The list of resolutions and things I’ve sworn (not really) to do in 2018 continues, along with notes about progress, plans, excuses, etc…
26-Attend a seance (this one seems to disturb everyone I mention this to, but I’ve never done this. My belief in ghosts and spirits leans more toward skeptic than believer, but I’ve seen stuff I can’t effectively explain).
27-Meet a Zoroastrian (It’s just one religion I’ve never encountered).
28-Watch the movie “Freaks” (currently unavailable on my streaming services).
29-Sync up “Dark Side of the Moon” with “Wizard of Oz” (This seems like a Pink Floyd fan thing that I should have done ages ago).
30-Start a podcast (just to say I have one).
31-SPARTAN (Train and complete one Spartan race. I tried last year and blew it in training).
32-Triathlon (I did a mini two years ago and it was one of the highlights of my summer).
33-Ballroom dance (If all goes well, I’ll be doing this one in May).
34-Teach my kid to swim (Actually, Emmett sort of knows how, but he needs to improve to do the scout camp he wants to do).
35-Watch the final season of “The Office” (I’ve kind of meant to do this for a while).
36-Visit the Russian Orthodox Monastery (It’s one of the odder places in WV –just unexpected that it would be here, of all places).
37-See Shawnee Park (Reportedly haunted).
38-Go to a Drive-In Movie (I haven’t been to one in years).
39-Visit the Poky Dot (A place known for its ridiculously gigantic ice cream dishes. I love ice cream).
XX40-Perform with a rock n’ roll band (I actually did this February 2. I performed with Rubber Soul during their “With a Little Help For Our Friends” show, which was the realization of a lifelong dream –just to be on a stage with a rock band).
41-Visit the King Tut Drive-in (I hear the peanut butter pie is good).
42-Make booze (I’d like to make whiskey, but would settle for wine).
43-Take an actual, 100 percent vacation (I have trouble with that. I tend to work during my time off).
44-Take a trip by train (I’ve never done that, always wanted to go somewhere by rail).
45-Try snowtubing (It looks like more fun than skiing).
46-Save money to send Emmett to Italy (Students from his school are going. He was asked to come, but money is tight).
47-Hang up Christmas lights (maybe not a lot, but some –the neighbors go nuts with it. I feel left out a little).
