Happy 2008

Now is the time for the pursuit of worthy goals with an action plan to achieve them. Yes, I’m talking about my New Year Resolutions:

1. Weigh less than 210 pounds by June 15th.
a. Walk 12,000 steps a day.
b. Forgo all fried foods
c. Forgo all desserts.
d. Never go back for seconds.
e. Deny all temptation to have a glass of wine on a week night.

2. Finish the novel I’ve been working on.
a. Write no less than 500 words a day.
b. Deny all temptation to have a glass of wine while writing.

3. Live a more Green life.
a. Use cloth totes instead of plastic bags at the grocery store.
b. Walk to any destination within 1 mile of the house.
c. Increase the range of products we recycle.

4. Stay within the budget!
a. Deny all temptation to purchase wine that cost more than $15 a bottle.
b. Stop buying everything at Whole Foods.
c. Learn to say “No” to the girls.
d. Veto Jill’s request to increase Princess’ clothing allowance.

OK, that’s enough - a short but manageable list. I also plan to post more regularly on this blog this year, which should be easy to do now that the launch date of Daddy’s Little Girl is less than 2 months away. But as far as today goes, this is it. We had 26 people over yesterday for collards and black-eyed peas, the traditional southern meal for bringing luck to your new year, and I still have dishes to clean. Have a great 2008!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Now go out and hug somebody!
