I want to lose 15 lbs.  Actually, I really need to lose 20-25 lbs.  But, if I can lose 15, I'll consider my resolution accomplished.  Everything else is icing on the cake....or maybe some other less caloric analogy!

I'm with you Charlie!!  Sorry Minh - no resolutions here either.  I just keep trying to be a better person in my life, but that usually a daily thing... :-D

    My New Years Resolution is to learn more about Elvis Presley and buy some of his CD's.  A friend at work played one of his Christmas CD's and it turns out I like Elvis!  I never really tried to listen to him before now so I didn't know  :)

    I've been thinking about mine for some time. I come from a non-comunicative family, and I've been increadibly depressed the past few years. Between the two I don't think I've said enough nice things to my girlfriend. I'm no longer depressed and I've been thinking about what I put her through during that time.

    So - my new years (and before) resolution is to tell her more ofton how I feel about her, to thank her when she makes dinner or does other things for me, and to talk to her more.

    Happy New and Gay Year!!

    Well, seeing that my girlfriend is a saver and I'm a spender, my goal is to not spend money on extra stuff.

    Also, we've got at least a hundred unread books on the shelf, so we've both resolved ourselves to more reading in 2008.  And then, of course, I'll be trading those books for new ones.  :)

    BUT, my biggest goal this year is to get my digital feature film into production by May.

    Yay Jessie!! :D  Hope you guys find a perfect donor! (BTW, start taking folic acid now if you haven't already. :)

    Mine basically revolve around trying to be a better parent and more healthy, overall.  I have some major weight to lose and I want to increase my stamina - J runs circles around me now.  I may try to join the Y again, if I can get the stinker to stay in the daycare there.

    You're so good Jessie...I never took prenatal vitamins or folic acid...they were like horse pills and they made me so sick.  I did drink an outrageous amount of orange juice though so maybe that made up for it.  Who knows. Just don't get too stressed out about the whole thing - that more than anything can make things hard.  Relax and enjoy the journey.

    As for resolutions...I don't really make them - they seem to be the thing you say on New Years eve and then break by valentines day.  They just never held any momentum for me.  I think I more have goals that are just on a continual loop throughout the years....never really ending or begining...

    Be the best mom I can be - I'll make mistakes but I'm doing my best.


    more travel!

    Read more books than I read the year before or at least stay within the same range and if not I hope that its due to something fabulous.

    learn something new

    smile, laugh and enjoy what I have in life...its a lot and its wonderful.
