2011 New Year's Resolutions

Well, it is that time again....You know, when you sit down and look over the past year at what you did or didn't achieve and then look forward with hopes and dreams in your heart with a blank slate of possibilities for the coming year. It is that time when you sit down and think about what you hope to accomplish in the coming 365 days; what you resolve to change; what you promise yourself to stay away from. This is your chance to put it out there to the universe....

And, this is me... putting it out there to the universe...... In 2011 I resolve......

  1. To reach my goal weight (surprise, surprise)
  2. To finish at least the same number of books in 2011 that I read in 2010 and provide my faithful audience with a review
  3. To finish half the quilts that are currently in my UFO pile
  4. To open an ETSY store and try to actually sell something
  5. To create and stick to a budget
  6. To implement a REAL filing system and stay organized
  7. To buy more shoes (oh no, twist my arm on this one)
  8. To cook at home more and actually invite people over, which means I have to keep my house clean
  9. To complete all of the exercises in The Artists Way and Writing Down the Bones
  10. To watch less television...I still need to come up with a reasonable number of hours a week
  11. To get my PMP Certification
  12. To come back in 3 months and provide an update on these resolutions
  13. To become more involved in my community...or a community....maybe a community of squirrels would like me to join.....
  14. To get my passport and in turn do some traveling
  15. To open my heart to love (and actually join and contact the guy that I've been stalking out there)

Whew, I think that is enough for now. As stated, I'll revisit these in 3 months and re-evaluate my progress and goals.

I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful New Year! May we all have joy and be prosperous.

Fabulous list! You should know that you are responsible for my one and only resolution for this year: to blog more.

Looking forward to the Etsy results (let me know if you need *any* help at all). Oh, and the community of squirrels in our front tree are looking for an evil master to command them, but they want to know if you offer uniforms and free dental? Just askin'.....
