And welcome to the new blog. It's New Year's Day, 2007, and it seems appropriate to launch the new blog today, even though a lot of the content isn't, ahem, done yet.
My resolutions for 2007:
KNIT FROM THE STASH. I inventoried the stash yesterday. I do not need to buy yarn for a long time. Today I plan to spend some time (if it rains as predicted) matching stash yarn to stash patterns, and then I will have A List of Future Projects!
EXERCISE EVERY DAY. Yes, really. I have an elliptical trainer and a yoga mat and free weights and zero excuses. My rude awakening came a few months ago when our office went bowling and my knees and back showed every minute of my 48 years. I need to get my weight down and my fitness level up, at this stage of my life it's not optional. I do not want to deteriorate like this.
SLEEP, WATER, VITAMINS. You know the drill.
MANICURES. My nails will not be unkempt. I accept the fact that I cannot function with long nails, I can only admire them on others, but I can at least keep my own short nails polished in something pale and flattering.
It all comes down to priorities, and my overriding resolution for 2007 is to make myself a priority. I have a bad case of Good Girl Syndrome, and Caregiveritis, and I worry about everything and everybody, from work projects to my elderly mother down to and including a dirty look from the cat when the litterbox is less than fresh as a daisy.
Oh, and my other resolution? Drink more champagne. And a few pieces of really good chocolate are good for the heart.
January's horoscope Sounds good to me.
