New Years Resolutions....

You know, I had one New Years Resolution this year. No, it wasn't to lose some pounds. I use to make that one every year and ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm welllllllllllllllllllllllllll


CAN I HELP IT IF ICE CREAM SPEAKS TO ME???? AND PEANUT M&Ms?!?!?!?!!! They haunt me in the middle of the night. I finally had to face facts. I, my friends, am a lot of woman. There. I said it. Hmph. I told the hubby he is a lucky lucky man cause I give him something to hold onto. What could he say?? :) So now I feel like I want to do the treadmill every day so I can be healthy not dread it cause I feel like I HAVE to get on there.


Anyway, my one....count em...ONE resolution was to keep tracks of how many books I read in 09. I read a lot. I mean a lot. It is my passion. I loves me some books. I've always wondered how many I can read in a year. This was going to be my year to be astounded at my reading prowess. I tell the kids all the time I am a reading savant and should be marvelled at. So far no one is marvelling but I know my time is coming. In fact I should tell them that the time is nigh....hold on and I'll report what they say....



My 16 year old rolled her eyes. I am hoping that one day she will roll them right out of her head.
That will teach her she should marvel me when I need to be marvelled. The hubby? He agreed that the time was nigh and marvelled a little.



The whole point of this post is to ask you all this one leeeetle question....who do you think forgot all about her resolution by January 2nd?? Who do you think remembered while she was in the library looking at books today?? Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd that would be me.

Is anyone marveling at me now??

Uh oh!!!! I made this resolution last year and kept it but was terribly upset when I realised just how few books I read last year. I used to be such a big reader but somehow life has got in the way but I really miss it!! Am keeping a record again this year and the count so far is even worse!!

bawahwhahahaha. But I do think could just keep a log for a couple-a-three months, average 'em and then estimate how many you must have read over the course of 12 months. It totally counts.

No one has to know! It is still early in the year, you can figure it out. I think we should have like a contest. Everyone guess how many books we think that Dawn can read and on January 1, 2010, we will find out! We need a prize, a quilt magazine, better yet, a quilt!

Here's the 411, if you are a moon person, the lunar new year started just a couple of weeks ago. The calendar year doesn't work for us moon people! If you say it without hesitation and some authority, is completely believable!

You reminded me that I'm behind again on updating my shelf at Shefari.

It's easier with the Kindle to keep track of what I've read...but then there are all those books that people send me that I read too.

We are secret sisters I believe. Last year I did a 50 book challenge with a friend over on Good Reads (http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/201110) where it is easy to keep track of what you read. Think I finished about 75 and I didn't start until end February. This year I am actually signed up for a 100 book challenge and have about 9 recorded with 4 to add to the list. I'll send you that site in email.
