I enjoy the idea of setting New Years resolutions each year, even if I fail at keeping them. I figure it is the thought at least that counts. It is nice to look them over every once and a while over the course of the year and at least see if I am managing to accomplish any of them. Sometimes I have a hard time being realistic about the amount of goals I can get done each year. I try to divide my goals up into categories which helps me keep tack of them better and see which ones might need alittle more work at getting done.
Anyway, this is my list of goals for 2011:
1. Visit more with my girlfriends. Shoot for once a month.
2. Invite friends over for dinner or out to dinner. Shoot for every other month.
3. Be more mindful of the amount of time kids are using the computer.
