2010 was productive. Let’s reflect: I got a new job, moved to a new city, moved in with a boy, bought a house with said boy, took home a pup, battled an opossum, got promoted, did some hard math, grew hundreds of tomatoes, got married, lost an election, and made lots of little decisions in between. I can only hope that 2011 will be as exciting/gratifying/exhausting/amazing.
And what’s a new year without some well-intended promises? Inspired by Dot’s goals, here are my plans for the new year:
- Travel more, see more
John and I need to get out.
- Get connected and write more letters
Most of my friends know I am the best pen pal and the worst returner-of-phone-calls. I think this is going to be the year I embrace that.
- Grow some more food
Tomatoes are only the beginning … can’t wait for springtime.
- Floss every day
But this year I mean it.
- Do something scary
Yet to be determined. Vague, but potentially impactful. Definitely not jumping out of a plane though.
- Remain childless!
So far, so good! (Dear friends who took bets at our wedding, I’m sorry you’re going to lose all that money).
