My Goals for the New Year
I can’t call these Resolutions. This is more of a To Do List. Some of these things have got to done.
1. Secure a permanent job
This is most important. By hook or by crook, I need to be employed. And any employer who tries and gives me the “Work for peanuts for a year, and then we might hire you…” can just take a hike.
Fool me once shame on you, etc.
2. Adopt my daughter
My daughter is most certainly my child. In Massachusetts, where Jen and I are married, that is not in doubt. But if we should travel to Disneyworld or such, you can run into problems. I need to adopt her so she is recognized everywhere as my kid. I am actually going to attempt to do this pro se. I will let you know how it goes.
3. Lose 20lbs
This goal is becoming a perennial favorite.
4. Get out of debt
This is somewhat dependent on figuring out Goal #1.
5. Set up a 529 for V.
I have on set up for P. I just need to put in the paperwork for V. I don’t want my kids to have to worry about student loan debt.
6. Buy a single family house
This is more of a dream than a goal. We have lived in our little condo for five years now. Being us, we bought at the height of the market. With two kids, it is far too small for us and all of the plastic toys we have accumulated. With any luck, by the end of the year, we will be able to move into a little house all or own.
How about you? What are your goals for the New Year?
