As most people do, I tend to make New Year's resolutions.
And by January 2, I've forgotten them. Or decided that they weren't really that important.
This year, I decided to try something a little different.
I'm going to set some really easy, attainable goals. One's that will boost my ever-fragile, New Year's failure rate. Goal's that will pull me out of the January 2 depression funk.
Here's a list that I'm working on. Remember, it's just a "working" list, so it's subject to change...probably on January 3.
Goals for 2010
#1. Make sure that I get the first cup of coffee. And the second. (The grounds get stuck in the throat.)
#2. Watch more HGTV...and take notes.
#3. See how many pots and pans I can dirty during the preparation of each meal.
#4. Assign dish duty to someone else.
#5. Cook every dish in my new cookbook, "Romancing the West".
#6. Try not to gain more than 10 pounds.
#7. Don't worry about 2009's 10 extra pounds.
#8. Stop obsessing over 2007 and 2008's extra pounds.
#9. Turn another year older.
#10. Try not to cry uncontrollably for the week prior and the week following said birthday.
#11. Reset goals if these seem too difficult.
I may be speaking out of turn, but I think I may be able to manage these! See, already my self-esteem is boosted!
Bring on 2010! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
