Friday, August 28. About 8:30 a.m.
For some reason, I started pondering the New Year's resolutions. Did I make any? I vaguely remember sitting at the mall food court with the family, slurping on ice cream cones, while we knocked a few around.
So I went digging around in the archives, and YES, I really did make some. Did you? Remember them? How's that workin' for ya??
I thought I'd do a little rehash, a little check-up, a little examination - check the pulse and all that. This is what I said I'd do this year:
Regarding my job, I wanted to add some more responsibilities (a.k.a more cash). I think I've done what I set out to do. I'd say I'm happy with my current level of hours and responsibilities, at least until the end of this year. Then we'll slurp on an ice cream cone and decide what's next.
Regarding the housewifery, I wanted to get a better handle on the food stores and whatnot, stocking the pantry with provisions in case of emergency. Uhm, maybe it's a little better stocked and better organized than it was at the beginning of the year, but could be better. B minus on that one.
Nextly, on the physical front, I wanted to run more miles this year than I ran last year. Right after I made that resolution, I was sidelined with a pesky foot injury for 3-4 months. Doesn't look that I will top the mileage from last year, BUT I'm happy with where I am NOW after my return to running, so that works for me.
I wanted to improve some friendships. Hmmmm, that's kind of vague. I should work on that some more, and be more specific.
For the Mom wars, I wanted to help the kids become more responsible and independent. I think they're doing well. And then there's that "Pay The Putzfrau" program in place. CHA-CHING!!
Magnum and I resolved to go on more dates. I think we have. Then there's those old folk's strolls we've added to our evenings. I think we get A's here.
So. Okay. I'm glad I went digging around in the archives. I'm glad I have archives to dig around in. Four more months 'til deadline!
