Dave!Christmas is such a weird holiday. All this drama build-up to one day... then, just like that, it's all over and you're expected to return to Real Life. I worked for a little while before I drove home yesterday. Then worked a little in the office once I got back. Then today I only worked a half-day. So I guess I'm kinda easing my way back into Real Life.

What I'd like to do is ease my way into a new tattoo so I have some fresh ink for 2019... but my artist is in San Francisco,* so that will have to wait a bit.

Instead I've decided to set my top ten goals for 2019...

  1. Pay off my Black Friday purchases so I'm out of credit card debt (this will happen once I get my tax refund).
  2. Exercise. Nothing extreme... just move more.
  3. Develop a pizza recipe I like so I can stop buying frozen garbage.
  4. Finish my photo wall.
  5. Set up my wood shop as early as possible this Spring so I can get to work on refacing my cabinetry and remodeling kitchen.
  6. See if I can get my pergola framed out and find a way to extend the catio.
  7. Come up with a remodel plan for my laundry room.
  8. Play with my cats more.
  9. Travel someplace interesting.
  10. Get a new tattoo.

That aught to keep me busy. Assuming I can manage to live through 2019.

*For which I'm thankful. If my tattoo artist was local, I'd be covered in ink and broke.
