NEW YEAR POST

OMG! It's 2008! My 20 year high school reunion happens this year. I'm so old and gray and aging. At least I have true love with Elias and lovely friends and family members.

PREDICTIONS FOR WHAT'S IN AND WHAT'S OUT

IN
  • Eating in and home cooking.
  • Chinese exercise techniques like Qigong and Tai Chi.
  • Dogs (always in style).
  • Scrabble (again, but now on line).
  • Recycling and composting.
  • Safe seafood.
  • Dressing down.

OUT
  • Eating out for entertainment.
  • Bars (except when you have to go to watch basketball playoffs because you don't have cable).
  • Styrofoam.
  • Spending money on getting your nails did.
  • I read that stainless steel everything in the kitchen is out (but it matters not for me the renter of homes with ever-outdated kitchens).
  • Dressing up.

RESOLUTIONS FOR ME
  • Stop complaining about how old and aged I feel. Daily exercise might help. So will Qigong or Tai Chi, right?
  • Save money so we can have a kick ass wedding. This will require putting money away, eating out less often, and not running to the vet every time our dogs sniffle.
  • Eat better. I really liked this post at Serious Eats about eating better. Mainly, I plan to eat smaller portions and more plants.
  • Watching less TV will be easy because we're now cable/dish-less. (I'm bummed that I have no place to watch The Wire. Either Sacha and Juan need to get us a hook up or Anna has to find a boyfriend with HBO before January 6th.).
  • I'm carrying over one from last year: get out more to see plays and have other high culture experiences. Again, the no cable/dish will help.
  • Post more regularly.

You don't need a lot of money to have a super duper wedding. I just have two regrets about my own wedding. I should have gone to a spa before the wedding instead of stressing about it the day of and the second is to have dancing at the reception. I say save your money for the house and wait ten years to splurge on your vow renewal with your kids and pets surrounding you.

I was just at Ukiahi's Class of 87 thing. You know how you didn't go to pep rallies? Continue following that muse.
