once-a-month plans
posted by soe 11:10 pm

The beginning of a new year calls for making some new plans and I thought I’d share three of mine with you:

  1. Phone a friend.
    I feel far away from my friends these days, which means I’m not communicating with them enough. So once a month (at a bare minimum) I vow to pick up the phone and reach out.
  2. Go out on the town.
    I think I’d like to go out on more dates and convention suggests that I should invite Rudi along. Seriously, we need to spend time together more consciously (as opposed to sharing space while we both sit in front of the tv). I’m thinking dinner or a movie or a show or dancing once a month. Or brunch, even. I hear couples do those kinds of things… (And, no, stopping at Pete’s for a pizza after picking up a few things at Target will not count.
  3. Lose baggage.
    Rudi and I tend to hold on to too many unimportant things for too long. So each month I’m going to take a box or a bag over to Virginia and leave it at the Goodwill store there.

So that’s it. In 2011, I plan to spend more time and resources on the important relationships in my life and get rid of the stuff that’s weighing it down. Seems about right to me.
