The first week of the New Year is gone, and so are my New Year's resolutions. I've heard it said that New Year's resolutions are a to-do list for the first week of January. I don't think mine made it even that far.

Like many people, the first thing on my list was that I resolved to eat healthier. I gave up trying to lose weight years ago so I figured that if I just resolved to eat healthier, the weight would take care of itself. That lasted about 4 hours until someone offered me a cookie. That led to another, and another, well, you get the picture. Before long I was stuffing my face, looking like a human version of Cookie Monster, only not blue. 2nd on the list was to get at least 15 minutes exercise every morning. Here in the frozen north of NH it's very icy this time of year so the safest way to walk is on a treadmill. I haven't even resurrected it from under the piles of stuff where it has remained buried since I got it last year. It has been of some use this past year, however, because the handles make a convenient place to hang the plastic bags for recycles. Number 3 was to bring my 2011 accounting up to date. The week is over and I'm not even 1/4 way through. Which brings us to the 4th thing on my list - to be better organized. Now where did I put that list?

What about you? What are some of your resolutions, and are you being successful?

Please leave a comment below. I love hearing from you.

My only resolution is to remember to send birthday cards to all of my siblings, and their spouses. I have been missing the spouses for several years, and this year I missed 3 siblings! It's unforgiveable, and so I am going to make a concerted effort this year.
