I have a lot to do in 2023. I'm trying to get my hobby projects at a certain "nearly done" place by the time I turn 50, and I'm 48 on Dec 31st. I'm seriously considering a "Purchase Free '23" to plow through the backlog.
I tried a modified version of that: a few years ago I pledged to only buy painted minis for a year. I lasted about 8 months.... ::)

There is "Dry January" to work towards. I think I heard about it half way through the month this year, but I'm going to try it next year.

I did have a co-worker who was a borderline alcoholic (and I'm not sure which side of the border he was on  :() He used to do a dry February because it was the shortest month. Needless to say, he hated leap years o_o

I think it would be easier to go a whole month not buying minis then going a whole month without a drop of alcohol. Although, since I have been couch bound for the last 3 and a half weeks I have only had 3 cocktails, far less than my usual one a day (2 on Saturday nights).

My goal to hit before the end of the year is to have a model published in a magazine as an actual article not just a guest spot. Unfortunately I lost one of my dogs a few weeks back and it's snowballed into making my poor health flare up and severely limit what I'm able to do hobby wise for the moment.

It did on the other hand use it as motivation to build one of my dream projects. The loss was really unexpected and I was running on auto pilot for a few days. Ended up 3D printing an entire build plate of different weapons to make a field of swords type diorama, along with a figure to put on it. I plan to take some pictures later today and see what people think. It's going to be a nightmare to paint but it will look pretty cool when done.

Sorry to hear about your dog Robosmith, it is always heartbreaking.

Yeah. Always a tough loss for the family.  Good luck on the magazine goal.
