I'm going to quit taking anti-depressants this year. I don't think I need them anymore; my doctor and I have agreed to wait until spring to wind down since I get more easily depressed during winter.

I would like to be at home during summer/fall so I can enjoy my garden.

Read more books than I buy,

knit up at least half as much yarn as I buy (let's try to be realistic here - My stash *will* grow, all I can do is try to slow it down)

- Those are all rather realistic and shouldn't pose much of a challenge.

Now, for a challenge.. fit into pants one size smaller? But, 42 is a very nice number (THOSE ARE NOT INCHES! NOT THE US SIZE SYSTEM!). -I think we found out I use size 36 in men's pants the last time I was in the US. I like men's pants. They have Deep Pockets.

Eat Healthier would be hard too - my diet is reasonably healthful as it is, though I could probably benefit from reducing my chocolate intake. Not really willing to do that, though. I'd rather try to work out more. But what I can do is plan my meals better and track expiration dates to avoid having to throw away food. Eat more fruits, when available. Don't be afraid of "running out" - you either eat it, or it spoils and you have to throw it out. There's always frozen, canned and dry food for when you are out of fresh. (This is an actual problem since there aren't any stores in walking distance and public transportation is limited)

Learn to Drive is unrealistic to the extreme. I'm not motivated and there aren't opportunities here. Everything is so far away and public transportation is scarce. And I'm terrified of being in control of a vehicle that could kill someone if I fail a reflex save.


Wishes for the new year:

Someone fix my roof please.

More roleplaying, please.

No major misery befalling those I love.

I'd also like to have my sleep issues resolved, but somehow that wish seems less likely to be granted than the others. :P

  • This isn't what I wanted when I asked for "net access"

    I don't deserve this shit. My ISP got back to me and told me that they unfortunately cannot deliver because of capacity problems. My last resort…

  • Extended vacation.

    Time limit is up. Mom left, and I'm stuck here waiting for the cat. I hope I can get in touch with my little brother today and have him meet mom…

  • No Pants Day

    I have just been informed via my friends of friends page, that today is No Pants Day. This happens every first Friday of May. Happy No Pants day,…
