I resolve not to make any resolutions, lol.


I don't do NY resolutions. Instead, I simply reflect on the past year and formulate/verbalize some hopes/dreams for the coming year. Tonight my toast will be simple ... that 2004 be better than 2003.

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.  Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

Well, that's a pretty safe bet, considering all you went through in 2003! Happy New Year!

I like to make mine specific and attainable. For example, for the past few years I've resolved to throw out all the ratty socks and underwear in my drawer and get some new stuff.

I've also resolved to declutter and clean one area of the house every day. I find that with all the regular maintainance housework like dishes ans laundry, I rarely do any deep cleaning and organizing. I made a list of closets, drawers, surfaces, etc. and every day I am going to try to get to one of them, even if it's just clearing a dresser top or something.

I also resolve to stop saying stupid and embarrassing things in front of a particular co-worker! Once we were talking about names and I said I didn't like non-traditional spellings, only to find out later that her daughter is named Sydne. Then, just yesterday, I was talking with a bunch of co-workers about clothes and I said I miss the era of stirrup pants and big sweaters because it was so comfy, even though it's not a flattering look. Yep, she's sitting in the next cubicle wearing stirrups and a big sweater. She's a nice woman and wouldn't hold any of this against me, but I'm mortified!

I prefer to call them *goals and aspirations*. I dont like to make resolutions, lol, I'm never sure if I can be totally resolute by mid year! :o)

These are mine:

health-run a half marathon

family-show more patience towards my dd, remember how hard it is to be a young teen!

Get out with dh alone at least once a month.

Personal-write the novel I have been toying with for the last few years

send my childrens book manuscripts out to at least 20 more publishers

Thats pretty much it!

A new romance does wonders for getting rid of those ratty undies and bras ... he he he.

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.  Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

The standard "quit smoking" and "lose weight". But I also want to try to quit fighting with dh so much. With all my chemical imbalances, sometimes I start fights over stupid little petty things, and I really don't want to chase him away.

I have two that are simple but not easy:


Keep off the 19 pounds I worked so hard to lose.


Try to maintain a polite relationship with my father.


Happy new year to all!

To get rid of the weight I gained back last year after having lost 52 pounds. To exercise more (I'm thinking of ice skating with my boys). To eat healthier.
