A Fresh Start

And so it begins.

A new year. I had looked forward to December, hoping to use the time for taking a breath, clearing the way for the new year. One more surprise bruiser of a deadline nixed that idea. Whew. Glad that one is over and done with.

I don't know about you, but the pressure of a deadline forces me to get things done but I certainly don't enjoy it. I get this hopeless feeling of "I can never get it all done" and I want to just curl up under the covers and hide. I used to get an adrenaline rush and be very productive close to a deadline. I wonder if it's age or if it's just much, too much of a good thing. Lack of sleep probably has a lot to do with it.

I'm hoping this year to steer clear of deadlines. My intention is to ramp my children back up the priority ladder. So my goals for this year? I'd say "get more sleep" but know it isn't going to happen. So realistically - here it goes:

GOALS for 2009
Have more fun.
