I thought so too. So anyway, I was thinking about this song (why?) and realized that driving a stick (at one time) was difficult, terrifying, and horrible. At the same time, it was something I really wanted. My best friend took me out one night (terrified me) and made me drive through parking lots, back roads, and neighborhoods until I got the hang of it. Have I mentioned how bomb.com my best friend is? Yeah, she basically rocks.
I realized that this year Chris and I have thought of A MILLION goals we have for this year. Terrifying, as well. We want to find him a FT job, finish up his M.Div., possibly move?, re-paint MOST of our house, purge-purge-PURGE!, organize the crap we already have/still want and set a goal for each month of our year.
Our January goal will admittedly be behind. We want to finish organizing/cleaning our office (yes, it's one of the rooms we hope to paint but not right this minute) and set up a nice, clean, open workspace for BOTH of us. Chris has school work. I have
Anyway, as terrified as I am about these upcoming goals, I remember how difficult it was to learn to drive a stick shift (or wear a pointy-toed heel after years of the chunky, rubber-soled, round- and square-toed shoes of the mid-90s) and realize that I would, actually, NEVER want to drive an automatic (if I have the choice) and that my legs look better in pointy-toed heels & boots (and even flats)!
Happy Resolute-ing and goal-meeting in 2011!
