Resolutions for the New Year

Actually, I've decided against resolutions.  The word is so unyielding and unforgiving.  Resolute.  It's the kind of word that makes you feel as though you might as well give up on your best intentions if you mess up even in the slightest way.

So, I have goals for 2011.  One of my goals is to add a new post to my blog at least once a week.  Another is to join Weight Watchers and to get my self straightened out.  Still another is to revise Beulah and submit to a minimum of 50 editors/agents as well as writing a new entry for this year--already halfway plotted.  Of course, there are home goals, too.  Some of those goals revolve around keeping the house cleaner.  Others revolve around being a better wife and mother.

So, what about you?  Any goals for 2011?


  1. Yes, GOALS is the word. I haven't read Beulah, but from what I know about her, you are definitely onto something. So take care of your husband and your kids and Beulah. Don't worry a whit about keeping your house cleaner. There are things that will matter when you are on your deathbed; that isn't one of them. You are an inspiration!

  2. Thanks, Pam! Maybe I should dial that housework goal down to "clean enough for people to walk without tripping"?
