My 2011 Resolutions

So I definitely have some carry-over from 2010:

Be healthy - Continue the morning gym habit and focus on including more fruits and veggies in my diet.

2011 Cookbook Challenge - Once a week, try a new recipe from a cookbook or blog and post it on this website.

Finances - Get that retirement plan in shape

New this year, I want to:

Continue to blog at least three days a week - I am going to try to keep up the six days a week habit, but giving myself a break makes that a lot easier.

Focus on being home - 2010 felt like a year where most of my time was spent travelling across the country and a couple oceans. It was fun and exciting. I am really feeling a pull this year to scale back on travel - at least cross country travel and spend more time exploring what the Tampa Bay area and Florida has to offer. We are even considering buying a tent to check out some of the nearby campsites. I also want to scale back on the scheduling. I tend to schedule our weekends to be pretty full. I want to keep more time open for opportunities that just pop up.

Check out a couple new ball parks - Even with the focus on staying home, I can't wait to see at least a couple more ball parks.

Capture history - One project that has been on my mind is how to capture our family stories. As we get older, I don't want that to get lost. I got a new video camera for my birthday so I am going to try to get my family members to cooperate in telling their stories in front of it at family gatherings this year.

Write another novel - This year I participated National Novel Writing Month and it was fantastic. As you have read here, I actually finished a novel. I would like to write the sequel to that month in 2011.

What about you? Do you have any resolutions this year?
