Happy New Year! Cheers to 2017!

Here are my goals for January:

  1. Kick off the 52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge.
  2. Catalog all receipts and log them in our budget spreadsheet before February 1st.
  3. Celebrate Al’s birthday!
  4. Begin my journal adventure.
  5. Start editing my 2012 NaNoWriMo endeavor.
  6. Update my TBR list.

Here’s the breakdown:

Kick off the 52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge.

  • Thanks to Kristian at Life Lessons Around The Dinner Table, I’m so excited to start a a full YEAR challenge!
  • My plan is to publish these posts on Wednesdays, so look for a new post every single week in 2017!

Catalog all receipts and log them in our budget spreadsheet before February 1st.

  • All I could think about for the last few days was the best ways to keep our mountain of receipts organized and cataloging them in a timely manner. I want to have a good picture of our budget for 2017 early!

Celebrate Al’s birthday!

  • Al’s birthday is later this month!
  • It falls on a Wednesday this year, so we’ll be working that day, but I’ll make sure it’s a special day.
  • Surf and turf, and cookie cake! Yum!!

Begin my journal adventure.

Start editing my 2012 NaNoWriMo endeavor.

  • I started a series called Writing Wednesdays in 2015, where I bravely shared my 2012, 2013, and 2014 National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) attempts / endeavors.
  • Here’s the first post: New Series: Writing Wednesdays
  • I’m excited to finally be at the point where I feel comfortable enough to start editing my first endeavor. The ultimate goal will be to get this piece to at least 50,000 words.

Update my To Be Read (TBR) list.


Happy 2017, everyone! I’m so excited for the New Year. It symbolizes a fresh start.

Do you have any goals for January?


Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
