No Resolutions Just Promises?

Last year I tried to make some resolutions.  Yeah, well, they didn't go so well.  The only one I really kept was the blogging one.  So this year I'm going to try something different.  I'm going to make some promises to myself and make a list of things I want to accomplish--most definitely not resolutions.
So for the promises:
  • to give myself a break.  Go do something just for me, no one else at least once a week.  Even if it is just a leisurely stroll through the book store, sans kids.  Better if it's an evening out with friends.
  • to see the kitchen as a room of possibility, not drudgery.  I need to find the magic of cooking again.  Easy simple things that don't come from a box or bag.
  • to start doing more walking, hiking, skiing, camping, garden work--just be outdoors more--weather permitting of course.
  • To not be so down on myself so much.  I need to work on the glass half full part not the glass half empty part.
Now for the things I want to accomplish this year.
  • Scrapbooking.  I am so far behind.  I need to organize projects and get them done.  No excuses.
  • Camping--I want to go camping with my family lots this year.  We have a fabulous new camper and we need to get out there and go enjoy it.
  • I want to get to Rocky Mountian National park.  It's less than 2 hours away and I've never been there.  
  • I want to read new books.  I have a hard time finding new books, but I need to read more.  It's good for my soul.
I think that is enough for this year.  2011 can bring it on.  I think I can handle it.

I think those are some great promises and accomplishments! I'm behind on my scrapbooking, too. Here's hoping you get to check off all of these things in 2011!

This is a wonderful list, especially since it can be done so cheaply! :-)

I like that - making a list of to-do things for the year that you can check off! Do-able things!

I don't do resolutions. I stopped that years ago.

Happy New Year!
