2012 New Year's Resolutions

This year, I resolve to:

1). Lose 20 lbs through better eating habits and smaller portions.
2). Spend money only when necessary, add to savings. Limit "discretionary" spending.
3). Read more.
4). Drink less (alcohol). Drink more water.That's it. Super easy. I'm already working on them, and it's hard, but I have to keep telling myself that it's really not that hard and the more I work on it and the longer I keep them, the better I will feel about myself!

Long time, no blog.

So I know no one checks this anymore, so it will become more of a timeline for me. Looking back, it looks like 2011 was a pretty pathetic blogging year for me. I've been catching up on other blogs, and it always amazes me to see how much people really keep up with it!! I know I've been good in the past, but since this summer, I haven't really done much.

I still have a ton of pictures from this summer that I haven't posted that I want to get around to...I just hope I can remember what all happened! That will have to be a totally different post.

And it's also not so much that I don't have any free time - I have a ton of free time! It's so weird that I find myself each day just wishing it would be 5 pm sooner, to only have that thought immediately followed by "Why? So you can go home and eat dinner and then...what?"

I have tons of books to read, and movies I want to catch up on, and craft projects to complete. I also have an almost 4 year old dog that has been cooped up all day and who wants to play all night!

So I don't really know why I don't blog. I guess I feel like I don't have much to say.

I will follow this blog entry with another one for New Year's Resolutions. In the past, I have always hated making them because I always break them. Then a few years back, I thought, why must I already be defeated before I start? So I started making them again...and upon looking back...Yep - definitely didn't accomplish them all. Previous years shown here (2011) and here (2010).

This year - I am making resolutions, and I WILL stick to them. I'm so sick of hearing other people always complaining about making them and then failing, and I'm also sick of myself doing that exact thing!!

So stay tuned, anyone that's out there - and I will get back to my old ways of creative photos and clever writing!
