New Year's Goals
By Beth Beutler
1 "Happy New Year!" Tracy said to her brother, Jim, as she peeked through the half-open bedroom door early on New Year's Day. Jim was still under the covers, just waking up.
2 Jim turned toward the door, yawning. "What?" he said sleepily.
3 "I said, 'Happy New Year'," Tracy repeated. "It's a new year. Come on, get up and at 'em!"
4 "Why?" Jim said, rubbing his eyes. "Leave me alone." Jim turned back over and covered his head with the blanket.
5 "Suit yourself," Tracy said as she bounded down the stairs. Jim had never been a morning person. Tracy was, especially on the first day of a new year. It always felt so fresh to her. She liked fresh starts. She always had lots of goals.
6 Tracy pulled out a box of cereal from the pantry and poured it into a bowl. Then she added some 2% milk. She set the cereal on the table and went to the kitchen desk to get a pad and pen.
7 For the next thirty minutes, Tracy enjoyed her cereal while she began writing goals for the new year. She loved to plan!
8 Mom came downstairs after awhile and started a pot of coffee. Standing in her pink robe, she said to Tracy, "What are you doing?"
9 "I'm making plans for the new year," Tracy said.
