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.
