2013 goal list

On the drive to a downtown bar for our winter team party last night, I told Bri I was going to make a list of things I want to accomplish/change/do next year.  Number one, I told her, was to stop having to rush around everywhere.  If I have to rush, I said, I just won't do it.

"You should call that how to continue my path to being an even grumpier old man," Bri said.

Number two, I continued, with nary a pause, would be to slam the door in anyone's face who rings my doorbell and wakes up my baby, when clearly there is a sign on the door that says "Don't ring the doorbell; Don't knock." (true story)

"Yes," Bri said, "that fits right in with the whole on the path to grumpiness theme."

Number 3 will be to not take crap from anyone, including Dear Wife.

"You've said that one before," she laughed, with a twinkle in her eye.

Number 4, since you must ask, is to quit doing low revenue work things, like type these ridiculous blog posts.

Number 5 is to sleep as much as I want.  As long as this does not interfere with rules 1 through 4. 

Number 6 will be to save at least $100 more than we did this year.  This should be an easy goal to accomplish.

Number 7 is to love my wife and my son with all my heart.  This rule trumps all other rules.  No matter what.

Number 8 is to ignore grammar and syntax on all text messages or emails sent from the world's tiniest keypads.

The end of my story and this stupid list.

Aw, even if you are grumpy and curmudgeonly, that (#7) is the sweetest thing I've seen.
