The end of the year…time to make some New Years resolutions and check out all the “best of 2014″ lists on the interwebs!!!
New Years Resolutions…
1) Water my plants more often so they don’t die. Lost two poor souls this year. I made a ‘Water Your Plants’ alarm on my phone.
2) Dust more than once every three months.
3) Be more patient. I like getting what I want, when I want it…but that doesn’t work for everyone else in my life.
4) Spend LESS time on petty people (I could start a list…but that leads me to #5)
5) Make MORE time for people I care about. Losing someone I love to Cancer this holiday season was a healthy reminder…
