Happy New year!

2004 is past, today starts a new year so I guess that calls for some resolutions... What to do, what to do?

Well, first of all, I'm putting away all the Christmas decorations. Today. Which means climbing on the house roof in the new snow. The tree and all its quickly falling needles is going outside to the curb. All the ribbons and bows and candles and lights are going back into the big cedar chest until next year.

I need to set a routine for going shooting this year. Yesterday Noah & I went to Impact Guns for an hour or two of shooting and we had a very good time. Just like we always have a good time whenever we go shooting. So one of my resolutions is to go shooting with Noah routinely on a schedule we both can count on.

School remains a priority as far as resolutions go, I suppose. Two classes per term without fail until I either graduate or drop from exhaustion. Either way, I've got to stay focused.

I should be skiing, but the boy's not here and Brian's not available and I just don't feel like going up by myself. I also haven't tried snowboarding yet this year, concussions have a way of giving me pause for further exploits without some real, paid training. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow.

I am going to build a new computer this year too. This clunker, while functional, can't last forever. There's not enough memory or processing power to do all the things I like to do, so its gotta be replaced. I think I'm gonna do it like Johhny Cash, bringing it home one piece at a time. Already this morning I dug out another old machine that's been clogging up my laundry room for a couple years hoping that it might at least be a suitable case to start building on. Its not. The dang thing is destined for the landfill-recycling center and I'll gain a bit more room in my laundry room.

Which is another priority this year- cleaning out the laundry room. It has gotten piled up with car books, camping gear, tools that should be in the shop and just general clutter. That cleanup program actually started yesterday.

That's it for now. Maybe more posting later today.
