The last day.

December 30, 2008


The first step will be digging out the piano.

Well, here we are.  Another year gone, and another one coming up.   I’d say that overall it was a fine year, but then again – they’ve all been pretty good.

I’ve never been one for resolutions, but I’ve often looked back and thought, “Y’know, if I’d just spent a few minutes exercising/practicing piano/playing ukulele/ every day, I’d be pretty healthy/talented/good by now.” This year, though, I’m going to try to put it to the test.  Each Wednesday* I’m going to try to add a new ‘Five minutes a day’ thing to my life and see how it goes.   I’ll let you in on a secret, though – I’m a big quitter.  I also resolve to watch more t.v.

*That’s right, a ‘Old Year’ resolution, not a ‘New Year’.
