Resolved: 2013

Last year's Resolutions pattern was one of my very favorite parts of the year. I loved the variety and the challenge of it. Plus everything was quite manageable. (Though I didn't succeed in every goal...)

So I'm doing it again!

Here's the rundown for 2013:

January: Finish typing Grandpa Fugal's mission letters. (I'd like to say "and get the printed, bound and presented to him", but I'm afraid I'll be typing the last word of the last letter on January 31st at 11:59pm.....that's sorta my style. And I'd rather be in my office typing at 11:59pm than at Kinkos at 11:59pm.)
February: Attend a weekly exercise class (yoga? cycling? masters swimming? who knows.)
March: Fast with a purpose 4 times (I think I already know the purpose, but that's a good 2 months from now and a lot can change...)
April: A date a week. We're doing the Date of the Month Club again this year, but for my birthday month I'm stepping it up.
May: Run (jog, whatever...) 3 days/week.
June: Find and register for a class that interests me. (cooking! dancing! yoga! communication! computers! the possibilities are endless.) 
July: Go somewhere new and exciting and filled with adventure.
August: Find both ends of Murdock Trail (In my head this is a long bike ride....but the truth is I don't even know how long it is....it might be different from that.)
September: Make 10 brand new to us meals.
October: Write. Answer at least 10 of those "personal history" questions. (I assume this will be on the blog....something to look forward to) 
November: Sew something. Anything.
December: Organize and carry out a service project that will require more than just my efforts. (Church humanitarian something? Neighbors? Friends? Family? Blog friends - Are you guys charitable?)

I'm curious, what are your plans for the new year?


  1. I love your resolution pattern. I almost want to try it but haven't even given a thought about twelve things I could do for a month... Maybe I'll give that some thought this week if I'm not too busy thinking about other things. :)

    1. Oooh I hope you do! And if so, I assume I'll get to read about it. :)

  2. Great ideas! and I love the way you are carrying them out.

  3. I totally forgot how much I loved this idea when you did it last year. I'm currently working on my monthly ideas, too! Thanks for sharing. (Also: I may or may not be stealing some of your resolutions from this year/last year. What can I say, you are just too amazing!)

  4. I'm trying to copy you :D The tricky part for me is to not think of it as building on top of each other and then getting overwhelmed. I seriously need to work on the fasting goal too, you have good ideas!

  5. I honestly didn't even come up with anything. I completely forgot until Kevin brought it up the other day. Oops. I'll have to put on my thinking cap I guess. :)
