Mystic, Monday Morning

Today I dropped Will off at the Mystic Seaport so he could start his week as a junior volunteer (helping with a summer camp). After dropping him off, I went to the Mystic Art Museum to drop Ben off where he is an assistant during one of their summer camps.

Izzy and I spent a few minutes hanging out by the water by the Museum, then went home to grab stuff that Will had forgotten, and back to the Mystic Seaport until lunch time. Izzy was a very tired girl from the beach yesterday – but she loves the Seaport. Lots to walk around and explore.

2017 Goals

It is that time of year again. Time to look back at the past year and look ahead to a new year. I didn’t write down specific goals for 2016 – but I think it helps me focus if I set some concrete goals. Here is my list of things I want to accomplish or do better this year:

  • Be more consistent in writing in this blog. I think it helps me to take time to focus on what I have finished.
  • Be better about posting pictures of Izzy in her blog.
  • Do another “March Challenge.” This time with Will and Ben.
  • Finish the coffee table.
  • Make at least two additional pieces of furniture in the workshop.
  • Install the pool with Susanna and the boys.
  • Finish the patio updates/outdoor kitchen.
  • Install a new door on the workshop and interior walls/insulation on one wall of the workshop.
  • Improve insulation on the workshop and the boy’s play loft.
  • Host a New Years party with Susanna.
  • Go bicycling with the family.
  • Spend a good week with Ben working on his boat this summer.

Of course, I’m sure my goals will change each month – that is the beauty of having ADHD – lots of ideas and ideas. But a list is a place to start.
