My 2010 Resolutions

As is my tradition, I will know reflect on last year’s resolutions and set new ones for 2010.

Last year, my resolutions were pretty basic. I resolved to get my blood pressure under control, which I accomplished via diet. Last year it was around 160/100, and as of this past Sunday, it was 120/82. And that was while I was sick. So yeah, mission accomplished.

I resolved to have my giant tax bill paid by the end of the year. Well, I paid it back in April. Mission accomplished. I resolved to go to at least 6 non-routine social events with Jenna. I more than accomplished that goal, albeit mostly in the past 4 months. I did prepare harder and make myself more interesting for the class I was teaching. I also decided not to teach again in 2010. 🙂 I also resolved to play outside with my dogs when the weather is nice, which I did.

Five for five. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.

Now for the 2010 resolutions:

1. I will pay off (In addition to my large tax bill) at least $10,000 in debt in 2010.

2. I will not buy things I do not legitimately need.

3. I will not postpone the surgery on my wrist despite my desire to do so.

4. I will only agree to do photo shoots I WANT to do.

5. I will start charging people for photography and web hosting/design enough that I actually make a little bit of money rather than just breaking even. It’s far too much work to do for “free.” (I know all my web customers just had a cold chill run up their spines)

    Just tell me why I had to split a 1200-word post into 2 pieces today and we'll be square.

    Well atleast I had my web site done before you set your 2010 Resolutions. LOL. I guess I will have to wait and see how much I have to spend for hosting after my 1st year. Thanks for a great job on the website. Also, tell me how to pay off my tax bill. That is a tough one.

    No worries, I plan on taking it out on new customers, not current ones! 🙂

    Good for you, completing all your goals! I will pay you for your photos because you’re so good :o) and it’s part of your income.
    Happy New Year!

    And there I was thinking that a goose just walked over my grave! Did I happen to mention that I just blew through another $3,000? I spent half of Christmas Day in the ER, I am such an impulse spender!
