HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
Yay!! We survived 2007! And by "we", I mean that I managed to not reduce the world's population by three! (Coach, Jock and Bug!)
Its that time when everyone decides to make changes in their lives. It is assumed for the better. Imagine how healthier the planet would be if everyone who resolved to lose weight, actually did. Or how many new books would be read if everyone actually read what they resolved to read? How many old friends would we make contact with again? How many new friends would we make? How many parents would stop cursing, how many yards and gardens would get weeded regularly, and how much less soda and more water would be consumed?
Or maybe those are just the resolutions that have been broken in my house over the years.
Anyway, in the spirit of the New Year, here is my list of resolutions for 2008. I've tried to keep them realistic and obtainable, while pushing myself to be a better person.
...... to close more car doors with my feet.
...... to get my glasses an updated prescription.
...... to buy more socks so I can do less laundry.
...... to throw away all my scales.
...... to do one less load of dishes a day, freeing up more playtime with my kids.
...... to learn how to operate the XBox control paddles, so I can maybe play a game or two with one of the three testosterone containers in my household.
...... to go to bed a little earlier each night for more snuggle time with my Coach.
...... to hug my kids at least one more time each day.
...... to eat more chocolate.
...... to dance more with my vacuum.
...... to dance more with my sons.
...... to sing just a little louder in the car.
...... to look in the mirror each day and find something new to like about myself.
...... to appreciate myself more so my family follows my example.
...... to find ways to get my kids to tell me they love me in public.
...... to tell my kids I love them in public.
...... to tell my kids more often how much I love them no matter where we are.
...... to call my parents and my brothers more often, even if they never call me first.
...... to learn to make a good spaghetti sauce from scratch so I can break the Ragu habit.
...... to eat more chocolate (no... not a duplicate resolution..... just eating more chocolate!)
Happy New Year everyone! May 2008 bring you all the happiness you might have missed in 2007, and not repeat any of the sorrows you passed through along the way!
