    Do you have New Year’s Resolutions?

    I’m sticking with mine this year so I’m going to be careful what I say.

    Yes!  I plan to clean out every cupboard and drawer and get rid of all those items that say,  "For what reason, are you keeping me"?    :)

    hector5559

    Best idea yet ,miss Ducky,
    itsmee

    I love this. It may be on my list.
    lambshank

    you'll probably know the reason the minute after you've thrown them out

    Isn't that the truth, lamb. "I know I had a container for that thing! Where is it"? :)
    Ann

    Ducky. that is a great idea too. I have tried that so many times and never finished what I started.
    lambshank

    Don't know about you but all the clothes I stuffed into charity bags 6 months ago thinking I would never fit into a tiny size again I could sure use now.....wow, have I been shopping (again) would have been a whole lot cheaper to keep the stuff!
    itsmee

    I am starting now, Miss Ducky. I'm throwing out or giving away every single unwanted item that clutter my mind and life. Out they go. Heave Ho!

    itsmee

    ROMOS

    That's a good start I suppose.

    Great idea!
    lindilou

    someone's gotta do it...no-one else to pay the bills....I think I may be a little bummed out about it...escapism sounds like a pretty good alternative though...perhaps to resolve to..say...walk back over the land-bridge between continents...tho' I may need a canoe for a portion of my walk, and hide out in Scotland forever...in some lovely hidden away pub where I could begin drinking again and live out my days on bangers and mash and beer....whoops! wham!.....ow! I just fell off my treestump and woke up....where am I? Ducky? ROMOS? Is that you guys???
    Lord, t'under and geesus...Happy New Year! LOL

    mycatsmom

    lindilou

    everyday mcm...every bloody day!!! ;D
    Ann

    Ahhhhhhhhh! Hugs. Everything will be better for you in the "New Year" Love and prayers for you. You are so special, Lindy!
    lambshank

    And Iv'e resolved to start living, instead of living to work
    doolittle

    Living is good. I will visit you often in the pub! (although I usually choose to escape (in my mind) to a tropical paradise! (Who needs the cold?)
    lindilou

    ...just headed over the consarnit land-bridge now Doc....now where in the jinkins did I put those oars?!! (arrrr...keep the toddies hot Doo!) LOL
    doolittle

    I'm sending the Luna Moth to pick you up! Hot Toddies all the way around!!
    lindilou

    ...scanning the horizon....
    Aha! Methinks me sees her approaching now....
    Whoa! My mistake Doolittle...just a TIDAL WAVE!!!!
    LUUUUUNA!!! (scoop)
    All good Doc...Luna scooped me up like a pile o'...stuff! LOL
    doolittle

    Please forgive Luna! I kept her up late last night- she was the DF (designated flyer)
    lindilou

    ...not the fault of Luna..rest assured Doc!! Ha!

    I am going to keep my "Control Freak" radar charged at 100%.  It will save me a lot of grief.

    ROMOS

    Did you have battery trouble last year?
    FISH-O

    Yes sir-eeeeeeek! Now, I have invested in a life-time supply!
    FISH-O

    Why would that be Don?
    FISH-O

    Open mindedness only works with art. You have given me a 'head shake' ... Thanks Don. I needed that!
    FISH-O

    It is "Live long and prosper" :D... and a Happy New Year to you as well, Don. I wish you happiness, good fortune and great health!
    doolittle

    I shall make you a control freak radar cap! What color would you like?
    I am going to make myself a mean person meter cap!
    lindilou

    ....my 'anger management' cap keeps going askew...so my 'chillpill' radar will be on perma-frost! My 'control freak' radar is programmed only to control the one 'freak'...that being...me! And.. I have an awful lot of grief saved up too Fishes!!...man I gotta get my head examined..put it on the list....speaking of which has anyone else been feeling 'listless' lately? Peaces everyone! Happy whatchcallit!! 8D
    doolittle

    Yeah it is the listless time of year- not enough day light!!
    FISH-O

    'Listless' would be a step up. I am downright comatose.
    lindilou

    A comatose Fish? Time for the Nurse Shark! ;D

    1:- GET RICH.


    2:- Quit getting roped into doing things for other people that I haven't got time for.


    3:- Stop giving credit to people with a sob story.


    4:- remember my wife's birthday.


    I should point out that I made all of these resolutions last year [ & the year before & the year before etc.] Hasn't worked out for me yet. :(

    Ducky

    Happy New Year to you too Tommy.
    doolittle

    Le weep...and I was so counting on a loan from you :)
    Tommyh

    A loan Doo? I wish I could.I really do.I just saw on the news some rich dude spent $400k on a new years eve party & I just thought,how many poor buggers could put just a part of that amount towards making their life a little better.It's a crazy world.
    doolittle

    I know- people spend wild amounts of $ on silly selfish things. I went to a formal affair last night. I picked up a little black dress at a consignment shop (it cost $18- would have been $200 brand new). It was in flawless condition and fit really well!
    Tommyh

    Thank you for the mental images Doo.Little black dress.MMMMM!

    Tommy...(slap your hand) :)
    doolittle

    LOL- why I'll take that as a compliment Tommy!
    Tommyh

    It was meant to be a compliment Doo.
    And Ducky...slap my hand if you want but I probably won't feel it.I'm wrapping my hands in "DUCT" tape.
    Ducky

    And I'm slapping you with my DUCK tape covered hand!

    No more watching News on Cable, except BBC.

    ROMOS

    Bit more of the truth there Ann.
    mycatsmom

    Ann, you'll miss seeing all the murders. ( wink)
    Ann

    Romos, I still watch my local news. What I hate about Cable News, that there are so many opiniated people talking about problems, people I dont even know who they are and could not care less.
    Ann

    MC, All the problems of the world are on the front page of my computer. At least I have a choice, to read about it or not.
    mycatsmom

    As they say in the TV news business, "If it bleeds, it leads "
    I don't like making resolutions nothing worse than breaking a promise to yourself within the first week lol..
    I love it when people say thats it im giving up smoking lol.. You light a smoke up and they ask for one ..
    Oh ill do it next year lol..
    FISH-O

    I must have hit some kind of nerve with my answer... You voted me down. Happy New Year any way! :)
    Deleted User

    It was by accident .. Sorry lol , don't think that , I'm really not that sensitive. I can take alot before I will say anything and your post didnt offend me fat arse fingers lol xo
    lambshank

    lindilou

    ...uh...Don....too late! ;D

    I'm gonna try to keep up the good habits I picked up on 2012. I learned a lot..........

    Tommyh

    What good habits?
    Did you switch to menthols or something? LOL
    jhharlan

    For 2012 I had promised to write more letters and I'm praying more these days, counting my blessings and such....I'm happy where I am and feel lucky and blessed. I just miss my cat.
    jhharlan

    We're thinking about a kitten and getting ready to put up with it for a year until it becomes a cat......
    doolittle

    A kitten is a lovely idea!!!!! What fun!
    jhharlan

    It's not kitten season, damn it....
    mycatsmom

    jh, hopefully you've learned them from us....b/c we're such good role models ;-)
    doolittle

    Julie- my cat was a three month old and I got him this time of year...look around

    Of course....several, which are always my NYRs.  THIS year, I am absolutely going to focus on being healthier in my behaviors.

    Bob/PKB

    Secret cameras hidden in your home, Doo.

    I would like to give up smoking, i don't think it will happen, especially after a few Scotch's and Beers, we'll see.

    lambshank

    Please do...millions have so there's no reason why YOU can't.

    bullet, if you don't want to quit for you, then quit for your children and grandchildren. They're going to need you. And your wife.....if you have one.
    mycatsmom

    Hi,Lamb. Haven't seen you in awhile. Is everything ok ?

    I started smoking in April after a 5 year hiatus. Why do cigs go so well with alcohol, I never could figure this one out!

    CB...'cause "bad things" like to hang out together? LOL!!
    Bob/PKB

    When you are tired of it and it brings no pleasure, you'll quit. Works the same as a marriage. :D
    Tommyh

    hey mate I'm still trying too.I haven't made it a NYR tho.But some time this year with a little bit of luck.
    Happy new year Kent.
    itsmee

    I have been using Nicorette Gum for about 20 years. I absolutely can not give up Nicotine. I don't smoke cigarettes and the gum is very expensive. However, without Nicotine I kind of huddle in a corner and feel like I can't move. It's hard to explain but it is so. Good Luck.

    Hi mycatsmom, been up in Brisbane for 7 weeks for radiation,but doing O.K, thanks

    Lambie, I did not know you were having treatments, may you get through these difficult times and all the best to you in the New Year
    doolittle

    @ bob- ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!
    Bob/PKB

    Doo, I should know you would appreciate my analogy more than anyone.
    mycatsmom

    Lamb, you'll be ok. I had rad and chemo too, back in '07.
    itsmee

    lambshank: I didn’t know you were having treatments either. We fly along so fast on akaQA that we miss stuff. Keep us informed. I wish you the best.

    Eat as many baked dinners as I can, and failing that try a new dessert every night!

    lambshank

    much better than the water diet I've been on for the past few weeks, oh I can almost smell a leg of lamb as we speak!
    lindilou

    One of my mottos....life is uncertain, eat dessert first!! ;D
    Happy New Year Lamb and LIVE to LIVE!!

    Im thinking of joining a wine tasting club,

    lindilou

    hector5559

    that's a cute picture of you, Itsmee. Wish I lived by you so we could have tea together. Anyway, my resolutions are the same as 1/2 of America's  .........to lose weight. I'm not fat, but have a belly bulge, thanks to my female surgery  :-(

    itsmee

    mcm: It would be good if I could lose 12-20 pounds. However, I have stayed the same weight for 20 years. I’ve given that one up.
    We will have a cup of cyber tea and be friends.
    Thank you for the compliment Lady in Red. : )

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm NOpe !
