Happy New Year !

It's out with the old and in with the new.

Here's a sneak-peek at my resolution list

  • learn how to make pasta (found a pasta maker at the thrift shop)
  • get the craft area organized @home
  • stop going to the Chinese restaurant at lunch (way too many calories)
  • de-clutter, de-clutter, de-clutter all my workspaces (@home and @ the office)
  • continue to lift up my team @ work
  • continue to lift up my family members
  • minimize: take the approach that less is more
  • have what I love, and love what I have
  • remember what it was like to be an 8-year old and a 13-year old so I can relate to my boys better
  • become more proactive with household duties in order to help my wife and set a good example for my sons
  • teach the boys more life skills. they are never too young to learn
  • tell me wife that I love her more often
  • make lots of items and sell them on Etsy
  • start selling our 'want nots' on eBay (see de-clutter above)
  • compose DAILY blog posts with good quality pictures
  • become more Christ-like
  • stop using 'bad' words
  • start using positive, 'good' words in all my communication
  • drink more water
  • remember to take my multi-vitamin every day
  • eat more fresh fruits and vegetables
  • shop at the co-op grocery store; buy in bulk when it makes sense
I'm sure I could on and on....but I won't.

How is your list coming along?

Hey, you've given yourself a makeover since I was last visiting. I love it.

Just finished my lists today. I really needed to add taking my multivitamin and to quit cussing like a sailor.

Hey Mike,

Sounds like a great list you got going there. I haven't begun a list like this but you've inspired me. Hope the Green for Life book changes yours as much or more as it did mine. =D

What a great list. I especially liked telling your wife you love her. That was very sweet!

Please let me know when you set up the eBay list so I can take a look.

A healthy, happy and prosperous New Year to you and the family! xxoo
