It's not Friday, but. . .

. . . I'm doing a Friday Five anyway. (No time last Friday--scrambling to get things done and then worked from 5 to close. Too frazzled to think.)

When 2008 rolled around, I made a list of goals for the year, because I don't "do" resolutions. Now I'm preparing my goals for 2009, and in reviewing the nine I made for 2008, I see a few that I accomplished: Drop at least five pounds (that was down to the wire, and only as the result of working like a dog at the bookstore before Christmas), save for an iPod, get back to writing, and get a shorter (than my novel) writing piece published (hey, a guest post on my mentor's widely read blog counts, right?). But I also see five goals for 2009 that I'm carrying over from 2008:

1. Go to at least one museum. (Just did not happen in 2008. Shameful.)

2. See a Shakespeare play. (First time was in 2007, and I very much want to see another one.)

3. Purchase iPod. (Saving took me all year, sadly.)

4. Complete final review/rewrite of first novel. (I had bursts of writing, but I'm still not done. And I keep getting diverted by ideas for the second one that are coming more easily.)

5. De-clutter and keep home clean. (Working full time and going to school full time? What was I thinking? I'm just digging out from school now.)

Definitely need to add "Floss more" to the 2009 list. Oh, yeah--"Get a job." That one, too, for sure.

Do you have any goals for 2009? Do share! Or just feel free to comment on mine.

I'm not much on New Year's resolutions, but I can relate to the clutter goal. That seems to be an on-going one for me.

Seriously, I think the clutter hides for a few days and then shows up all at once one morning. Ugh.
