The New Years Post

Resolutions are stupid. Two years ago I resolved to go to Iraq. That totally didn't happen. And then last year I decided that this year I would just love people. And I don't really feel like I did that so much either.

This morning while I was sitting in bed blogging in my head (oh be quite, you know you do it too) I decided that maybe the key is making resolutions that you can't help but keep. I could resolve in 2009, for example, that I will:

-- Have a baby
-- Live somewhere where it rains a lot
-- Watch Friends on DVD
-- Go to the gym at least once

But that's cheating.

There are a few things that I really WANT to do in 2009 -- like be awesome looking again by the time my sister in law gets married, meet more wonderful people, build meaningful relationships, laugh and enjoy each moment as much as possible, start working hard to raise a wonderful young man ... you get the picture.



  1. Dude, I've been Friends-marathoning it for the past two weeks. A co-worker has the entire seasons on DVD and that's what this girl does when I get home at night. No shame there!

    I've been working on my 2009 goals...I call them goals, not resolutions. :)

  2. Resolving to love people is really funny to me and I don't know why because it sounds like it really shouldn't be funny to me.
    I resolved to fit back into my 4 dollar striped gap pants I always got compliments on.

  3. I think you should resolve to not equate looking awesome with a number on the scale. :) Just sayin'

  4. Hey, great idea... I'll just make this year's resolutions on Dec. 31, and make sure I've already done everything I resolved to do! Thank you for helping me out of this difficulty.
