This year, I mean it

Besides get no sleep, change a gazillion diapers and all that kind of fun stuff, these are the things I want to do so much this year that I’m committing them to writing. They generally fall in the self, house and work categories, but are in no particular order below.

  • Be more organized – Likely the most amusing resolution on this list to anyone who has seen my desk at home, our basement storage room or our living room post-wedding. If I had just had a system …
  • Pay off more of the bad debt – Made good progress last year, but would be really nice to be done paying for fun had 1999-02.
  • Do a real home inventory – And update our insurance to go with what we really have.
  • Read 50 books in 2010 – Probably the second most amusing goal, particularly to anyone who has ever had a newborn.
  • Return to running – My tentative plan is to begin slowly in June, starting with a to-be-determined 5K, progressing to a short duathlon in July, a 75-mile or century bike ride at the Livestrong Challenge in August, a TBD half-marathon in the early fall, followed by, I hope, after deferring two years straight, completing the Marine Corps Marathon in late October.
  • Improve social media-ness – I’m on Facebook and Twitter, and use Tweetdeck. I’m on GoodReads and Daily Mile (which is on hiatus until April or so for me) I remember every other week or so that I set up my Google Reader and I like it (but need to add more publications I regularly follow to it.) But mostly, I need to be more consistent about using them, about how I use them and learning more about how to use them to my advantage.
