I thought of this late yesterday.
I'm going to 'okay' me buying something that a friend or acquaintance has created (i.e.: a book, a CD, a piece of art). I think that goes along with fostering creativity in general. So, rather than have to wait until Jan. 1st to buy a friend's CD, like I did this year, it's in the sanctioned list of expenditures for 2011.
I'm keeping today super short for a few reasons, but one is that it's 8:36pm and I am no where near done the work I need to do before I can exit the building from job number two for the evening.
On a high note, I've got my ticket to Ottawa for Friday, Dec. 31st leaving Toronto at 3:30pm. That will feel great - like sinking into a four hour reading and resting break after a frantic couple and a half days back at work(s).
Looking forward to family time very soon.
P.S.: What are other people's resolutions and plans for New Year's? I'm looking very forward to Fake New Year's tomorrow night. An annual party where you can always get a cab home, and I won't feel like I missed out on friend time by skipping town on Real New Year's.
