Happy New Year! Yeah, I know I really need to cover the holidays and Cora's visit and all, but I thought first it would be a good idea to get my New Year's Resolutions out there. Why? Should be an easy post, that's why.
I'm not going to do the easy ones about losing weight, eating better, or saving money. Due to certain circumstance (marrying Cora in July), I'm certain I will be eating more and better meals at home, saving me. Money and weight. So those are taking care of.
Resolution 1 – The Land Of Misfit Toys
It has always slightly bugged me that the $2 bill, the $1 coin, and the 50¢ piece were effectively unused. Circulating currency should circulate. I plan on using them in everyday situations. In fact, my first use of them was to give a pile of them to Grant Miller to cover my drinks Saturday night at the Drysdale Awards. Since then, I have used them as tips and to pay for my parking at Midway when I dropped off Cora. Still haven't broken into the coins yet.
That should be fun.
Resolution 2 – Strive To Be The Man
I firmly resolve to strive to be the fiancée/husband and "bonus dad" that Cora and her daughter deserve. There's no way I can be what they deserve, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't strive every day to be worthy of the love, faith and trust of these two fabulous women.
Resolution 3 – Claim My Fart
Whether literally accepting havoc wrought when the "unholy ghost" is unleashed, or figuratively by accepting the consequences of my errors (airs?), I resolve to claim my farts.
