A decade later, as the year odometer prepares to roll over yet again, My thoughts have turned to plans, expectations, and those nasty things called Resolutions.
I mean, seriously: What is it with these year-end To-Do lists, anyway? Do we honestly think that codifying something as an Official Resolution will make it more likely to happen? I contend that if we wanted it to happen, we'd already be working on it.
Accordingly, My resolutions for 2010 are as follows:
- I resolve to measure various parts of my house and go out to purchase sundry tools and building materials, as required.
- I will take Red out for coffee whenever the mood hits us.
- I will write stuff.
- I will pet a cat.
- I will brew some mead, clean My fishtank, and generally carry on with Business as Usual.
- I will do what needs to be done, reasonably close to when it needs to be done, unless circumstances dictate otherwise.
