April Resolutions

It's almost halfway through April and I've only just now sat down to report on the outcome of my March resolutions (which I did finish in March, I just didn't write anything up until now), and to put my April resolutions on paper. I picked my April resolutions in the beginning of the month and have been working on them, so without further ado...

Say "Well" Instead of "Good" When Someone Asks Me How I'm Doing
This one is really hard for me and I've struggled with it. I'd say I'm doing it about 50% of the time. Although I know that "well" is the correct answer to that question, it sounds sounds sooooo haughty and pretentious to me! But my friend Kate has a thing about using "well," so I told her I'd give it a try. It's hard.

Curb Appeal!
I want to get some hanging plants for my porch and plant some new stuff in my pots. Time for another upgrade of the front porch fairy garden as well. Maybe, maybe, maaaaaayyyyyybbbbbbbeeeee I'll sand/paint/stain the spool table we have out there too. MAYBE.

Buy New Jeans
Every single pair of jeans I own has holes in the crotch. I guess that's what happens when you buy all your stuff from Old Navy. Anyway, I need new jeans. So it's happening this month.

March Resolutions: How'd I Do?

I completed all of my March goals

Finish Divergent
It was ok. I'm not chomping at the bit to read the other two though. And I haven't seen the movie. So I guess that says a lot about my overall feelings on the book. 

Only Read "Fun" Blogs (e.g. Home Improvement, Design) on the Weekends
I did this and it was hard. But I do believe it helped me to be more productive. Now that it's April, I've slipped back into my bad habit of reading every day. However, I did clean out my blog reader in a major way so I only have a few in there now. It keeps my blog reading time way down. Good stuff. 

Build Something with My Kreg Jig
I built this towel rack, and IT IS AWESOME.
