One thing I want to do is honor our veterans at our church cemetery in December - Wreaths Across America. Should take me a year to get it organized - finding out who served etc.

Not buy any clothes or shoes. Good thing I have shoes and clothes still in boxes and with tags - lol

Cut back on food waste. Not that it goes in the trash, goes to the wildlife and compost garden.

Start exercising again

3 more months of work !!!!! Yay
I will be retired by April (on March 23rd I'm fully vested in my latest retirement 403b)


I have a lot of plans but my latest is to try a Space A military hop to wherever it may take me (well maybe not the middle east)

No big changes here, another year older.
A continuation of 2018.

Would be glad if the condition of the world improved and no one starved to death.

It could be anything you'd like to share, goals, plans vacations, moving, or just staying alive.

Our plans will depend on if our financial situation turns around for 2019, this year was devastating.

Other wise it will be to keep on keeping on....

So what are your plans for the new year?

Carry on exploring our new state
Hike as much as possible
Swim as much as possible
Pull together at least 20 pieces of work and find somewhere to exhibit it

I’m patching up what’s fixable, and raging against the machine.

I am taking Deep Water Running Class, followed by Water Fitness Class every Wednesdays and Thursdays.

I will volunteer facilitate English Conversation Class on Tuesdays.

I am taking a course "Introduction to Theatre Arts" at Community College.

I plan to lose 60 pounds by June. Again.

No vacations; as I went on 6 vacations this year; and just got back from a month in Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.

For 2019 I plan on brokering world peace, eliminating world hunger and ending global warming. Not sure what I will do from February to the end of the year

Now that it's here...

I need to do a much better job of taking care of myself. Over the past month, I've really let things fall to pieces with 50+ hour weeks, a girlfriend that doesn't carry her weight, heavy drinking, lack of sleep, low activity, etc. I have a sleep app on my Apple Watch that tracks sleep, and it's been all to hell since the week before Christmas.

It seems a lot of your posts mention your girlfriend being a drag on your life. Might want to make some changes starting there. Not my place to advise you but I think you already know the problem and solution.
