2013 goals

Every year I like to pick a few goals and projects to try to accomplish over the course of the year.  This year I would like to:
  • Finish my afghan.  I am just excited to do that.  I love the colors and I love the way it is already coming together.
  • Exercise - I would like to also exercise more - since I get nearly no exercise now, I am aiming for once a week - no need to rush into things.
  • Photo project.  This is the *big* project that I would like to do this year is to get my family photos in order.  I would love to put them into scrapbooks, but I know I don't have the time to do that for real, so I am going to try to scrapbook digitally.  I have seen a few peoples blogs that give good instructions and I am hoping that once I get the hang of it, the pages can come together quickly.  I am not aiming for fancy -just finished.
    • Step one is to gather photos:  I already scheduled an appointment for our old eMac at the genius bar for tomorrow in the hope that we will be able to retrieve the old photos from that computer.  I am also going to ask others who may have photos of the girls to send them to me if they can.  I am also going to take some of our regular photos to Costco to be scanned.
    • Step two will be to organize them:  I think I will probably sort them by year first and then see what I have from there.  
    • Step three will be to actually put pages together.  I am going to try to keep them simple.  This will likely take me many hours and most of the year. 
    • Step four will be printing the pages - I know there are several good options out there.  I can't wait to see the finished product.
