2013 New Year’s Resolutions


Once again I am at the keyboard laying down the goals and aspirations I have for the next year. Every year I say the same thing that I cannot believe the old one is done and the new one is starting. In less than 1 day I will have to sign and think of writing 2013 for the year.  2012 was an eventful time, but not always so grand.  This year I am quantifying and organizing my goals in the following categories: Health, Spirituality, Knowledge, Work, Education, Home Repairs, Trips, Game Designs, Game Playing, Movies & Entertainment , Computer Life, Car & Lifestyles.  Each entry will have 5 goals from lofty to banal.
