Take a real vacation. on the to do list
, if the house sells before I start my new job i may splurge and go to California for a week
Not exactly a resolution, but around New Years I decided to start keeping a dream journal. So I bought a blank spiral-bound book and started recording some of my more memorable dreams. And boy there's some crazy sh*t that goes on in my subconscious!! Seem to be going through a period of having vivid and bizarre dreams.
The plan is to eventually learn more about dream interpretation and then maybe go back and see if I can make some sense of them.
Based on the number of pages I've filled up, I'm doing well!
Doing better this year. Bought a house - that was one. Lost some weight - that's two. Spedning more time with my family - that's three. Being named in a paternity suit by J'Lo - oh, sure that is shooting way high but then again I still have nearly ten months to work on it.
Some of the stuff I listed has had some "changes" made:
I am not learning that much html but learning who can be gotten for a reasonable price. Different solution, same result.
Ongoing research has caused some changes in the educational goals for my kids, not at all an uncommon thing. So the specifics I listed are largely "out of date" and I won't bore you guys with the details of the exciting new adventures that are coming together, in part thanks to a good friend lovingly throwing me to the wolves in a homeschooling forum. :-}
I am launching a business and there are some cool developments in that area. For example, I just joined as a board member for a fledging GIS organization and that is kind of Cool.
I am making progress on work on my websites, although much of that is still "behind the scenes" and you might not know it by going to my websites.
The two things on my original list that have not been done yet and which are really starting to feel pressing are: put a GIS on my laptop and finish painting the bedframe in the shed. Sigh.
