2009 New Years Resolutions

Make your New Year’s resolutions yet?

I have a few resolutions this year. I am hoping that by putting these out in the open, I will embarrass myself into actually succeeding in them. None of this fluff stuff, like going to the gym, it’s stuff that I am really wanting to do, are already doing to some extent and want to continue to do.

In no particular order:
  • Get Married.
  • Survive first fight with new wife.
  • Buy house or get myself into a position where I can buy a house in the first quarter of 2010.
  • Pay off Discover Card.
  • Get vehicle for Katie whether it’s a new used one for her, or the Escape for her and a new wreck for me.
  • Grow some of my own food – ether in my little planter shelf set in the apartment or in a real garden.
  • Keep on blogging.
  • Get this video thing figured out so I can both take videos and edit them so I don’t make my viewers motion sick.
  • Send out Christmas cards to friends and family.
  • Visit the new family during Feast.
  • Give birthday presents to all the new Nieces and Nephews I will be getting when I get married.
  • Visit my folks once a month.
  • Change a tire for a stranger – the last couple of years, they keep turning me down. 
  • Create a new website for myself.
  • Pay my bills on time. It’s amazing how retarded I am about this. The money is in the bank, but I just don’t get it done!
  • Call my mom on her birthday.
  • Explore the Burmidge Forest Park that is just 2 miles from my apartment.
  • Go camping. At least twice.
  • Go somewhere I haven’t been with Katie.
  • Take Katie somewhere she hasn’t been that I have.
  • Get a Digital SLR camera.
  • Make something from scratch that I can use regularly with the sewing machine.
  • Finish the PakYak. Maybe build one that will fit me.
  • Learn how to use a chainsaw.
  • Help dad get a years worth of wood put up at the new house.
  • Go fishing
  • Go Hunting
  • Get 110 gallon tank running in some fashion
  • Get TV tank up and running again.
  • Visit friends that are out of state.
  • get some canning gear and learn how to can food.

I think that’s a pretty good list. I am going to have 365 days to do it all in. That means ticking one item off the list every 12 days or so. I guess I had better dive into this here list.
Do you have any of the same resolutions? Any suggestions?

  3. WOW!I guess that means you have to get up in the morning to get some of these done! I really like the one about calling your MAMA on her birthday. Shouldn’t be a problem this year as you will be looking her in the face on that day….That is a lot of presents! But your a good shopper at clearance prices so maybe that will be fun.for a while…
