New Year Goals

I don't like the word resolution because it sounds like something that I won't do. But if it is a goal, then that sounds more positive! So my goals for this year are:
 1. Finish the many books that I have started. Which are North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, To Kill a Mockingbird, Mission of Motherhood, to name a few. I have a habat of starting a book with the intention of finishing it, but since I am such a slow reader, I don't finish in in a timely fashion, and then another book comes along. I have been reading North and South since before I was pregnant! I remember trying to make headway in it in the spring of 2009 before Israel was born! I MUST finish it this year.

2. I would like to play the piano more. I teach piano, but don't play much myself. I would like Israel to grow up seeing the piano played and not just used as decoration most of the time.

3. Finish my piano certification. I have to have everything turned in By May 2nd. So this in not an option. But it is still something that I have dragged on for the past 5 going on 6 years, that I just need to get done. Then I will have the burden lifted.

4. I would like to go to Boston in the Fall. I have a friend that just moved up there, but she is only there for a year. So if we are going to go to Boston and have a place to stay, this would be the time to do it. So hopefully that will work out.

Those are all the ones I can think of right now. What are your goals this year???

I have to admit that I didn't set any goals for this year. Its not too late tho so I still might sit down and brainstorm. A friend recommended setting monthly goals instead of year-long goals. That might actually be more realistic for me. :)

If you'all are looking for vacation spots, you're more than welcome to visit us in San Antonio. There is so much to do and see: the Riverwalk, Alamo, Six Flags, Sea World, the waterpark in New Braunfels. . . . We would love to have you and would even babysit while you and Joel had a special night out.
