I am not a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. I feel they are made to be broken. To set me up to fail. I usually make mid-January birthday resolutions instead. Don’t ask me why, they work better.
However, this year, this year I shall overcome my fear of NYRs! In fact, I’m posting some right now. If I don’t achieve them, you can light me on fire. Okay, just my pants. While I’m not wearing them. Preferably when I’m nowhere near them. Like, they are outside and I’m inside. Like, I’ve taken them to the dump and returned home already. Like, you can light them on fire at the dump. Like?
Just don’t be stalkerish about it.
Cindy’s 2013 New Year’s Resolutions
#1 Finish my Galapagos travel posts. Before I go somewhere else.
#2 Sort through and shred the nine file storage boxes full of documents from my writing “career” that have been sitting in my office for the last 18 months. Don’t break the shredder this time. Remember to oil it evey 20 minutes. If I break it again, burn the frickin’ boxes without sorting them.
#3 Don’t dig ONE more file box of old documents out of crawlspace until 2014 minimum. I don’t care if it says, “Shred in 2007″ on it.
#4 Put pictures from Peru trip into photo albums. I am only three years behind this one. Three years behind on photo albums is pretty darn good, wouldn’t you agree?
#5 Think about creating photo albums from Galapagos. Only THINK about it. Don’t actually do it. I don’t want to get a reputation as an overachiever!
#6 If I must, put G.I. pictures on nice big digital frame instead.
#7 Postpone re-hanging pictures in living room following the painting that ended a month ago as long as humanly possible.
#8 Do the laundry twice without complaining.
#9 Eat two more chocolate bars per month.
#10 Make plans to paint the hallway, the bedroom, the wainscoting, the office, and don’t follow through on them.
#11 Don’t fall through big hole in sundeck—same sundeck husband keeps promising to rebuild “this year.”
#12 Stop buying salt ‘n vinegar chips every other Tuesday. Change to Wednesdays instead.
#13 Become a mommy-in-law!!! Hip-hip-hooree!
Do you have any NYRs?
