Happy New Year's Eve!


I know people probably say this every year but I CAN NOT believe 2009 is already over. I’m taking a poll...are y’all going to say the year like “OhTen” or are you just going to say “ten?” I wasn’t sure how I would say...I have been having a tendency to say “OhTen,” like I’m going to be “THIN IN OHTEN!” I stole that from Jordan...ANYWAY...I just thought I would ask you all.

I almost forgot! Our trivia team won for the first time EVER last night. I will say that having 11 people there (one who is a former trivia host) helped a lot but we won!!! It was A LOT of fun.

I think we are going out tonight to celebrate the new year and I’m very excited.

I don’t usually make a resolution because it’s always lose weight and I never do...but I thought that I would make a few and really try to stick with them.

1.) Lose weight. I know...seems too simple but it is sort of an all encompassing resolution. I want to look like a different person at this time next year. I want to be healthy. I want to be happy with myself.
2.) Stop beating myself up when I have a bad day. There will be days when I screw up. I have got to stop making it such a big deal. If I screw up several days in a row...that’s one thing but if all I do is eat a few extra chips...there is NO need to go into a guilt ridden tailspin. I should be proud and as long as I stay motivated...I shouldn’t be so hard on myself.
3.) WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! That IS who I am right? I need to get my butt in gear and put my stuff out there and write some more.
4.) Be kinder. I am pretty brash.
5.) Spend more time with those that ALREADY love me and not worry about those who may or may not...I’ve got a lot going for me and I’m too old to waste my time with anybody other than the ones that are always there for me.

I hope that I can stick to these. I believe that I can. What are your resolutions? I believe that we should all make some and really devote ourselves to them and not because it’s the new year but because we could all use a little polishing in different areas of our lives.

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL & SAFE New Year and I will post the next time in 2010!!!

  1. Woohoo!!! I'm so excited BATLBW won trivia last night...I just hate that I wasn't there! I must be holding the team back...lol.

    I think your resolutions are great, and a lot of mine are essentially the same. I'm still trying to think them over. In general, I just want to me a better person in "Oh-Ten."

    Happy New Year to you too!!!

  2. Jordan you were greatly missed!! We had a lot of help winning but it was still fun! I resolve to be a nicer person and to lose weight I have never made a resolution before so I hope I am able to fulfill that promise to myself. Mom
