A Rough Start to the New Year Makes Goal Setting a Bit Late

We need to organize


When I left my office On December 20 for the holidays, I planned on taking no more than a couple of weeks off, returning on January 2, but the best laid plans.

It’s been a rough winter at Our Little House so far. We’ve had weather, lots of weather, with snow and ice and brutal cold.

Dale and I also picked up a bug while celebrating my 50th birthday with friends in Kansas City. I remember thinking at the height of my illness that I hadn’t felt so bad maybe since having the “Swine Flu” around 1978, when I was 14. I read a day later that it the flu strain that is hitting this year.

I’m not sure that’s what we had, we always get a flu shot, but I know I don’t want to have it again.

So, now we’re back to work after Dale missed one day due to ice last week. We’re feeling better and we’re even in the middle of a January thaw.

Time to get down to the business of making some goals for the year. I don’t make resolutions, but I do try to have some goals, both personally and business wise.

It was 7 years ago now that we made a goal to move to Our Little House full time. We made that goal and so many more since.

This year, I have a dual goal for our personal lives and my business.

I want to get organized and stay that way.

What’s a goal you have made for 2014. Would you like to move to a small home this year? Be more sustainable (hint: a very easy way to do this is to use cloth bags at the grocery store)? Eat better?
