I'm on call this week until Christmas night and then I'm off until after the first of the year. Most people prefer to be off on Christmas and I enjoy time away from work at Christmas too, but it seems like most of my career, I've had to work that week. I can live with that.
I do always try to take the last week of the year off. There's something about New Years that I absolutely love. I like taking time to reflect on the past year and to make plans for the new year. 
I'm a big on setting goals.  There have been times when I haven't followed through and as a result, I fell short of the targets I set. 
But I've done quite well this year. One thing that has been on my Goals list for several years is to lose twenty pounds. I'd work hard, exercise, and push away from the table early in the year only to backslide in the fall and botch the goal. 
This year, I really didn't write it down on paper, but it was still an internal goal. The difference this year is that I stayed the course and as a result, I weigh twenty pounds less. Another goal is to reduce debt by 30%. I have already met this goal as well. We're on target to be debt free this time next year, though we really must not lose focus. I can't wait to hold a mortgage burning party.
I had some other goals that were poorly written and as a result, I didn't make as much progress on them as I would have liked, but I am moving forward.
Anyhow, I'm excited about getting started on our plans for 2010. 
Travel safe these next few weeks.
