Nine in Nine

Resolutions, shmesolutions.
I don't usually make New Years Resolutions.  This is because I make resolutions almost everyday.  I usually get up in the morning and set some kind of goals.  For example, I might say to myself, "Today I'm going to _______."  This blank could be filled in with a number of different things-- avoid junk food, go to sleep earlier, remain calm, go for a run, read a book.  Unfortunately, I'm a great goal-setter and a not-so-great goal-getter.  But thankfully, tomorrow's always another day and a chance to do better.
So being that this is 2009: The Year of the Mom, here are nine major goals that I plan on accomplishing in the next year.
1) Read at least a dozen books.
2) Learn at least four new piano pieces.
3) Run a 5K.
4) Fit (comfortably) back into my pre-baby clothes.
5) Knit a hat for Liam.
6) Take a short (at least 2-night) vacation with Bill.
7) Quit biting my nails.
8) Find and serve on a volunteer community service project.
9) Edit/organize all of the video and photo footage we've accumulated in the past three years.

Whew! That's quite a list and quite a challenge. It's great that you are setting some goals that are just for you and not all about the kids. It's so hard for moms to focus on themselves. Of course, as a teacher, you're used to major challenges, so I'm sure you'll check them all off soon.
