2012 Goals or Mumbling

Many years as I've begun the New Year--I know.  I know exactly what I want to accomplish this year.  But this year is hazy.

I'll be finishing up being PTA President this year, after that, I want to slow down a bit.  I'd love to apply for Graduate School in 2014.  To prepare for that I need to take a GRE course and practice tests and see if I need to take a couple classes to get those all important references (or will my PTA work do.)

But I don't want to do any of that until after my term as PTA Pres is done.  So it's this year-ish, but that could really bleed into next year and is hard to measure on my sidebar.

I want to get organized.  This has been my goal every year for so long that I can't even remember when I started writing it down.  But I'm determined this year.  I'm hiring a professional organizer to help me.  Seriously.  I really hope it works and it sticks.  But, again how does one measure "getting organized"?

I can keep my Book of Mormon count going.  I could keep my temple count going, too.  Though I don't feel a real need to change either of these goals.  I perfectly content with where I am with these.

I've been thinking about trying to tackle "things I've been putting off that I really need to do".  I have many and varied of these.  Everything from getting out Christmas cards (for last year) to getting Nathan a cub scout belt for all those belt loops.  (Nate's 9.5, so he's half way done with cubs.  And he has a belt, but it's too big.  And I can't find it to exchange it, so after more than a year since I've seen the belt, I just need to bite the bullet and buy a new one.)

How many of these should I try to accomplish? How do I track it?

And, of course I need to lose weight--this year more desperately than in year's past.  But I think putting it on my sidebar jinxed me.  That and quitting Weight Watchers. So I'm not going to publicly track that, because it undoes me.

So here I am again.  Mumbling and thinking and not sure how to go forward.
