chao, 2010! and some plans for 2011

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,ย 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).

    “Remain childless”…. Love it. And the flossing one…I should definitely consider that for myself. Good luck to all of the above! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I should add “remain childless” to my official resolution list. Also, I keep slipping in and out of the flossing thing…but there’s nothing better than the superior feeling you get from flossing every day. Hah.
