Goals for 2013
Finish the current work-in-progress by the end of February. Actually, this one is a pretty top priority. It's been awhile since I've written a book, for various reasons and it's time to get back in the game.
Finish at least one more manuscript before Dec. 2013. See above re getting back in the game.
Book a trip (and go to) somewhere in Europe. We have many, many aeroplan miles we must use, or lose. Nice problem to have but only the air fare is free. Which is why we haven't used them already.
Lose ten pounds by May 4 (aka Daughter's Wedding Day). Although the dress I'm wearing is forgiving (empire waist, jersey knit), I need to lose at least 10 lbs. anyway.
Eat less junk food. See above.
Get back to walking either outside or on the treadmill EVERY DAY. And not just because I need to lose 10 lbs. I feel better and sleep much better if I exercise.
Spend more time in the hammock at the cottage. How can I say that after the above? Because last summer I spent a lot of time doing necessary yard work. The year before that, it was painting. I don't want to have it ingrained in my brain that cottage = work. That kinda defeats the purpose of having a cottage, doesn't it?
Finish making the small front yard at the cottage all garden.Again, this seems to go against what I just said, but I think it can be done without becoming a Major Project. I can hopefully get the bulk of the work done in a weekend, or maybe a week.
Be more positive. I've been finding myself seeing negatives before positives far too much lately, and that's got to stop. To be honest, I think this may be the most difficult goal of all. Thinking optimistically, though, it may also yield the best results for a happier me.
Whatever your goals are, and whether we reach them or not, I wish all of you a happy, healthy, safe and wonderful New Year!
