So I have been totally afraid to commit to this as a resolution (you know, in case I got lazy and decided to back out) but I found an all women's triathlon/sprint triathlon that I can do August 1st in a nearby city and I really think I want to do it! They even have a novice group for those of us who have never done this before and are terrified of swimming in open water so that we can start off with extra low expectations. I'm kinda excited.
2. Read my scriptures regularly.
Ugh. You. Guys. This was a bad year for daily scripture study. But I'm recommitted! I will read every day this year.
3. Watch less T.V.
Sigh. I love T.V., I really do. It's so pathetic. I know I'm supposed to quantify my resolutions to be more successful at them but I haven't quite figured out what I'm willing to cut back to. And I'm having a hard time getting off the tube during the holidays; I figure it's like going on a diet halfway through a buffet. Real life starts again next week, check in with me then.
4. Stop making fun of how the newscasters dramatise the weather.
Ah, but it's just so easy.
5. Learn to cut Tyson's hair.
Hee hee, we may have to wait until we have another long vacation (which will probably never happen again) before I embark on this resolution. I don't want Tyson to be obligated to go to work or anything with a really horrible haircut. I should have practiced on him a couple weeks ago when we didn't have anything to do (oh yeah, besides finish school and move to a different state) but I didn't think of it then.
6. Quit picking at my cuticals.
I really feel like this is my most annoying habit. Ever. Including the time I was constantly singing Shania Twain songs. I keep telling myself that once I stop picking at them and they look good I will get a manicure. Still haven't gotten one. So if you see me messing with them, slap me! Twice! I want that manicure!
So, those are the resolutions I'm willing to commit to at least halfway. I think it will be a good year.
