New Month’s Resolution for October

Is it possible to go an entire month without complaining?

I shall try. It will be a difficult month. I may as well embrace the cross.

What is a New Month’s Resolution? Every month I look at where I need to focus my attention. Perhaps I’ve been procrastinating on certain chores. Perhaps I need to spend some extra time with one or more of the kids. Perhaps I’d like to try a new habit. New Month’s Resolutions are not grandiose plans to lose ten pounds or declutter the entire house or give up smoking (of course, I don’t smoke, but if I did, this would not be the venue in which I would give it up). New Month’s resolutions are short-term commitments; they are easily attained goals; they focus on what is needed right now, instead of what is best for a lifetime.

Do you have a new month’s resolution?

  1. I don’t believe we had an update to the August (?) resolution about the beer? Are you a convert or have you reverted to tea totaler?

  2. I can’t say I’m a convert, but I can at least tolerate beer and routinely take sips of hubby’s. Right now, though, hubby is “drinking” Percocet and beer is off limits. Perhaps by next week, when he’s off the drugs and his new kegerator is loaded, I’ll have the opportunity to fall in love with the German beer we’ll be stocking.

  3. Oh dear! I forgot all about this!!! And you know what, I’m going to take up that cross right alongside you, my friend…perhaps a post later… πŸ™‚

  4. A kegerator! David’s been saying he needs one of those for months now. πŸ™‚
