Resolutions and dirty houses

Call me ridiculous, but I totally buy into the whole concept of "New Year, new start," so I make new year resolutions. I, unlike most though, tend to keep them. I kept my resolutions in both 2006 and 2007: train for an endurance athletic event and get my financial house in order. The 2007 resolution is definitely a long term thing, but I made the substantial start I needed in 2007 for longterm financial stability and happiness. (I sound like an infomercial)

Today I made a major trip to the grocery, went to the dry cleaner, put a chicken in slow cooker, made a loaf of french bread, and started a major cleaning of my house. Considering the state of my house, the cleaning is a three day process at least. Anyway, I'm already feeling like I'm off to a good start.

So, as for the 2008 resolutions, here they are:

1. Continue the good work on 2007's resolution. Make good financial decisions. Continue a credit card free lifestyle, pay off debts, and save, save, save.

2. Complete another century ride and embrace a healthy lifestyle for good! 2007 was a good financial year, but a bad health year. Unlike the 2006 resolution, this one requires me to do more than just complete an event. I need to be in overall tip-top shape and health. Not only will this help me perform well on the ride, but it will make me a happier and healthier human being.

So there they are, for all to see. I'm ready.

I was thinking the same thing... with bacon. Maybe I'll resolve to eat more bacon this year.
