Please pass the Pledge ... my blog is dusty.

I'm falling behind.  Horribly.  The amount of dust lying on this blog is almost embarrassing.  That is why it is among my top 5 New Year's Resolutions.  I am typically against resolutions.  Not against them, but just not all about them.  Why have to wait until the New Year to make a valiant effort to do something more or less or better ... why not do that at any point in the year?  And - if I'm being honest - I have to admit that I was never a fan of putting something 'out there' that I wanted to do in the New Year, then fail on delivery year after year.

But this year is different.  Because after some of the events at the end of 2009, I really do feel that the New Year is a great time for a fresh start.  So here are my five New Year's Resolutions.  They're rather simple, but that is how I would like life to be right now.  Simple.

  1. Read the entire Bible, Genesis to Revelations.
  2. Handwrite more letters to those without email: Grandma, Aunt Carol ... and even those with email.  A nice, handwritten letter can be a real treat to the recipient.
  3. Stop biting my nails.  (I started this last night with a simple, home manicure)
  4. Blog more frequently - a minimum of once a week.  (Baby steps, people ... baby steps)
  5. Lose 5 more pounds (did you really think there'd be a resolution list free of a weight loss resolution??)
So how about you?  What are YOUR top five resolutions for twenty-ten?
