Holy crap, it's 2011.

On the First of January I was talking to highcon, explaining how this year I'm not worrying about what other people are thinking, obsessing over whether I've offended somebody or being paranoid when it comes to saying the right thing at the perfect moment. Especially this year, when we have to make a lot of decisions that others will likely criticize. And as someone who is constantly trying to control things that are completely out of her control, this is a problem whether or not nuptials are on the horizon. Generally, I'm not big on resolutions, but this is something I really should work on. I was feeling pretty confident about sticking to it.

Highcon listened patiently. Then he said he wished he had a recorder to capture all the promises people have been making to play back for them later.

As a backup, I'm going with the safe bet held by nearly everyone out there: Exercise.

I decided some time ago to not make resolutions, just plans.

I have an aunt who says that as long as people are not paying her bills, they have no right to criticize. Man, I love those peppery aunties.

I have this exact same resolution, but you know, for my life. I think resolutions are too long term and vague and high pressure to work. It's harder, but I think you really have to take it day by day to make it work.

But I also think sticking to your guns on such an important day is well, important! You want to please people, but at the end of the day, it's about you and Jon. Hopefully people don't give you too much trouble!

My "resolution" is to try and not use plastic bags for shopping anymore. Hopefully I don't forget, like I did two days ago.

So true, GG. sometimes those aunties are onto a few nice ideas.

i'm facing an uphill battle, syar. but at least i'm not alone! and i've been trying to bring at least a few of my fifty canvas bags whenever i shop, but always seem to forget. that's a good one!
