What will 2009 bring?

For me, it's bringing a job shift in 4 weeks. Literally packing up my stuff, and shifting to a different work location -- 4 blocks away and a level of government down. Talk about mixed feelings.

But 2009 is also a year of intentions I have set for myself. Would you like to hear them?
  • I will be producing and directing a play. I've decided that I just have to create my own opportunities to direct in this town. (More on that later, as it unfolds.)
  • I am going to get more physically active -- just 'cause it is going to happen. Raincoaster is attempting to share her exercise video fetish with me, by giving me a wealth of DVD workout fromage: Cardio Burlesque, Tahitian Cardio, and Belly Dance with Veils, to name just a few. I also intend on getting into snowshoeing, and back into X-country skiing.
  • I'd like to go camping this summer. We totally missed out this last year, because Metro misunderstood "I don't like setting up in the dark and dining on lukewarm canned stew heated over a tiny burner, shivering" to mean "I don't want to camp ever" so he proceded to fill his weekends with plays, poker and sailing. What this intention really says is that I intend on filling as many weekends this year with activities my husband and I do together.
  • Speaking of activities I'd like to do more of...I want to do more roadtrips, preferably with the hubby. I found this fabulous article on How to Road Trip that includes invaluable rules such as "The driver controls the music" and "No bogarting the Twizzlers"! Reading this just makes me want to go!
Here's a piece of open road from one of our recent day trips:


So what are your intentions for 2009?

Share with us, we'd love to know!

More road trips and camping? I'm good with that.

Particularly if I get to control the tunes.

My main intention for 2009 is to still be here at the end of it.

Everything else will be gravy. :)

Camping? *shudder*

@metro
'tis okay about the tunes. I married you knowing your taste in music!

@az
that's a mighty clear intention -- keep it up! :-)

I plan to eat more fresh veggies, walk more, and remember what Oscar Wilde said: "The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it." Amen!

That's exciting about producing and directing a play. I hope we'll get to hear more about this.

My own goals for 2009 are pretty nebulous. I really need to make some progress towards my degree. But I'd really like to figure out a way to do some sort of volunteer work. And it would be nice to have some sort of vacation that didn't involve the stress of visiting family.
