I used to make a grand list of resolutions. Lose 10 lbs., write a book, complete a triathlon…crap like that.
I then became a little more realistic. Get to the weight on my driver’s license, stop using four letter words and run a mile without wanting to die.
Then reality kicked in and my resolutions followed suit. Find good smelling fabric softener and make my bed everyday. I actually did pretty well at these two. So the following year my resolution was that I resolved myself to keep my previous year’s resolutions.
Out of my fabric softener resolution came a pseudo holiday in the land of moosh.
Fabric softener day.
One day, about every other month, I would use the last of my fabric softener and would get to buy a new bottle and/or box. Oh how I looked forward to fabric softener day. Every other month Snuggle, Bounce and Downy would come out with new ways to entice me to try their newest concoction of clean laundry bliss.
Snuggle Blue Sparkle and Downy Cashmere something in the light orange bottle have always remained front runners.
So here I am.
I think it’s time I move on from fabric softener and a made bed.
So here goes.
In 2009 I will not make myself feel guilty for not having resolutions.
Oh I have them, resolutions. I have about seven. But I’m not going to utter them out loud.
Blissful ignorance 2009!
(Speaking of Blissful. I’m speaking at the Blissdom Conference February 6-7, 2009 in Nashville, TN. Wanna go? Last day for early bird pricing on registration and hotel is today.)
