Do we really get a "do-over" every 365 days?

I have a feeling 2009 will be an exciting year. Soon enough husband will be in the home stretch of medical school and we will be considering places to move for residency. I've never lived outside the state of Ohio so, for me, that's exciting.

My top resolution for 2009 is to date my husband. I love our dates and time together and sometimes fun relationshippy stuff gets lost in the crapitty crap chores/errands/money/life stuff. The Today show experts say most New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by the end of January. I say, Screw you Today show. I started cycling as my New Year’s resolution three years ago and, although my thighs haven’t noticed, I’m still doing it! Here are some other things I'd like to do in 2009...

1. Delete my MySpace account

2. Spend way too much money on a fancy brunch

3. Bake an apple pie

4. Register everyday for the HGTV dream home (contest ends 2/19/09)

5. Go to a BINGO night

6. Pay off my Discover card

7. Donate books to a vagina charity

8. Study for the GRE

9. Get an ‘A’ in my biostatistics course

10. See a sports medicine doctor for my knee

11. Organize my CDs

12. Play more Wii

13. Go to a wine tasting

14. Snuggle

19. Wear shimmery lip gloss

20. Have something published

21. Give someone a second chance

22. Dance with my husband

23. Be on time for something

24. Organize my computer area

25. Learn to use iTunes and photo editing software

26. Do 100 push ups

27. Read more books (sTORI Telling) and keep track of them

28. Go on a girls vacation with my friends possibly.to.the.beach

29. Clip coupons

30. Eat more dairy, soy and protein

31. Play ski ball

32. Own a necklace with a sparrow on it

33. Keep a secrete

34. Hand write notes to friends and family

35. Get rid of my mail catalogs

36. Be patient with husband’s schedule

37. Floss more

38. Get a fancy banner for my blog

49. Wean myself off of Us Weekly

I've already done #1, so that's a good start. I have Facebook and two social networks are one too many for me. I'm just not that social.

Tonight is my first biostats class. Wish me luck!

Hi Tam! Mermanda here. I can't believe it took me this long to find your blog. Everytime I clicked on the link in your comments to me, it took me to a blank page that said your profile did not exist. You are offically on my reader now.

I love your list. I have a sparrow necklace and love it. Here's a link to the one I have: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=19485945

I have some other things in common with you too. I want to switch to green cleaning products and get rid of my catalogs! Good luck to us!

Yay Mermanda!

Great necklace, I covet it.

My vegan friend tried all of the eco-cleaning products and said that Method products (sold at Target) work the best. I love when stuff is pre-tested so I'm going with those. They have a minty scented one that I like.
