Okay so let's review my old/new resolutions:
learn to sew clothing—Yikes. Already I'm doubting my decision. I mean, I really want to sew clothes, but who knows how long it will take me to get my sewing machine out of its box (speaking of, where is that box?) and then, and then find a clear surface to put it on, perhaps needing to buy a clear surface first? Spring? Summer? Oh well. I still remain resolute. Plus, I can't really fail now that I've decided resolutions have no expiration date.
organize basement—aaaaahahaha ahahaha hahaha! oooooh.... No seriously, this has to happen. The basement is where we keep the big man TV and where Community happens. If we don't make some sense of the basement I won't be able to enjoy Community and then really, why go on?
exercise 3x's per week—ummm, we're going to go ahead and modify this one. That there number is too measurable and too failable (not a word). Let's just say exercise. Oh! I know! I'll try to exercise as many times as I bake per week. Yeah. That's brilliant.
write more letters/cards—seems straight forward enough, I should be able to do that one.
meet more bloggers—Oh hey! That's you! Let's meet! Although I should say that I did meet quite a few lovely blogging ladies in 2010. I hope I can meet even more of you in 2011!
take photos in manual—Oh jeez, is this going to be on my resolution list forever? Can't I just learn this already?
create daily—This one is so challenging and so rewarding. And don't think I don't count non-craft creations too. Like the pile of clean folded laundry I just created? Totally counts.
learn to make books—(see also: my rantings about taking photos in manual)
start doing yoga again—yes.
consume less—You know, technically I rocked this resolution last year. Turns out it is super easy to buy less stuff when you have less moneys. Also, I should probably add the word "food" to this one.
declutter home—Oh heaven help me. This isn't even a choice anymore.
write daily—yes, yes.
read daily—Wow. I totally forgot that one was on there. Done! Yes! Resolved! New resolution: read 29 books before I turn 30. Ugh. I've never typed number that out before in reference to my age. We'll confront the 30 thing later.*
no more library fines—Okay, well this is kind of a crap resolution for me. It's never going to happen. NEVER. I'm going to start thinking of my library fines as my personal philanthropic contributions to my beloved library.
run a race—Hey! Maybe there will be more non-Sunday races here in the Gem State!
play more board games—Done and DONE. I was all kinds of agreeable when it came to playing board games in 2010. Just ask N8tr0n, he's the one I made the resolution for.
embrace daily—embrace was my "one little word" for 2010 and man, did it ever come in handy. I have a new word this year but I'm pretty sure I can still give daily life a big embrace. Sounds like a good resolution to me.
Okay! So my resolutions for 2011. Exactly the same as 2010 but for reals this year. No, but for reals. Really, really.
*I'm turning 30 this year and I know it's not a big deal and I kind of want to talk about it but I don't really want to talk about it.
