Completed, sort of: Kayak on a regular basis
I didn’t kayak on a regular basis [whatever I meant that to mean], as my goal states, but I kayaked more than I did in 2011, which I consider a success. Plus, I kayaked in Lake Tahoe. I mean come on:
Completed sort of, not really: Drive Kris’ dad’s bug (if he allows) every Saturday it’s 70-85 degrees

Completed: Play cards more

Completed: Drink more expensive wine
