I said:
too many things.
1) Not to be so damn cranky with the boys
2) To improve my pooping health (upper GI and colonscopy on Jan 7th! Yippee! Brian's got the paint out and is prepared to give my crack some beautiful bulls eye rings around it! Is that tacky?)
3) To purchase a home before April (I'd say the Word, but it's now part of the banned words list of 2009. It rhymes with limulus)
4) To enjoy my boys more
5) To have more then 2 date nights with my husband per year, one involving at least 2.5glasses of wine (I could include the alone times we have had while I've been in the hospital, but I don't think that counts if I'm the only one under the influence of nasty narcotics-dilaudid-).
6) To help make better the certain things our sons need improving on (whether that may be confidence, anger management or speech).
7) To blog more
8) To help more
9) To involve my career more, or rather, my future
10) To stop expecting expectations which will help me avoid ever being disappointed, or end up getting a side order of martyrisms.

There you have it 10 for 10's!
What's yours?
Or have you already blogged about yours? If you have, leave your link in my comments field so people can come visit you. Or, email me your link, and I'll add it to this post right here!

(that would be Sully's words, not mine)

I hope you find the things that make you happy this upcoming year and I certainly do pray its a far better year than the one we just left.
Come visit me sometime....I haven't seen that you've been there for quite a while. I miss you. And resolutions? I resolve not to have any...I just set myself up for disappointment because I rarely can do everything I want to do. So I just rely on hopes, faith, God and his band of angels. Be well Elizabeth. Big hugs. xo

No resolutions here but I like your idea of a wanna-dos list. I hope that 2010 is SO much better for you and yours than this past year. That's the truth!

I have one resolution which I hope to report on in a few weeks when it happens. In the meantime, I wish you all the best in 2010

Rebecca said...

Hey Crusty! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm off to read more of yours. So far you've given me some really great giggles!

Another mom of boys. ;)

Gypsy said...

I loved #2. Go on....DO IT. It will give the docs a laugh.

I never make resolutions at New Years. I just try to improve on things at the time they need improving. That often doesn't work either but who wants to be perfect anyway?

I hope you can achieve at least some of your wants Elizabeth and that this year will be a great one for the whole Crusty family.

I don't make resolutions. I just try to enjoy each day I get and to do the best with it that I can.
