1) Refresh my resume
I have a three year general Arts degree with a major in English Literature. That really translates to, "I'm not qualified to do anything." Ha! However, I seem to have found my place in being an administrative assistant with a side of bookkeeping. That said, my current workplace is making some changes and that means my job is changing too. There is a possibility that I won't be working as many hours as I am now. While we don't depend on my income, the extra money is nice and we've sort of gotten used to it. Ha!
So with all that said, I want to update my resume so that if I need to start looking for more work/different work, I am ready. It shouldn't be too hard and is the first step in a much longer process. sigh.
2) Sort out our Tupperware containers.
All the clear (coloured) containers have issues with their lids.
And this isn't even all of them. Yikes.
3) Read some books I actually own (or have borrowed from people).
In the picture on the right is the pile I want to reduce.
4) Clean out the basket on my plastic organizer.
5) Deal with all the hand-me-downs in the basement.
6) Have some family games nights.
We have a lot of games.
7) Get on top of Rachel's home reading and Sam's daily spelling.
Rachel is proficient enough at home reading that she could go through a book a night in both French and English. In the fall, we were going through a book every two weeks. I'd like to make home reading a priority every other night at least.
As for Sam's spelling, he gets a list of five words every night and then on Friday he has to spell ten of them correctly. This has been going on since about November. When I mentioned this goal, Dave's response was, "Sam has daily spelling words?!?!?!" Yeah, that's why this is a goal :)
8) Blog three times a week, including two (or three?) book reviews.
I already know I want to blog about Christmas and our New York trip last week. Dave's birthday is in a few weeks and the month ends with a big readathon. I should have lots to blog about this month.
9) Work on drinking more water.
And drinking less other stuff -- coffee hot chocolate, Coke, etc.
10) Figure out the kids' Valentine's Day cards.
The kids' Valentine's cards from last year.
So those are my January goals. Am I overly ambitious? Do you have any monthly goals for January?
