This post contains affiliate links. This week we finally got to have a “normal” week after many weeks of chaos and busy-ness since we found out we were going to move back in June. It feels nice to get into a more regular routine.
Here are my 2022 goals part 2: week 11 of 24.
My Goals for 2022 Part 2
These new home improvement goals are based on our new house.
Well, we found out thanks to two heavy rainstorms that our basement leaks in one area, so I’m adding a new goal for the year with the house.
Paint the front family room. This is done, but I can’t show you pictures because we still have a few boxes to unpack. Paint the downstairs hallway. Paint PB & J Girl’s bedroom. I’ll have pictures to share next week. (I wanted to share this week, but she says it’s not picture worthy yet!) Paint Cuddle Bug’s bedroom. This room had green carpet and dark yellow walls. We can’t afford to replace the carpet yet, but Cuddle Bug embraced it and picked a light green comforter and a light green accent wall. I love the way she embraced a color she would never chose and doesn’t really like.
- Replace the kitchen sink.
lawncareand snow removal equipment. (The owner of our new home kindly left their lawn mower and week wacker, so we don’t have to buy lawncare equipment.)
- Move or trim some of the trees and landscaping close to the house to let in more natural light. My husband started working on this last weekend, and already I see such a difference!
- Replace one of the bedroom windows. We have ordered this and paid 50 percent down. The window company originally said the install date would be mid-December (brrrr!), but now it’s looking like it will be sometime in early to mid-November.
- Fix the leaking crack in the basement.
Walk 175 Miles This Year
I finally started walking on the treadmill again!! I walked 2.5 miles for 61 minutes.
This goal is 75% complete. For the year, I’ve walked 131.4 miles on the treadmill, for 2549 minutes.
Start Weight Watchers Again
I started again this week, but, um, let’s just say that the week was a bit rocky. I’ll need some time to get into healthier eating habits after the last few months. The good news is that even though I haven’t followed Weight Watchers for the last almost five months, my weight has remained stable.
Read 40 Books
This goal is 77.5% complete. I didn’t finish any books this week. The girls and I are close to finishing an excellent one, though. I have completed 31 books in 2022:
Animal Farm (review coming soon)
I’m currently reading/listening to several books. (Check out my reading challenge to see what I plan to read this year.)
Write in My Journal 30 Times This Year
This goal is 60% complete. I have written in my journal 18 times this year.
Make a Recipe Binder
This goal is 2.7% complete. I finally started! My recipe book has room for 71 recipes, and this week I wrote down two of them.
Take Eight Local Trips
Three more trips to go! The girls and I took a trip to Delevan, NY, the details of which you can see under Trip #5.
This goal is 62.5% complete.
Trip #1: We took our first trip to a local pop-up history event set in the 1880s. We saw a blacksmith working and listened to a band play old time music from the 1880s. It was a small event but fun.
Trip #2: We went to the Japanese Children’s Day Festival!
Trip #3: We stopped by Michigan to visit my mom before we make our way to New York. We decided to visit Adams Blueberry Farm to pick some organic blueberries. My kids haven’t done this for 8 years, since we moved to Arizona. My husband and I both commented how nice it is to be back in a place where we can do activities like this.
In New York
Trip #5: I didn’t take any pictures, but we went to Bliss Family Farm’s Homeschooler Day. They had a small petting zoo, bowling with pumpkins, and a HUGE corn maze, which we were lost in for some time. We also got to each take a pumpkin home.
Trip #4: More details coming next week about our trip to Philly!
GOALS I ACHIEVED IN 2022
These are the goals I’ve achieved so far in 2022:

In our old house, our realtor hooked us up with her contract. He and his team were able to finish our master bathroom for much less than the tile company we hired last December to remodel the master shower.

Replace the master bathroom towel holders(new addition)
Paint the master bathroom ceiling(new addition)

Travel to Michigan
We went to Michigan!! We’ve actually gone to Michigan five times this year because of all the back-and-forth driving we’ve done between Arizona and New York and getting Bookworm settled in college there. This goal has been accomplished many times over.
There you have it, my goals for 2022! I’d love to hear how your goals are progressing in the new year.
