What I want in 2023

December 31, 2022

It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m watching Svengoolie (don’t ask) with WM and Murphy with a belly full of (slightly stale) Christmas cookies and a heart full of warmth. It was a good year, the best this decade. 😉 What do I want 2023 to bring? Let’s manifest!

Kim and WM, in Lego form.
Lego WM and Lego me wish you a Happy New Year from the balcony of our Lego castle.

At Home:
I would love to have a new back patio poured because ours is crooked and cracked and I trip on it at least once a week in the summer. But I think we’re going to get the driveway extended first to fit the three cars. And I want my garden to be ABUNDANT. I didn’t have abundance this year, and I think I’m going to rig up the little plastic greenhouse in the garage a month earlier than usual (February instead of March) so that by the time the frost date passes, I’ll have larger plants ready to go into the ground.

I’m doing good work getting my credit cards paid down and paid off. This year I want to start making extra payments toward our mortgage principal.

Last month I was promoted to Assistant Director, Membership (not Assistant to the Director of Membership), fulfilling one of the three goals I had set for myself in 2022. I’m really excited about the role and I have three goals which for obvious reasons, won’t be blogged about here.

Once a week, at minimum. I’m still on Twitter (don’t look me up there, I’m a menace) and I love it but I should at the very least expand on some of my terrible takes here on my own platform, right?

For My Physical Health:
In 2022 I joined a gym (and then a second one when the first gym closed.) That was my second goal for 2022, by the way. I want to stick with that and build stamina and strength. I want us all to be healthy in 2023 and if we do catch Covid again, I want us to come out unscathed.

For My Mental Health:
Your girl needs some in-person friends. I have always relied on my jobs to create friendships (the downside being they usually wilt when you leave jobs) but without that in-person connection, my social tank is hovering around E. To fix that, I want to take some in-person classes in 2023. Maybe an art class? We’ll see.

For Fun:
I want to travel someplace new, or at the very least someplace I haven’t been to in a while. Maybe it’s time to get back on a cruise? Or maybe not. And learn to juggle. That was my third goal of 2022 which didn’t pan out.

For Everyone:
I want everyone to be safe, loved, and warm.

Happy New Year to all of you who still stop by to read! 🙂
