So I requested to work from home today after being away from the office since December 20th. Given how much trouble I had just getting from my garage to the Jewel down the street, it appears to have been the correct call.
I'm not a big New Year's Resolution kind of person. One of the few shining moments from my mid-twenties was the ongoing resolution to be in a better place each year. Be it physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually (I'm not sure if there really is a distinction among some of those,but why not).
So then resolutions in no particular order.
Effort to learn Polish: I plan to use my Rosetta Stone software for 1 hour/lesson per day when I WFH. I bought the software in 2009 thinking I would use it to finally learn Polish. It had a six month money back guarantee but I didn't execute the guarantee because it was my lack of effort that prevented me from learning the language of my ancestors.
Facebook Posting: It occurred to me a couple weeks ago. What if you made a post and then went about your day, only to end up....dead. That post would be the last communication from you to your friends, acquaintances and/or whomever you connect with on Social Media. So while I'll concede that it is probably impossible to always post meaningful, gracious posts, I do resolve to attempt to post each status update as if it were my last.
Health Front: Nightingale and I need to lose some weight. Therefore we are going to reduce/diminish our biggest source of calories: alcohol. We need to drink less and workout more. I did manage to run 702 miles last year which works out to about 60 miles a month. It should be reasonable to do the same thing this year, perhaps increasing the mileage ever so slightly.
Run another Marathon: So I really would like to run another marathon this year for no better reason than it's about time that I increment Number_of_Marathons from 22 to 23. I'm just uncertain how the knees will hold up and if I can make the time to adequately train. I'd only want to run one if I had a reasonable chance of doing well instead of the run/walk I did for Detroit.
I'd also like it to be a marathon I haven't done before and somewhere that would be a nice vacation destination for Nightingale and perhaps others. But some of my runner friends are considering races we've done before so those are on the table too.
