Happy 2009!

This is a celebratory year for me! -- I have a birthday next month and will be of the age that ends in an "0". I also have an anniversary at the end of the year and that will also end in an "0". So, perhaps that is a "theme" for me this year -- accomplishing or finishing lists tasks whose total ends in "0".

My first task is my resolutions for the year -- I usually don't make them, so I am going to consider them as "goals" instead of resolutions.

Goal #1: Being ready for Christmas 2009 by December 1, 2009. One of my daughters comments that if we made two gifts per month, we would be done by December. So, I have made it my goal to complete at least two gifts per month.

Goal #2: Making my Christmas cards in July (or at least this summer). I am endeavored to make my Christmas cards for several years and have ended up purchasing them instead of making them. I need to start earlier to accomplish this goal.

Goal #3: Reading through the Bible this year. I have wanted to do this for several years -- I tend to begin, but not finish. I am setting a goal to finish this year.

Goal #4: Reading one book for pleasure per month. I love to read and have a stack of books waiting for me.

Goal #5 - Updating my blog on a more regular basis -- I haven't definitely decided exactly how often, but I think it is important to do so.

Well, that does it! Five lofty goals, which is enough to begin with. I shall be updating the progress on this goals on my blog on a regular basis.
