Good Intentions for 2010

The following is a list of resolutions [good intentions I call them] for the New Year. I have never been really good at this [making resolutions nor keeping resolutions] but one of 2009's biggest lessons was DISCIPLINE. So, here goes...
-Consistently go to bed earlier.
-Maintain a strict[er] reading schedule for classes.
-Start and finish my Ecuador scrapbook.
-Spend more time in Scripture and journaling.
-Learn to do something new.
-Exercise 4+ hours a week, eat 1+ salad a day, and drink 64+ ozs. of water a day.
-Give away clothes every time I buy new clothes.
-Rise above the little things.
-Volunteer more.
-Honor the Sabbath (that means no homework on Sunday afternoons).
-Send 1+ encouraging note every week.
-Move somewhere warmer [jk! but seriously, it's only 6 degrees outside!]

Side note: There is a woman who claims to be a psychic on Deal Or No Deal right now, and she just knocked off the million. Does anyone else see the irony in the situation?

and PSS: Note my two new countdown widgets in the sidebar. 123 days until Mozambique and 202 days until Cambodia!

and PSS [am I allowed to do this?]: After a full night of food, friends, and fun, my friend Chariya had her baby on the morning of January 1st. To my knowledge, both mother and son are doing well, and I hope to have a picture soon! [Khmer babies are precious little things!]

Happy new year, Jewel! Your countdowns look exciting. Here's wishing you all the best in 2010.

I'm not sure I understood 'no homework on Sunday afternoons, and just curious - are you a Sabbath keeper?
