Compulsive Planning Disorder

Carnival of Blogging Chicks

At one time I was a person who planned their life to the nth degree. I had a Franklin planner full of tasks and to-do lists for the next day and week. I set 6-month, 3 year and 10 year goals to ensure I was fulfilling all the emotional, spiritual, family and job related facets of my life.

Then I stopped planning. After I gave birth and while raising my son as a single parent, I had no aspirations for myself other than to raise him to be a good man. Well, he is almost 17 and will be leaving within the year to begin his life. In celebration of being able to put a big checkmark by the task . . .checkmark

Be a Good Mom

. . and in anticipation of my life to come, I will set some resolutions for the next year.

In 2007, I resolve to:
  • become debt free
  • learn Spanish
  • visit my friends in Costa Rica
Okay. there are my resolutions, my to-do list, if you will. Which, I might mention, will become a big ball and chain over the next year. A to-do list means I will have to do all these things because I have CPD (compulsive planning disorder).

OMG! This list will reside here from now until eternity . . . taunting me . . . mocking me . . . crying out for that big blue checkmark! *sob*

* sniff * I hope you are all happy now . . .

Oh no - no pressure! I won't tell you what my Resolution was in 2006 because I failed so miserably at it. (but, life gets in the way sometimes.)

New Years Resolutions? Good grief! I'm still reeling that it IS 2006, much less thinking about 2007!:)
