I face 2011 with an optimistic view. I typically hate new years because Christmas is always a real bummer for me but I was really happy this time out. Here's what I'm telling myself this year.

1. Be happy with yourself.
2. Make music. You have no excuses.
3. Read more. You used to do at least two per month. You have a Kindle now. Use it.
4. Finish painting over all that patch work that was done several months ago. If you don't you're no better than your lazy neighbors.
5. Finish refinishing those chairs and that table.
6. Put up more shelves in the storage space and get organized. Buy bins.
7. Help your wife more.
8. Be more frugal. You have plenty of stuff to keep you happy. All you need is food and toilet paper.

I think eight things are pretty good. I'll come up with more things I'm sure but these are all things I'm going to do.


  1. Great list. I especially like 7. Although I think you already help me tons! You're a fantastic husband. :)

  2. I can do more. The kitchen is pretty messy right now.
