Resolutions Schemzalutions

This is the first thing I saw when I opened up my google reader today – I LOVE IT!!!! Not sure where “Sasha” got it but it’s hilarious and unfortunately true for me.

So some of my New Years Resolutions are as follows, I’ll probably think of more:

  • visit my Grandmother more, she lives in the same town and I only see her on holidays because some of my family can’t get along – that is not my problem – I get along with them just fine and should not be influenced by their bickering.
  • drink less, I can’t say that I’ve ever really had heart burn but after the 2 bottles of wine I put away on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I think I may have experienced it – not cool… so for that and other reason (one being MZ “teasing” me about being an alky) I’m going to drink less. My first step is that NO I do not need a glass of wine while getting ready to go out and henceforth drink more…
  • on the flip side I would like to somehow find a better appreciation for “real” wine… I love me some cheap sweet wine – such as Moscato. I would like to be better educated if nothing else – I hate being at dinner and not knowing what kind of wine to order and not just the rule of what goes with what, because I honestly think one should drink what they like not what is “etiquette appropriate” but I don’t really even know what’s out there and what means what….

  • Read more – at least read one book more than what I’m supposed to read for book club.
  • Become a better conversationalist – I’m just no good at asking questions of others – yes I know I’m a brat. But sometimes I really feel like people only ask “how are you” or “how was your weekend” because they feel like they should – most of the time they don’t care and I hate just saying “good” just to provide an answer and then starts the back and forth – most of the time I really don’t care to share or care to hear, so now you’ll know if I ask you a question – I genuinely mean it, I do really want to know… hey it makes sense in my head.
  • Run more

So that’s some of my resolutions – I think they are achievable.

Happy New Year!!!

We had a few options for NYE this year, but we decided to keep it low key so we could actually enjoy our day off the next day – that is a SURE sign of “getting-old-ness.”

We went to Ruths’ Chris with a majority of the THSC and a few new faces and then went back to the Barnes’ for a champagne toast. It was really quite nice not to worry about feeling like crap the next day or trying to remember what I said or if I made a complete ass of myself. And I was also super excited to wear my NYE dress and sparkly shoes- this is definitely only a dress that can be worn on NYE or if on the off chance I go to Vegas or a cruise in the near future… My mom kept calling it the “upgrade” dress because she thought it looked like the dress in the Beyonce commercial about upgrading something -I can never quite remember what that commercial is for but now I have the song in my head and probably so do you— sorry about that.

We had a great time with friends and family and are looking forward to a fabulous 2009!!!
Here’s to you (yes, that means you). =)
