Not Yo Typical New Year's Resolutions

I generally don't make resolutions but this year, I have plenty. They are in no order of importance.

1.  Use a blow dryer for its intended purpose
2. Refrain from changing any toilet paper rolls in the house just to see how long it takes them to do it.

3. Clean out the clutter in my life. This includes emotional clutter.
4. Touch my toes and get up from a seated position without grunting
5. Find more uses for coconut oil
6. Resist the temptation to buy Hello Kitty panties for my dental-hygienist 
7. Stop hoarding groceries in my house like I live on the prairie and I'm 100 miles from the nearest mercantile
8. Breathe more
9. Try to vacuum up as many Rainbow Loom rubber bands as possible 
10. Delete any friends from my Facebook list who continue to whine and complain about absolute nonsense or are chronic attention seekers
11. Try to stop whining so much
12. Act on every great idea I have
13. Detoxify the house. This includes making my own laundry detergent and cleaning products and ridding of all products that have been deemed toxic for both body and home.
14. Try to keep my car cleaner
15. Pay as little for TV watching as possible while getting the most bang for our buck
16. Get more sleep
17. Fashion a set of sheets that allows the spouse to be warm and me to be cool
18. Become more techno savvy
19. Add more interesting shapes to my pancake repertoire
20. Have more sex dreams about Don Draper
21. Get the farting and VARTING problem under control
22. Keep better contact with friends and family, especially the far away ones
23. Stop apologizing to strangers in stores when THEY bump into me
24. Forgive and forget
25. Learn to accept a compliment by simply saying "Thank You" instead of downplaying whatever it is I'm being complimented for.
26. Educate my doctors more about breast cancer even though they think they already know it all
27. Be fearless

Happy New Year to you all! Please leave your questions and comments below and thank you for reading this year, and last. Peace and good health to all of you.

Happy New Year to you too. That's one heck of a list :) I'm trying to imagine a duvet made of two parts for those who get too hot, and those who get too cold. You are onto something brilliant.
