New year's intentions

While eating our breakfast today, Gord and I were discussing resolutions. He doesn't like them, and I'd prefer something with a little less pressure, like maybe intentions.

I wanted to include Gord in the process, so after some discussion we agreed to 3 things that we would do for 30 days. I read somewhere in blog land last night that it takes 30 days of practice for something to become a habit.
