Still reveling

in the sense of possibility the new year conveys. Abbott had a really hard time getting out of bed yesterday (and I had more than one cup of coffee); otherwise the return to school went well. At the end of the day both boys looked tired and happy, and very glad to see me. I loved exchanging New Years wishes with parents and teachers. During the school day I was fairly productive in catching up on household chores. My goals for the new year include being more efficient and deliberate with my time and spending less time online; today I accomplished what I wanted to, for the most part.

What are your hopes for the blank slate that is 2010?

I'd say you all started well on your first day back to "business".
I have many hopes for 2010, and this post I just read on meaningfulness really spoke to me:

My plan is to get more discipline with my time, continue to simplify and enjoy the beauty around me. Also to prepare for the coming sugery (in a couple of months) both physically and mentally. Enjoy your golden day! xo

Self Mastery is our goal for 2010. So now I get to do so many things, get up early, exercise. Learn to say no if its not really in my or my family's bes interest. Which does includs less computer time as well.

I too hope to be more organized with my day and get more work done. I think I need to get up earlier to do that. Bummer.

I just wanted to say hi and happy New Year.I've been following your blog for a while and just love you photos- they are gorgeous.
My resolution or goals?
Like you to be more productive and stay offline (as much as I can). Oh and to make more art.

Isn't it great to be able to say you accomplished what you meant to in a day? I noticed you said that in a previous post, too--I'm jealous! Kudos to you, though, for meeting your goals already!

I hope to be more present. No worrying about the past or present, but to remain in the here and now.

Besides the usual goal of getting myself to the gym, my goals for 2010 are similary to yours in that I want to work on self-discipline and time management. So maybe at the end of the day I can say that I accomplished what I wanted as well!

i love the word "hopes" for the new year. i love wishes, goals, aspirations as well, rather than resolutions, which sounds so firm and formal. i posted mine on my blog. mostly, to apply joyous words to the important aspects of my life and not work to hard at the wrong things.
yesterday was smooth at our house (although a bit lonely!). this morning was a bit rougher!

My desires for 2010:

1. Get right with yoga backbends. After 13 years, I still struggle with them.

2. Learn to knit.

3. Decrease car trips and shopping in general.

4. Aquire a doggie.

Nice photo! I wish I could say the same about being online, but it's a necessary and unavoidable part of my life right now. Happy New Year and I wish you the best there is yet!

I am having a really really hard time getting back into my work routines

You know, I made a lot of changes in 2009...so many, in fact, that I didn't even bother to make any resolutions or set any goals for myself for 2010. (The list on my blog is really just an extention of goals I already had.) It occurs to me as I write this that I'm pretty happy with myself right now...and that's a good place to be in.

I know, a bit full of myself today! The workout this AM was particularly good...

I'm glad your transition back has been good!

Hey Lecia!
My goals for 2010 are to buy no new yarn or fabric - use only what I have in the stash. Challenging, but I think I'm up for it. That and lost 10 lbs...so unoriginal, sigh...
