Well, as the New Year makes it's approach, my thoughts turn to what I accomplished this past year and what I hope to accomplish in the New Year. I had so many changes in the past year! I moved---twice! Lost my job and am now mama/farmer to goats chickens and teen-agers.
I don't have any regrets over the past year. I view every experience as a chance to learn something new.
Now, going into the New Year, I have a few hopes. I hesitate to call them *resolutions* as I find that doing that seems to doom all my good resolves to failure!
What I HOPE to accomplish in 2011:
1) Get in better shape physically. This is vague enough that I don't feel I have to name specifics; such as "Lose 45 pounds by April" or other such nonsense.
2) Work harder on my food storage.
3) Have a decent garden.
4) Get all goats producing milk and on a schedule I can deal with. (Milkers out there know what I am talking about!)
5) Find at least 2 sources of income to help with household expenses and savings.
That's about it! Not a long list, but there's a lot of work to be done there!
So...what are your hopes for the New Year?
