The two hours a week household project work with Jane has gone acceptably well so far. We've made and kept two appointments, and there is now a pile of stuff on the front porch for a charity pick up Monday.
Other plans/resolutions for the coming year: Spend two hours a week on project work for my (our, really; Julie's and my) part of the house, the upstairs, particularly the office. I have several boxes of underground comics to sell, and probably lots of books I could part with.
I want to track my personal finances and the household expenses better.
And read more. I look longingly at all the books double stacked and laid atop each other and even on the floor in front of my to-be-read bookcase (it's a small bookcase, at least). And sometimes I think about all the books I just shelved in with the rest without actually having read. Or the books on topics I'm no longer interested in (paper marbling is the exemplar of that; I never did any actual marbling, but I sure was fascinated in books on the subject. Hah! But can I part with the books? No.)
Actually, in that case, it's more like, I have this set of specialized books that possibly someone might be happy to have. The same applies to all the books I have on polyamory and postmodern sexuality. Or the origins of Christianity. Or physical theatre and circus. Maybe someday I'll be interested in these subjects again.
Anyway, I should at least go through the books and make individual decisions.
This is becoming quite a list, and is why I'm leary of new year's resolutions:
- two hours/week household project with Jane
- two hours/week office and upstairs projects (includes selling comics and sorting through books)
- read more
- track personal money better
- track household expenses better
Note there's no fun stuff there, like "love Julie more every day" or "play with the rats more" or "spend more time with Riley". I think I don't want those to become goals that then become nags or obligations. (Although I do want to do the latter two, and I do the first as a matter of course. ;>)
For photography, I have a lot of process goals, I guess you could call them:
- domain name and gallery website
- cell phone and business license
- portraiture (drag kings and pregnant punks particularly appeal to me, for some reason)
- more walkabouts in areas I wouldn't normally go to.
Making lists makes me impatient to get going on them. hah!
If you are interested in selling those books on polyamory and postmodern sexuality, please do let me know.
Well, they'd more likely go to a charity auction or The Wet Spot, a local sex-positive organization.
happy new year to you and your household, Luke.
Thank you! and the same to you and yours.
