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!
