What are your Resolutions for 2018??
1) I want to finish the food-themed embroidery pattern I’ve started… because, let’s face it, I’ve either given over to being a crafty hipster or a 105-year-old woman. Either way, it must be done.
2) I joined a media bowling league, God help me, and just once I’d like to score above 100. My nightly scores tend to range from 40-90. Mercy. Who knew I would bowl this much? Better yet, who knew I would care?
3) I want to give up my Halo Top ice cream addiction. It’s like $100 a carton and not that healthy when you eat a TON of it. Right now … my freezer has like 8 pints. No joke. I’m very, very ashamed.
