Are We Doing This Again?December 29, 2009 at 6:45 PM | Posted in Riding In Cars With Pizza | Leave a comment
I’ve made a ton of New Year’s Resolutions in the last few years. I don’t keep many. Or most, even. Or really any of them, except by accident.
But a few, maybe. I throw a bunch of them against the wall and see what sticks. A few that I have made in the past were things that I needed to do anyway–was that cheating? Like getting the house refinanced. Sometimes I really cheat by putting things on there that I’ve already done. In that vein, we travel down this road again–if for no other reason than this: I like to make lists.
Uhmmm…Categories? We’ll see.
#Get another part time job (Big fat check mark next to this one!)
#Get caught up on bills
#pay back any debt
#save some money for a trip or emergency
#save some money for Christmas (Christmas savings account)
$Fix everything that’s broken–there’s a list.
$Landscaping in the spring.
$Finish organizing tools and what-have-you.
$Sort out stuff to sell and then sell it, or give it away, or donate it, or pitch it.
$Fix the damn car, the truck, the other car, and the van.
^Get back to writing–novel in progress
^get this radio show in production
^get those songs recorded
&I want to take a trip this year. A real vacation.
&And some shorter day trips and so forth. Hannibal. Meremac Caverns. Whatever.
&See a psychiatrist about the ADD (oh, wait!–I already did. Scratch this one off.)
&Fix my bike and ride it
&Put up heavy workout bag, practice tai chi and tkd
&Take a multivitamin (Check! Got this one covered!)
I’m well on my way to a happy and prosperous New Year! How about you?
