I really do not make resolutions--far too frustrating for me when I can't keep them up. However that does not mean I don't set a couple of goals at the start of each New Year-subject to change and tweaking!! One of my goals for 2016 was to get my own taxes done as soon as possible in 2017. To this end I tried to keep my Quicken up all year--Guess what? Except for getting the mileage on my car and any last minute charges that are added to my accounts--I'm DONE. I finished yesterday!!!!! All I have to do now is wait for 1099's etc., get my copy of Turbo and I'm good to go. Now I can concentrate on getting my bookkeeping clients payroll quarterlies done--which means heading to Staples to pick up the forms. In 2017 I am GOING to remember to go to Deluxe and order them early, along with other supplies I might need. (I am an affiliate so if you purchase after clicking in I will get a small commission.) Then onward to getting their year end work ready for their accountants.

The second goal I met was I signed up once again for the Goodreads reading challenge. After 2016 when I missed by about ten I decided this year I would lower my expectations from 150 to 100--I signed up! Of course now I really have to start reading and writing up reviews again!

I have started my third goal for 2017 already (this morning actually). I took down some of the affiliate links on the left sidebar of my blog. They were not getting any attention and were just taking up space. More will probably be coming down and relatively soon. I will be keeping Lilla Rose (of course) and Puritan's Pride and Deluxe and American Tea Room. Which others would you like me to keep up there?
I do have some other ideas peculating in my brain at the moment--but first things first--get the year end stuff out of the way--then I can start on them. One of my major goals this year is to NOT LET MYSELF GET FRUSTRATED or overwhelmed. Oh yeah--least I forget I will be trying to make a little more money then I did this year--with the cost of my prescriptions--I have no real choice.
