Hate ’em, but making ’em anyway

1 01 2009

I hate making resolutions. However, there are so many things wrong with me that if I don’t resolve to improve at least a few of them, they will never, ever let me get my crown. And I do so want a crown. So:

*I will not get angry with Jeff for getting me a bowl of cereal. I will recognize that it is a thoughtful gesture on his part, and just get over the fact that his ratio of cereal to milk is not the same as mine, and that’s okay.

*I will give Target significantly less of my money this year. Same goes for you, Old Navy.

*I will learn to let go of things, both emotionally (I tend to hold a grudge) as well as physically (the chances of a national disaster that will leave us all desperately in need of empty glass baby food jars, empty baby wipe boxes, and are zilch, and I must come to terms with this).

*I’ll use the caps lock sparingly. Not everything needs to be YELLED AT YOU, right?

*For the love of bananas, I will start reading the labels on the things I buy; I have brought home an item in the wrong variety/flavor/size/gender etc. one too many times.

*I will either install rearview mirrors on myself, or start turning and looking before I move, lest I knock Ethan to the ground with my booty once more. So far, he’s always bounced right back from these accidents. But I fear having to explain his head-injury-due-to-a-butt to the ER nurse someday, and thus I shall try harder to contain my rear in the coming year.

I never make resolutions because I can never, ever keep them. Good for you for taking the first step and good luck, I’m cheering for you. he he

Good luck this year.
At least they’re reasonable resolutions…

i highly approve of the first three resolutions.

the fourth; i could care less how much you YELL at other people 😛

the fifth resolution will come as a shock though, i’ve grown to expect products that are “reduced fat”, “self rising”, or “solid stick” when they weren’t on the grocery list that way (it always brings a smile to my face).

and as funny as i find hearing “OW!” “sorry buddy, i didn’t see you there!” from the other room, i think ethan will really appreciate the sixth resolution.

good luck!

I am pretty caps-lock friendly, myself. I see it as more emphasis than yelling, because that’s how I mean it. Caps lock is more eye-catching than, say, italics or bold print. So really. If there’s one resolution you don’t keep, this will break few hearts.

Strictly speaking, would that make him a butthead?
