Following Through on Not Following Through

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on January 4, 2009

I’m really good at not following through with things. Except for saying I want brownies, then eating said brownies. So these damn New Year’s resolutions I keep reading are making me think I need to write my own resolutions for this fancy new year. And it better be fancy.

Except I want to actually follow through with these promises. In order to keep my resolutions, I’ll need to make them easy to live up to. That way, if by some change in the course of my lazy nature I do more than expected, I’m double awesome.

Thanks to the resolutions post Suburban Correspondent did the other day, I’ll just copy off of her idea.

0. Make Mr Sir smile at least once a day. THAT I will NOT fail at. *swoon* barf

1. Leave my DVR show List at or above 45% capacity with 41 Season Passes.

2. Pay my cell phone bill on time. Should be easy with auto-pay.

3. Keep 40% of my Twits at a level of snark that keep people guessing whether or not I actually mean it.

4. Comment on at least 50% of the blog posts I read. That may be a stretch, but do-able.

5. Reply to at least 50% of the blog comments I receive. Again, a stretch, but do-able.

6. Laugh so hard I snort at least 1 day a week.

7. Hug my girls so hard I almost break their ribs daily. (Please don’t call DCF.)

8. Take at least 100 photos a week. I’m averaging about 50 now, so I think I can force myself to take more. (And if anyone wants to send me a DSLR to review and keep, I’d give special favors.)

9. Fiddle with at least 5 of the 100 photos I take on Flickr and Skitch (my newest discovery).

10. Maintain my current weight of 3569 lbs (+/- 3000 lbs).

So, there you have it. My resolutions to maintain my averageness. I think I can succeed if I just don’t try.

Hello Angie,

Please forgive my boldness, but I am doing a bit of blog surfing to invite people over to my blog for my 2nd annual giveaway. Rest assured, this isn’t some kind of gimmick. It’s just my way of celebrating. I am giving away a free caricature drawn by me, plus a few other prizes. I hope that you will do me the honor of coming over to take a look.

2009 better be fancy… like brownies with icing… lots of chocolate icing. Good luck with your list. I’m stealing #6 for my own.

I like your resolutions. My new resolution may be to see how outrageous I get on my blog before I lose readers.
