1. Completely Finish the New House & Update Property
Sad news that our last potential old house owner fell through. It looks like it will have to be torn down. That will take a backseat to finishing the new house. I also added finish the property to this goal. Construction takes a toll on the yard which needs work. That portion will be a multiple year process.
2. Plan ahead for Birthday and Holiday Gifts
I found a great deal on a set of toddler board books. I ordered those for our nephew who will be two later this year. The price made it worth ordering in advance.
3. Use the Garden to be More Self-Sufficient
I did not get the lemon balm dehydrated and will try to work on that this week. I was happy to find that W took good care of the plants while I was sick. I will share more on that Wednesday in a garden post.
4. Take One Class a Month
I did finish the garden class, which was my second class of the year. I got some good ideas on how to improve my garden and make it a refuge. I did not start on a new class last week but will get to that this week.
5. Pack Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes on a Budget
W got a free hat that he did not want. It will go into a 10-14 year old boy shoebox. I hope to crochet several wash cloths this week.
6. Boost Savings
I put some extra money toward the credit card debt this week. We have paid on one-third of it so far this year.
