2007 Resolutions!!!

Well... I normally do not make resolutions, but I do set goals for myself for the new year. I was wondering what are some of the goals that you will set for yourself for the new year... do you care to share???

Here are a few of mine:

Family - spend more time with family and not to squander the opportunities to do so.

Forgiveness

Thankfulness

Eating something new and different that I have never tried at least once a month.

Also, I fully intend losing 20 lbs, running 17 miles a day, eating nothing but veggies and tofu, putting on loads of sunblock, getting to bed by 9pm.... AS IF!!! C'mon... lets hear yours!!!

I made the same resolution many many years ago YT2095, but this year for the first year I will be breaking it. I have decided that for the first time in my life I need to go on a diet and lose some weight so starting Jan 1 I will be attempting to lose 20lbs.

good luck gb.

i too need to lose a few (dozen), so i'm resolved to clean up the back bedroom downstairs, and organize it with the basement and storage unit so i can get my exercise bike and weight bench set up again.

also, i promised dw to finally get the last things repaired so we can sell the house and move into a bigger, one family home. bigger house = bigger family, hopefully.

Sattie, like yourself, I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. If there is something I would like to change, I do it now. Goal setting & re-assessment is an excellent idea for the new year. Happy NEW year.

I don't make any, learned a long time ago that if something needs to be changed, do it then and there.

I don't make them because I feel worse if (when) I break them.

BUT I am going to work on 2 of Sattie's which I find very important: Forgiveness and Thankfulness

Sometimes the intangible resolutions are the best, for me anyway.

My resolutions are about the same as they have been for the past few years.

Find new and good wines under $10 ... and then drink them.

Find new ingredients and cook something wonderful with them.

Hunt and fish 5 more days then I did last year. ( I'm up to about 90-95)

Contiunue spoiling my wife.

Remember to leave the seat down.


Happy New Year,

JDP

Nice JDP!
I'm setting goals, not making resolutions. I've never pulled through on any resolutions in the past so have decided to call them something different this year!
My goals are to write more. Maybe even start a novel.
Cook healthier meals using new and exciting ingredients. (Experiment a bit)
Pamper myself a little every day.
Pamper my family a little every day.
And to keep up with the wash!

Happy 2007 and Good Luck to All on your resolutions/goals!
