The best resolutions are the ones you don't feel compelled to put off until an arbitrary date on a calendar.

I'm gonna make stuff.

widower related 

I used to make stuff all the time, so much so that I got an art ed degree.

Then I switched to teaching in a computer lab, and Kelli's health took a down-swing.

I made things a lot less often. I had other things to do (taking care of Kelli) that were more important than arts & crafts, and I could no longer say I was doing it for work.

I didn't realize how much I missed it.

I'm rusty, but I'm glad I've started again. I waited too long.
