I did not set a New Years Resolution.  There I said it.  I really more like whispered it.  Why not?  Everybody does. Well, honestly....because I have decided not to set me self up to fail. I like systems and plans and charts and files...I like things to be organized and neat...everything has a place and everything in its place...  My life just doesnt work out that way...it never has...so, as a result...I am not resolving to do anything.  I am  instead going to make a list of things I would like to accomplish in the coming year.  I am not giving myself a time line...therefore I will not fail.  My list goes like this...

Read the Bible in 90 days.  (the reading schedule....it doesn't matter if it takes me all year)
Complete Couch to 5K training...
Make menus and stick to them
Keep my house respectable
Take my kids to the park...often
Use my Museum Membership...often
Cut my Dr Pepper intake...(those that know me...know that it is ridiculous!)
Complete Creative Correction~ the Bible study
Lose 30 pounds
Go to the following places:   pick your own patcha "real" farmers market,  the wildflower farm
Make strawberry Jam...
sew the stinking patches onthe girls sashes for Girl Scouts
clean out my extra closet
get rid of the clutter crap in my house
make a budget and follow it to the penny!

So, we'll see  : )

Today a friend of mine posed the question...or rather the statement....a Friendship shouldn't be work.  A marriage takes work, compromise, and effort. Well all know that.  But, a friendship should be easy.  I started thinking about that.  I have a lot of friends.  But, only a few of them are really my friends.  You know the kind that know all about you and still love you.  Some have been there for you to cry on...Monica, for example was there for everysingle boyfriend caused tears that i have ever had.  Autumn was there for several of them.  They see you do stupid things.  They support you, encourage you, tell you how stupid your being, and still pretend to like the idiot you were crying over last week.  Those two know absolutely every thing there is to know about me.  I had other friends along that path...but they are the only ones still there.  My friendships with them are not work...they just are.  I have some friends here that are not work...they just are.  How many people say that about me?  I wonder...am I a good friend?  Am I the person that they know they could call at three am because they had a fight with someone....and know I would answer.  Today I learned that not all friendships are created equal.  Some are work.  Some are not honest.  Some are onesided.  So now I must figure out how to move forward and be the type of friend that just is....and figure out how to balance the ones that are sooo much work.
