2011 Goals

Bet you thought I forgot or reneged on posting my goals, but I was chewing on them a bit.  They must be very gristly because I can't seem to masticate them into anything better.  So, I'm adding two extra ones:

  1. I will blog more posts this year than any previous year
  2. I will review and update my 2011 goals at least quarterly
So, without further ado, I present my

2011 GOALS:

  1. Pay more attention to family finances
  2. Quarterly Dates

  5. Join a band

Hmm... I sense that these are all fairly easily accomplished?

Regarding you music resolutions:
#3: my nephew received a harmonica for Christmas
#4: Always thought it would be cool to learn how to play bass. I was offered a bass guitar by an old school friend, but never saw it. Come to think of it I haven't seen him in years either.

Good luck with your resolutions.

Fairly easily accomplished? No, not really.

The health stuff I CAN do, but it is increasingly difficult to get enough time for myself.

We've been trying to go on regular dates for 20 years now, never succeeded yet,so I'm guessing that it must be hard to do.

I've had an harmonica for over 20 years, can't get the durn thing to play a song, and again there is that time thing.

NaNoEdMo is 50 hours of editing your novel, I've tried it once and didn't get there.

All of these are withing my power, if I can get the time and work on them hard enough.

The last two, well, they are not within my power, so they may be the most difficult of all. Big Corps are very heavy handed and indiscriminate with their axe.
