A New Year

I think it's time to start thinking about what we want out of the new year. First let's reflect, last year I wanted to get organized. 
My 'magic file cabinet' didn't exactly do it's job - all those papers are still laying around the house waiting for someone to put them away. 
My huge desk calendar that I mounted on the wall did not do it's job of recording all engagements to be sure that we never forgot a date (or a bill payment for that matter). To tell you the truth the file cabinet still has one completely empty drawer and a stack of papers shoved into the top one. The calendar just recently got the July - November pages torn off and believe me, I've missed many an engagement and bill payment!  If I remember correctly part of getting organized was to complete all the creative projects that have been started but never finished. Well, I still have several boxes of half complete projects.  I learned that 'get organized' is not a good goal. 

This year I'm thinking  more along the lines of read more books, go to dinner & a movie dates once a week or become independently wealthy. I still have two days to work on it though so I'll get back to you on what I come up with.
