The kids did...
- Luke--Learn to read.
- Sam--Learn to tie shoes.
- Em--Memorize times tables 0-12.
- Jake--Achieve First Class in Boy Scouts.
Now those are some resolutions. They have a beginning and an end. And they will all, most likely, be checked off the list before the ball drops next December. In other words, they will be resolved.
But what's a thirty-nine-and-a-half-year-old supposed to do? I'm not sure.
I refuse the usual exercise more/eat less/save more/spend less/organize more/clutter less promises. Those are about as exciting (and unending) as a resolution to keep the kitchen counters clean. I want something a bit more jazzy this year.
If you have some good suggestions, I would love to hear them. Seriously.
In the meantime, here are a few glimpses of our frozen tundra. The snow is gone, but the air is absolutely painful and all the moisture in the grass has turned to ice.
So, of course, my kids are outside with no coats on.
