So, following the the footsteps of like a million other people, here are some completely attainable goals I have set for next year:
(in no particular order)
Initial plan would be to have no house guests for 2011. But seeing that Kacie is still with us
Realistic Goal #1:
No house guests from
February through December, 2011
(minus the occasional overnight 'crashed
here in lieu driving drunk' friend.)
I'm going to write one. Maybe a couple. Maybe several. But definitely not all this year. Despite totally swearing the same thing last year,
Realistic Goal #2:
Finish when I finish.
So, we're going to build another. If the market will allow us to sell our current home for what we want, we will sell and build again. I've already sketched out the floor plan and bought some really cool light fixtures. Brad swears this one will be smaller and
Realistic Goal #3:
Have a nice house completely
paid for by the time we turn 40.
(obviously that one is longer than a year)
Possibly start one this year.
Realistic Goal #3b:
Do NOT build 2nd house in the winter.
That totally sucked.
That's right. I'm going to take a pole dancing class. Blame Groupon. I've also convinced a friend to join me. I will not post photos. OK, I might post photos of the bruises. I hear there are bruises. *Insert part where I talk about this being completely about my self-confidence and that it's a really, really great work out-or so I hear. And that Brad did not flip out in excitement when I told him.*
Realistic Goal #4:
Attend the classes.
Do not break anything.
Just say 'no'
I am a people pleaser.
Realistic Goal #5:
Do not agree to make 700
cookies in one week.
As well as a birthday cake,
petit fours and more cookies.
All at the same time.
Realize that I am not a bakery.
I am only one person with a
full time job and a husband.
(Who's trying to write a book, build a
house and not break her neck.
Should be simple.)
This honestly will be the hardest thing on this list. If you've read any of my posts here, you know that I can be a bit
Realistic Goal #6:
Don't cry in public.
Have fun at parties.
Remember that I'm 30 not 80.
So there you have it. Six (and a half-ish) perfectly attainable goals for 2011.
