New Years Resolutions

Copied from Facebook

The other day, Lori asked what our new years resolutions were and I said that I didn't have any.  It's true enough, I don't have any specific resolutions for the new year, however I do have some life goals that I am working towards and I thought it was time to share them. I may have to break this up into sections since it's lengthy.

1.  Reading/Writing/Arithmetic. The three R's(?)

Reading - I haven't been able to sit down and read a book for fun in years.  I used to have my nose in a book 24/7 but now my reading is limited to technical manuals and Wikipedia pages.  This needs to change.  I am going to try to read two books a month going forward, one "thinking" book and one "brain candy" book.  I'm not sure where I will find the time or where to start but this changes this month.

Writing - Long ago, when I had my nose in a book 24/7 I wanted to be a writer.  That's obviously not going to happen.  However, I am going to commit to writing more than the occasional Facebook status update.  I think I am going to finally get around to starting a blog.  Maybe.  Maybe not.

Arithmetic - I am going to get my spending in check and under control.  This means I am going to cut out waste.  This is a work in progress but I think I can do it.  Starbucks - old friend - you and your happy baristas are the next to go.  I brought home two bottles of creamer from the store and I am going to be making coffee at home.

To be continued....
