Writer's Block: Auld Lang Syne

What are your New Year's resolutions? Do you think you'll stick to any of them? If so, for how long?

Let's take a look at the ones I made for this year, then...

Quit taking anti-depressants: Check
Be home during summer/fall: Check
Read more books than I buy: Failed. I read all of two library books, and while I got a much better ratio of books read versus books purchased than I did in 2009, I'm sure it doesn't even come close to 1:1.
Knit up at least half as much yarn as I buy: Failed horribly. I think my ratio is more like 1:5
Go down one pants size: Accomplished. More like one and a half, really. 2010 was the year I finally shed all that excess weight that had been slowly piling on for the last decade and a half.
Eat healthier: Probably failed. But I definitely succeeded in not eating so damn much.

For 2011, I want to:
Read more
Exercise more often/regularly
Spend more time with my cat
Take more photos
Update LJ more regularly, at least once every fortnight
Go up Brosviksåta more than once
Go swimming more (yeah, I think I did it once or twice in 2010)
Knit a sweater or cardigan, or at least a vest OR learn fair-isle knitting. (AND is if course also acceptable, but I'll consider it a success if I accomplish just one of the two.)
Continue to visit grandparents often, and cook for them at least twice a month
Get to a dentist and have something done about the tooth that got chipped two years ago
Get a haircut. Have not had one for more than three years now.
And seriously, figure out how to declutter my home and make it stay nice.

    Up sometime after noon, as usual. Gorgeous weather today, and I don't imagine it's going to last, so I went out to the lake. I enjoyed the walk,…
