I decided not to make any New Year’s Resolutions this year for many reasons. Chief among them, I never keep them. So here is what I propose to do instead. I will document the things I would like to accomplish by the end of the year. That way I can update my progress through out the year.
And now, in no particular order, here they are. My goals and dreams for 2009…
1- Learn a new skill. I’m thinking guitar.
2- Go back to school.
3- Develop better eating habits.
4- Lose weight.
5- Watch less crappy tv. Or try really,really hard to.
6- Plant a garden.
7- Get caught up on all my laundry.
8- Spend a day volunteering somewhere with the boys.
9- Learn how to make grilled cheese already. what? I’m perfectly serious.
10- Catch up with all my bloggy friends.
11- Take a vacation.
12- Develop a budget and truly stick with it.
13- Make more time for my friends.
14- Take time for me.
15- Do something I normally would never do.
16- Have a “Date Night” with my husband.
17- Do something new with the boys once a month.
Well, there you have it. My list of things I would like to do/change/learn this year. Some may be trivial. Some will present quite a challenge. But I am determined to conquer 2009. One way or another.
