Things I did today to meet my 2017 resolutions:
- Let my husband sleep while I took down and stored all of the indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations. We’re both fighting a nasty sinus infection, but he’s been hit a lot worse and slept poorly last night.
- Called my father to wish him a happy 77th birthday.
- Posted a comic from one of my favorite sites – The Oatmeal – to Facebook with the hashtag #MyOwnHappinessProject
- Created a new budget for 2017 using the online tool YNAB (You Need A Budget). Although it is a paid service, unlike Mint and other common budgeting tools, it is more intuitive to me, offers a 34-day free trial, and has a number of handy workshops on personal finance and professional development.
