I usually do not make them, but this year I did. I won't bore you with my list, which is not nearly as entertaining as Amber's. But one thing that you will not find on my list: Spend more time on the computer. Which is kind of hilarious because I got a new laptop for Christmas, but that's mainly so Remi can play in the safety of fort kid while I try to get a little work done here and there. I'm usually feeling better, healthier, more productive, etc. the less I am on the computer. You know, instead of blogging about things, doing things. My friend Susan made a comment last Fall that really stuck with me. She said "remember when people used to bake a cake, just to bake a cake, and not to blog about baking a cake." And trust me, she was totally preaching to the choir. Don't get me wrong. I love me some blogs, but I am putting myself on a time limit this year, because I think if one of my friends hears me start one more conversation with "you know, I saw on this blog yesterday....." they might throw something at me.
Portlandia recently made it's way to Netflix instant streaming. We have been watching it a bit. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's like a bad SNL skit. But the very first episode had this scene entitled "Technology Loop" that is hilarious. Here's to avoiding the technology loop this year!
