New Year’s Resolution

January 7th, 2008

I’m going to tell y’all something that I plan to do.

But it makes me nervous.

Even though it’s not that big of a deal–I’m still afraid of committing to it.

You see, I try really, really hard to take my commitments super seriously.

I only say I’m going to do something when I know for absolute, positive, sure-shootin’ that I’m going to do it.

And if there’s any question about me possibly not doing it, then I won’t commit to it.

Occasionally, this creates tension with Prince Charming…..


“Heidi, will you please do the dishes after dinner tonight?” he’ll kindly ask.

Tonight? Well, I was going to scan some pictures, but….. I’ll try to do the dishes,” I vaguely respond, avoiding eye contact.

“You’ll try?” he repeats with confusion.

“Well, yeah, I don’t know if I will for sure, but I’ll try,” I explain with a pathetic grin.

Awkward pause.

“Heidi, either you will or you won’t….. So which one is it?” he probes gently.

He watches me patiently, waiting for a commitment.

A yes.

Or a no.

I squeeze my eyes shut and clench my teeth tight.

“Okay, fine,” I concede, “Yes, I will do the dishes after dinner tonight.”

Charming shakes his head and smiles, “Thanks, Love.”


So here’s my confession to y’all…..

[Deep breath!]

In an effort to be more consistent with my blog, here is my goal:

Post every day: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Don’t plan to post (unless Charming’s off with the Boy Scouts and the mood strikes just right): Saturday, Sunday


Okay, I said it.

I might regret it later, but I really, really hope not…..

Wish me luck!! :)
