Day 8/30

Day Eight - Short term goals for this month and why.




Hmmm, short term goals...I can't remember when I stopped making real attainable goals, maybe it was when I was thirty.  I remember sitting down with Joel at Chili's for my birthday and we talked about goals for the coming years.  That may have been the last time I really thought about personal goals.  It's even been about two years before we've made goals for the family unit or as a couple, mainly because we haven't had our marriage retreat in that amount of time.  We've still chosen family verses but haven't set any goals.  So, it's been awhile. 
I was going to say that my goal for the month is to eat a lot of cake, because it's my birthday month, but that seems a little shallow, even for me.  And then I thought I would do something lofty like sending out my manuscript, but that seems trite now.  I've had the darn thing written and partially edited for almost two years and haven't made a positive move in that direction at all.  I think it's something that I think I should do but I'm not really interested in doing it in real life. It's almost like it's a goal of a character that I portray in a story, but that's not really who I am.  Cause really, what are the options for writers that don't really want to be published? Right blogging.
 
Okay, so what is my goal for the month of February? Maybe it's to write more letters.  That sounds like an excellent idea.  Oh and I need to finish Joel's other sock in time for Valentines.  The first one took me almost a year, and I've been working on the other one for about a month and just finished the gusset and am working on the foot part.  Which is personally the best part for me because the end is in sight. 
 
What about you? Do you have any goals for February?
