I've never gone for the "New Year's Resolution" sort of thing, but a few goals are always in order. Regardless what day of the year it is. So, for the coming year, some stuff I'd like to accomplish:
-Getting back to school would be awesome. The Goober starts kindergarten in the fall, so it's not totally out of the realm of reality, at least to get back part time. So. Possible.
That's the ticket, goals I might achieve. I'm the queen of unreachable goals, but this time around I'd like to shoot for reality.
-Enjoy the knitting more, stress myself out less. Which means, ha, setting fewer goals. A goal of setting fewer goals. I crack myself up.
-Survive the house-buying and last move, with, well, if not grace, than at least without going totally bonkers. Or trashing my back again.
-Either get the new pain specialist straightened out (big issue: he needs to listen to me rather than diagnose me with things I've never had symptoms of). If I can't get him straightened out, then fire him and find someone who DOES listen. This one should be relatively easy, just stressful. Y'all may have noticed medical types tend to make me crazy. Okay. Crazier.
Over the last week, I've had a bad case of start-itis, with quite a few projects about half done, laying around. (Like that never happens.) Over on Twitter, Bells and Terby have been egging me on for the last couple days, after I mentioned having the urge to knit a doily. Terby dared me to do it on triple zeros. I've only got quad zeros with me. So. Well. I'm gonna go look at my Niebling patterns.
For now, we're watching cartoons in our warm (if small) apartment, well-fed and relatively healthy and in good spirit. There are husbeast and Goober cuddles happening, the cat is snoring in her blankie, and I got half the laundry done today.
It could be a hell of a lot worse.
