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.
