Back to the grind

Happy New Year to you! I wanted todays post to be my dedication to my resolutions for this year. First, and most importantly, what did Santa bring you? Guess what I got?




You guessed it!

But do you know what is so interesting about Christmas? My Santa husband gave me this, a huge basket full of Bath&Body Works goodies, and a card. Guess what lingers on my mind the most, what makes me smile when I think about it? The card. It's always the small gestures that warm our hearts the most, ya know? Though, I must admit I LOOOVVVEEE my Kindle. I have already downloaded 7 books and read 3. I'll post a review on Friday of one and then next Friday another, heck I may even make Friday Kindle reading review day. Ha!

Okay, now onto important *business* matters: resolutions.

Wiki definition: "A New Year resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a personal goal, project, or the reforming of a habit."

My take: A reason to make yourself, in some fashion, better than you were the previous year.

My resolutions (in no particular order):

  1. Write at least 5K a week. On a good week I can do that in 2 days...a bad week would require lots of coffee.
  2. Blog regularly: M, W, F
  3. Attend a writing conference and/or class
  4. Exercise regularly: M, W, F
  5. Contribute set % each month to a new charity (I feel like I'm doing something worthwhile at work if a % benefits someone else.)

So there you have it. Of course I have other ones that fall into the in-my-mind-for-no-one-to-hear-or-see class, but these are the basics. What's yours?



  1. M.B. - you are a better woman than I! :) I had to resolute not to resolute! I think you have a great list for the year and wish you much success. And good for your hubby on giving such a thoughtful gift and CARD! (I'm a sucker for them, too!)

  2. Haha! Well, I will have to report back in a month to see how well I keep to it. :)
