If you'll remember a year ago, I shared that I am kind of anti-New Years resolutions. I typically just try to do new things and stretch myself a little bit. Here are a few things I did this year, that I had never done before...
I went to Oklahoma and Texas. (I LOVE Oklahoma City!)
I entered pictures into the county fair.
I started working at a new school with EMH (Educable Mentally Handicapped) special ed. children.
I cooked a ham...twice.
I started wearing contacts.
Our cat had kittens...I'd never seen/or been a part of the experience before. (It's WAY over rated.)
I survived having a flat tire. (I could have died you know!)
I touched an alligator.
I learned a little bit of photo shop...it was only useful for mocking my friends on facebook.
I took classes at the rec center on ceramics and toll painting. I will be doing that again in the future.
That's all I could come up with. I feel like I am missing a few things, but as you can see, my new experiences weren't anything special...just new to me.
This year I am also going to set some resolutions. 3 that I thought of on my own, and 1 that I am stealing from a friend.
My 3 resolutions...
#1 Visit 3 new states.
#2 Make a pumpkin pie from scratch...I'm also going to grow the pumpkin.
#3 is something that I try to do all the time, but I have to recommit every so often...
Never tell my kids no, when I can say yes. Sometimes no just comes out before I even think about it.
My stolen resolution...
Start what I finish. You can read Kate's blog for more information.
I hope to make my 3 states...Illinois, South Dakota and Pennsylvania.
