In 2007, I'm going to give up being gay. I'm tired of being asked if I'm a Priest. Just because I say, "On your knees my son," doesn't mean I'm a Priest.

I'm planning on living 2007 by leaving everything negative, and that didn't work behind in 2006, and taking everything positive and that did work in to 2007.  I plan on socialising more, considering the last year has been a case of pushing my friends away and being rather elusive...  I'll keep working on eating healthy, exercising and getting my life back that I put on hold.

Having said that.. there is still 5 days left of self orbiting pity parties, junk food and sitting on the couch so I am going to make the most of it haha.

Hi Queenie

My only resolution for this year and every year from here on in is to live long enough to spend the kids inheritance.

I hope 2007 will be a good one for you.

Hugs

     Really try to continue evolving the wisdom I've acquired from life, and the intuition which results from it.  I still need to do better in terms of seeing things how they really are, in lieu of how I would wish they were.  It's not easy to do.

As a Christmas bonus, my job paid for a six months YMCA membership.  Yea!

So it's back to the gym for this old tired guy.......

Oh, and a 'carry-over' resolution (from 2005 in fact) is still to GET ORGANIZED.
My apt. needs to be 'stripped' and reworked, closets, drawers, etc.    Just typing that sentence made me tired......so can't say how that one will turn out.

The B.F. bought me a new DayRunner organizer/calendar, so that will help me get my appts. and schedules organized!

Hugs,

Alan

Alan when you get done with your place, you are more than welcome to help me with mine. I got tired reading your post. Like quitting smoking, I would fail that one too. Lord knows I really need to do it, more so than quit smoking. If it gets any messier I'll just bust a bale of straw and spread it on the floor.  :D
