New Year's Resolution
The Christmas lights are hung, presents under the tree, fireplace is lit...
What a grand setting. Peaceful. Joyous. Serene.
Then you remember an upcoming New Year's resolution will mark a fresh beginning. But WHAT!!! What will that resolution be?
Hold on...let's see:
1- To keep the house clean
2- To never buy frozen meals again
3- To be up-to-date with the laundry and never EVER lose another of hubby's socks or underwear
4- To let the kids clean up their own rooms
5- To be kinder when friends and family call
6- To help my kids with anything they want, like mind their three dogs more often
7- To avoid saying no right away when a friend asks to go shopping
8- To tell the truth to mom when she asks if I cleaned the house today
So many choices...then again...
1- The house will get dirty the next day
2- Frozen meals have helped save the day
3- Wearing odd pair of socks is not a bad thing as long as you keep your ankles well-hidden
4- I'll shut the kids doors...who's gonna know how dirty their rooms are?
5- My family and friends can call me after supper
6- I raised my family
7- I hate shopping so unsure why I would vow to go shopping in the first place
8- What's the point of telling mom the truth about the house. I'll keep on lying.
There, that helps. I'll stick with my usual New Year's resolution:
To do my best in anything that I do!
Safe for another year.
