12/22/2021 New Year’s Resolutions   Leave a comment

It’s time for me to switch from my Christmas preparations since it’s almost here, to my annual prep for New Year’s. Since I’m planning to abandon the blog for a few days over each holiday, (24-26 Dec & 31-02 Jan), I thought getting my New Year’s resolutions posted early made a lot of sense. I enjoy making them every year but almost never live up to my own expectations. The important thing is to keep trying. There’s the challenge for you.

“New Year’s Day now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.” —Mark Twain

  • Read a minimum of 50 books this year.
  • Spend more quality time with the grandchildren.
  • For the third year in a row (failed three times), I won’t walk naked near the front picture window. It freaks out the bicyclists, joggers and neighbors.
  • Drink less than last year but more than next year.
  • Complete the Recipe/Photo book I’ve been working on for years.

“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.” —Bill Vaughn

  • Keep the F-bombs to less than ten per day.
  • Spend less than $50.00 a month at Dunkin Donuts.
  • Lose 20 pounds of ugly fat.
  • Complete at least five new paintings.
  • Be a kinder and gentler pet owner. The cat requested this one.

“New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.” —James Agate

Those are my ten official resolutions for 2022. Although as I was surfing the net earlier today, I discovered two more which I’m unofficially adding to my list. 

11. I will not act my age.

12. I will not sit in my living room all day in my pajamas. Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom.

“I’m a little bit older, a little bit wiser, a little bit rounder, but still none the wiser.” —Robert Paul
