Goals 2012

The beginning of the year always gives me great comfort. I have an entire year to look forward to, and I am not behind on anything. *yet*

So, for this year I have a couple of things I'm planning to work on.

1. Read 12 challenging books. I know, a rather paltry number, at least in comparison to the 52 books challenge that many people take on, but it is an achievable number for me. I really would like to get through Liping Ma's Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics in January. It is a far cry from my favorite reading style, but I have heard so much about this book that I feel compelled to make it through. I'll let you know how it goes.

2. Keep up with my scrapbooking. I "slurp" my blog each year to have it printed into a physical book, but I have failed miserably this past year, so I'm going to work hard to keep up with it in 2012. The first part of this involves catching up with missed events for 2011. That means that all of you will be reading wonky things in Google Reader as I back-date events. I did catch up with my little boy's hot rod birthday party (from 10 months ago) last night, but I have several more parties and vacations to go.

3. Create more often. I love sewing and weaving, although it has taken a back seat recently. I have been busy teaching art history classes, chasing a 2 year old, and educating 2 elementary students, but that doesn't mean that I shouldn't do what I love. My first priority is to finally complete a Christmas stocking for my 2 year old (I started it before she was born ... sigh). If and when I ever get it finished I hope to reward myself by dusting off my beautiful loom and signing up for a few more lessons at Harrisville Designs.

Three goals, that's enough for this lady.

Great goals for the new year! I am actually taking on the 52 book challenge. I found your blog via the read52booksin52weeks blog!

Glad you are joining in and tackling 12 challenging books. Look forward to hearing all about it. Ma's book sounds like one I should read.
