New Year's Resolutions...not yet.

So I was messing around with the feature that sends posts out automatically by e-mail and I think I screwed it up so that it doesn't work. I tried to get them all to be mailed at the same time----and since then not one has gone out.

New Years Day. I feel I can't really do any planning, or do any resolutions, until we figure out what sort of work life I am going to have regarding this broken down back with the Myofascial Chronic Pain Syndrome. When that is all figured out, then I can make some plans for the year. Goals.

For now, let's just see what happens with the back.

Well, maybe just a few goals--assuming my back gets better:

As always, I'd like to camp more; hike more; maybe start running again. Lose weight. Spend some time on the Pacific Crest Trail. I'd like to go to Rushford, Minnesota for my 35th year class reunion (that's getting old). I'd like to travel a little more. Finish this house. Put in a garden. Finally get some fruit trees in. Go fishing. Hike everyday I'm home. Take more hikes in the area. Spend some time in Northwestern California. Write more and write bigger. Take fewer prescription medications. Climb and camp on Sawtooth Lookout. Take Joni backpacking (I think we can pull off some simple trips).

Life happens one day at a time, one week at a time, one month at a time. If you don't plan to do something, it won't get done. So I'd like to plan my weeks better. And I'd like to utilize the Nearing's
4/4/4/ plan: Four hours of personal work; four hours of work on the homestead; four hours of social work a day.

Both Joni and I were interviewed on KZFR for an hour show called "The Point Is". I talked about coyotes and wolves and breaking into National Parks; Joni talked about Fracking. Feedback from two people indicates that the show was a success.

I'm kind of glad to be done with 2013. On with 2014!

  1. Howdy, Allan,
    Saw your reference to Rushford, MN, and the 35th reunion. Janet and I were just chatting about this on Facebook (I've just signed on and I'm learning my way around). I know you live 'way on the other side of the continent; but would you be interested in getting together for an afternoon of catching up, perhaps in July? Check out a post on my Facebook page if you'd like more information. And happy New Year to you and your family! Lisa (Sass) Reese
