Goals or Resolutions for 2011

It’s that time to throw out what I plan on doing this year. Some are either carry overs from last year and some are on going goals for every year.

Roll overs from last year:
-Get all the rooms on the first floor painted.
-Stay well under 200lbs. (Optional goal is 180lbs.)
-Complete 1 certifications for work.
-Place 1st in a disc golf event.
-Disc golf in a new state. (Likely candidates this year is Massachusetts, Maryland, or Virginia.)

New ones:
-Ride bike more. Not for exercise but more for pleasure.
-Start saving for a Disney trip.
-Go fishing with the kids more.
-Use all my vacation days wisely.
-Insulate 2 of the 3 crawlspaces.
-Replace the ceiling fan.
-Replace the kitchen sink.
-Mount TV on wall and purchase surround sound.
-Decommission one of my servers.
-Pay off student loans and computer.
-Earn Xbox Gamerscore of 10000.

Time to prep to move

About 6 years ago, Sarah and I bought our first home in Allentown. Not our primary choice but we got tired of hunting for a worthwhile home in our range outside of the city. Well, that was 6 years ago. Things have changed. We have one extra kid, both kids are bigger, job is better (title wise), and we need the space. We also need 0 neighbors attached. I’m done with that crap shoot.

We are starting to organize our house which entails throwing out a lot of clutter. Also, there is a bit of handywork that needs to be done so the house is more presentable. If I call you in the next few weeks, I may need help painting or laying some carpet.

Hopefully in May, we will start looking for homes outside of this city and any other city in the LV. Time to go to the out skirts, but not too far out.

Glad our pre-approved mortgage is higher that our first one. This opens so much more choices for a new nest.
