Resolutions & Sawing at 4:30am

I never do this. I never make resolutions because they usually end up in the trash can by mid February if not sooner. This year though, I am making a ton, so we'll see. The running goals will be a entirely separate post.
  1. Read More : This is easy. When I was taking the train to work I was reading 2 hours per day. Just because I am not taking the train doesn't mean that I shouldn't be able to do that. So I am going to try and get back to reading 1-2 hours a day. I got some great new books for Christmas so I want to do that anyways
  2. Pictures : I got a new postcard printer for Christmas from Jason. So I can very easily, take pictures I have taken, print them and send them off to friends and family. Real mail is always more fun than e-mail & I get forced to taking more pictures so I think everyone wins.
  3. Finsih my PhD : I have to write my thesis. We redid the office, to be a place I want to be in. Now I just have to write the document. I have to get out of here and figure out what to do next...that won't happen without writing the degree.
  4. Birthdays : Everyone likes getting cards for their birthday. I never send them. EVER. It makes me a bad daughter, daughter-in-law, grand daughter, sister-in-law, etc. I feel bad all the time about it. So I need to collect birthdays from family so I can actually know when people are turning another year older.
  5. Dinner : I want to do less ordering from Penny's Noodle Shop and more making dinners. I got the Better Crocker cookbook where there looks to be lots of easy meals. It's not that hard to make dinner. It just needs to be done. I'm going for 4 days a week to start.
Since I'm not big on resolutions or very strict about it. This will all start next week.

So this morning at about 4:30, I wake up to the sound of sawing above our bed. Jason woke up too and we have no idea what it was. If this was Law & Order SVU there would be a guy carrying weirdly shaped bags to the trash with his cut up wife in them. Given that this is not TV, we have no idea what it was. We never hear the people upstairs and this was really loud!

I am feeling tons better today and I think after another day of rest I'll be back to 100%.

Ooh...and I'm 3/3 for blogging in the new Year....Yes I am counting the drunk/exhausted post from the 1st.

I really like your birthday card resolution. I may have to steal that one.

Looking forward to your running resolutions!
