So I was looking back on my posts this year (yeah I know not too many) and the one where I posted my goals – I didn’t do a very good job with my goals for the year lol — I still have a few months to work on them at least right!!!!! And it seems like so much has changed since I wrote those posts.
I’ve stopped using the skin stuff I made – it just wasn’t controlling the oily skin I have — I really wanted something that was natural and would control the oil I would get part way thru the day, my skin feels like a darn oil slick and also I wanted to try it because I wanted something that would control my son’s acne (poor kid he’s got the same skin I had when I was a teen) and it wasn’t working for him either. So after it was gone we didn’t make any more — I still have some of the moisturizer and I’ll use that in something else down the road. It did do good on getting rid of the blackheads and somewhat controlling the acne but I needed the oil control too so like I said once it was gone I didn’t make more and went back to my trustworthy skin care Mary Kay, I love just about every product so I’m back to using it. So one thing I won’t change again is using my Mary Kay. I just love the stuff.
Sorry I can’t stop raving about it all.
I used to sell Mary Kay years ago but stopped for personal reasons. Tim and I talked about it (more Tim convincing me than anything lol) and earlier this year I decided to start again – more so so I could get the Consultant discount (half off YAY). By far I think that the Mary Kay product line is the best.
Looking at my list of goals for the year –
we’ve not been doing a family scripture time, tho we did start having Family Home Evening more – it’s not every week but more than before so I’m happy about that.
Megan’s frame – I don’t even know where it is now that we’ve moved.
NOT really getting more active — more active than we were at this time last year.
Becoming more self-sufficient – that is happening but only cos we’re forced to do it — lots of things we’re using instead of buying them. All of our cleaning products we make at home — mainly using vinegar and water and some essential oils. I’ve tried to get Tim to make some things when he’s cooking instead of buying them but he doesn’t/won’t I don’t know how to get him to change lol I’m still scared to death to make soap so I’ve not done it – the lye just terrifies me. I need to take a class so I”m not so scared.
De-cluttering — well that really didn’t go as planned. When we moved it took us so long — ALL DAY plus three or four loads in a 20 foot rental truck plus both cars were full, and some people took some smaller loads in their cars over here.. It was crazy so yeah we really need to down size – I’ll take a picture of our garage here at the apt’s to show how much junk we have not to mention there are boxes still in David’s room and Megan’s room – but those are all their stuff. Still need to go thru it all, I just don’t want to admit how bad it is so I refuse to go to the garage now.
Following the budget – kinda forced into that one now LOL — if we over spent in just one place then we are messed up in all the others — I mean minor over spending — we spend an extra dollar then there’s a dollar less for rent or other bills. So we have to be SUPER careful.
72 hour kits and food storage — well until we get into somewhere that’s more permanent than I really don’t want to do very much on the food storage side of things we barely have room for the food we need on a semi daily basis. And the 72 hour kits due to costs its going to be very slow going – again I just wish I could get my family to get on board with me.
I know it’s a bit early to be doing a year in review but sometimes you need to do have a better outlook – things may not be how I want them to be but at least they are better than they were and that is the important thing.
