Well I’ve never made one of these silly resolution things because I knew it would be broken in about 2 hours but I thought well now that I am older and have done more stupid things in my life, I might as well try this resolution thing out. So I have decided to take on the task of quit drinking. I have to admit it is a daunting task living in the great state of Wisconsin as most events center around liquor of some sort not matter what the even might be. Painted the garage? Have a beer. Woke up this morning? Here’s a bloody mary. Cold outside? Whiskey it is.
So have jumped on this New Year’s resolution deal not only for health reason but personal sanity as well. I am hoping the sanity comes quickly as it is causing me to want to drink as I find myself turning people down for things such as wine tastings and beer clubs.
Anyways, I haven’t had a drink in 10 days and going strong and have taken the up the hobby of becoming a legit cat lady by knitting with a cat on my lap. Thank God, I have not graduated to watch soap operas but I mean it is a new year so who knows what this crazy world could throw at me.
I am taking this 2011 year by the sober horns and running with it. So if you’ve made the decision to resolve to do something over the year, I salute you and good luck. If you have not, at least try something new during the year…perhaps sushi or ballroom dancing or baking or even video games. It’s a big crazy world out there. Anyway, Happy New Year!
