Time is on My Side

As I looked back through the last year's worth of posts, and the ever looming birthday "to-do" list I realized that time seems to be a huge factor in my life. Shocking no? I'm always counting down to something, or rushing from one event to another or waiting for time to slow down. It's a vicious cycle that carries me from January to December.

Today, I opened an e-mail from a co-worker reminding me that there are 13 days left in January. 13 days to accomplish something this month. And that made me think, what if I set one goal each month to accomplish rather than a whole list of things? If I choose one project each month and set a goal for myself instead of starting half a dozen things and never completing them.

So that's what I've decided to do this year. Instead of making a thousand resolutions and wasting time, I'm going to set one goal at the start of each month (anything from weight loss to quilting to running a 5k) that will be my fait accompli.

My January goal is to organize my craft desk/space. It's become a little out of control after the holidays and is in desperate need of some decluttering before I embark on anything new for Valentine's Day.

What will you accomplish this month?

Six Word Saturday

Feels like I can breathe again.

Second semester hit hard and fast, and so did the Cedar pollen. Thank goodness for a three day weekend and a rainstorm to help with both issues!

You say it's your birthday?

Well, it's her birthday too...

Happy Birthday to my favorite jenga-playing sister in law!

It's been a wild and crazy ride for Sheila since she became a part of our family, but we're glad she's one of us :) Recently, Sheila & Marty answered the call to start on the path of international adoption. You can follow their adventures here.

Wordless Wednesday

My job as an English teacher is safe.
