December 31 Resolution you wish you'd stuck with. (You know, there's always next year...)
"There's always next year" isn't a promise anyone can make, and the older I get, the more aware I am of the scarcity of years in the forward direction.
And "There's always last year" is fairly guaranteed, but I'm starting to lose my memory, too!
So... resolutions. I had one last year. For a dozen years before that my resolution was made and kept all year. Simple:
But in 2009, I had a serious resolution, and I announced it, and that was that every day in 2009 I was going to spend 15 minutes more, each day, doing something to help unschoolers than I would have done otherwise. So every day for nine months and some I did that, conscientiously, and in September I ended up wounded and in the bed and on drugs and some days I didn't do it. In October I perked up and kept on with the fifteen minutes a day thing, but sometime in November I let it slide. So I didn't make it all year, but it was still a lot of extra-fifteen-minuteses.
