Some Late New Year's Resolutions

I have a rebellious heart, so writing down New Year's resolutions generally ensures I will do just the opposite. Thus, much like Bridget Jones, resolution number one this year is:

(1) Try to pay attention to New Year's Resolutions.

That's why I'm posting them here - y'all can hold me to them. So here are a few others, ecological, financial, and personal:

(2) Stop drinking bottles of water. Even at work. Try to remember to bring portable, reusable water bottles everywhere I go.

(3) Take my lunch to work at least two days a week. Hello, that's $75 a month. Try to remember to get lunch out of fridge early in the morning when I'm harried and forgetful.

(4) Try to remember to bring cloth bags to the grocery store. Maybe I'll make a couple cute tote bags from my fabric stash?

Have you noticed how many of these resolutions involve remembering to do something? Which brings us to:

(5) Try to be less forgetful and better organized generally.

This from the woman who has never owned an umbrella for more than a week before it mysteriously disappeared.

And, finally, last but definitely not least (unless we're talking about least probable):

(6) Devote lots of time and energy into turning my troublesome pooches into uber-well-trained, well-behaved angels. Become amazingly competent positive-reinforcement-only dog-mom.

I'll let you know how this goes.

  1. I recommend mason jars for #2, if only so that you can compile a comprehensive list of moonshine jokes and anecdotes.

    As for #3, I HAVE been known to pack lunches for roommates past. (You know, for fun. But now I suppose I could actually chalk it up to professional development!) But you lost me at this whole remembering thing.


I love comments! I do my very best to respond to comments, by email or here, although I am often running late. I also try to follow and comment on my regular readers' blogs. So please let me know you were here!
