When I was young, each new year meant making a list of "resolutions."
Just the word "resolution" gives me the creeps. It's so unfriendly. It kind of connotes "no fooling around."
Most years of my life "lose weight" was the Number One Resolution. For the first few weeks of the year I usually did quite well with the food and then, eventually, reverted back to familiar eating habits.
DO YOU MAKE NEW GOALS EACH YEAR? DO YOU COMPLETE SOME?
P.S. The little dog with the Christmas tree on top of his head, shown in this post's photos, sang when you pressed his paw. His ears went up and down, too. Got a couple of these delightful doggies to give as gifts this Christmas season. They definitely elicited smiles.
