skipping right along ..


     the Little Lamb thought I was a bit early with my Christmas post down below.   But then she also had the excellent idea of skipping Christmas altogether .. except for the presents.  but, i've already been telling folks  that i really don't want anything...
 soooo, if i don't get anything, she'll have to give me hers.... 

anyways ... skipping Christmas  means i can jump right into my resolutions for the new year, right? 

to tell the truth, i'm  really not in the habit of making new year's resolutions since i never keep them.  since these technically are not new year's resolutions  ..... well .. maybe i'll keep these? ... we shall see ...

and here goes nothing ..

foam resolution ..

#1:  avoid large discount retailers,  indoor malls at all cost for the next six weeks.  That should be easy.  I accomplished that last year.  heck, it's been a few years since i've even been to an indoor mall.

 #2:  send out Christmas cards.  that'll be hard.  haven't done that in a couple of years.

#3:  don't gain weight.  that'll be very, very hard ... sigh ...

#4:  take daily walks to avoid weight gain .. ugh, okay .. 

# 5: eat healthy foods and take my daily vitamin ... ugh, okay ..

#6: make the 3 males in my life do most of the housework .. (what an epiphany!)

#7:  be really, really, really nice to my beloved spouse so he won't notice that i have this plot going on to make him and the boys  do most of the housework.  (actually, he, the spouse already does quite a bit, to be fair.  but i want it to be unfair .. i don't want to do any.)

#8: laugh in the face of stress ..  ech .. i'll try ..

#9:  be nice and kind to folks .. ugh! .. okaaaay, i guess i can do that .. tsk .. 
even if it means that little lamb can keep her gifts ..

#10:  .............. hmmmmmmmmm .. don't know anymore...
 .. maybe sit on santa's lap and whisper sweet nothings into his ear?

Be sure to not gain wait before sitting on Santa's lap.

And if you do all the house work and if you can do it without resorting to any appliance that wouldn't have existed in the last 200 years you might lose weight and can sit on Santa's lap.

Rather than make resolutions to do things that you have always failed to do in the past, why not resolve to do the things that you already do but better?

Just a thought.

ANNA-LYS said...

The blogosphere breathe stress,
don't forget to enjoy life!


dianne said...

I dont make resolutions...I just make wishes for myself and those I love for a year ahead filled happiness,joy and good health. ♥

dianne said...

and being able to write a sentence without leaving out words. ;-) ♥

Little Lamb said...

Sorry, but I'm keeping my presents. You can't have them! They're all mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!

ANNA-LYS said...

sorry, I meant bedroom, as You wrote above,where Your blooming husband was snoozing. *giggle*

foam said...

1. i will keep santa's lap in mind as i try not to gain weight.
2. doing all the housework? that'a a really, really, really bad idea. tsk ..

it's a great thought, actually. you are so sensible .. in a good way.
hmmmmm, let's see what i could do ..
i'm already good at being not nice. i could be even not nicer! yeah ... ;)

no worries .. i'll enjoy life. actually the blogosphere is where i generallly destress ..
put that tongue back in your mouth, girl! .. lol ..

yeah, those are good wishes. may those all come true for you. and no worries .. my mind automatically filled in that missing word ..
and i'm just the worse with stuff like that.

little lamb,

yeah, lol ..
i guess my comment at your site was confusing.
the plant is in the bedroom. the couch containing a snoozing spouse is in the livingroom. the couch at present is still in the livingroom .. the spouse in the bedroom .. sound asleep ..

ANNA-LYS said...

My one and only resolution for next year is to keep writing, writing, writing for MD... even if it is going to kill me ... as for housework? I do as little as possible... life is too short.


HLiza said...

Those are hard, hard things to accomplish for the new year.. mine are still unaccomplished after many years!

foam said...


middle ditch ..
housework? i do as little as possible too, actually ..
to die for your art .. that's not so bad, eh?

foam said...

hliza ..
hmmmmmmm ... maybe you are right ..

Echo said...

Go backward: enjoy Christmas, forget the presents. When people ask me what I want, I tell them a massage, that way they can keep it cheap by doing it themselves.

Forget resolutions, they are like rules, made to be broken.

Santa's lap? Well as long as it's not that grinning dued in the comemrcials, he's scary.

foam said...

echo ...
i hardly ever take my resolutions that seriously ..
i break them all the time ..
without guilt ..

but, you know ..
that massage is a good idea. i'll want foot rubs too though .. :)

Lady Prism said...

*ha!ha!ha!ha!ha! to SJ's suggestions!

Fabulous resolutions! Most particularly about making the 3 mals do most of the work hee!hee! Shhh..but I have mastered a certain "style" that makes it appear I am all swamped up and ready to expire. It never fails to make my husband volunteer to do the dishes or bark orders for the boys to do it..he!he!he!' bad.

foam said...

prism ..
you HAVE to let me in on your "style" .... !

X. Dell said...

Whispering sweet nothing in Santa's ear? You'll confuse him. You want him to think that you're naughty AND nice?

Seems like #6 isn't a resolution you can do on your own. I would suggest NLP or narcohypnosis. Actually, you might have to start your own cult.

foam said... ..
yeah, why not? my santa lives at home after all..
narcohypnosis, eh? i'll look into it .. :)
and the cult thing perhaps ..
