Good Morning, 2008

January 1, 2008

We welcomed 2008 with a big midnight sledding party that involved running into trees and getting snow all up in Steve's face.

If you have never gotten snow all up in Steve's face I would highly recommend it because it is a lot of fun. The only way it could be more fun is if he learned how to steer better, or maybe if he just let me do it already for the love of God.

This morning I'm being flooded with "ddr adults weight loss" spam, and I don't like the idea of spammers telling me what my New Year's resolutions should be.

That's pretty presumptuous, don't you think? What if I'm more of a Wii person?

I've never been one for resolutions. Why make long-term promises to myself that I know I'm going to break within a month? If I'm going to lose weight, I'm going to do it when I'm good and ready, not just because it's the start of a new year.

But I'm thinking the beginning of a new year may be a good time to set out some personal goals. Is this the same thing as making resolutions? I don't really think so, unless my goals include losing 50lbs and stopping smoking and going to the gym for an hour every single day twice a day on the weekends.

No, I want my goals to be manageable and attainable and things I'm actually likely to work towards, if not accomplish. I want to guarantee success, because failure scares me.

Hey there, 2008: don't fail me.


Way to go gal, I agree whole heartily!

the last resolution i made - i don't remember how many - years ago, was to not make New Year's resolutions. good new year to be, i think.
