New Years Resolutions

Well, we now have two days of 2009 in the books and how did you fair with those new years resolutions? Yes, I too have a New Years resolution. One of my resolutions is to drop the 47 pounds that I need to loose to be at my ideal weight. So far I haven’t had much luck at getting started on loosing that weight. On the bright side there is always day three to start. For me loosing weight is a tough challenge. I like to eat. I also have a tendency to eat when I am depressed or upset (you have heard the term "Comfort Food" used).

One of my other resolutions is to be a better dad. I have done my best in the past, but I want to do even better in 2009. I won’t get a chance to work much on this until a week from today. I did call them just a few minutes ago and they seemed happy. My kids are first priority for me and seeing them happy makes me happy.

If you are like me most of my resolutions are not completed. This year I didn’t make the list of resolutions long. I have all year to see how these turn out. If I had to pick only one to complete the 2nd one ("To be a better dad") would be the one I would pick. Hopefully if you made resolutions for New Years they go well for you this year. Next up: Day Three!

Nope. Couple of years back I made the resolution to never make resolutions again. Guess what - it's one I can keep. Good luck!

Ida, Hope you had a good Christmas and New Years. I have that clutter problem as well. I still need work as a person. Oh well, I hope this year brings good things for all.
