December - share your goals and progress

Hope it was ok I started a new thread! Time for new lists!!!

This thread will be a place for us to all share our daily to-do lists and goals as well as our monthly hopes and dreams.

Somedays you may feel so ambitious, and will fly through your checklist, while other days it may be a feat to crawl out of bed. This thread is not intended to be used as a comparison measure to see which person accomplishes the most each day, but rather a friendly place to encourage each other, and give one another other the pats on the backs we all so desperately need.
