Can you believe it is 2014?  Doesn’t it seem like the year 2000 took forever to get here and then when it did (and our computers/banks/nuclear stations didn’t collapse) time has flown by at break-neck speed?!?  When Prince (the artist formerly known as a symbol, formerly know as Prince)  was singing about partying like it was 1999, didn’t 1999 seem like a year that we would all be wearing silver jumpsuits and driving flying cars? Now here we are knocking on the door of 2014 and guess what comes next?  Yep, 2015.  The year that Marty McFly goes to in Back to the Future.  October 21, 2015–cannot wait to see him arrive in that Delorean wearing his red puffy vest. swoon.

So, with a new year comes a slew of resolutions.  Diet.   Save.  Behave.  Drink more water.  You know, the usual stuff.  Our lesson today at church was about all of this nonsense.  Don’t get me wrong, resolutions are great–I personally hate them–but they are great nonetheless. Cary said in his sermon that resolutions are just regrets from years past.  Diet = ate too much, save = spent too much, behave = acted like a bafoon, drink more water = drank too much coffee.  You see what he means.

I am still working out the kinks on my resolution list.  Mostly because I don’t want to fail at it. Most people stop by February.  Maybe that’s when I’ll start mine and people will be all like “she is so strong in her resolve” or “dude, she has willpower” or even “she must be cheating” (jealousy is ugly people–don’t hate).

What have you all decided on for 2014?  How is it going?  Are you strong in your resolve or ready to scream and throw in the towel?  Let me hear from you!!

Happy New Year y’all!

    Don’t go bashing the Goal setters! We (the whole Trinh family) make out our resolutions every year. We all talk (while we’re eating a bowl of turnip greens & black-eyed peas) about things we need to work on and attempt to hold each other accountable! The usual stuff: eat better (more paleo…less yummyo), exercise more (consistently), be more organized…blah, blah, blah, And even if we don’t keep them ALL we are better off than we would be if we hadn’t even tried! I’m your role model aren’t I! Ha Ha Ha…I know better! 🙂
