How did that happen?

Here it is, the last day of 2006. I try to remember not to wish away my days (Oh, I wish it was time to go home, Oh I wish it was Saturday already!) and yet the year sped by and has flown away. I wish I'd taken more video of my son. I wish I'd taken more PICTURES of my son. (I wish I'd made ONE SINGLE ENTRY in his baby book. I suck.) I'm pretty sure I could have been a better wife, and I'm pretty sure I fit knitting into every spare minute I wanted to. I don't think those two things are related.
Anyway, my resolutions are pretty thin this year, and really, I've been thinking about them for a month or so. Here they are, in a very general way.

  • Finish Sonnet and the socks I started for myself.

  • Always have socks on the needles, and actually work on them regularly

  • Learn to spin on my spindle

  • Lose one dress size

  • Take the Bug on an outing once every weekend, instead of indulging my inner hermit

  • Get a savings account and learn to use it!

I think these are attainable goals for the year, so I'm stopping NOW!

Happy New Year, y'all, and if you party tonight, please be very safe. (If you go to bed early like I usually do, don't be too hard on the hungover people tomorrow, no matter how tempting it is to wear a neon orange shirt and speak VERY VERY LOUDLY.)

I'm resolving to learn to use my spindle too.

I'm not sure I'll be able to resist the wearing of neon orange and loud speaking - it's just too much fun :)

The no deadline thing is definitely what the Knitting Goddess wants from me.

Wearing neon orange and talking loudly is the best way to start a new year! That and being sunnily cheery.

Sounds like good resolutions! But that savings account should be funded and forgotten. One of these days, I'll get the knack.

Happy New Year!
