    I hereby Resolve to resolve something. Next year.

    Happy New Year. Did you have a good holiday season?

    (Mine was...not so great. Remember how I said I was getting along with my MIL? Well, I think she took that as a challenge. Worst trip to Hellville, ever. Then we all got sick. I spent Christmas Day shaking with fever and the next few days moving from the bed to the couch, leaving a trail of used tissues in my wake. So did the rest of the family, which made it difficult to whine. Or nap.)

    (We'll just have a do-over next year.)

    I hate feeling obliged to make Resolutions, but I also always feel like I should be starting new things or somehow improving myself in January. I think I did pretty well today by not snarking at all the brand-new gym-goers (that will be MIA by February), but I could probably do better.

    I could blog more, for instance.

    What about you? Do you make Resolutions?

    I chose a one inspirational word to focus on. This year is COMPLETE. Complete all those things I started last year...sigh!! Like lose weight and get an art gallery to show my work and stuff like that. Seems like I have been here before!! Ha
    Happy New Year
    Miss your smiling face on Fitness Pal!

    I always make the same resolution: I will not smoke cigars. Success since 1984.

    For myself, I find it best to make teensy tiny resolutions. Like... I will leave my runners where I will see them. Or perhaps, I will go so far as resolving to touch them, or even put them on. Somehow that eventually tricks me into going for a walk. "What the heck, I have my runners on already, may as well go for a stroll." I should probably resolve to keep my brows properly tweezed. They're looking kind of sketchy.

    For the first time in years, I can say that Christmas went good. Not perfect, but good - no cops were called, and all the family got along, for the most part. (That makes it good, right?) New Year's? I ran away to a casino. Didn't really win, as everything that I won, Husband had spent. Oh well.
    I don't make resolutions, as if I make them, I break them. I would be one of those that no longer used the gym in February. (Lucky for me, I already belong to the gym, so that didn't need to be a resolution)

    I can't make resolutions because I have very little resolve. This year I assigned myself missions, which I think sounds much cooler, and may involve wearing a black catsuit and thigh boots.

    I'm resolving to drink more, laugh more and detoxify (which I guess is counter-intuitive to the alcoholic beverages?). Whatever. C'est la vie! Zut alors! (Do you speak French--I never even asked!) Are you coming to the U.S. any time soon? I want to get together!! (That's another resolution--to meet some of my blog loves). Happy 2013 bee-yatch!
