Let’s Do a Little Goal Planning

Let’s Do a Little Goal Planning

January 3, 2011 /

Whoa… who fell off the face of the earth? That would be this girl. But you know what? It was totally worth it. Christmas break was a heck of a lot of fun and I’m just now getting my feet back on the ground and groceries in the fridge… although we did eat lunch at Costco today. So much for the groceries.

But I just have so much to share with all of you! Toys for Tots, Scrooge, the pageant, Christmas in San Diego, Christmas in Olympia, Wii nights and New Years! I’m going to start backwards though and get into some “resolutions”. I don’t like the word resolutions but how about “goals”? I love setting goals and reaching them. I also like making lists and checking off things. So this is sort of the same thing.

The Hubs and I were lying in bed last night and got to talking about our goals for this next year. My number one goal?

1. PATIENCE. I don’t have any.

It’s true. I’m pretty much the most impatient person you’ve ever met. I hate red lights, slow walkers, grocery lanes, spills, accidents, being late and yoga. All because they slow me down. I just want to go go go. I asked the Hubs how I can be more patient and he said, “You need to realize that people mean well, more often than not. And that not everything is as big a deal as you make it.”

Wow. That really summed it up, didn’t it?

I also asked him what I could do to be a better wife. He shrugged. Hrm. I’ll check in with him later. He’s the best.

Goal number 2.

2. Look into starting my photography business.

This is just scary… but so awesome at the same time! I’ve loved the sessions I’ve done for friends and can’t wait to learn everything I can about photography. I have SO much to learn and just need someone to sit me down and walk me through my camera a little bit. Any takers?

I can finally share some of these because they were Christmas gifts and had to be kept secret.




Goal number 3.

3. Find that thing that gets me excited.
That could be the whole photography thing. It could be a great musical or show in which I’m involved. It could be something new with the kid’s choir. Whatever it is… I want it to push me and get me going.

Goal number 4.

4. Connect with my friends.
This is for the friends who don’t live in my city or even state. I have a whole mess of people who get bumped down the list the minute I get busy. I don’t want that to happen as much.

How about you all? What are your goals for this year? Do you do resolutions?

P to the S… it’s great to be back! Can’t wait to update everyone on my doings!

Double P to the S…. anybody want to make me a new blog header? I’m pretty much incompetent and will make you cookies.
