Well folks, later today I will be out hustling my ass for 5K through snow and slush. Keep your fingers crossed that I actually survive this damned race. At least it’s only supposed to be a few degrees below zero, so I won’t freeze to death. One must look on the bright side, yes?
(And someone please whack me upside the head with a wet noodle if I think about doing this again, please.)
So, gang — another year has come and gone. This one had its ups and downs, didn’t it? But all in all, it wasn’t a bad twelve months.
I’m not going to talk about resolutions, because I don’t really believe in them, per se. Why do people insist on making dramatic lifestyle changes on January first, anyway? I know technically it’s a “new” year, but really, folks. Any day is good for a resolution, isn’t it?
That said, however, I have to admit I’d like to attempt a couple of minor lifestyle changes, myself. I’m going to try to keep better track of my sheckles this year — I’ve been slipping on my bookkeeping skills (oops!) — and I would like to get a more solid idea of where my hard-earned bucks are going.
I don’t need to make any fitness resolutions, really — I’m already pretty solidly on that track. In preparation for spring/summer 08, I’ve discussed some changes of focus with Mr. Hot Stuff P.T. already, so that’s set.
So really, the only other thing I’d like to improve on is the ol’ productivity. I’ve got enough story ideas to keep me set for a little while — the trick now is consistency with word counts, and finishing hopefully more than a couple projects this year. January is a good month for settling down into the grind again, so that’s definitely the plan.
Well, gang, I’m going to be spending the evening with the kidlet, Rella and fam, a few other good friends, and the New (as yet un-nicknamed) Boy, so I won’t be around to wish you all well when the clock strikes twelve.
Here’s to a successful, productive and fun-filled 2008!
