Pharmacy Chick wishes all of you the happiest of New Years!
We had a small get together of friends last night that went into the wee hours of the morning, partly because of the festivities and partly because I own a dog terrified of fireworks (Dear neighbor who shoots of fireworks at every occasion: may you get a huge boil on your butt that never heals).
Its common to get introspective at the beginning of each year, make resolutions and attempt to make huge life changes overnight. Having done that, I have learned that practice is a perfect setup for failure. Other than the date ( and the mess in my kitchen) there isnt anything really different between Dec 31 and Jan 1, so trying to convince myself that the first day in Jan of any given year will cause me to instantly change all my bad habits isn’t likely to be successful.
I resolve so quit my occasional swearing: O Hell, who am I kidding…oops, I guess that takes care of that…
I resolve to never say bad things about anybody else…It would be a piece of cake if it wasnt for that biachi Karen..
I resolve to eat only healthy foods..right after I finish this pizza, chocolate cake, and snickers bar, and this entire tray of rice crispy treats and my 24 pak of coke….
I resolve to exercise every day…if I can get the dog off my lap, out of this snuggie and off the couch…NOT.
I resolve to be more patient:...if this petulant SLOW POKE OF A JERKFACE WOULD HURRY UP AT THE CHEKSTAND AHEAD OF ME!!!!!! ahem, never mind.
I think you get my point…
therefore, my “resolutions” are really more “hope-o-lutions”. I hope to Love God, play more golf, stay fit, find joy, play with my dogs, Love Mr chick a little more every day, find something interesting to write about, and keep my sanity at work (probably the hardest one yet…)
