My thumb is healing from yet another knife-cleaning incident, and having cut myself while cleaning knives far too many times in the last year, I resolve to stop cleaning sharp knives. Let Ray do it, let mold and bacteria fester, or perhaps just start knawing through all of our food with my teeth – I’m just not gonna clean those knives anymore. (Yes, this is a resolution that’s made to be broken.)
I realized the other day that my closet is almost entirely filled with gray and black. Whether I’m attending a wedding or Easter Sunday Mass, I always look like I’m in mourning. Therefore, I hereby resolve to buy only clothes with color this year.
And while we’re on the subject of clothes, I discovered a hole in the armpit of a favorite sweater today. I’m still wearing it, just like I wear several other items of holey clothing. Thus, I have come to understand that resolving to buy colored clothes this year is not enough. I resolve to buy clothes. And I resolve that they will be colorful.
I am a serial resigner on Words with Friends (ree-zign-ur, meaning one who resigns by failing to play for extended periods of time). Ergo, I resolve to finish at least ONE Words with Friends game this year.
I resolve that – at least one time in 2014 – I will have my 7 QT Friday post written on Thursday night.
I resolve to get my email address removed from all (OK, most) of those junk email lists. My inbox currently says that I have 7,188 unread messages, and this seems a bit excessive.
Last but not least, I resolve to go and have a blast playing at the waterpark with the kids and Ray this afternoon. We’ll ignore the snow and bitter cold outside, and pretend we’re in Cancun for a few hours!
