New Year’s Resolutions For 2009

Tis the season to make New Year’s Resolutions.  I wonder if putting them up on the Internet for everyone to see will help me to keep them.

1.  Make sure to take the Mrs. out once a week.  Getting time alone with SheWhoPicksUpToys is a challenge around here, so I want to get out with her more, even if each time out is not for something exciting or romantic.  I tried this last year, and was doing OK for a while, but lack of creativity, plus cheapness, led to slacking off. 

2.  Read the Koran, and blog about it.  We will be dealing with Islam a lot in this century, whether we want to or not, so understanding Islam is about as important as understanding Communism was in the 20th century.  I hope to read the Koran, Surah by Surah, and write blog some comments as I go along.

3.  Follow the Scripture readings and prayers in the Book of Common Prayer.  I started this on Advent, and have been pretty good about it.  I hope to continue through the church year.

4.  Start doing basic car maintenance again.  Some of the motivation is saving money, but also I should teach my kids how to do the basics, especially since one can drive now, and another will be driving before the end of the year.

  2. Well, he’s good for this week on #1. To be fair, sometimes the busyness of our lives sabotaged his honest efforts to fulfill this one last year. I expect that to happen again this year, but I do appreciate the effort!
