Resolutions for 2009

In reviewing my goals from last year, it looks like I did pretty well. I got about half of them. I didn't manage to finish the upstairs bathroom, but I did install a drip irrigation system in the front yard. I finished interviewing my grandmother for her life history, but I didn't catch up on printing out my photo-journal. I never transcribed any more songs out of "Ancient Music of Ireland" but I did build another 29 string harp.

I completed both of my writing goals for 2008. I went to the BYU Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Workshop AND I finished my second novel. However, my second novel was NOT the novel that I thought would be my second novel. Irony, irony.

My goals for this year:

  1. Get in the habit of saying a prayer the moment I crawl out of bed
  2. Find someone who wants to visit with the missionaries (anybody out there? Just let me know!)
  1. Toilet train my youngest child (Last one! HOORAY!)
  2. Take a family relationships course with my husband
  1. Finish a third book, start a fourth
  2. Read and review one recently published book every week
  1. Learn to sing full voice in my upper register
  2. Practice the harp - learn some new songs
  1. Do ALL the bathrooms - new tile, new paint, new fixtures
  2. Plant spring, summer, and fall gardens, and keep the plot tidy
  1. Learn to express how I feel before I get so angry I'm about to burst.
  2. Do less and be more
