Again into the Fray

I don't even know what the title means. I guess into the fray of blogging.

Anyway, another year has begun...2010. Sounds so futuristic. I remember being a little kid thinking 2000 was so far away, but here I am living in the future.

Wyatt got his ear tubes last month, so we've been antibiotic free for almost 40 days now! He is feeling a lot better now and seems to be talking a lot more...although it is his patented form of Ewok and Vietnamese. Although he has always had a pleasant disposition, he is just really happy right now. He must have had a lot of discomfort with his ears for quite some time -- constant pain for months.

Owen is Owen -- funny, stubborn and wickedly smart. He has a steel trap memory and recalls minute details of sights and conversations from months ago. He obviously gets the memory from his mother, because it is a good day if I remember what I had for breakfast this morning (oatmeal!)

Here are some things I hope to accomplish this year:

  1. Lose 25 pounds. Yeah, original I know...
  2. I would like to run a mile. Silly, but I haven't really done that yet. I always walked it in high school
  3. Become a flexitarian. I'm not sure if I would miss meat or not, but I have already started to cut back on the meat intake.
  4. I would really like to get up to Pittsburgh for one more Penguins game in the Mellon Arena, but it's probably cost prohibitive at this point. Everyone and their brother will be doing that this Spring, and there are only a handful (less than 20) games left.
  5. Bake my own bread. I miss making bread and cookies -- why do I only do that during the holidays? I have a great whole wheat bread recipe, but it takes 12-24 hours to proof -- so I have to plan ahead
Five accomplishments is enough for now.
