Three Little Words

The folks at Trifecta have challenged us to write a three-word New Year's resolution.

Oh, man. I can think of a bazillion.

Finish that novel.
Drink less booze.
Go to church.
Don't overwhelm myself.
Say "no" more.
Say "yes" more.
F*cking swear less.

Hubs offered a suggestion: "Don't hit people." I didn't appreciate the implication that I'm violent, so I smacked him.

In the end, I guess I really need to:

Just do better.

  16. Sitting at the airport in Toronto, waiting for my ride to show up so, what to do, what to do.......I know, read some good resolutions. If I was being honest, I think I prefer, "F*cking swear less" but, your final choice is fairly all-encompassing, too. Good choice. Happy New Year, Ivy! :)

    1. Haha! Oh, Tom; I look forward to your comments. Your words always makes me smile. Two days of 2014 are in the can, and I've already failed f*cking miserably with the swearing thing. Saying naughty words is just so ... fun. :)

      Thanks for the continued support. I hope this new year brings you great things!
