Better New Year’s Resolutions

Updated: May 3, 2022

You ever notice how those new year resolutions always seem on the punitive side? Lose weight, exercise more, stop biting your nails, and call your mother more often (sorry, Mom. I love calling you, I promise!).

I’d like to make some resolutions that are a little more realistic, for one, and a little more generous, for two. And so, I give you my resolutions for 2016!


Wear a bra as infrequently as possible. One of the best feelings in life is taking off our bras, am I right? So let’s not wear them so much in the first place! Nothing wrong with a camisole. And the bras we do wear, let’s make sure they’re wicked comfy. The girls deserve it.

Play with puppies more often. There’s a pet store not too far from us that lets you go in and love up the dogs. This should be required therapy for all of us. What makes life better than a puppy, I ask you? Not a thing.


Eat dessert and really enjoy it. Every person I know who doesn’t eat dessert, ever, is a total pain in the butt. I’m not telling you to binge eat a Pepperidge Farm coconut cake in one sitting. But go ahead and have a healthy piece and enjoy it. Plus, I’ve tried to eat one cake in a single sitting, and it didn’t work out too well. The sugar jitters took days to fade.


Block out bigger chunks of time to read. It’s good for the soul. We all know that. Turn off the non-reading devices, let the house be quiet, and just read. There’s really nothing better, is there?

Happy New Year, gang! All the best to you and your families with lots of love from me and mine.
