Reverb 11 Day 7 -- Today's Prompt: What goals for the year did you fail to meet?

I suppose it's not healthy to dwell on your failures, but perhaps taking a look at a few of them will help me figure out what I need to do differently next year. 

I failed to stop using credit cards. This is partially Uncle Sam's fault. We owed a lot at tax time and had to charge it. But later I decided to also use that credit card to buy hubs an insanely expensive suit and register for a writing conference. Guess I can't blame Uncle Sam for that. 

I failed to keep off the weight I lost at the beginning of the year. I'm eating Tropical Chewy Lemonheads & Friends as I type this so I guess we all know how that happened.

Sadly, I didn't do many of the fun things I planned to do with hubs this year such as have a picnic at Railroad Park or go to our city's popular Crawfish Boil. 

And my attempt to write a novel in 30 days through the National Novel Writing Month was an epic fail: I quit about one week in. 

Well, now that I'm thoroughly depressed, I'm going to go eat some more lemonheads. 

I'll be back tomorrow to discuss what I think I should have done differently. Maybe.

  1. There were many things I didn't do this year too. We should focus on what we DID achieve instead! (pass me a lemonhead)
