Hi there, Mrs. 1500 today after a long holiday hiatus.
Our Christmas was good. We spent time at home with my side of the family, then packed up and headed west to visit with the Mister’s side. One very long (10+ hours!) car trip got us to his parents house, where we ate too many cookies and received too many presents. Both girls wanted to open their 200-piece Hello Kitty play houses in the car. No thanks!
So I took off the last couple of weeks, and wanted to check back in with you. Last year, we announced big plans for the first 6 months of the year, eating vegetarian, spending no money, etc. I can’t remember them all and, like almost all New Year’s Resolutions, they fell by the wayside, forgotten.
However, I earned my real estate license in March of 2014. I sold exactly zero houses the entire year. I hope to change that in 2015.
We want to sell some of our stock, and convert it to real estate. Big plans to flip houses in the coming years, but first I have to find one to buy. Our market is red hot and houses that aren’t under contract within days of being listed tend to sit around forever, with something major wrong. I hope to find at least one and maybe even two houses to flip in 2015.
I have a bit of a temper. I see red whenever someone cuts me off on the roads. I can be a bit snarky. I am trying to change this. This will probably be my most trying goal.
Mr. 1500 note: “A bit of a temper?” Understatement! Mrs. 1500’s father has been known to fly off the handle in a nanosecond; calm to red-faced, full-on yelling in a snap. Mrs. 1500 is exactly the same. I fear her wrath when she reads this…
I want to spend more time with my kids. We have been working on our house almost since we bought it. While I am a stay at home mom, I primarily have been doing projects and unpacking. I want to spend more time with the girls and with Mr. 1500.
I eat like crap. I love sugar. I LOVE SUGAR!!! I have got to stop eating so much of it. We visited one of my many cousins, and she cooks like a Goddess. She has also been vegetarian since birth. As Mr. 1500 says, “I don’t miss meat when your cousin is cooking.” She is really amazing. I want to learn to cook like she does, so that we don’t miss the meat.
Mr. 1500 note: Last summer, Mrs. 1500 was running significant mileage every week and wondering why the weight wasn’t coming off. I started paying attention to her diet and noticed that she was putting 500 calories (!!!) of creamer into her coffee every morning. Does sugar have anything to do with violent temper?
So enough about me. Let’s talk about you. What are your plans for 2015?
