A Word on 2012 Goals

Every year, I post about goals.  At the end of every year, I've usually fallen short in some aspect or another. Sometimes, I realize that I've set a nearly unmeasurable goal.  (As I did in the case of "Things I've Been Putting Off." What counts?  What doesn't count?)

In other cases, I began the year with a goal in mind, only to realize that I'm going to redirect.  This is precisely what happened in the research that never happened for the GRE.  A big part of that was because I got a job.  Having been a stay-at-home mom for 13.5 years, I was sure that I'd have to go back to school in order to get an interesting job where I could be in charge of my own schedule.  Yet here I sit with such a job, and a year and a half before Beck is in 1st grade, and, therefore in school full-time. 

I've decided to sit back see where this takes me.

Sometimes goals are much harder than they appeared.  Thus continues my struggle with organizing. Still, I'm incredibly proud of what I got done last year and I'm working to build on that this year as well.
