End-of-the-Year Lists!


Yesterday Wendy talked about how she loves end-of-the-year lists. I am a list maker, too, which is why I almost always have a To Do list going...which could include anything from “pick up dry cleaning” to “decide what color eyes to give to main character.”

One list I never make, though, is New Years’ Resolutions. I prefer the idea of “goals” instead, not necessarily breaking old habits, but forging ahead in new directions. But when I saw on Facebook that Baskin-Robbins (my absolute favorite ice cream store) thinks that 2011 New Years Resolutions should include eating more ice cream, I changed my mind.

So for the first time ever, here is a list of my New Years Resolutions, starting with the obvious:

--Eat more Baskin-Robbins ice cream. (And throw out bathroom scale.)
--Wear my favorite suede jacket whenever the mood strikes. (Heat, humidity, rain, snow--who cares?)
--Play the Drive the Car on Empty Game and see when and where I run out of gas. (Oh--and opportunity to start a new list!)
--Buy more cute shoes. (Putting "cute" ahead of perfect fit, comfort and price.)
--Get less sleep. (More time to play Facebook Scrabble.)


Haha! Now it's your turn...what can you add to this list?

I love your list, Tina!~ Yours too, Janie! Much better than the usual "lose weight, organize my house, spend less money on cheese" types of resolutions/goals.

Thanks, Wendy, thought I'd start the year with humor!

Haha! Love it, Tina. And you should definitely get less sleep and play more Scrabble. If you're sleep deprived I might actually have a chance at keeping up with you!

Tina, your list is great. I find it very amusing that some of my goals are getting MORE sleep and eating LESS ice cream. I have a feeling I might be a bit jealous of you this year. :)
