I want to be super spiritual. You know, a hero of the faith. Maybe I should make a resolution to read my new Bible cover to cover. (I've already lost two weeks of reading time but I could probably make that up.) Yeah, I SHOULD resolve to do that, but will I get it done?
I could vow to keep up with entering receipts on a spreadsheet so tax time 2009 won't be quite so taxing. I COULD do that, but I said I would do that in 2008--I have a whole Rubbermaid tub full of wadded receipts to prove that I'm not too good at keeping that resolution either.
I'd like to lose at least 25 pounds. HA HA HA ha ha, ho ho ho, HE HE HE! (I'm glad I thought of that one! I needed a good laugh!)
There are plenty of changes I need to make in my life. So many in fact that I can't decide which one to put at the top of my list. I hate New Year's resolutions. Their only real purpose is to remind me of just how big a disappointment I am to myself.
I admire people who can make a resolution and stick to it.
Here is a list of things I think I could resolve to do in 2009 and be successful.
1. Lose at least 3 pounds of muscle and gain at least 5 pounds of fat.
2. Waste at least 1 hour a day playing with my DS.
3. Watch too much TV.
4. Go over my 1400 minutes talking to my girls on the phone.
5. Act like my mother OR my father, OR BOTH.
What kind of self-respecting person makes resolutions to do things that happen naturally, without even trying? I've given this whole resolution thing a lot of thought. I finally came up with a good one.
In 2009 I will try my best to be completely truthful ABOUT myself TO myself.
Sounds easy? Maybe you can try it with me. I dare ya!
