The 90 Day Plan

I came across my resolutions for 2009 yesterday. As I read through the list, I noticed I had not quite fulfilled all of the changes I had set for myself. There are roughly 90 days until the clock strikes at midnight for 2010. In the meantime, I am working diligently to complete this list.

1. I will not sit in my living room all day in my nightgown. Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom. Well, this one is still a work in progress, maybe I'll just move my bed into the living room.

2. I will no longer waste my time reliving the past, instead I will spend it worrying about the future. Check, I have taken this task a step further, now I don't worry about either.

3. I will do less laundry and use more deodorant. Check, Secret Clinical Strength Sport in the Marathon Fresh scent really works!

4. I will brush my teeth with the bristle end of the brush. Check, no more bleeding gums.

5. Assure my lawyer that I will never again show up drunk at my DUI hearing. *hic*

6. I resolve to work with neglected children -- my own. Doing much better, but still a little forgetful around their birthdays.

7. I will stop sending e-mail, ICQ, Instant Messages and be on the phone at the same time with the same person. Damnit, this one is tough!

8. I will spend less than one hour a day on the Internet. This, of course, will be hard -- I'm not a clock watcher. I am screwed.

9. I will read the manual... no more throwing it out the window. Check, I remedied this one by not buying any new software.

10. I will think of a password other than "password." Check, a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y

11. I will not tell the same old story at every get-together -- boring. Check, I've stopped going to get-togethers all together.

12. I will stop considering other people's feelings when they so obviously don't consider mine. Check, I've become a hermit.

13. I will be more imaginative. Still, a work in progress.


  1. These are some good ones and ones that I would have a hard time keeping myself.

  2. Is it a revealing nightgown and, if so, are you willing to share any pictures of you sitting in your nightgown in the living room? I'm just asking.

    So, you've become a hermit, have you? Funny, I haven't seen you at any of the meetings. That's not surprising because I'm always the only one there.

  3. @ Peach Tart - Being a belle myself, I knew you'd relate.

    @ Joel - Pictures? Not without your credit card number. Uhhh, hermits don't attend meetings.

  4. These could have been mine if I had bothered to write any down. Good going on your progress so far. I've become a hermit too though I'm hoping to break out of that shell next year. I'll have to put that on the list.

  5. New year's resolutions? What a concept!

  6. Funny list, especially 1,2 and 11. Also, I am a little concerned that Joel's a perv, so watch your back (he apparently already is).

  7. @ Jen - Uh oh, breaking my hermitage? I dunno, it's too easy being a recluse.

    @ nonamedufus - I know, novel idea isn't it?

    @ MikeWJ - Thanks, MikeWJ. Life is like a box of chocolates; (*sighs*) unfortunately, all I got was a box full of nuts.

  8. On December 31, I'm going to plagiarize these resolutions for my own list. But not before... I have to give myself time to adjust to the idea of not following them.

  9. Gasp!

    You mean we're NOT supposed to use P A S S W O R D as a password?


  10. Oh god...every one of my resolutions were tossed out the window.. I'm a resolution failure this year..but at least I admit it and can now continue on my way with now worry at all

  11. @ CatLadyLarew - Go for it and good luck!

    @ Quirky - Nope, it's not very secure. Try using your name or birth date, that's the ticket.

    @ Nipsy - Well, when you resort to being a hermit like I have, you tend to obsess over the craziest things.

  12. Not that I don't love the others, but especially love No. 8. I'm with you: I'm screwed too.

    As for No. 13, you're doing pretty well on that front, from what it looks like here. :)

  13. I have not managed to keep my resolutions list any of the last 5 years. I will continue using the same list until I get manage to keep all of my resolutions.

    1) Don't make a list of resolutions.

    You can see why I keep failing.

  14. @ unfinished rambler - I should have set a goal of less than 8 hours, I'm afraid I set myself up to fail. Thank you so much for your kind words - I try.

    @ Carson - Well, actually you are successful if you resolve not to make any resolutions and don't. See, there's the positive spin. Good luck next year!
