I don’t usually make resolutions at the beginning of the new year. I like to keep my options open and also I think it sets me up for failure, but here it goes!
I’m going to organize the school room and give away or sellall the curriculum my kids have aged out of using. I’d like to loan out mySonlight cores, but to do that I have to, you know, reclaim them from bothhither and also yon.
I resolve not to wear Spanx this year. To heck with girdles,I’m going to let it all hang out. I’m flabby and fabulous. Deal with it, World.
I will laugh, especially at myself. Big, loud belly laughs. Life is too short notto laugh every day.
I shall get rid of every item of clothing, pair of shoes oraccessory that I don’t love *and* wear, even if they were expensive. Thank you, cast of Hoarders! Your pain is mygain.
I’m going to drink more coffee. It makes me happy. Also, it’sthe Poor Girl’s Adderall. Espresso makes me so productive! And focused. Did Imention focused? I’m going to make some delicious gourmet coffee right now.
I resolve that I will focus on joy. Talking to you guys is somethingthat gives me joy, so I thank you for that.
Stop doing my Yoda impersonation so much I will. Dang, myfirst failure.
Any resolutions for 2011? Paying very focused attention I am.

Hmm…I was going to resolve TO wear Spanx this year! Don't like coffee, but my new "Adderall" is that stuff called 5-hour Energy; it's the bomb, and I like it, especially in the afternoons when I tend to crash. :^)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!WOOO~HOOO! I'm going to have more fun this year! I'm going to suck down MORE STARBUCK'S THIS YEAR THAN LAST!!!!
5 hour energy is not as tasty as coffee. I got a sample at Costco.
My resolutions? My daughter (12) wants to do a one-year chronological Bible plan and I am going to do it with her. Wish me luck.

I love your list, especially the flabby and fabulous (not that you are either of those). I think that we put to much on ourselves to be superwomen. 🙂 I'd love to pick your brain and see how sonlight curriculum works. I'm thinking about using it this next year, but I want to see how it works in a large family with multiple aged kids.
Tina, what does it tast like. I wonder if you can mix it with a latte.
Linda, I second that!
Amy, good luck to you and your daughter.
Rebecca, it is what it is, regarding the flab. I'm not using SL this year. I think the advice on the Choosing part of their forum can be helpful.
My resolution LAST year was to not do Sonlight anymore! And it has gone well. Very scary to step out on my own at first….
I love your resolutions – especially the getting rid of stuff. I have so much that I really, really like….I just never wear.
So…it must go! Thank you!
