I always love the clean slate that comes with a fresh year. All mistakes of the previous year are waved off with the excuse, "Well, that was last year. THIS year will be different." Hence, resolutions.
On the sleepy airport shuttle ride back to my snowy cave last night, I thought about what I'd like to change about my life, about myself, about the world. As mentioned, I'm going to make a quasi-vegetarian effort (fish OK) this year - for nutritional and personal reasons. I am a naturally hungry, lusty gal so we'll see how well I do here.
It occurred to me last night, I should also cut down on my swearing. For fuck's sake, is it really necessary? Makes me sound colorful but angrier than I actually am. Also, I'd like to include more children in my life so this may be a requirement.
Thankfully, this resolution does not apply to blogging.
