Oh goody, I was able to find that list of 2010 resolutions I blogged about as I started the new year. As I begin to think about my 2011 resolutions, I wanted to check out how I did in 2010.
lose 10-15 pounds (this really won’t happen, since I’m already in pretty good shape and have weighed the same for almost ten years – but I just like to put the dream out there in the universe) ……….I was dead on. Nothing lost. But nothing gained, either, so really it’s a win-win.
start sewing more and making homemade gifts (love this one, and it’s something I may actually be able to stick to now that I have my craft room)………….So, I don’t think I crafted as much as I wanted to, but I definitely made some things that I loved and gave them to friends.
reel in my spending (damn you, Starbucks, and your awesome awesomeness) – and therefore save more……..I did, in fact, give up my morning Starbucks.
keep up my monthly anniversary cards to my husband (easy – I love to write them – he loves to read them)………Check! Done! Except for December, which I’m totally blaming on Christmas.
start carrying around my camera more often and taking more video with the flip – these are the days we’ll want those future kids of ours to see – when we were young and hip (or something like that)…………..I could’ve been better at this, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. One, B. just gave me a Leica for Christmas (I wanna do a little dance just thinking about it), and two, I actually filmed us opening our presents this year. It’s so funny and nice – there’s a point where B. is having trouble reading my handwriting on the card I gave him, and you can just see the wheels turning before he finally looks at me to ask me what the first word says.
watch less tv and read more……….I don’t know if I watch tv less, but I definitely read more. Even if I’m not updating my Books page, I promise, there’s reading going on.
plan our big trip to who-knows-where (any suggestions?)…………..Geographically, we didn’t go anywhere new. But we did take a big trip when flew home to New Orleans to help build a house with Habitat for Humanity. Sun, sweat, and long-felt exhaustion never felt so good.
keep up this dang blog of mine……………….Well, it’s sort of like the tv thing. And the camera thing. And the spending thing. It’s not that I failed miserably, but I could’ve done better.
All in all, not a total loss, right? Come back for Checking in 2011 in the next couple of days.
