Some of my other goals were to:
- Stand up straight.
A perennial favorite, for good reason. In high school, I was tall, skinny, and had a deep voice. I have been a slumper forever.
- Walk 10,000 steps every day.
I was pretty good at this. I now walk to the gym, the library, the post office, and the bookstore.
- Be a good parent to Teen and Teen’s BFF (who has a variety of parents).
So far, so good.
- Pray more.
Nothing like taking a leap of faith to help with that.
- Spend more time with my mom.
I went home for three long visits. The first time, I was sure she would be dead before the year was out. Now she seems much more healthy. (If you are on statins, or your parents are, and you have horrible muscle pain – go to the doctor!)
This year I want to write even more and write even better books. And I want to do more reading for pleasure - to even put that, as selfish as it is, on my to-do list.
