Are YOU Ready?

It's hard to believe that 2010 is already drawing to  a close.  On this day last year, after having several problems during her pregnancy, the doctors decided to put Amanda into the hospital and induce labor.   Little Ellen was born shortly before midnight and she is one of many blessings we are thankful for this past year.   God has been good! 

Now, it's time for me to look ahead to 2011.  I had planned to use our time off for the Christmas season to get a reading list prepared for Ferrell and actually look through what had been done and what needs to be completed this next semester.  Guess What?  I didn't get any of that done.  Guess What?  I still haven't!  Guess What?  School starts Monday!   I know that I won't get much done today, because we'll be leaving with the band at 4:00 this afternoon headed to New Albany for a singing there.  I may be able to work on it a little bit tomorrow, but since we'll be leaving with the band on Sunday morning headed to a church in Iuka for their morning service I will be spending a big part of tomorrow preparing food to carry with us to meet the needs of family members with food sensitivities. 

While I am looking forward to the New Year, I am really not ready.  How on earth I could let it slip up on me is beyond comprehension, but it did.  Oh well, I guess we will start out with the basics next week and hopefully I will have time Monday to do some review and preparation.  We'll see.

As for the rest of my plans for the New Year?  Well, I really haven't made any.  I don't do New Year's Resolutions and while I do have some ideas for things that I would like to accomplish this next year, I haven't taken time to really sit down and think them through.  I think that I will take some time this upcoming week, (when everyone else is back to their normal routine) and work on my goals for the upcoming year.   It will be easier when everyone's work schedule is back on track and when we have a routine.  I am able to focus much more clearly when we have a daily routine in place.  Even when it gets disrupted (which it does regularly), it is still much easier when I know what SHOULD be going on.  Are YOU ready for the New Year?
