12. Keep up with my shopping ban. Alright, so you caught me. The dress and tights that I am wearing are new . . . and I also got a couple of more pairs of tights . . . and a sweater . . . and some oxfords . . . BUT I did use a gift card . . . though I went a smidge over my allowance on the gift card and they were all clearance items. Though I am going to be very good until the wedding. I have given my self clearance, however, if I happen to find the perfect cape or the perfect sleeveless trench. But that's because I've been wanting those forever.
11. Keep up with my quitting smoking. Just because I haven't had a cigarette in about 10 days doesn't mean I'm out of the woods yet. But, I hope to keep this habit licked in the new year.
9. Catch up on all the nagging little to-do's on my list. Like little cleaning projects, avoided doctor appointments and back yard maintenance.
7. (Really and truly) take up sewing and learn just how to work my machine. Even though I took my sewing class back in October, I still don't know how to thread the bobin on my machine. I still want to learn how to sew like a pro. I mean, it's in my blood after all. Since Pat got me a dress form for Christmas and the kids got me sewing patterns, I guess it's really time to hunker down and get 'er done. (I promise to never use this expression again.)
