Resolution Check in - 2022

Every year I do 10 resolutions for myself and 5 for my kids, and then don't look at them until the next year when I see if I actually did any of these things. Here's what I wanted to do in 2022. And what I actually did.
10) Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. 1 point

I did this, mostly. It's dropped a tiny bit lately, but I'm taking the point.

9) Exercise consistently 5 times a week. .5 point

I did this for the majority of the year, but from November on, I've been going just 3 times when I can because things got really busy.

8) Keep my nails nice. 1

Amazingly, I'm still not back to biting my nails. They aren't long, but they aren't stubs and I try to paint them every couple weeks or so.

7) Get good at this job. 1

Killing it. So much so that they gave me another, harder, job to do at the same time.

6) Fix three things about the house 0

I fixed not one big thing. I did get Carlos to re-put-up a shelf that had fallen. LOL

5) Make $100,000. 1

$116,503.17 - I did this by working 2 full-time jobs, 2 part-time jobs, and 2 regular freelance jobs

4) Work on my freelancing book 0

I did no work on this at all. Why isn't there more time in the day?

3) Read 10 books 0

I read 2.5 books, lol

2) Get this house clean 0

This is actually a disaster. I am working hard on deep cleaning right now so I can maybe hire someone to help keep it clean. Right now, my house is a hellscape.

1) Fix all landscaping and back deck. 0

Complete fail. I really want to do this, but I just didn't have time to even touch it since last year. It's even worse.

4.5 points. Not great, but working all those jobs leaves me very little time.
For my kids and I, I resolve the following:

5) Help them navigate tween-teen years, be someone they can trust and love. 1

We're going through it, but things are slowly improving for the long game.

4) Get their rooms cleaned and organized so they can decorate the way they like .5

Nat's is cleaned, Dulce's is getting there. Keeping up with it is another matter.

3) Save $10,000 more each for them. 1


2) Have one conversation with that that lasts 10 minutes or more a day. (Dinner doesn't count.) 1

I mean, almost.

1) Teach them to cook 0

I did not do this. But my kid did learn how to use the toaster this year, so there's that.

3.5 points. Still have to get on that cooking thing.
