Settin' Me Some Goals

I need me some goals. I 've gotten slack since becoming a mom. Eddie is a GREAT excuse for not cleaning the bathroo, emptying the catbox, reading, etc...

Now, don't get me wrong, there are certainly days when Eddie just needs me and I am absolutely cannot get anything done, but those days are far fewer than I let on. ;)

My goals will be general, not very specific. Getting specific can also be an excuse for me to procrastinate. Are you seeing the theme here? I am a HORRIBLE procrastinator. When I was in college I used to clean my dorm room in an effort to put off studying.

So... here are my very general goals:

Read more. I usta could read a whole novel in one day, now I am lucky if I read a novel a year.

Be more social. I am turning into a hermit crab. I like people, but I am kinda shy and I stink at initiating get-togethers and the like. And the fact that I HATE talking on the phone doesn't help me plan any outings.Because I hav virtually no interaction with real, live people aside from Ed and Eddie, I am turning into a crotchety old crab.

Make more of an effort to tend to the house and cook better meals.

Now, let's see if I actually do any of these things.

I am a procrastinator also and tend to let things go.

It's good to motivate yourself to do better, but Eddie will only be this old once and some things just have to take a backseat. At least that is what I tell myself when I see the mess around me.
