Well, here it is Sunday morning January 1st. A new year and a new beginning.
A fresh start. Sort of….. Really it’s just another day and it’s only the calendar that says January 1st. For me, it’s just keep on keeping on. I don’t really set new years goals anymore. I just have things I’d like to keep doing and some new things I’d like to try.
We will keep walking every day.
We will keep going to the gym. I’m going 3 days a week and I’d like to add a 4th but it’s not necessarily a goal.
I’m going to do the Uber frugal month with Mrs. Frugalwoods mostly to get a new perspective on how we spend money which generally we don’t spend a lot. But there are things that come up and generally, we’re not really financially ready for. So that’s where we hit the snags and that’s what I want to change.
I hope to have a year of continued good health and that my complete response from the Velcade continues.( It is what it is and I have no delusions about this). It’ll change at some point but I still hope to have a good year. I also hope my husband and 2 children continue to have excellent health.
I am going to try a new recipe a week and follow it to the letter to learn new things.
I read so much that reading books isn’t a goal, maybe not reading so much??? Nah, never. I’m not sure how many books I read in 2016 but I average 2-3 books a week sometimes, so that’s 12 a month so 144 a year. Sounds about right. I’ve enjoyed the blogging for books, it’s fun and I get free books I then give to the library.
We are finishing painting the front room (living room) today. Some trim and window trim. It’s my favorite white, simply white by Benjamin Moore. It is such a great white. This is the last room to paint this year. So it looks nice and fresh and it really needed it. We have a wood stove so that affects the room with smoke when you open the stove or ash that comes out. It turned out that even though moving stuff away from the walls is a lot of work, it was pretty easy to put back together. Less is soooooo much better. I even gave my brother a set of fiesta ware in the light purple that wasn’t my favorite.
last night we had sub sandwiches and watched old movies. We forgot to open the champagne but had a nice BV red.
Well, it’s off to the gym and dinner is a pizza as I had made the dough for Friday, but then we decided to make the Latkes for Hanukkah.
