This is my "Things I want to accomplish in 2009" list. I've been doing one for the past few years and I find that it helps me stay focused.

1. Train for triathlons.
2. Compete in at least four triathlons: 2- 70.3 Ironman and at least 2- sprint triathlons.
3. Write in my journal everyday.
4. Continue to keep my financial house in order.
5. Go to Disney World.
6. Go on two backpacking trips, one possibly in Europe.
7. Mend a friendship.
8. Try and figure out some spiritual quandaries I find myself in.
9. Start that photography business.
10. Support Amy while she is in school and then working a nine to fiver.
11. I will not play ANY cheesy holiday music. There's already enough cheesery in the world...

These are really just some things off the top of my head. I’m sure there are more worthy pursuits that will come up, but I can’t think of them right now.
Besides, this list is always open for edits.
It’s my only out…. Well?
It’s not a resolution list.


My Second Post

My second entry...

Looks like this is going to be my lifeboat. Most of my JS friends are here and I like the URL liking doohicky. And that's kind of the way I see this place, not really a life boat, but another ship out to sea. JS was a seaworthy vessel for years, but for whatever reason, it went down by the stern. Now Blogger will be my new ship. ahoy, matey.

So I guess I need to get on with my list of things I want to accomplish in 2009. I'll work on that for my next entry.

Yesterday, the family spent New Years day at my in-laws. I love the country and we spent a lot of our time there riding four-wheelers, exploring, and shooting photos. Too bad we didn't have our camera when we came across a pasture where a cow had JUST had a baby calf. It was awesome. We missed the actual birth but not by more than a half hour. We saw the calf take it's first wobbly steps. A new years baby it was.

On the way home, I got a ticket for 78 in a 65. I hope that doesn't set the pace for the rest of the year...

How is your New Year so far?
