I’ve been sitting here working on a post about new year’s resolutions and goals. Type. Delete. Retype. Delete. This could go on forever.

Let me say that I’ve had fun reading about everyone’s goals, resolutions, words and themes to focus on for the year. Sometimes, even more fun are the posts making fun of goals, resolutions and themes.

So instead of tell you the long story of how I got here… I’m just going to say that my dear sweet husband set my goal for the year without knowing he did it. I want to be happy where I am. Sometimes that’s hard when you’re waiting for a letter from immigration. When you are in the middle of difficult parenting choices. When you’re worried about the decisions you make right now effecting many people for a very long time.

Ray is always saying to the girls, “Be good. Do good.” I think if I’m focused on that, it’s a pretty good goal for twenty eleven. If I’m good and busy doing good, there’s bound to be less time for the bad. That is what I’ll be focused on this year.
