New Year's Resolutions

It's time to make our New Year's Resolutions. We do it every it peer pressure? Do we make them because everyone else makes them? And it's the talk around the water cooler? "What's your resolution this year....Huh? Huh? Huh????"
I've made them. We all have. And they're usually all the same and we usually break them before the week is up. If I WERE going to make resolutions, they would be the standard ones:
1. lose weight
2. get in shape
3. eat healthier
4. be more frugal
5. be more productive
6. watch less TV
etc, etc, etc.
I've made all those resolutions. And I've broken every single one of them. I'm an overweight, sugar-eating, lazy slug who loves to watch TV and spend every penny I make on useless junk. Does that make me a bad person??
I watched an interview on TV with a psychologist who was explaining why people break their resolutions so easily. It's because they bite off more than they can chew and don't make the resolution specific enough. So here is my very specific resolution:
I will not make any resolutions this year.

My resolutions usually last until the 3rd or 4th. Hey, I'm weak and I know it! Although one resolution which is new for this year is to try and review books in a more timely fashion. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday and upcoming new year. Remember, always brake for penguins!
