I Think You're Supposed to Write Them Down

I think I read somewhere once that unless you write down your New Year's Resolutions they will come to nothing. As I want them to come to something and not nothing, here goes:

  1. Compete in my local Road Runners Club's championship series. This means I have to run at least five of their races and finish in the top ten for my age group. I looked up the top ten times of 2008 and want to beat them all. While this won't guarantee a solid finish this year, it's at least a goal.
  2. Take at least one video of the family a month. While spending time with Chuck's brother in North Carolina, we watched what videos we had of Rhett on our camera. We're pretty sure that they'd never been watched before then, but it was so much fun! We had forgotten how little and funny he was. Along with this goal is to actually take those videos from the camera and put them on a DVD (but that's Chuck's resolution).
  3. Get up to date on my digital scrapbooking. Enough said.
  4. Develop more traditions. I love traditions (see previous post on schedules and regularity). And now with Rhett, I want him to have them. The first one that comes to mind? Eating only green foods on St. Patrick's Day ala this. The second corollary is that I will make a hideously tacky felt advent calendar for next year's Christmas like the one my mom sold at a garage sale (it still pains me).

There they are. Bring it on 2009!

resolutions are lame. however, i'll play along. i resolve (or at least will give an honest effort) to return to pre-pregnancy weight by the end of the year which is two months sooner than when i did it after birthing zig. selfish ain't i?
