My obligitory New Year's resolution post

OK, here's the deal.

I don't believe in making New Year's resolutions.

There! I said it! I won't do it!

Mostly because I don't believe in starting on something where I know I will fail.

Yes, I would like to lose weight. Yes, I would like to be more organized. There are so many areas in my life where I could improve..................

But the simple truth is that there is something that works much better than stating a general goal on January first.

Would you like to know what it is?

A deadline!

Because nothing is more motivating for weight loss than a High School Reunion.

As it turns out, my High School reunion was last year, and I didn't go to it anyway, so by the way I look at it, I can push this weight loss thing back another 3 or 4 years.

Or better yet, I can just forget about the weight loss, have plastic surgery to look like that one really stuck up girl, then go to the reunion and tell everyone that I'm her.

Actually, as far as New Year's resolutions go, if I'm forced to come up with something, I think I might make the same ones that I came up with a few years ago.

1. Shave my legs.
2. Put my ironing board away.
3. Attend more blogger lunches.

Bonus for me, because my ironing board is currently stashed nicely behind the door of the laundry room :)

Happy New Year!!!

I don't make them either. Other than I continue to make the one to judge people more, because I just don't feel like I truly do it justice every year.

I resolve to eat poorly, oversleep and run late most days and clean only when it gets really nasty. I can keep those resolutions. :)
