New Year Promises

(Local field in the winter with Mt. Diablo in the background.)

Everyone else does them so I will too. This will be the first time in my life, really, that I have New Year's resolutions. I guess in the past I thought I was perfect and now, in my later 30's, I have finally realized that my thighs really are chubby and I do need to work on being greener. Wow! I have flaws. Ha ha. I think I was always avoiding goals. If I don't have goals I can't be let down. Well, let's see how I do.
2009 Promises to myself:
  1. Lose weight. (This is my first time pledging this for a new year, really.)
  2. Use less plastic.
  3. Prepare for winter by preparing more local foods in the summer.
  4. Eat the local frozen foods I prepared.
  5. Ride my bike or walk more.
  6. Get a job.
  7. Be less cranky with my husband. (I can be a real b*tch at times-monthly. lol)

There they are. I may need someone to ride a bit in these throughout the year because I can get pretty distracted.

Be Green '09!
