E goes back to school tomorrow and I am really looking forward to getting back to our routine. Christmas is still spewed all over the house and I’m itching to get things put away and to clean out the fridge and start cooking normal dinners again. We’ve been living off of Christmas stocking booty and the novelty of eating cheese, summer sausage, and crackers for dinner is wearing thin and I’m craving some vegetables.
I’m setting a few goals for the coming year, nothing earth-shattering but I would like to
- Blog more
- Cook more
- Read more books
- Quilt more
- Exercise more
- Complete the Spanish unit on DuoLingo
#5 is the only specific goal. I would really like to be proficient at a second language and it seems like a doable way of achieving that. Duolingo is a free language-learning app I downloaded on my phone. I would like to improve my Korean but they didn’t offer it so I went with Spanish since I took a few years of it in high school. It’s pretty fun and I think if I can just remember to use it for 10 minutes on most days I should be able to complete the unit in a year and have a pretty good grasp on things.
Are you setting any goals for the coming year? I’m trying to decide if it’s worth fighting the crowds at the gym this week or if I should give it a little while for things to settle down 😉
