A New Year



and welcome to a new decade!

I have never been big on New Year Resolutions. Who wants to look back at the previous year and think, "Wow, I accomplished nothing I set out to." How depressing?! So I rebelled, but this year I rebel no more. I decided to invite resolution into my life.

1. I want to run in a 5K. I know, I know. I stink at running. I know, I know. I will complain the whole time and probably continue to be made fun of by family. But I will run in one. It may take me 3 hours (oh, I hope not!), but I will do it.

2. I want to learn to fight fair. I have a problem. When fighting with Jeremy, I fight to win. No matter what it takes. My voice gets loud and my words mean. It's absolutely horrible. I hate it. So this year, I've decided I want to change. If I can't be nice or listen, I should not be allowed to have a voice in the fight.

3. I want to be a little more laid back. I seem to be a bit dramatic at times... you know.. at times. And I'm sure it's a trait that Jeremy just loves about me. But I can, again.. at times, annoy even myself. I look back and think, "Wow, did I really just act like a 5-year-old to get my way?" And since I'm approaching an older age, I suppose growing up should come on along. (Oh, and yes, I said a "little more" on purpose. I've got to go slow, People. I'm no magician!)

4. I want to get on Worst Cooks in America. More on this in a later post, but, just know, this one will be the most challenging one to accomplish and I am fully up for that challenge. No matter how many videos, letters, or crappy meals I have make.

5. I'd like to have a 5th Resolution to round it out, but I can't think of one... Maybe you could help. What resolutions have you set for the new year?? Leave a comment! I'd love to hear them and maybe steal one or six! You know.. to round it out...

I have resolved not to give so much advise to others -- as if I had any answers! Thus, no resolution for you to borrow, because that would sort of be like giving you advise. Let me know if you come up with any good ones that I can borrow, though!

My New Year's resolutions are

#1 To read at least one book per month.

#2 To work out at least 2 times a week for at least 30 minutes.

And I think that's it so far. Surprisingly I think the book thing is gonna be easier than the working out :/

I always know i will laugh when i read your blog. You are not that bad of a cook...granted your contributions have been pretty safe...but i think you would be wonderful with a television career- so i will support your cause. As for the resolution....um maybe you should try to have a baby- i think that you would be the funniest and fun mom. But, maybe that isn't a resolution and you are probably putting it on your list of what not to do. Look forward to catching up tomorrow...i have many questions for you.
