Before the new year arrived I was hearing a lot about whether to make resolutions. Some suggested that instead of making resolutions make goals. I'm not exactly sure what the difference is. Others chose to have nothing to do with any of it. My sister-in-law has been simplifying her life by downsizing her belongings and eliminating activities she doesn't find fulfilling, a laudable goal and I am inspired by her. So, I pondered that for a bit. If I had made resolutions/goals/whatever they would be the usual. You know, eat healthier, exercise more, blog more, clear some clutter, learn all sorts of new things - a language, perhaps. Actually the mere act of going through this list makes me cranky. A new year does make me want to begin something new and different. Unlike my sister in-law I kind of like stuff. Except the stuff in this drawer. It is a mess. My resolution, it turns out, is to clean out this kitchen drawer. Perhaps tomorrow.
