I enjoy setting goals and turning them into accomplishments

These are mine:

Get a degree in Counseling
Operate a chain of residential senior care homes
Open a rehabilitation center for teens
Write a few novels
Write an autobiography
Act in a play
Write & perform on guitar with a band
Make Art, batik, sculpture, mosaics
Scan all my photographs onto a storage system.
Try to save my VHS in same manner
Hike the PCT
Get married to the 2nd love of my life

What are your goals ?

I assume these are long-term goals and not short ones, like remember to take the coffee cup out of my bedroom and to the kitchen. (It doesn't belong in my bedroom so I keep forgetting about it when I walk out of the room.)

I had some life goals that I wrote down about 30 years ago and I did them all. They were get a master's degree, get a good job, buy a new car, retire to a cabin in Maine. The master's turned into a specialist degree, I got a great job that lasted 27 years, the new car wasn't worth the price, and I'm now living in my parent's old cabin here in Maine...but with my p.i.t.a. sister. I'd rather live in 1966 VW Beetle than with my sister. But I guess I can't fit comfortably in one, so I'm stuck.

New goals? Continue to get healthy, lose an inspecified amount of weight, get this dang book I wrote published, and hire an excellent attorney when I ....no. I just had a month long vacation from her while she was dogsitting at my brother's house. I'm just feeling the affects of stomping feet, cleaning up coffee spilled on the floor, and barging into my room without knocking. I had to go to Target for some retail therapy today.

Time,

You are a gifted writer. Lately i put things on hold at the local thrift then leave. Satisfying. For New Years i sorta went berserk buying an entire outfit for the big night.

I went alone to a dance. Drank a whole bottle of champagne and danced like there was no tomorrow. Toward 11pm my dream man found a short opportunity and asked me to dance.

Yes, my goals are long term.

Three years ago, still searching for the man of my dreams, I made a goal to marry the Last Love of My Life in 2022. 15 years since my divorce to a good man, 25 year marriage.

I find writing my goals down helps to make my goals achievements

I am interested in your book. What is it about?

husband hunting and my book

I sincerely hope you find your husband-to-be and enjoy the romance of it all. I'm glad you decided that your first husband was a "good man". Mine was, too, before he passed away when a drunk teenager plowed into him. It's been 20 years, and I have no desire to ever get married again. But I hope you do. I hope God sends you somone who makes you smile and laugh.

My book is a genealogy book. It is completely boring to anyone who doesn't have the last name of Richardson and who doesn't live in Hancock County, Maine. Well, technically, I suppose those who descend from a woman named Richardson who married someone with a different last name but who still came from Hancock County might find it interesting.

I believe you have to be a genealogist to get it. My cousin's eyes glaze over whenever I start talking about dead ancestors. But there are a lot of people who salivate over miniscule details such as census reports indicating a child born in, say, 1850, not showing up on the 1880 report. (Did she marry? Is she buried in some weed strewn graveyard?) All so fascinating to a certain group of nutcases.

Best of luck to you!
