the holidays are over. now what?

Resolutions, that’s what. The Man and the Girls are content with the usual spoils of Christmas, so it’s time to cut back to me….as if I ever TRULY do that. Usually, it’s all about everyone else, and that’s just fine by me. But, that doesn’t leave much time during the year to fulfill those mostly empty promises I make each NYE. So…this year WILL be different, dang-it!!! Woo-hoo 2011!!!! Instead of the obligatory, gigantic, unattainable resolutions I’ve made in the past, I decided I would make TWELVE OF THEM….or, one per month. Simple, entirely possible, personalized goals….all about me and designed to make me a better person in one way or another 🙂

Here they are:


12…learn to poach an egg and make Eggs Benedict. (status: complete….see pic below)

 11…conceptualize and create an original, personal work of art (status: complete)

title: “the 81 bottle wake-up call”; mixed media on canvas

10…update my blog more often (status: started tonight)

9…tell at least one person, each day, something I like, enjoy or admire about them (status: in progress & on-going)

8…return phone calls & emails in a more timely fashion (status: successful so far)

7…try to see my dear girlfriends at least once a month, but hopefully more.

6…continue going to the gym regularly (status: technically complete for this month)

5…drink more water (status: successful so far)

4…have a really delicious facial once a month, if financially possible. (status: I still have 26 days left this month)

3…ask for help when I need it, instead of shouldering things alone (status: successful so far)

2…stay ahead of the laundry (status: VERY successful so far)

1…get certified to teach “Dance With Me” classes (status: 1st opportunity is at the end of this month)

 We’ll see how I do 🙂 

Give it to me straight. I can take it :-)
