My New Year's Resolution

Hey all, I know it's been a while since I've written a post, but before I give you my lame-ass excuse for not writing first I want to talk about my new year's resolution.

I normally don't make resolutions, because I have absolutely no will power and I never, ever keep them.

But, if I do make a resolution or a promise to myself, I try to make it small so that if and when I fail it won't be a big deal.  I know I'm just setting myself up for failure.  Yeah, who the shit cares!

Come next August I will hopefully be returning to the work force and I won't be able to sit on my ass all day watching "The Price is Right."  I know I will regret not using my free time for something I really, really want to accomplish.

My New Year's Resolution this year is to finally finish the book I've been working on. I'm embarrassed to say how long I've been working on it.  Umm, so I won't.  Ha Ha.

I'm also going to try to write my blog more often.

So you want to hear my lame-ass excuse for not writing my blog?  Well, too damn bad, I'm gonna tell you anyway.

There are a number of reasons actually:
I've been non stop reading
Kicking some Candy Crush Ass
Cleaning like and OCD freak

So there you go, that's what's been so damn important.  Actually, it is very important for me to be inspired by something to be able to write about it.  A day doesn't go by that I don't think about my blog and what I should write about.  But, the way I see it is, if I'm not interested in writing about it, why would someone want to read it.

Because of my bullshit, I've lost quite a few readers, which is okay I guess.  I don't like waiting on people either.

So, do you make resolutions?  If so, do you keep them?

Thanks for reading,


  1. No worries Ellen, I will always be a reader of your blog... I usually always laugh or at least get a smile :)

    I don't make resolutions but I do make a goal and once I get to that goal, I make another... the way you say you are about OCD for cleaning, I am goal oriented...

    I hope you have an amazing 2014. I hope you find lots of inspiration in the coming year :)

  2. Thank you Launna!!! I hope you have a great 2014 too. :)

  3. I've been guilty of blog neglect myself lately so I won't cast any stones - glass houses and all.

    I haven't made a single New Year's resolution in years and I don't plan to make any this year. I'm just going to pray I find a new job before the end of 2014 instead.

  4. Glad to hear you are going back to the business world in Aug. You have too much talent to spend your days on the Price is Right. I know you did it to stay home with the kids, but they are 58 now, or is that 5 & 8 ??? Love ya

  5. I've tried to make resolutions but it is hard to keep them. My attention span isn't very long for that kind of thing. Maybe I should follow your idea and resolve to work on MY book too!

  6. I always make resolutions. Some I keep, some I don't . I'm still considering what they will be this year.
    Happy New Year!!! xxx

  7. I personally do not make New Year's resolutions. If I did in the past I don't even remember. I am so glad you started writing again I know that is your love. I wish the best for you and your love ones in 2014.


Lay it on me!
