New Years Resolutions..........How Silly

Laugh More: People have told me that I laugh too much. I am not a big fan of those people!
Therefore, I intend to laugh more in 2011.

Read, Read, Read: I love to read and I can read 5 books all at once...........since, I read much already, it would be silly to include it on my list!

Learn New Recipes: This year I will be inspired to learn to make something new in the kitchen. It is unlikely that I will ever be a chef......however, dreams make us feel free.

I will have my daughter Mackenzie teach me some Swahili as "my dream trip" is to visit AFRICA!

Master an Australian accent: I would love to go to Australia someday too.

I will no longer waste time re-live-ing my past, instead I will worry about the future! Ha Ha Ha.

I won't worry so much! You never stop worrying about your grown children and them sweet grandbabies.

I will try to figure out why I have three email addresses.

I will be more imaginative.

I will TRY to be more spontaneous!

I will care more for others and not be judgemental.

I will be more patient with others and myself!

I will try to not be "my own worst critic"!

I will spend less time on FACEBOOK..............seriously!

I will work on my "bucketlist"! That includes seeing Tony Bennett and Johnny Mathis in concert!

I will continue reading my David J. Ridges books..."The Book of Mormon Made Easier" series.

I will spend more time on my Genealogy! I will continue writing my family history!

I will spend less time on Facebook ( I know I have already said that).......and really I mostly use it to visit with my High School friends and my family that I live so far away from!..........ok I do have a virtual farm that I have to tend to and how silly is that? Remember, I am an Iowa farm girl? How does the saying go? You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl! I am just trying to justify facebook again.

Most of all I will be sillier this year and I will dance when no one is watching! But I have been known to be seen "rocking out while driving down main street"...because it just feels so darn good and it makes me feel so alive!

You have a great list. I too have been told that I am too silly. I will also be reading more books, my life just got easier with a Kindle. I read many books at the same time also. As far as facebook I gave up my life on the farm to join the Mafia. Happy New Years!
