Now that I have made the last decision I needed to make for 2010 (which New Year’s Eve party I would be attending) I now face my first 2011 decision: what resolutions should I take with me into the new year as noble goals toward self-improvement? I’ve been reviewing my choices (from among the 23 or so I put down in the blog over the first part of December) and here’s what I’ve come to:
- Designate a week where I will reply in the affirmative to every (reasonable) request to go out, hang out and otherwise get out (of my comfort zone).
- Take Max on a camping trip at least twice, for a period of two or more days each, possibly with other friends involved on the trip too.
- Track my spending for at least month to create a simple budget.
- Plan no more than six meals “out” each week for a month, with a “these meals planned” calendar on my fridge at home.
There are a few others that are right over my horizon if I complete these satisfactorily. Four goals that are relatively timebound should be a good start – we’ll see how it goes!
Finally, thank you, dear reader, for sticking with me during this very interesting and enjoyable year-of-blogs! I’ll be back in the New Year with some different types of content and I’m sure a few regular-style blogs too.
Happy New Year, everyone!
