Because Resolutions are Made to be Broken

I am making one resolution this year, and you're looking at it. I have no idea if the Powers That Be are going to allow me to post every day, but by gum, I will try. If you would like to join Blog 365, you can sign up here. Last time I checked there were 500 nutbars on the list, and counting.

I usually don't wait until a new year to make resolutions. Once I decide that I need to make a change, I go for it right away. Putting things off gives me too much opportunity to worry and get bogged down in self-doubt. So I try to get everything done as soon as possible.

I call my strategy Anticrastination. See, it's the opposite of Procrastination. I don't condemn Procrastination. I am open to all philosophies of life. However, some procrastinators have taken offense when they hear how I do things. Any hard-core Procrastinators out there, may begin hating me.... now!

As for New Year's Eve, I'll be spending it on the comfort of my sofa this year. I am having some kind of issue with my sinuses. My face feels tired, like it just ran ten marathons. My eyes want to droop and my jaw wants to hang open. I don't think I could put on enough makeup to make that look attractive, and I also doubt that I'll be feeling very perky by midnight. We'll see. If I'm still awake by then, I'll be toasting the new year with Orange Crush.

Happy Celebrating, and Best Wishes for 2008!

Hope you're feeling better and have a wonderful 2008. Maybe some of your anticrastination will rub off on certain readers (she said sheepishly).

Sorry to hear you're not feeling all peachy this New Year's Eve. Hope it will still be a pleasant night.

Blog 365? (Blog 366 in fact, since this is a leap year). I wish you luck on that one.

I did the NaBloPoMo thing, and it went kinda smoothly. But, for a whole year? I'm not even going to attempt that.

Kell: Thank you! I am feeling better. :-)

R.E.H.: Aha, very observant! But it's still Blog 365. Apparently February 29th is our "day off" for the year. Although by now I'm in such a groove of posting every day, I'll probably just plow right on through, health, time, and technology permitting.

I look forward to reading those 366 posts, Sparkling. Just don't get blogged down. Sorry. Couldn't resist.

Wow. 365 days, huh? I would join up, but I'm already a day behind. Maybe I'll join up and not take February 29th off...

Anyone else doing Blog 365? Let me know. I'll add you to my list of lunatics (which is actually a blogroll specifically for participants).

Come on, Jenski! You can do it!
