Last year, I had only three goals and fulfilled only one (mostly due to being ill from August to December), so I am hoping to do better this year. Perhaps having a Domestic Queen from history--such as Queen Margaret of Scotland--to inspire me will help.
So far this year, I have made what I hope to be a sustainable weekly/daily schedule. My monthly and yearly schedules from past years are still serviceable, but I need to take an extra hour or so of rest each day: hence, the new weekly/daily schedule that has me resting nine hours a day (including my sleep time).
Goals for 2013
Radiant Health: Rest nine hours each day (more challenging than it sounds); work up to exercising for forty-five minutes a day, six days per week.
The Sweet Promise: Purchase mini-van; publish the four books I have pending; commence new classes each month (except May).
Domestic Queen: Cull one-third of my library; give away/sell possessions exceeding ten boxes per room to make anticipated move easier.
Character Emphases: Self-Control and Diligence
Femininity: Have some fun most days! I am becoming a little too Agnes-y, if you know what I mean.
Reading: Re-read Bible,Confessions of St. Augustine, Pride and Prejudice, Fascinating Womanhood, and The Art of Homemaking. Read anew Following Jesus, Christian Courtship, Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero, Killing Kennedy, How Children Succeed. I'll probably pick up a few novels to round out the bunch.
I realize that some of the goals are amorphous, and perhaps that is okay at this early stage of planning.
