My Other Resolution

Lest you think my previous resolution was a joke, let me assure you it wasn’t. I won’t be doing that again this year. But I did actually make another resolution, and this is significant because I don’t make them anymore (at least I didn’t while everybody else was; now that everyone else has stopped, I’ve started again…or something like that).

I decided my friendships were too cyber in nature and that I needed to be proactive about involving myself in the real lives of women around me. I started by inviting a few gals over tomorrow night to (giggle) play some games. This is funny because it totally sounded like a fourth grade invitation (so do you want to come over on Friday and play some games with me?) but I did it. I think three ladies are coming. Maybe four. It will be fun. It will.

My other resolution is to (gasp) pick up the phone and call friends I don’t get to see anymore at least once a month. I started today by calling my good friend Heather in Denver. I think she was surprised to hear from me. I’m guessing this because I had to wait for her to pick herself up off the floor after she fell down upon hearing it was me on the phone (okay, I’m kidding about that last part).

It was super to catch up with her again, and she joked that she hopes she makes it back into my rotation before August. I hope so, too.

So, I’m declaring 2008 to be the year of the live people interaction, blog be darned. That doesn’t mean I won’t still write on my blog, but I won’t be depending on my blog as my main source of human interaction.

That’s what I’m resolving for this year – along with the obligatory pledge to lose 15 more pounds (that darn Santa gave me 5 for Christmas; worse than coal, that), play with my children more, and read my Bible every day (I’m 2 for 2 right now and crossing my fingers).
2008. The race is on!

    What a great resolution! Two friends and I have resolved to go to the movies together every month. Hopefully, we’ll keep it.

    My wife used to be a part of a “Bunco” group. Several ladies got together each month to play, chat, snack . . . and gossip–I mean enjoy adult conversation. It was truly a monthly highlight for her. I hope your GGN–Girls Game Night went goes well!! πŸ™‚

    great resolution! i find there is nothing that substitutes for human contact. i think that is one of the big reasons i find winters to be so difficult. everyone just stays in (including me) and i don’t see people for days. talk about depressing! m

    LOL- that is a great resolution. I really must do the same. We have lived in this town for over a year and we still only know one couple who comes over to the house and they have no children. I think they get a little overloaded by our six. Haha. They keep coming back anyway. πŸ™‚
    Have fun and laugh lots!

    I really need to do this as well. I have actually talked about it with a few other homeschool moms. We’re thinking more of a craft night, but there may be the occassional goofing off/game playing. πŸ˜‰
