Monday Memoir - Week 14

I think we're finally on the mend from our holiday bug.  Just in time for school adn work to kick back in.  I do feel it's a blessing we all go sick when we had the luxury to deal with it rather than having to try get things done while feeling yuck.

Here are the Monday Memoir questions – pop by, check them out, and link back up on …

1. How did your family spend New Years Day?  How do you spend it now?

2.  Do you make New Year's Resolutions?  Which ones were you able to keep?  Which ones do you find you make, but don't follow through on?

1. How did your family spend New Year’s Day? How do you spend it now?

I don’t remember my family doing anything special for New Year’s Day. We always stayed up until midnight to watch the ball drop, and then went to bed. The next day, however, I don’t remember anything special.

New Year’s Eve we got a bunch of chips and drinks. We’d play games and then make noise to ring in the New Year. I remember buying my mom new aluminum bowls for Christmas one year. We took them outside to bang on with spatulas. Then came back in all dented up. Doh!

Our family does pretty much the same thing now except for the making noise part. I'm excited to see Dick Clark still ringing in the year, even if it's clearly hard for him.  Bless him.

2. Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Which ones were you able to keep? Which ones do you find you make, but don't follow through on?

A couple of years I’ve made the resolution to lose weight. Fortunately, OCD works very well for me here. When I get my mind set on something (like only eating so many calories), I’m good at sticking to it. That is until I reach a plateau. OCD people need results. When the results stop, so does the motivation.

This year – I resolve to have no resolutions. I’ll take the year as it comes and figure out what needs doing when it hits. At least, that’s the plan for now. :-)

  1. Hi April! I missed (for the second time) participating in Memoir Mondays. :( I'll try to do better next week. :) We all had the flu the week before Christmas, and we've been slow to recover. I'm trying to get back to blogging regularly after taking some time off while we were all sick. We are all better now, though, and I'm glad that you and your family are too. I'll see you next Monday with my post.


Thank you for commenting - I love to hear your thoughts!
