Well, I accomplished my school goal. Got all my class work done and I think I was pretty successful. We'll see when grades come out.

I would like to get all I have planned for this weekend accomplished!

I want to find balance in my life, and then figure out how to maintain it.

Sheila, I grew up by the Atlantic. The water's much warmer, but not as clear. Otherwise it's just an ocean. ;) The beaches are very different, though. I hope you make it!

To hike down from the gondola at Squaw Valley again. If any of you have the opportunity the hike down is quite a workout with some great scenery. A lake you can only get to by foot included in the hike. Now the real goal would be to hike up the trail also.

DONE! Already! Just today! 5.5 actually, due to an inadvertent Karate Kid workout, after 1.5 hours of tennis drill this morning.

Some of you may remember that I got my daughter a 1981 Volvo last Saturday. We 'wax-on, wax-off'd for nearly 2 hours - stayed in my target heart range according to my monitor, so I think it counts!

Then, a friend was sanding wood for yard chairs he is building for his wife, and I went and helped for two more hours.

If only I would have helped her paint! Maybe tomorrow.

Next on my list of goals to acheive:

Buy a designer dress.

I'm a huge bargain shopper, so this one will be tough for me. Also, this goes hand in hand with my weight loss goal since my healthy, hot bod will be deserving of a few hundred dollars worth of tailored fabric!!

This is a cool thread. :)

A major life goal is to become more self-sufficient. Not just in a "I want to support myeslf financially" way, but in terms of being able to produce the things I need (food, clothing, etc.).

I want to live within my means and have plenty of savings.

I also want to go to S. America. I study S. American monkeys in captivity, so this is more than a travel goal for me.

PerkySue: That is awesome!! I've heard you have to get in about a year in advance. What kind of training are you doing to prep for the hike? My biggest concern is the altitude. I go hiking up at Stephens Trail in Auburn and just that change in elevation can get me winded pretty easy. I am definitely interested. I'll have to look at my vacation budget, but would love to hear more about your training, too.

Good deal Sheila! I am traveling this week, home Sat night - maybe next weekend? We will find a time.

Hey, maybe we should go back and edit our goals if we meet them...then we could see how each other is doing! My goal for today is to meet one I posted earlier, so I can go mark it off!

Oh, Suzy! I would LOVE to get together with you and meet your horses. We should figure something out. It sounds like so much fun!

As far as my someday goal: I want to do karoake in front of a live band (like at Marilyn's). I have a terrible voice but I think it would be fun!

By the way, I am writing down all of the goals I am posting and I'm going to make a goal board out of them. That way they are always on my mind.

You really should, Brook. I don't have one now as just bought house last year and am trying to reorganize finances, but otherwise have always had one, even in 700 sf apartment. Even for once a month - $50-75 - so very worth it. Plus it makes you pick up the house before they come. I plan to do it again maybe in 6 months or so, just once a month. You would be very happy.

OK - one of mine. To figure out a way to make the back of my house look better - in particular, hide or dress up the air conditioner (how does one do THAT???), and get rid of the scrap wood that resulted from a recent project. And redo the lights on my trees. That one is easy. Maybe I will do it today.

You've come to the right place Sheila! Look - this is good - post your goals and maybe someone will give them to you! For example they could log and say hey, want to go horseback riding with me? I have a horse and a pony near Auburn. My horse is getting old but there are others out there that I can use. Also it is really fun to hike with them - my guy can still go do that. What do you say? One of the upcoming weekends perhaps? RVAN is also into horses, maybe we should all go!
