I Aspire To Be More In Two Thousand One Four

That really is a blanket statement isn’t it? Of course we all want to be better. For ourselves, for our families, for our cult leaders … we all want to improve. Most people wait until AFTER the New Near to make their resolutions. Since I know that I am not going to keep any of them, I figure that now is as good a time as any. If nothing else it gives me something to do until Christmas Eve dinner.

I would love to say that I have grand plans for things in the coming year. I don’t. I pretty much want to stay employed and out of jail, preferably in that order. However, since it is “the thing” to do at the end of the year, here are some goals for next year. These are in no particular order of importance, just as I came up with them.

  1. Lose another 20 pounds – I think I can do this. It will require me to do a little more than the grip things from yesterday’s post, but it will be worth it. I will once again be in shape to participate in the RHPS. Break out those fish nets.
  2. Blog more often – This one is tough. I seem to have a lot of people reading this blog … well, they are subscribed to it. I would actually like to give them something to read once in a while. I also would like that content to be entertaining in some way. Write AND be entertaining. Asking a lot of myself.
  3. Remember which cookie recipes worked this year for next year – Every year I seem to pick the ones I didn’t like or forget what I did right. Next year … will be different.
  4. Start using my Muppet more – I am going to let you just stew on that one.
  5. Update my blog – This isn’t something that has to be a major overhaul. I just need to update old links, remove dead links and just make it look like I actually look at the site once in a while.
  6. Read a book, or 2 – I have some books at home. I have some books on my wife’s Kindle. I am lazy. Yes, I have become too lazy to read.
  7. Find my kids jobs – I am only half joking on this. They want to go to day care, then they need to start earning their way.
  8. Take a “me” weekend and have a movie marathon – Not sure if I want to go good movies or bad. I am thinking do an actor themed set but then what actor do I pick? Segal? Hopkins? Flynn? Jay-Z? The choices are endless.
  9. Clean the basement – Not a real lofty goal but something that needs to be done. The kids will very soon need a larger area for a play room and I will be damned if I am going to pay for “open gym” and put up with awkward play dates.
  10. Paint the house – Or rather, have it painted. We have lived there almost 7 years now. The outside needs to be painted and the inside needs it bad. Maybe I can turn each room one by one into a playroom and have the kids paint them for me.

 

Have a great Christmas everyone. If you don’t celebrate Christmas … then don’t have a great Christmas.
