My thoughts on New Years Resolutions here.
I think back on my past and cringe.
Not that there is anything horrifying in my past. (Well, there are some photos of me in a "Blossom" style hat).
Right now I'm cringing thinking of how I behaved in college.
My poor roommates.
In church I would "meow" the hymns. Never sang a word. Just meowed like a cat.
I would get oil paint on their coats when I painted in the kitchen, and oil paint doesn't really come out.
I also frequently up and decided I needed some new pants or a shirt, and would sew all night on an old, loud machine.
And I'm pretty sure when on a whim I decided to cut my hair in front of the hall mirror with some dull, goopy craft scissors, I made a huge mess.
I'm sure my roommates remember all the immaturity better than I do.
But, I roomed with some pretty amazing people. Who have all gone on to become even more amazing than they were back then.
Kate - business owner , river rafter, and amazing mom.
Audrey - my former dating coach ("men like long hair Pam"), and pretty much Martha Stewart, she is the ultimate homemaker. (her advice did work, by the way.)
Suzanne - fastidiously tidy, thoughtful, emergency room nurse with the BEST stories, mother of twins
Vanessa - the only person to make me laugh my "ugly" laugh. She is that funny.
Anne - supremely kind, witty, mother of three with a gift with words you will envy.
Girls, I probably owe you some kind of spa package, only you could have used it 12 years ago when we lived in that pink cinderblock thing we called an apartment.
Wow, it has taken me a long time to get to what this post is actually about! Today I am writing over on Anne's blog about my wacky New Years Resolution process. It makes me sound weirder than I actually am though.
**I am still passing on some awesome advice Anne gave to me in college when I wanted mint truffle hot cocoa, but only had plain. "Just go brush your teeth, then it will taste minty."
