Traffic ticket #9.
Yes, I'm absolutely serious.
I probably don't have to tell you what our New Year Resolution is this year.
Do you set goals for the New Year? I usually like to set goals that are almost impossible not to achieve, such as:
Strive for mediocrity in all things. (check)
Try not to die. (I'm usually pretty successful at this)
Read lots of blogs. (done)
And since I have no concept of balance, I also tend to set the type of goals that are equally impossible to ever achieve, such as:
Sell our devalued house and move to Mexico. (hmmmm, anyone want to buy our house?)(oh yeah, and anyone know someone in Mexico who wants to hire an American and pay for all of their moving expenses?) (anyone?...)
One of my actual resolutions this year is to spend at least 10 minutes each day writing. Anything. In fact, in an effort to not fail after 6 days, I'm telling myself that even my grocery list counts.
I also resolve to waste a whole lot of time, start projects I never intend to finish, make endless lists, think about how I should be exercising while I'm eating chocolate instead, stay up way too late, have a couple of mommy tantrums, threaten my kids with no intention of following through, and above all else, watch hours upon hours of television. Basically, keep the status quo even more quo. (Thank you Dr. Horrible).
I'm also going to make every recipe in The New Joys of Jello cookbook and blog about it.
( Oh, and speaking of the New Year, all you people who I promised something crafty to a long time ago knew that when I said you'd get it in the mail by Dec 31st, what I actually meant was December 31st plus or minus a few months, right? Good. Glad we had this little talk.)
10 minutes are up.
Next post: this week's grocery list!
