Resolutions Persephonified  
Resolutions are lunacy.  I admire people that can get theirs done on purpose, not just by dumb luck.

I'm 5 for 19.  And that's with a little grace.


Lose 15 lbs. by swimsuit season.  - Yeah.  I've actually GAINED 10.


Finish projects begun in 2006. *     - Not. Even. One.  

Work less on fan fiction.  HA!  Entered a contest AND an exchange. 

Work diligently on original novel.  - If by 'diligent' you mean about 1000 words, then yeah. 

Make a Bible study a priority.  - I have done this.  About 70% of the time, if I'm being honest.

Play with my kids more. *coughs* 

Keep my house clean(er). *looks around shiftily* 

Purge the house of unused items and give excess to charity. In the middle of this, actually.

Exercise 3 times a week.  Hahahahahahahahahaha!                                                                                


Make cheese its own food group.  - Erm... I'm getting better?

Gather new hobbies like wildflowers. Nope, no NEW hobbies.  I intensified the ones I already had, though.

Indulge every single plot bunny that hops by.  Only two.  Doesn't the Malfoy Family Reunion and The Hogwarts Croquet team sound like they're begging to be written?  We'll need some smiles once DH comes out, I think.

Use D&G.com as a way to pass time while the muse is out to lunch (well, less, anyhow). *whistles*

Open the refrigerator and pantry doors 60 times a day. See resolution #1 

Treat Legos as if they were the plague. I've built two monstrosities.  Ethan wants the Hogwarts castle for his birthday, and that makes me want to poke out both eyes.

Tell my husband that the leftovers currently residing in the back of the fridge are an “experiment.”  Have not done this.  Have kept fridge tidy.  Yay!

Buy things that I don’t NEED.  Chuh.  I just went shopping today, for the first time, I swear. And I got really cute stuff!

Surf the internet mindlessly and realize I’m still in my jammies at 11:30 a.m. I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about.

Declare that the walk between the fridge and the computer is almost a quarter mile.   It is an awfully long way, though.  See resolution #1.


 Sometimes I just get disappointed in people.  Women, specifically.  Why can I not have a smooth friendship with other women (in rl) without misunderstandings and snarky attitudes?  Seriously.  They make my husband look uncomplicated. That said, I'm going to do my best not to give into all my instincts and withdraw from everything and everyone. 

I am:: bedroom
I feel:: disappointedmisanthropic
I hear:: Peter Pan on DVD

I think keeping the fridge tidy is an important thing. I always wash out my fridge every time I go grocery shopping (so every two weeks or so). VERY important. And I try to never make too much food. I make just enough. Leftovers don't get eaten at my house... ;)

5/19 is not a bad start. You still have 6 months. Don't worry. I'm failing miserably at my ONE resolution... I promised to play my piano more often. I think since January I've played a handful of times. *hangs head in shame*

My piano currently lives in the garage.

At least you are trying *g*

Trying. Not very hard, obviously.

It's okay you're doing better than most. My excuse for eating cheese is that I'm getting my calcium since I don't drink milk.

My husband works with almost all women and complains about the very things you said.

Women are a chore. I'm sure I'm a chore as well, but I like me. *g*

Wow, that's a lot of resolutions! Good on you for actually have the guts to make them. I know I wouldn't be able to do that. I gave up on resolutions this year because I never keep them. It's like as soon as I write it down, I do the opposite. *sighs*

That's kinda how the other 14 look. The opposite. Ah, well. I've still got six months!
