Friday's Top Ten

My top ten New Year's Resolutions:

10. Get dressed before noon at least one day a week.

  9. Eat chocolate once every other day.

  8. Stop sassing my muse.

  7. Stay away from cute little shops except on the weekends.

  6. Listen to our dogs.

  5. Drink wine only with meals.

  4. Quit rehashing openings and endings.

  3. Believe in myself.

  2. Laugh.

And my #1 New Year's Resolution:

  1. Have Faith.

I really must get at those resolutions. My year won't be complete until I've broken them all.

Huntress said...

Have faith and much laughter pretty much covers everything :)
Have a great year!

Mason Canyon said...

Perfect! Especially since you crossed out that "other" and "only." ;)

Happy New Year! May your 2012 be full of only the best things.

L.G.Smith said...

Life without chocolate and wine isn't worth living. :P

Happy New Year, Carol!!

Summer Ross said...

chocolate is super important! Happy New Year!

Ricardo Miñana said...

Que pases unas felices fiestas y para
el nuevo año que llega se cumplan tus ilusiones.
¡feliz año 2012!.
un abrazo.

Laura Eno said...

#9 is a great one! #4 is a toughie though.
Happy new year to you!

Andrea Franco-Cook said...

Ahhh, faith=belief without proof. It's often difficult to achieve, but I'd be nowhere without it.

I also think hope is equally important. There were time when it was the only thing that kept me writing. Hope that someday I'd finish my book, that I'd be published, and last but not least, that a random reader would enjoy my story. Glad hope runs eternal.

Also, I like #5. Wine is good for the heart. It's a win-win situation.(: Wishing you all the best this New Year.

These are all great resolutions especially #10! Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy New Year Carol! Julie

Rochelle Staab said...

Great list, Carol. You inspired me to write mine. Faith is a great one, and #4 is a personal favorite, laughter is a must. Happy New Year!

Julie said...

#10 made me laugh as soon as I started to read your list LOL. Great list, you always manage to make me smile or laugh, and be touched at the same time.

Happy New Year to you, Carol!

Carol Kilgore said...

Colette - Thanks. Same to you.

Alex - I think so, too.

mbj/Delores - I know that feeling :)

Huntress - Numbers 1 and 2.

Mason - I wish the same for you.

Linda - Yes :) And I wish the best things for you, too, in the new year.

Luanne - Exactly!

Liza said...

#1 made me take a deep breath...and say...yup. Happy New Year.

Carol Kilgore said...

Summer - I think so, too :)

Ricardo - Happy New Year!

Laura - I think it's good to work for the strongest opening and ending we can create. But not so good to try eleven versions of 147 different ones.

Andrea - Faith and Hope. I agree.

Julie - Same to you.

Rochelle - Cool...I'm an inspiration - LOL :)

Julie - Good. Laughter and smiles are always good.

Escellent list. I've got some quotes to help you stick with your list on my blog.
