5 for Five

Monday, December 17, 2012

Here we are, once again, writing out our lists and getting everything ready for another week. I'm very happy to share with you how I've done this tragic week and see how everything has gone with everybody elses goals.

Last week on 5 for Five...  ( it makes me think of the introduction of a tv show, like when they say... Previously on Revenge... yep... I'm catching up on Revenge on Netflix)

1. Keep writing the nightly note cards to J. - I was actually able to write all the cards on the correct day, however, mailing them out did not work so well. I missed the mail one day and apparently didn't put stamps on them, so they didn't go anywhere. Yeah, big mess. I'm going to try harder this week for my final week of Christmas note cards for J.

2. Finish wrapping all of my presents. - I wrapped all the Christmas gifts. They all look so wonderful.

3. Read to at least 50% in The Happiness Project on my kindle.

4. Find a new craft project to do.- My original intentions were to make a scarf. BUT I didn't have the time to go out and get the very soft kind of yarn, so I dug through my HUGE box of hand-me-down cross stitching stuff and decided that my new craft project would be an Irish Blessing cross stitching.

5. Keep a journal/diary and write in it 3 times. - I am apparently not very good at this whole journaling thing. I mean, I did write, but the first night I wrote, I put down the wrong date. I found the next night that I had "already wrote" for that day. haha

5/5 pretty good. I hope that next week can be just as good!

1. Finish up J's note card writing strong!

2. Write 3 more times in my journal.

3. Try my best to meet up with all of my friends during the holidays.
It has been a while since I've spoken to some of my high school and college friends. I have messaged them all and am going to try my best to meet up with them for lunch or something while we are all back in the same area/state.

4. Finish the Happiness Project on my kindle.
I really want to be able to plan it out so I can start my own Happiness Project come the first of the year.

5. Be cheerful the week before Christmas.
I don't want to get upset with J because he is tired and doesn't want to skype or take anything anybody says to me in a harsh way. I want to be glad that I get to spend time with all of the people I love.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!



  1. I love cross stitching! That blessing is beautiful. :)

  2. That craft is awesome! I'm reading The Happiness Project too! It's a great book right? Way to go getting 5 out of 5 done. Good luck this week! :-)

  3. I need to finish my Happiness Project too! I started it last year and rediscovered.
    Also bought the Happiness at Home sequel!

  4. Everyone keeps talking about the Happiness Project...I think that's a sign that I need to read the book for myself!

    Good luck on your goals this week!

  5. 5/5 that is AWESOME! YAY for you girl! You have some great goals for the week ahead- I just KNOW that you can accomplish them all! Sending good thoughts your way! I think I need to read the Happiness Project, too! I've heard such great things about it. Definitely going on my reading list!
