I love making goals. I’ve done them yearly, monthly, with other time limits (like the 101 in 1001), and with no time limits. All kinds inspire and work for me, but I also know when to cut back because I don’t like setting unrealistic expectations. This year I am considering seasonal goals starting in the spring, but first I have maternity leave! There is a lot of recovering and adjusting going on so far, but I know I won’t be in pain for too much longer and with Meredith going to daycare most days I should have more time than I am used to. Here is what I want to accomplish before heading back to work:
The current state of our coffee table, where I am camped out for maximum relaxing.
>send out birth announcements
>send thank-you notes
>blog the birth story
>catch up on project life
>complete my holiday minibook
>watch some TV: on my list of shows are Downton Abbey (I’ve only seen season 1), Game of Thrones, 30 Rock (I’m in season 5), and Sherlock.
>redo the nursery to make it more gender neutral
>stay up to date on Liam’s baby book
>complete his birth cross stitch
>see a dermatologist
I really do think I can complete all of these, but we’ll see. So far I’ve been pretty good at the TV-watching goal. :)
