Resolutions Smesolutions.... Post 2 of 2.

So it's been awhile. A long while.

Something happened today that made me think it was time to get back in to the swing of things called life. I got this feeling right after I finished my 5Th book in 3 weeks that I said... wow, you're aren't doing anything these days besides sit around, get your act together lady.

And then I rocked the night :)

I tore apart my bedroom, cleaning out nooks and crannies... getting rid of stuff, and finding some gems that I had stored away for a rainy day. I had no idea I had almost 20 purses stashed in my closet, and I plan on using as many of them as I can in the near future, I've got some great ones in there!

I contemplated things while I was doing this, like getting married for tax purposes, which side of my face my hair should part, and the chemical makeup of the stuff that whitens teeth. You know, your normal average every day stuff.

I also thought a lot about all the things I want to do this year, and what I want to have accomplished. I think a lot of that thinking was related to the fact that I saw my W2 from last year and cried on the inside for the fact that I made a lot more than I thought... and still don't really have much to show for it.

So... here are the 12 things I want to do in 09....

12. I want to seriously look into getting licensed to do hair. I would enjoy it immensely and it would be nice to be a professional.

11. Get my own place. This is probably the biggest thing I want to do this year. There is so much I love about living with Melissa and Brian, but I want somewhere where I can get up in the middle of the night to get a glass of water and not have to worry about finding clothes.

10. Get a pet. A giant rabbit tops my list, but a new kitty or puppy would be good too.

9. Go to the gym at least twice a week. Even with my work schedule, if I can only go in on the weekends, I want to go.

8. Go back west. (I totally just got the credits to Pretty Woman in my head... did you?) There are some serious parts of Seattle I miss, some people I would like to meet in person for the first time, and some people I just want to see.

7. Work less or more, but find the happy medium. Even though I don't think about work when I leave the office, I also don't want to ever think about what is going to be waiting for me when I get back. Whether I work more to do that, or work less, it doesn't matter.

6. Go to the dentist. I have now got no less than 3 broken teeth. I think I need at least 1 more root canal, and I definitely need to have a tooth pulled. There is a reason my dad had dentures at 21, and I think I have reaped the genetic benefits of that act.

5. Find a new hobby. Or resurrect an old one. I really want to do pottery again. I wonder if there is anyone that would like to go with me?

4. Spend more time at Disney. There are a million of you that would say that I already go a lot, but the fact of the matter is, there is so much that I miss there.

3. Talk to more people on the phone. I rarely return phone calls, and never initiate conversation. There are a billion people I need to talk to and miss back home, it's about time I did that.

2. Show my Dad Orlando. I hope to have the chance to do that in the Spring when my dad travels across country on his first vacation in over 10 years. (Sound familiar? I'm only up to 3 years, maybe 4)

1. Be happy. I've been lucky to meet this requirement for most of 08, and definitely this first month of 09, all I ask is that it continues.

Here's to blogging being on that list too....
