I don't really like the idea of New Year's Resolutions. I think a lot of people use it as an excuse to start a new diet or exercise plan that they completely quit by February. If you're going to make a positive change in your life, you can start it any day, it doesn't need to be January 1st. But, who am I to make fun of people for doing something good for themselves, right?

I do like the idea though of looking at this new year and thinking of how I want it to go. Though I really have such little control over how it will inevitably go, I can make conscious choices that can possibly help shape it. Best intentions and all that.

So 2014, this bright, shiny, new year, I hope...

* To get a new *** (some things you can't REALLY say on your public blog, now can you?)
* To be ******** (whoops, not that one either)
* For my mom to visit us
* To drink less (my raging champagne headache this morning agrees)
* To be running again like we were back in California (my fat ass agrees)
* To own more pants (I know how stupid this sounds, but I own like 2 pairs of good pants, it's a problem)
* To have at least a little better idea of where we're going to end up living
* To continue to be thankful for where we live now and the different turns our lives have taken
* To buy more from the local farmers (we always end up grocery shopping too soon and missing the good markets)
* To take the dogs on longer walks
* To make some friends (this one's a pathetic one, but for reals, we need to)
* To blog more and put more effort into it
* To read more and watch less tv
* To just do more. Couldn't we all just do more? Get off my ass more, read more, blog more, work out more, all that. 

And on top of all that I hope to not...

* Get down on myself as much
* Get as frustrated at work
* Stress about the future, just let it happen
* Think as many negative thoughts
* Be demotivated both in the gym and at work and just anywhere

So...let's do this 2014 shall we? And really, not just 2014, but from now on, eh? 

Hoping this year gives me answers.
