It's 2014? That'll probably sound weird to me until at least March.
I'm looking forward to the new year, despite the fact that it doesn't quite feel right yet. I've been enjoying reading everyone's goals too and have some of my own to throw out there:
Put at least $2000 toward mortgage prepayment - Last year, we put an extra $1550 toward the principal, and I'd like to beat that! :)
Save for daycare - I'm not pregnant. And I know it's impossible to fully prepare to be a parent - but this is something we can start now. Hopefully it'll help us get used to the added expense way before we have a baby. Childcare estimates seem to run about $150/week in our area, so this amounts to setting aside $300 per paycheck.
Finish my degree - Should be done in May! Woohoo :)
Read 50 books - I read 53 books in 2012 and 65 in 2013, so 50 is reasonable. (I track it over at Goodreads.) Setting my goal higher than this (I tried for 100 in 2011) seems to backfire on me - I just went for short, easy books rather than reading more books of higher quality. So 50 it is, and if I sail past it - oh well! :)
Travel at least twice - We're planning a week long trip to California for our anniversary in June, and I'd like to plan another trip (most likely a long weekend?).
Learn something new together - We took a cooking class together in 2012 (that we still talk about!) and talked about taking a photography class this year, but it didn't happen. So onto the goal list it goes! One possibility is a surfing lesson while we're in California.
Read a book together - Mr. G isn't a huge reader, but he does enjoy audiobooks. So he's listened to several of my favorite books (like Unbroken) which I really love because then we can talk about them, rate them, and if it exists, watch the movie version together. Mr. G's now working on the Harry Potter series (I love them!) and I'd like to continue this practice when he's finished Harry Potter.
I'd love to hear about your goals for 2014. :)
