January 5th: Go Home Directly After Clocking Out for a Month

Yesterday was a big day! I checked off a major thing- I got a dog! A puppy to be completely accurate. She’s doing great. The next few months will be challenging as she accumulates to the house, understands my other dog Mia and learns all her training.

I’m excited for the adventure and decided this is a perfect item to kick off today.

I am a bartender so there are many days when I get off and sit down to have a drink with friends after shift. With a new pup in the house I know how important it is to be home with her as much as possible.

So, even though I am off work today, I will kick this off starting today and leave work directly after clocking out until February 5th… and of course I will try and continue that into the year… but baby steps!

Plus, it will give me extra time to start on that reading list I created on the 1st.

P.S. I used the cute picture of my sweet new pup, Bella, just to draw you in.

April 9th: Buy a Houseplant

So I have been watering my friend Kelly’s plants or the last few weeks and it inspired me to check this thing off my list. It really is nice having plants around the house, so this might not be the only one I get! 🌱

So I googled places to buy house plants and after I went to three places that ended up being grow from seed and professional landscaping places, rather than just a place to buy plants, I headed to Home Depot. They actually have quite a nice selection. 

I ended up getting a Pothos Plant. I found this information about it, Pothos Plants, and the upside is, it seems pretty hard to kill. 😂


I got a cut little pot and it fits perfectly on the little table near my bed. 

If (when) I get more it will definitely some of the ones on this list – House plants to Improve Your Health.
