Well, like many people, much of my resolutions for 2010 didn't get achieved (trying not to use the word 'failure' here).
Okay, I did spend a lot more time with my dyepot as planned. Probably spent more time with my carder than the previous year, but still not as much as I had hoped.
As I mentioned, I don't want to use the 'F-' word here (...Failure...not the other one!). So I can be proud of many of the other things that I accomplished this year...things that I didn't consider part of my grand scheme on Dec 31, 2009.
I spent more time writing.
I read more.
I got rid of some debt.
I got rid of time commitments that didn't net me personal enjoyment.
I found a spot and made a great family getaway place to spend summer days.
I spent more time cheering and feeling Canadian pride - sparked by the incredible 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Spent more time with my camera.
Used less electricity and less gas for the car. (Yes, the environment is always on my mind, but the rising prices of electricity and gas force us all to be more mindful of how we do things.)
I caught comedian Ron James' New Years Eve special. At the end, he was joined by Canadian musicians Kim Mitchell and Ed Robertson (Bare Naked Ladies) to sing a song called 'Why Pretend?'. It's a funny song about the real outcomes of most of our well-intentioned New Year's resolutions.
So, in that spirit...I'm NOT making any resolutions for 2011.
