Almost a month of silence.

Well, we almost reached the month mark without any blog posts. Because we're awesome. But, in our defense, most of that time we were away for holidays and furloughs and everything, so I don't feel that bad.
I've decided that we're going to try and focus less on what we're doing, and more on what we're thinking, reading, etc. Of course, if we travel, we'll talk about it, but that's all we've talked about since summer, and that gets boring to read I think. Hey look, someone we know went somewhere that we haven't been personally! Not exciting.
I'm also hoping Dan blogs more, because my spring semester is going to be some flat out crazy busy. Spring semester is always always faster paced than fall, but this spring I'm teaching again and have a 10 hour/week fellowship in another office in addition to my job. So, yeah. I'm going to be tired.
But, to ease myself back into blogging, I'm going to try to post every day for the rest of January and it will be the month of lists. Just because I like lists. I toyed with the idea of today's post being a list of the other lists I'll write, but decided that ventured too far into the bad place.
How about a general goal type list to go with the New Years Resolution feel to start us off.
Things I'm doing this year
-Visiting a new local attraction every month (January - local beer brewery)
-Learning something new every month (January - how to play chess!)
-Taking my makeup off every night before bed (don't judge - this is harder than it sounds)
-Not acquiring any books until June 1, possibly longer (my "to be read" pile is close to 150...)
-Eating vegetarian one entire week every month
-Ignoring frustration and trying out new ways to exercise until something works for me and doesn't feel like a punishment
-Reading at least 55 books (because last year I read 54)
-Going to the Gorge again if I can
-Continuing to be crunchy
-Video-chatting with Deborah in Australia, skype-ing with anyone who wants to
What are you doing this year?
