First list of 2006

Posted by jackie blue on January 3rd, 2006

I don’t usually do a resolutions list. I think that sets me up for a sure failure to keep them. But I’m bored at work today, so what the hell. I for sure will have to keep at least some of them, right? So here goes, knitting and not, and in no particular order.

1) I will not buy any yarn for myself, excluding a gift certificate I want to use, and possible gifts, for at least the first quarter of 2006. I am going to shoot for half.

2) I will always have a pair of socks on the needles, because I discovered that even though I am a boot or sandals girl and no one ever sees them, I like wearing them.

3) I will finish several neglected knitting projects. This means spending less time online, more time knitting.

4) I will keep my apartment considerably neater than it’s been, so I can have spontaneous guests now and then.

5) I will lose the 15 pounds I gained in 2005, and without “dieting”.

6) I will use my gym membership again on a regular basis (see 5).

7) I will cook a lot more, and order in a lot less (see 5).

8) I will entertain at home more (see 4 and 7).

9) I will do my best to find more work and make more money so I can afford to entertain.

10) I will keep in touch with friends who are afar, and spend a lot of time with those who are near.

11) I’ll do my best to appreciate what I have instead of pining for what I want.

12) I’ll keep my temper in check.

*bonus resolution 13)I’ll win the lottery, buy a great home, meet the man of my dreams, and have a kid before it’s too late.

OK, I’m not holding out too much hope for the last one, but I couldn’t resist.
