What's the goal?

Do you make resolutions? I generally do not, although I do like to reflect on the past year. What did I do wrong? What did I do right? How can I improve myself and do better? Things like that....

The new year has started off pretty well - we had a nice day yesterday, just hanging out. Arun had gotten a parking garage for Christmas, but I had put it back so that he would not get overwhelmed with all the new toys - I put it together New Year's Eve and we he had so much fun playing with it. He also got the companion car wash, but I am saving that for the next snow day. Anjali spent the day smiling and rolling around on the floor.

I have missed blogging, but am glad I took the break to get other things done. I would like to get back into the swing of things, back to my usual 3-4 posts weekly here. My schedule on the FoodieBytes blog will be Tues/Thurs and I am thinking I will do the BoobLog on Mon/Wed. I hope that having a schedule of sorts will keep me on track.

Speaking of resolutions, Lifehacker.com has a great piece on goal making and some tools to help you manage your resolutions, if you did make some resolutions this year.

Also, Scribbit has a cool piece on "swing-ball bowling" which looks to be a great activity for bitter days ahead of us. I am totally sacrificing a tennis ball for this cause.

I've missed your blog. You totally have to post pics of the kiddos from Christmas. :-)

As far as resolutions, I don't usually make them, but set some goals that i'd like to accomplish. :-)

I spent my day physically paying for drinking 2 glasses of wine.

*sob*

But by the way, sparkling shiraz to the tune of $20 half bottles ROCKS.

That just about does me in for alcohol consumption for the rest of the year...

I made some long term and short term goals.. all with an end date and very measurable :)

Some fun some challenging... we shall see.. we shall see :)

Happy New Year! Glad to see you posting, I've missed your blog.

I'm not one for making goals on the New Year, I tend to make goals for myself all the time. If I make them on the new year they never materialize but if I just set a random goal I'm much more successful.

I keep thinking, in the back of my mind, that I need to sit down and set some goals for the year but I keep putting it off. Thanks for the kick in the pants.

I, as usual, am trying not to go crazy. But you already know that. If I make it through the year with no Xanax, I will consider it a total victory.
