2010 Goals

Yearly Goal: Earn an Honor Bee

If you don’t have a clue what an honor bee is, I’ll tell ya. The personal progress book states, “The honor bee charm was historically given to young women who were willing to do more than was required. To continue your progress, you may earn an Honor Bee to accompany your Young Womanhood Recognition medallion.” To do this you must read the Book of Mormon and complete a total of 40 hours of service. It also says that it will take about a year so that is a perfect goal for 2010.

Write in my journal everyday on pregnancy progress

Continue to read the reader’s choice books and pregnancy books

Attend the temple once a month till July

Monthly Goals:

January-Since this month is the time to get back into shape and start a new exercise program, I thought it would be perfect to start now. Of course, I’ll have to modify the exercises I do since I’m pregnant but I’m sure I can manage. It will also benefit me and my baby.

February-Express love and appreciation to Adrian everyday. After all, this is the month of love.

March-Do as the Lepricons do and save every penny to get the gold at the end of the rainbow. Spend less than $50 or $40 a week on groceries. Since Adrian is in his busy season, this may be a little too easy but it is a great goal to complete. Also, start saving for a 72 hour kit for Baby Reynolds.

April-Listen intently to General Conference and write notes on ways I can improve my life. Practice those things during the month of April.

May-Since this is one of the best birthday months of the year, I would like to remember birthdays. I will start early in January by writing down all of the birthdays I know on my calendar. I will then make an effort to buy cards or give my friends/family a call on their special day.

June-Relax! Check out some Yoga DVDs at the library. One more month till Baby Reynolds comes so be sure to take time and breathe.

July-Have a healthy baby! Pray everyday that Baby Reynolds will be healthy and happy.

August-Update photo albums and start a Baby Reynolds journal.

September-Memorize all of the Young Women’s names and the Young Women’s scripture. Practice calling them by name to remember.

October-Update 72 hour kits. Make sure Baby Reynolds has one.

November-Update Christmas card list.

December-Go to the Humanitarian Center and provide service. Be sure to call ahead of time to schedule a time that will work with my busy life.
