I hope everyone had a safe evening last night! We stayed home and hubby and I played Yahtzee while waiting for the New Year to arrive.

The grandkids did manage to stay awake until midnight and that was fun, too!

Has anyone set any goals for 2010? I'm not one for resolutions, but I do try to have some specific goals to reach.

This year, I've joined three reading challenges for the first time: Awesome Author Challenge 2010, A to Z Challenge and What's in a Name. They should be lots of fun and I'll use them to clear some books off my TBR shelves.

My personal goal is to organize my work space. That means clearing out a lot of old papers from my filing cabinets and putting loose papers away where they belong. I also plan to go through my desk drawers and make them more useful. I'm also planning to come up with some way to keep the notes organized for projects I'm working on. Right now, they tend to get mixed together, so I'm continually sorting stacks of notepads and paper notes.

I also want to jump farther ahead on this house remodeling we've been working on for the past few years. Later this month, the new carpeting and linoleum will be installed, so that should provide some inspiration for the next step!

I'm really looking forward to this year.

Happy New Year! We had a quiet evening too. My husband and I played cribbage while we watched tv.

Happy New Year to you!

Good luck with your reading challenges, and with the home renovations (how exciting! I agree, seeing the progress will further motivate you)
