Two resolutions for the coming year. First, I resolve to work on at least one home improvement project each weekend this year. I did this in 2001, and got a lot accomplished until about August, when I managed to get out of the habit.

Unfortunately, all the progress stopped because of the respiratory infection I picked up in November. Lost six weeks of volleyball, and pretty much stopped taking walks. That changes tomorrow night with the first volleyball session of the new year.
