for. Can’t wait to see you at the end of the month!
