It is hard to believe that it is 2010. The last five years have...well...not really gone quickly I guess. But it is still amazing to me that it is 2010. It has been quite a while since I have had anything to say on this blog. I have moved my political commentary to a new blog. My hobby stuff is now of two other blogs. That does not leave much to do here.
I guess I can talk about some personal goals for the new year. Fairly standard stuff I guess. One thing I would like to do this year is update this blog more often. Once a month would be good.
Another goal is to get more exercise. I bought a new bike in September and have been riding fairly regularly since. December kind of messed me up a bit. I want to keep this going and perhaps add in some regular hiking adventures as well. A few fishing trips this year would be very cool.
I would also like to keep up with school. Last fall I took a drawing class at Estrella Mountain Community college. It has been a long time since I have been to school (at least 8 years) and it was strange. I have a good time with the drawing class and I plan to continue taking one class at a time through the duration of the year. Art classes are a new experience for me.
I need to put some time and money into the house. The last couple of years have not been good for me when it come to taking care of the house. The housing market crash and the personal challenges hit hard. It is now time to get this back on track. The first project will be to install the garage door opener my sister got me for Christmas.
Enjoy life. Sounds simple but turns out it can be pretty tough. For a long time I have been just going through the motions and have been fairly detached. The good news is that I have a wonderful family and great friends and they have been a huge help through tough times.
