It's 2011 Y'All!

I do have resolutions but I'm not going to tell you what they are. Telling you what they are would mean admitting I have faults and I think we all know I'm not great at that...maybe that should be a resolution? Plus this way when I don't keep them I won't have to tell you that too.

Mostly I just hope that 2011 ends with me having a job since (if all goes according to plan) I will be ending the year with a college degree. So, a job. I should be able to handle that. Right?

I do plan on keeping track of the books I read this year (this should be easy with my brand new kindle!!). I know most of you don't care but I actually really enjoy reading the book lists that others write up (I'm look at you Holly!) because I'm always looking for something to read. Mine should be an interesting mix of the classics - because they are free - and stuff with vampires with some young adult (probably with vampires) thrown in.

I also plan on winning at least one thing from pioneer woman this year. I think this will be the hardest one to keep.

I also plan to cook more this year. I think I was starting to do a little better in 2009 and fell off the wagon a bit in 2010. So watch out Kailey! I'll be bringing meat into the house because I can't live off of fish alone. I took pictures of some recipes in books last time we were at half price books (yes, even at half price I'm not buying the whole book for two recipes) so maybe I'll start with those.

After reading back through this post I think I might also want to look into limiting the number of parenthetical comments I make on my own blog.

Ok just one real one. Kailey I'm going to get through all 9 weeks of couch to 5k so feel free to give me a dirty look if I object to going to the gym.

Yay! Reading and Cooking and Employment and Gyming! Sounds like a great year :) I'll try to help you with the Pioneer Woman goal too when I can . . . I want to be a winner vicariously through you!
And good luck with your "secret resolutions". I'll weasel them out of you before too long. Mwahahahah!

I'm just glad it was easy to figure out that it was you. Otherwise that post from a stranger is mighty creepy.

Especially with the evil laughter . . . I'm a little creeped out already
