two oh one one.

Believe me, I recognize how cliche it is that I'm finally writing again during the first week of January.  

Disclaimer:  This is NOT due to a lame New Year's resolution.

However, I am coincidentally back to blogging thanks to the mister.  It's actually amazing how torturous it can be to go months without wi-fi.  Yes....I realize how nerdy that sounds.
So, in order to embrace the cliche....let's talk resolutions.

As I've said before, I'm not one to make resolutions just because it's the start of a new year.  I am, however, a goal setter.  My goals for this year?  Well, besides the ever so popular "workout until my eyes bleed & swear off all solid foods until I lose 452 lbs" resolution, I have a few more attainable goals.

Read more books.  -- I actually love to read.  Unfortunately, there is a part of me that never makes time to sit down and enjoy a good book.  Shameful, I know.  I have a stack next my bed just waiting to be read...and I will do just that. 
Improve my guitar chops. -- Yeah, I've been playing around for years.  I think it's about time that improve on my theory and all-around skills.  Actually, I started my first official "lesson" yesterday.  This time next year I will be wielding the skills comparable to Rodrigo y Gabriela.  Not sure how good that is?  Check them out here.
Become a "super cleaning fairy." -- Yes, I am OCD.  Although I enjoy organizing and keeping my house clean, I want to create a schedule for my "chores" and stick with it.  I see it more as time management.  How exciting.

I usually just stick to three goals each year.  Seems realistic & attainable. We'll just have to wait and see how it all works out.   I will, however, be sure to blog my little heart out as long as I have wi-fi here in the Dodd house.  

Here's to 2011! :]
