The 2011 Bandwagon

What are your hopes for 2011? Here are mine:

  1. Work less. Spend more time with my family. Working from home doesn’t equate to being able to spend more time with the ones you love. It also means maximizing work time so that it’s all done in the most timely fashion. So, less navel-gazing while working & more working = more time with the dudes. Simple enough, right?
  2. More time reading & writing. I figure the more I read, the better writer I become. I want to write less “OMG”s and “LOL”s and more things that are meaningful. Once again, simple enough…
  3. Cook more meals at home.
  4. Buy from the farmer’s market as much as possible.
  5. Go on walks. We live 1 block from a sweet walking trail. It’s so easy…
  6. More time with real folks, less time engaged in cyber-space. I want “My Two Sons” to flourish this year, but I need to spend less time on Facebook. Don’t we all? Time suck. Now that we’re closer to family & friends, this shouldn’t be hard to do. I may need some accountability. I deleted my Twitter last year, but I want to keep Facebook. Perhaps check it once a day? When I post my link to my new blog post?
  7. Be a great wife & mom. My patience and kindness took a major hit in 2010. I don’t like it. I want to be different. I also think this is related to #6.

Tell me what your wishing for this year…

About Laura

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." -e.e. cummings

    I've never been big into FB so it's not as much of a timesuck for me but I understand what you mean. Reprioritizing is definitely a goal for me this year, too.

    And I want to get up to KC to visit this friend…

  2. freak yeah, naomi! let's do it soon…we could even meet in topeka.

    “TOPEKA!”

  3. I need to spend less time online too. I want to blog each day, but I am over facebook. I just don't want to be that connected to people if I'm not ACTUALLY connected to them in my reality.

    We should phone chat more and IM less. That's my friendship resolution for you and I.

    And I'm with you on the lol's and omg's. I. just. can't. stop.

What's the Story, Morning Glory?
