I'm ready to announce my first resolution for 2009.
Yes, I realize it's January 16th, but give me a slight break -- I was out of the country for the first 12 days of the year.
Instead of making a long list of things I will break at the beginning of the year, I'm taking a baby steps approach and adding on one resolution each month. By the end of the year I should have 12 resolutions that I'm keeping.
January's resolution may sound simple, but it's harder than you think. I was spoiled with a dishwasher for a couple of years and about 18 months ago went back to the good ol' sink'n'scrubber. While I don't mind doing by hand, I also don't mind letting them pile up in the sink.
Thus, January's resolution is: Don't go to bed with dishes in the sink.
I'll be adding February's resolution in a more timely manner, promise.
Also, as you may recall I issued myself three Milwaukee Challenges toward the end of last year.
I realize to stay on track I need to start tackling some of those this weekend.
There's nothing better than killing two birds with one stone, right? For the library challenge, I am going to start with the East Side location and then head to Ss. Peter and Paul for their 5 p.m. mass to meet my "tour Milwaukee's churches" challenge.
As for the transit portion of the challenge, I think on Sunday I will tackle one of the routes out of the Downtown Transit Center to simplify the round-trip.
I will keep you posted.
