New Year, New Chance

Starting this the first time around did not work out very well for me, so we’re going to try this again, with a little more structure. I’m going to try posting 3 times a week (at least) and each of the three will have a purpose:

A Book of the Week post: I am giving myself a goal of reading 52 books in 52 weeks based on this challenge. Not sure how realistic that is. So maybe I’ll at least post about what I’m reading for 52 weeks, with a personal goal of 12 books being the minimum goal. Added goal of at least 50% of those books being classics, alternating between quality reads and fun reads. I hope that if I read more, it will help to inspire Boo, who is not a reader by nature. I am in the middle of reading HP and the Goblet of Fire aloud to her at the moment, as we have read through the first three books in the past year (with a detour into The Lion, the Witch and Wardrobe). But this doesn’t count towards the challenge.

A Geeky post: We’re really into games at the moment, now that Boo is 8 and can really get into games that have a little meat. We’ve been inspired by Will Wheaton’s Tabletop and have been playing Ticket to Ride, Munchkin, Smallword, Apples to Apples, and got a couple more for Christmas. Hubby has also introduced The Secret World MMO to Boo over Winter Break, and she’s becoming a little expert (almost done with Kingsmouth!) Outside the gaming worked we have been participating in a reenactment group for the past year and my daughter is learning archery and wants to get into the arts projects end of things. So I’ll post about what geeky/artsy-type thing Boo or I did during the week (or didn’t get to).

The third post? I’m not honestly sure what that will yet. At least it will be one of those Wordless Wednesday picture posts. I’m also looking to try to do the 52 Weeks to an Organized Home (you can stop laughing now… breathe). Maybe I’ll write about that to keep me honest. The point is to write a post, and I’ll leave it a little flexible as to not block myself into an impossible box.

So we’ll see how this goes and hopefully 2013 will be a productive year on a personal level.
