Happy New Year everyone! I’m so happy for 2012 to be here! 2011 was a challenging year and I think 2012 will be a great fresh start. :)
Mike and I spent New Year at our friend Ally’s house and we brought with a bunch of 36″ sparklers that we had left over from our wedding. Because nothing says New Years like enormous sparklers!
I have to admit, I’m usually not a huge fan of New Years. I usually see it as just another day, but last year is one that I’m glad is done. I generally have a rule that I don’t make resolutions, because I never complete them anyways and then I just feel guilty and terrible about myself for not finishing my goals. But this year I kind of want to make a few and try to actually finish them.
So, here we go.
1 – I want to drive more. Everyone knows that I hate hate HATE driving, meaning Michael is essentially my chauffeur. I really want to get to a point where I drive at least once a week. On my own. And under not-always-perfect circumstances (i.e. low traffic, daylight, perfect weather, etc)
2 – I want to hang out with people more. I’m such a homebody who is much more comfortable just laying low, but I want to try to put myself out there and hang out with friends more. I do have some amazing friends and I want to spend more time with them.
3 – I want to run in the Manitoba Marathon (on Father’s Day in June). I did in 2010 and it was so much fun. I don’t really care if I run the 5k or the half, or what my time is, I just want to do it. I miss running.
4 – I want to finish our kitchen. PLEASE. If it’s not done by the end of 2012, I give up.
5 – I want to go on a vacation. Mike and I usually go on two trips a year, one bigger and then a smaller road trip, but with buying a house, we’re a lot tighter for cash. I want to be able to save enough money for us to go on a decent vacation this year.
What are your resolutions for the New Year?
