New Years Resolutions

In no specific order:

  • REAL MAIL... bring it back.
  • finish the kitchen remodel
  • get back to Scotland for a wee holiday
  • visit Dave P in Seattle
  • get down to New Orleans to see Graham (as well as Brett (ex fiance) & his whole family... 'cause we're wacky enough to still love each other's family... even though we broke up in 2001)
  • visit Chicago to see much loved & missed  friends
  • find a way to make living on the Vineyard not suck so hard
  • learn to like coffee (ugh... I'll be breaking that one)
  • learn to knit something other than scarves and pot holders
  • paint more (pictures, not walls!)
  • make more time for writing
  • try not to lose my mind when they finally reveal what the hell has been happening on LOST
  • finish painting the entire house, bedrooms, living room, hallway...
  • get rid of the popcorn ceilings
  • fix up the yard (back and front)
  • new decking on deck
  • clean out the basement
  • learn to play guitar... acoustic
  • twice a month pedicures
  • get off the island at least once a month, even if it's just to get off the island
  • get down to NYC more often to see friends in NYC/CT/NJ
  • try to read something by Faulkner I don't hate (pretty much impossible)
  • figure out  the winning lottery numbers in time to win the MEGA Millions
  • spend more time with my brother Christopher
  • hang out more with my "brotha' from anotha' motha'" Chris L
  • meet Paris Hilton and ask her for any shoes she doesn't want (what? she wears the same size shoe as me!... you know she's got some suhweet shoes!)
  • retain and maintain the same resolution I've had for the past few years  "If there are people you can live without... then do so."
This is just a start.... my list will be a mile long by New Years Eve........and like most things in my life... this is totally backwards... 'cause next up is my Christmas list (the one I'd never give anyone since it's all stuff I'd never expect someone to get me anyway...)
