Motivation Monday - Update on End of Year Goals

Seems like every time I try to get back to my research, something happens. I've been having a few health issues going on, so I've not been able to get back to my research like I had hoped. That being said, I did manage to get a few things accomplished on My End of Year Goals.

So here are the things I managed to get accomplished for health issues side-tracked me.

  1. Finish Organization of the Office / Craft Room
  • I did get the shelving installed in the closet of my office / craft room. However, I think I may eventually have to add more shelving elsewhere in the room.
  • Did not get the bookcase organized; therefore, I'm revising my goal date for getting this accomplished to November 29, 2013.
  • Haven't even begun on spiffing up the file cabinet.
2. Haven't even begun on the organization of my file folders.

3. So far, I've not managed to get at least one blog post per week written. Hopefully, I can make up for that this coming week.

4. I realized after writing my post that I had ordered a different book, Slave Genealogy: A Research Guide with Case Studies by David H. Streets. I've almost finished the book but have gotten side tracked reading some other books, historical / genealogy related and some not related to family research.

5. I've not began to write a research plan to try to determine / confirm the last slave owner of my 2nd great grandparents, Jasper and Jane Pierce.

Given my health issues of late, I actually feel like I've made a small dent into my list. I'm still not back to 100%  and have more testing coming up but still feeling confident that I can accomplish my end of year genealogical goals.
