    If I make a resolution not to do something, then I am predisposed to doing it, and the other way around. I supposed Murphy's Law has a controlling interest in there somewhere.

    Actually I'm just hoping to live to the end of time so I can watch the activities from my lawn chair on the front lawn.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    i honestly start out kinda small.. nothing i can forget or since it's a huge goal, i give up hope.. last year, i made it a goal to be nicer to my family.. *we seem to take advantage of our family and we don't really say 'i love you' as much as we should.* this year it will be to cook more than i have been.. i love cooking, but with the cold weather and moving, i've been getting lazy and we've been eating fast food a lot. lol

    I too ususally start off small. This year it is very important for me to learn to live on a budget and not say, oh I get paid next week; I can afford this, not really knowing how much that next check is. I have never been rich by any means, but have always let my family live beyond our means. NO MORE!! I have already started drew up the budget and am ready to go.
