2012 New Year’s Resolution

31 Dec


As another New Year’s Eve is upon our doorstep, I sit here staring at my computer screen trying to think about something so epic to post on my blog about ending 2011 and the start of a new year. However, all I can really think about is how there’s nothing good to watch on Netflix anymore, wondering why the cat is trying to bite my leg, listening to Tinkle snore as she sits on my lap and typing random words on my keyboard hoping in the end it will all make some sort of sense.

Master keeps asking me what my New Year’s Resolution is going to be. I know we all vow to accomplish the usual cliché things: Lose weight, spend more time with the family, swear off smoking maybe even quite drinking. However, I don’t have a drinking problem! (I don’t drink before 5pm, (I’ve got klass people) and I only “friendly socially” smoke around other smokers. This got me thinking, what would be my New Years Resolution? So far after much thinking (I gave it a good 10mins) this is what I have come up with:

  • Watch more TV and or movies (you’d be surprised as to how much you can learn from TV shows, just the other night I learned how to make a shiv out of a toothbrush)
  • Try to drive at or under the speed limit ( only if there is a cop around and or if I’m not hungry or in a hurry )
  • Try not to worry so much (at least not in public, on twitter or Facebook)
  • Enjoy more of the sweeter things in life (cupcakes,chocolate, cupcakes, candy, cupcakes, cake, cupcakes… you get the idea)
  • Always check for toilet paper stuck to my pants as I leave the restroom ( I bet you aren’t surprised to know it has happened to me before! Actually more times than I care to mention)
  • Gain more weight (I’m starting to see my feet again)
  • Read some more (but I’m counting Twitter, Facebook and blogs as reading material)
  • Get more organized (I still cant find any matching socks in the morning)
  • Stop procrastinating (after 12/21/12, having made sure the world has not ended, I’ll do my Christmas shopping by Dec. 23rd and not on the 24th like I did this year)
  • Be a better role model for my daughter (she still can’t get the basic double flip single knee arched back cradle move on the pole)
  • Get more ME time (bathroom tweeting time doesn’t count anymore)

So there you have it! My New Year’s Resolution! But who are we kidding? You know I’m not going to make it past January…. or will I?

Now as we sit back and pretend that 2011 never happened and look forward to the Mayan apocalypse, I’d like to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year’s

I’d also like to hear what your New Year’s resolutions are .
