You say you want a resolution...

I'm not big into New Year's resolutions. It's the standard idea "you're going to break it in a week" so why bother? But this year I do have some goals and I want to put them pen to paper...or keyboard to blog.

1- I want to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.

2- Knit and complete 12 projects. They don't have to be big projects, I just have to do 12 of them.

3- Bake more. (You may notice, there is not going to be any of that "lose 15 pounds" nonsense here. I like the food).

4- Have more sex. (tmi? Most definitely!)

5- Learn to sew

6- Read to Oscar more.

7- Combat Slacktavism. I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things. So I want to try and do one good deed, or one service of activism for things I care about each month. This year I did really well. We recycle about as much as we throw out, we compost, we cloth diaper. Those are good environmental steps. But there are other things I could and should be doing. However, I don't want to broadcast every good deed I do because then I will look like an asshole. OR I might inspire my little group of readers here to maybe reach out and do something as well. It will probably be a mix of both, but believe me, I have big plans for myself this year!

8- Spend less time on the internet. I'm not going to give up the stuff I love, but just maybe try and love it a little less. There is no reason why I need to know everything happening on Facebook all day. Especially when I could be curled up on the sofa watching Supernatural with my amazing husband knitting up something cute.

9- ...and to complete contradict number 8---BLOG MORE. I love blogging, I just need to be a bit more organized and do it.

10- Finish the Sherlock Holmes series. I've been working on it for 2 years, and to be fair, I barely touched it this year, but I HAVE to finish it. So maybe tackle a story or 2 between books? We'll see.

I'm completely psyched about 2011.
