My New Year Resolutions

These are my New Year’s resolutions, raw and unedited, so beware.  I’m tagging this for the girl folk because I need the therapeutic benefit of a little female sympathy and understanding over here.  Men peek at your own risk.  So here goes …

  1. I have a new love for elastic waist pants so therefore I will wear elastic waist pants …  whenever I want.
  2. I have always wanted to try that plum hair colour.  It WILL happen!
  3. If I want to cry over a sappy movie I will cry until my nose runs, and I will not pretend it is allergies.
  4. Yes, I use my husband’s shaver for my legs.  It works really swell.  I have no plans to change this.  Do not mention this to him please.
  5. I told myself that I have enough jewellery.  I was wrong.  I may need more bling.
  6. Anyone who has over a “D” cup should be exempt from wearing a life jacket.  The coast guard should know this.
  7. Panty hose are from hell.  I am not wearing them.
  8. I will evaluate the following throughout the year: “too many shoes”  “too much shopping” “too much sugar.”   I will let you know how that goes.
  9. If I don’t park the car between the lines the first time, there is stays.  Suck it up.  Don’t be a cry baby.
  10. Since when did they come up with those “stork” parking spaces at the mall?  As far as I am concerned, they owe me 36 months retroactive parking spots.  I’m caching in.
  11. I refuse to wear anything with the words “support” or “control” on it.  There are just some things that have a mind of their own.
  12. Of course Costco samples counts as supper and I ain’t cooking.  If you are still hungry go back through the lines again.
  13. Chartreuse is a colour, as well as Fuchsia, Eggplant, and Eggshell.  I am not explaining this intricate and complex concept anymore.
  14. Yes, chocolate is a staple food,  the same as butter, eggs, bread, and milk.  Need I explain this?
  15. This year I am celebrating everything … cellulite, wrinkles, gray hairs, menopause, and my new mustache.  Who will celebrate these gifts with me??
  16. There is no such thing as too many Girl’s Nights Out!  Who’s in?!
  17.  There is no scripture to go with this devotional.

What are your plans?  Do tell!

Love Cyndi
