Damn, did 2008 fly by quickly...seems like just yesterday I started this blog and now we are going pretty strong 7 months and 200+ posts later. I figured I would share some of the New Year's resolutions I am going to try and make for the 2009 year. I do believe it is important to at least to TRY to make yourself better at some point in your life...so why not start fresh with a new year?
1.) Get myself in better shape - I am by no means a tub o' lard. I am 6'2" and just at 238 lbs. I do take cholesterol medicine...but that is it. I really want to get back into running a few miles daily. My resolution is to get serious about getting back to my fighting weight of 212 lbs. and running 2-3 miles a day.
2.) SAVE EVEN MORE money - My wife and I are pretty good with money. We have a mortgage and 2 car payments and no other debt. We are close to paying off her car - THAT WILL BE DONE ASAP, after that we will pay my truck off. I want to have just my mortgage by the end of 2010. NO SHIT, excuses or any other kind of crap...it will be done.
3.) Quit smoking - actually cheated on this one. We were gonna quit in January but said we had enough in October and quit cold turkey...so I am ahead of the game on this one ;)
4.) Prep, prep, prep - my goal this year is to get a few more cases of ammo and a few more cases of MRE's to suppliment what I have already. I also want to implement a rainwater collection system at the house (priority number 1!!!). Lastly I want to pick up a GOOD water filter and a Remington 870 or a Mossberg 500 shotgun.
5.) Because my post on taking things here and there generated so many "Mother Theresa" types I pledge to "steal" even more ketchup and salt packets from all those hard working restauranteurs! Just kidding on that one ;)
REAL #5 - To try an keep blogging as often as I can, to entertain and inform you with the meager knowledge I have on any subject I write about.
Good luck and God Bless in the new year...2009 here we come!!!
...that is all.
