I still have a to do list that's three miles long, but I have hope and faith I may actually get through it someday. And as it stands I'm taking each lazy day as an opportunity to be mildly productive and partially lazy.
Probably watching entirely too much TV of the very worst kind. It's there, it's luminous, and it's frightfully easy to turn it on and let it chatter. I'm afraid to establish too many habits for fear that I'll retain them when school starts again, so I'll watch and rewatch any movie I've already seen, and we've been catching an inordinant amout of wife-swap (which really is the sign that the Western world has gone over the deep end, it really is. I honestly know little bits of my soul are burned away every time I watch it).
I managed to chip a tooth sometime over the holiday (noticed it in full on New Year's Day), and I'm headed to the dentist to fix it tomorrow. It doesn't hurt, which is good. It's not insured, which is very very bad and could quite possibly be terribly expensive. My fingers are crossed.
I sprained my knee walking the dog the other night, derailing my new year's resolution to work a little harder at walks. I've tried to make it up to her with training, but we can only do so much inside the house.
Speaking of resolutions, I'm actually going to write them out this year - it's worth living in hope, right?
- To work up to the point where I'm not walking the dog, I'm taking the dog for a run, by summer.
- To do pushups before I go to bed at night (starting with 5... and adding in when I can)
- To do at least an hour's worth of academic reading a day*
- To do at least an hour's worth of Japanese a day*
- To eat smaller portions, to eat healthier, every day
- To drink at least one 12 oz bottle of water a day (refillable water bottle, of course)
So, despite the fact that I've not kept any of my resolutions completely so far, and despite the fact that the couple of other things under the cut aren't exactly good, I'm in a good mood. The laundry's two loads away from being done, the living room doesn't have a tinder-box-christmas-tree in it, and tomorrow after my dental appointment I don't have any "to dos" that I absolutely have to do.
