New Year Bucket List

A new year is upon us and with that, it is time to take a look back at everything we have accomplished in the last year and set our sights on what we hope to accomplish this year. With a baby on the way, I won’t make my list too extravagant, but I would like to try to keep myself motivated to be active and not let my current ailments get the better of me. I must remain an active and vital member of my growing family. With that said, here is my (never finished) bucket list for 2017!

  1. Send out Christmas cards… I’ve never done this before. ha.
  2. Explore local and distant parks with our free Parks Canada Pass!
  3. Get my consumer debt down to $5,000 (currently around $13,000; down from $32K two years prior)
  4. Date my partner twice a month, minimum
  5. Get my email inbox down to zero messages… From its current ~1,200
  6. Keep up three videos a week for my YouTube Channel
  7. Invest time on this website; ensure 3 posts per week, minimum
  8. Employ a weekly or bi-weekly screen-free evening with the family as a whole
  9. Each month, try cooking a new cuisine from other countries.
  10. Start a recipe book with/for Aine
  11. Take the kids on at least two camping trips
