So, as far as the Pledge goes... I blew it.
I was doing really well at first. Then I got hit with a serious double whammy: Historicon and peewee football.
Bought a lot of stuff at Historicon. A lot.
My youngest son (Dane) started his second season of peewee football a few days after we got back from Historicon. Practice three days a week and games on Saturday. Add in church obligations on Wednesday and Sunday, and... no time spent painting, essentially. The football lasted until December 5 - the Superbowl (we won!).
So, should I take the Pledge again this year? I don't think so. Two years in a row I have failed it. This year, I think monthly goals may be better. And so, the monthly goals for the first month of 2010:
- Finish the aeronef fleet for the Papal States
- Paint ten 25mm feral Martians (RAFM High Martians)
- Paint forty 15mm Zulus
- Finish twenty 15mm German Luftschiffetruppen
I think I can get those done, and maybe more. I hope to have some help on the Zulus from a friend.
Wish me luck!
