Jennifer here. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This year, we spent our first holiday in Florida, making new friends and new traditions. A new tradition our family started was to declare our new years resolution at the Christmas dinner table. My mom’s husband Karl said, “if we tell our resolutions, we’ll all be there to make sure we keep them on track.” A nice idea, I thought. So, we did.
Karl said, his resolution was to give up eating potato chips, while my mom resolved to play more golf. I gave the obligatory “finish the damn book” speech, while my husband spewed the cliche of losing weight. Jacob, my 6-year-old, said he wanted his yellow belt in karate.
So, there they were, our resolutions out for all to see, and to hold us to.
I thought here at the Scribes that declaring our resolutions on the blog may be a good thing to do as well. We’re like family. We can all list what we hope to change, quit, finish, and do then check back at the end of 2014 and see if we did it.
So, who’s with me? Go ahead, leave your resolution in the comment box and I’ll check back at the end of the year and write a post about all those resolutions and we can see how we did.
