New Year’s resolutions. Lose 50 pounds. Quit smoking. Work less. While those are all noble resolutions, sometimes you need to throw a few easy ones into the mix. A few gimmes. Just to boost your spirits.

1.    I will not park illegally.

2.    If I park illegally, I will try really hard not to get caught.

3.    If I get caught, I will pay the ticket immediately and not let it accumulate additional fees.

4.    I will make a new pot of coffee at work when I notice it is low instead of changing my mind and not having any at all.

5.    I will make my bed. Almost every day.

6.    I will always wear clean underwear, just like my mom told me.

7.    I will only drive 10 miles over the speed limit. Unless it’s really important, then just 15 over.

8.    I will not watch “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” … much.

9.    I will not update my Facebook status from work, the bathroom or a red light. I may tweet about it, though.

10.    I will buy my dog his own ice cream cone, no more sharing mine. 

11.    I will eat breakfast every morning. I heard somewhere that it’s important.

12.    I will not scoff at all the smoker’s trying to quit. It’s hard.

13.    I will smile more, even at complete strangers. Unless it is after 1 a.m. and I am in a dark,    crowded bar. Then, no.

14.     I will do more silly things, like pushing all the buttons on the elevator before getting off. Life is too short not to have fun.

15.   I will return all library books on time. Mostly.

            16.    I will post to my blog at least twice a week.

17.    I will eat more fruit.

18.    I will not accept every single Friend request that comes my way just to up my numbers and look cool.

19.    I will stop using the word cool.

20.    I will find a really cool word to replace the word cool.

21.    I will learn a new language. Wait … that requires a lot of effort, concentration and studying. Hmmm… I will visit Rosetta Stone’s website at least once a month so I can tell people that I am “thinking” of learning a new language.

22.    I will try to cook at least one meal a week that does not involve a box.

23.    I will actually replace the toilet paper roll and not just set a fresh roll on the back of the toilet.

24.    I will eat the vegetables that I buy each week at the grocery store. No, really. I will.

25.    I will take New Year’s resolutions more seriously.

ugh! see - these were supposed to be easy ones to follow-thru on.... I crack myself up, so only laughing at my jokes when appropriate would be tough and those darn tomatoes taste terrible in the winter! ;(

How about:
I will only laugh at my own jokes when I'm either alone or with people.
I will sometimes sweep the floor underneath the chairs and tables.
I will wear my gum boots when it rains even if they do not look cool. (There's that word again -- when will you find us that substitute?)

Okay I'll play.
I will was the dishes most nights before I go to bed.
I will floss my teeth on Mon, Tues and Friday.
I won't buy store tomatoes in the store during the winter, because we never eat them.
