I thought I would do something fun once a week. Along with my posting, I am going to post a “men’s meme” that runs from Monday to Monday hosted by Families Again and my husband will provide his answer to the meme. I’m going to add some testosterone to my blog! If you want to participate or have your husband participate, just click the button below, sign up on the Linky and make your posting.
So we will start with hubbins first…age before beauty.
So Tom’s question is…
Do you make New Year’s resolutions? If not, why not? If so, what are they?
I do not make New Year’s resolutions because I am philosophically opposed to committing outside of a family or group context. If there isn’t any accountability and not a requirement for me to fulfill for an exact purpose, it isn’t worth it to me.
When I was forty years old and had six children ranging from the ages of one to sixteen, I decided to complete my graduate degree in one year and work full time. I look back in awe and can’t imagine ever doing it again. I can’t believe I did it then and I don’t think anyone else can either.
Consequently, I’m allergic to books, paper, ink…seriously! On the bright side, I learned to read quickly and write more concisely with less editing; I had little time for rewrites. Ironically, this led to licensure in a profession that requires me to write an accounting of all my patient care and obtain forty class hours of continuing education each year. Good thing I didn’t think about that in advance.
I just made a New Year’s resolution to be more patient, tolerant, vigilant and regularly post in the Men’s Meme…even if it kills me…
