Thirteen Things about Interstellar Lass

1. I thought about trying to come up with thirteen resolutions for the year. But I don’t really “do” resolutions, so I figured that was kind of pointless.

2. I have some goals for this year though. So I’ll share those.

3. Lose weight. Yeah, this has been a goal every year since 2003. Sometimes I do better at it than others. I manage to lose it, but some how it always seems to find it’s way back. I’m still below my 2003 starting weight though, so that’s something, right?

4. Run a sub 30-minute 5K. My fastest 5K has been 33:26. So, I’ve got to shave over a minute a mile off my time to do this. I see lots of mile-repeats and Yassos in my near future.

5. Tell Elle and Zed that I love them every day. I think I do this now, but I’m going to start making a point of it. They are growing up so fast!

6. Be a better friend. It was really easy to maintain my friendships when we worked together and we saw each other every day. I think I need to call my friends more often just to see how they’re doing.

7. Get my DIY projects done. I’ve got the list. I know what I want to do, now I just need to get it done!

8. Fix my flower beds. My flowerbeds are U.G.L.Y. I need to do a better job of taking care of them. There’s some bushes out there that just do their thing. They get no attention.

9. OK. that’s all the goals I can think of for now. Well, maybe not spend too much time at work. I was doing well at that, but I’ve been put on a big project that’s taking lots of time. Tuesday I worked from 7 am to 6:30 pm. So, from the time I left my house to the time I got home, it was 12 hours exactly. Yuck.

10. Nick is doing a great job getting his stuff blended into the house. I think I’m pretty laid back, so it’s not a big deal to me having stuff moved around. Except for the cow skull. You can hang it in the garage baby, but not inside. 🙂

11. Elle & Zed went back to school today. Whew. I think breaks are good and all, but dang, the kids needed to go back to school.

12. Texas beat USC in the Rose Bowl! Whoo Hoo! Hook ‘Em Horns!

The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the live long day.
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
You can not get away.
Do not think you can escape them
At night or early in the morn-
The Eyes of Texas are upon you
‘Till Gabriel blows his horn.

13. I’m leaving for Bandera tomorrow! Woo Hoo! 25K here I come. This will be a fun weekend!
