Feelin' It

I'm into Week 2 down here on the bayou and my snowy life in Colorado seems far away. I'm digging it, getting to know my nephew, Robbie, a bit more. They are so funny at this age:

Me: "I don't know, Robbie. I guess your Aunt Heather is just screwed up."
Robbie: "Well, what are you gonna do about it?"

With my Dad here too and staying in my brother's house, it means all my favorite men are in one place. It also reminds me that I am still without a man of my own and this has to change.

After every holiday, I (always) resolve to get my life together once and for all. Every year, I make small progress but it is taking forever. Hence, some random resolutions for 2009:
Don't be an asshole.
Cease all illegal activities.
Avoid travel, unless by truck, train, canoe or horse.
Date a person I like - preferably not one wearing a suit made entirely of red flags - and make time for him.
Find my destiny.

That last one is a doozy and I haven't even come near it. The topic has been weighing heavily on my mind lately and I feel I'm at the beginning of The Next Thing. Expect this to be a reoccurring theme for 2009.

1.Don't be an asshole.
No problem, I got that covered.

2. Cease all illegal activities.
How about just illegal activities that ought to be illegal?

3. Avoid travel, unless by truck, train, canoe or horse.
True dat.

4. Date a person I like - preferably not one wearing a suit made entirely of red flags - and make time for him.
Great line about the red flags. Good luck!

5. Find my destiny.
Never happen. Our destinies find us. Anyhow, destiny's root word is destination - I wouldn't be in any hurry to get there, because once you're there, then what?

I like your take on #2 - seems reasonable.

As for the destiny, I have to disagree. As I've told you before, I've got more in me to give and my life was not meant to be spent doing corporate PR - I'm pretty sure of it.

Fang took my thoughts on #2 right outta my mouth.

I love your list! I am making up my own this year, and will do my very best to stick with them.

Like do more illegal but should legal activities.

And find the keys to my savings deposit box ... bastard keys.

Glad you are having some quality fam time.

Everytime I am around my Dad/Brothers I'm reminded what quality men look like. They are out there although it takes some legwork to find them....or luck for them to find you.

Happy New Year's! I haven't made my resolutions yet. Maybe I should do that tonight? While drinking. That'll make it more interesting at least. :)

Heath, liked your resolutions for 09. A Teager tradition is to sit around a table on NY Eve, and go over last year's resolutions to see how one fared in attaining his or her goals. 2 of my favorites for 09: From Devin: Be able to eat 3 hot dogs with bun.
From Emma: Stop farting at the dinner table.
Maybe starting with the small things will lead to the big summits?

I'm with Gumdrop - I need to cease farting at the table. It's a great plan but I won't hold my breath or ... wait, maybe I should.

She and D are on to something. Maybe I should start small.
