I can't remember the last time I made any New Year's Resolutions. I'm not sure I ever have. I wasn't going to make any this year either, but I felt inspired to do so. Here they are in no particular order:

1. Lose enough weight to get down to 200lbs.
2. Publish a scientific paper.
3. 100% Home Teaching.
4. Get out of debt (besides mortgage).
5. Complete an online/independent study course.

Sounds like life to me,

Mine aren't quite as ambitious as yours...stand and sit up straight and not slouch, be to bed by 8pm and be cheerful no matter what. Love you, Dan! Good luck. I know you can do all of them if you work on them bit by bit or one at a time. When the paper gets published, I'd like to read it.I'm sure I will learn lots!

About yur profile pix...How did that stone ball get there?

Big Papi said...

The stone ball is naturally forming. It's an iron concretion that frequently forms in certain sandstone beds in the Uinta Basin. That one happened to be particularly large, almost perfectly spherical, and in the awesome little alcove like some giant egg. Faith says it looks fake, but it's totally natural and real.

Good for you! I should do resolutions. But I won't. Maybe next year. All of your goals sound worthwhile and attainable!

I like those! Impressive.

Mama, I am sitting up straight right now because of what you said. :)

Cool egg!
