Happy New Year!

A year ago, I posted these resolutions for 2018, how have I done?  
  • Continue my gym time - mission accomplished 
  • Add a couple of personal days, to at least one of my work trips - did this three times. 
  • Continue to explore what I want to do when I grow up - I am grown up, whatever it is, I am it. 
  • Read 25 books - 70 finished 
  • Create a top 10 list for post retirement - I have four items.  
  • Get the house in Lexington ready to sell and start consolidating the house into the Condo - House sold, stuff in transit. 
  • Plan a real vacation - missed this one.  
  • Reach out to reconnect with family - did this twice this year.   

So For 2019 What Are My Resolutions? 
  • Keep moving, going to the gym 5 times per week. 
  • Plan a two week trip to the Pacific Northwest. (I have a 2 day meeting in Seattle.) 
  • Read 50 books 
  • Start on the condo updates
  • Explore the neighborhood - go out to dinner once a month 
  • Work on the top 10 list for post retirement
  • Daily Blog
