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& 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.
