New Year, New Resolutions

1. Blog more.
I don't know if you have noticed, but I haven't blogged in like forever. One of my posts, now erased and put in the vault forever, offended someone and I hung up the keyboard. Two lessons: 1) I can't make everyone happy (although I am a born pleaser) and 2) Sometimes it is okay to edit your thoughts as to not ruin relationships. So, if you are reading, I am sorry.

2. Eat Less. Move More
Always one, for everyone, right?

3. Not Kill Lucy Macaroni
We got a puppy, Lucy Macaroni, a Cairn Terrier. I vow not to kill her. This will be a hard one, as she is a puppy, and a little hyper since we changed her food to a natural one, but now that it is written, it will be done. Or not done. Whatever.

4. Less TV.
We don't watch a lot anyway, but watching even less won't hurt, right?

5. Take more pictures
Since we have been married, I think there are like 5 pictures of my sweetie and I. What? So maybe I will snap a few more this year.

6. Read more Books
I do read a lot. My Darling Husband calls me a Nerd. I call my self Well Read and Smart Because I Learn Things From Reading. My friend posts on a website called GoodReads where you can post your impressions and thoughts on books you've read and send them to your friends and fancy schmancy stuff like that. Nerd Heaven. Welcome, and you are welcome for introducing you. Now, people like my sister and her best friend won't have to meet at Barnes and Noble, wander through the stacks and taking turns, pointing out books, and saying "Read It" "Read It" "Read It" (as in the past tense) and they REALLY did that. That is not a joke.

7. Be More Sassy
I know, this is a hard one. But seriously, I started a few days ago by using my Crest White Strips, Professional Strength. A few months ago, I mean, like 4 or 5, I got a 50$ credit at my dentist for referring a friend to them. I used that to buy a 21 day supply of strips, so my teeth could catch up in sassiness. Well, for 4 or 5 months they have been sitting in my bathroom. Why, you ask, when I have the Sassy Tools so close at hand, do I not utilize them? Simply because I don't like stuff on my teeth, and I am glad I waited because I DREAD putting them on. It is the WORST THING EVER. But, the sacrifices we must make.....

That is all for now. That is a LOT to work on. Wish me the Best of Luck.

Oh hooray! I'm glad you're blogging again! I shall now go eat an Idaho Spud in your honor. (And RCH's because she gave them to me...)

Also? Kant and RCH are far too well read and make me sick. What haven't they read? Sheesh.

Yay! I can add you back to my blog roll, right? You're not going to disappear on me again? ;-)
