Resolutions For The New Year

Everyone blogs and writes and states what their New Year's Resolutions are going to be. Nine times out of ten, those resolutions are forgotten long before the underpants from the night before are changed. They are often good intentions going into the making of the resolutions, stop smoking, lose weight, exercise more, eat better, etc.

This year, I want to do something different, I want to take a cue from a friend of mine and make resolutions that are not only going to be fun to keep but fun for others to read as well.

First off, I resolve to LIVE, and I mean live like it's my last year on earth! I want to eat what I want to eat, dance in the grocery store when the song is awesome and sing out loud and not care if I can carry a tune or not. I want to smell flowers when I see one that strikes my fancy. I want to be able to laugh and swing on the swings in the park when not in use by a kid. I will slide and run and play like I'm 10 again.

Secondly, I resolve to perform DRIVE BY COMPLIMENTS! I will stick my head out the window of my car and scream nice things at people on street corners. I will yell compliments at people in parking lots. I'm going to walk up to people in random places and tell them they look good. You know, stuff like “Stripes and Plaids work for YOU! Keep wearing it!”

Third, I resolve to finally go volunteer at our local pet shelter and pet the kitties. I'm going to take toys with me and play with them. Ok, so maybe that's not a resolution that's outlandish, but I consider it to be fun for me and maybe fun for a cat who's scared and doesn't understand why it's in the shelter to begin with.

Fourth, I resolve to let my dog eat my peanut butter sandwich, She can't help if she likes Jiffy Peanut Butter.

Fifthly, I resolve to BLOG EVERYDAY!!!

There, that's my New Year's resolutions, and hopefully they'll last past 1 am on New Year's Day!!!
