Monthly Goals - The "I didn't feel motivated" Edition

January SucksIsn't January the saddest month? Its freezing and our homes have been de-Christmassed but we're expected to function. *sigh*

Here's what I do every January:

1. Doctor's Visits - Its time to check everything. This January the braces threw my schedule off so I don't need to see the dentist until March. I don't think I need to see the eye doctor either.

2. Fund the ROTH - I block out how much this pulls out of my savings but its A LOT.

3. Look for Sweaters - January is the best month for sweaters, socks and warm things.

4. Buy Soda, Submit Rebates - January and June are the two big months for free after rebate sodas. I still have 5 unopened 12 packs from last June.

5. Fiddle with Plants - Either they empathise with my winter gloom or they miss sunlight - either way my plants become listless every January. My goal is to keep them alive until spring returns.
