Welcome to 2005

So New Year's wasn't very hangover-y but it was still pretty damned yummy. I roasted a chicken, made some risotto with broccoli and ate that with some rolls that Kirk had baked the night before. Booze-wise we drank a bottle of wine, had some chocolate martinis and topped it off with some sparkling wine at midnight. We've basically spent the last few days holed up in our little home, eating and lounging, only venturing out to walk the dog. It's been sweet and romantic and TOTALLY lazy. Now, I'm trying to decide if I was really serious when I said I was going to work out today. My last day off before going back to work.

Anyway, while I mull that over, here is a list of things of stuff I'd like to do (in no particular order) in 2005:

  • paint SOMETHING every day
  • eat more fruits and veggies
  • spend more time outside of my home
  • weight train 2 days a week
  • take some other kind of class involving physical exertion 1 day a week
  • pay off as much of our line of credit as possible
  • renovate the bathroom
  • plan my wedding and successfully get married without turning into bridezilla
  • spend time with my baby cousins, so I'll have some idea of what I'm in for when Kirk and I decide to have kids
  • avoid buying prepared foods
  • actually go on vacation at least once a year. somewhere. anywhere.
  • make the cottage usable during the winter
  • read at least 1-2 books a month
  • drive less
  • use public transit
  • ride my bike
  • get a real website together to properly showcase my artwork
  • listen to more independant music
  • go see more live music
  • blog every day
  • see more art that isn't my own
  • more networking to promote myself as an artist
  • get back into volunteering
  • do more life drawing
  • re-paint our whole apartment
  • be more romantic
  • keep a journal
  • take more photos
  • often tell my friends and family how much I love them and appreciate them
  • clean out The Moo's litter box every day
  • somehow get my mitts on a digital SLR camera - preferably a Nikon D70 or a Nikon Coolpix 8800
  • learn to play poker

That's it for now. So I've decided to not go workout today. I called Marc (my awesome personal trainer brother) and we'll start our new routine next weekend.

For this coming week I have:

  • a mostly final list of 110 invitees
  • 2 massive wedding dress sales to attend this week
  • 2 appoinments for wedding ceremony & reception venues
  • 2 wedding trade shows that I'm contemplating attending
