Happy New Year!

I hope 2009 is a good year for everyone.

I resolved years ago never to make resolutions for the New Year, and it has worked out very well for me. It took me a long time to notice that there wasn' t much use in setting myself up for possible failure and self-loathing by mid-March.

New Year's resolutions, I suspect, only work for those enviably disciplined folks like The Oracle and my father who, ironically, are the types who don't need a new year to motivate themselves into changing a bad habit or improving their lifestyle. Nope. They can set their minds to something and be done with it.

I am too much like my mother, prone to sloth (especially when it comes to housework) and procrastinating until it's time to panic. Even now, I should be hauling my butt to the supermarket for the casserole I'm taking to a party this afternoon, but I'm sitting here blogging instead.

It's a good thing The Oracle needs a turn on the computer, or I'd sit here another half hour.

Happy New Year right back atcha!

The only New Year's resolution I've ever made and kept was to not make New Year's resolutions. Was pretty easy, once I set my mind to it. :)

One of the signs of being a blogaholic. I'd set up an intervention but I'm just as bad.

My only resolution this year is to accept the things I have no control over and to stop daydreaming/planning the things I want to do and do them.

I need to go to the grocery store. Ugh. That requires me taking a shower. Ugh.
