Default New Years Resolutions v. 2008

Alrighty everyone, let's have at it.

What is your resolution for the year 2008?

I have a few this year, the most important, #1 save money, #2 buy a house, #3 figure out a way to save money after we buy a house

I stopped the "lose weight" resolution years ago, with 1 child and 1 on the way plus buying a new house... I doubt i'll be able to eat like i do now, plus this year is my year to travel for work, so i'm sure the constant traveling will take it's toll on me.

Mine are pretty typical. Exercise more, eat better, try to be a better husband and father.

As for brewing resolutions - get a BarleyCrusher, buy bulk grain, brew 40+ batches this year, brew at least 15 different styles, brew 5 styles that I've never done before.

Track all brewing purchases in excel and in 12 months determine my cost per bottle.

Everyone should try this one even if just for ****s and giggles. Some of you may need to hide the file from you SWMBOs.

1. Take better care of myself (go from 0 to at least 2 hrs of cardio a week)
2. Loose some weight, eat better
3. Be a better husband/father (like previous posters said, there's always room to improve)
4. Be thankful for everything, since you never know what tomorrow may bring
5. Brew at least once a month
