I Resolve To Not...

It’s sort of become a tradition for me to list things that I resolve NOT to do before New Years. It just seems easier seeing as most people break their resolutions after a day. Or two.

So here are some things that I resolve NOT to do…

I resolve to not...stop making fun of Justin Bieber, Twilight, Jersey Shore, etc…it’s just too easy to make a joke about those things.

I resolve to not...let the kids watch Family Guy anymore. It was embarrassing when we went into a store and Natalie was like, “Look! It’s Peter! And Quagmire! Giggity!”

I resolve to not...stop buying Little Debbie snacks. Parenting magazines can keep trying to make me feel guilty about this but it won’t work. Everyone needs an Oatmeal Cream Pie once in awhile. Maybe that’s why some parents are so uptight. They just need some good old fashioned sugar instead of that edamame crap.

I resolve to not...stop cursing on the road. If people would stop driving like idiots, I wouldn’t have to call them foul names.

I resolve to not...stop posting about shows on Facebook. If you don’t want to know the ending of something, STAY OFFLINE until you watch said program. It’s what I do.

I resolve to not...stop going to the gym. I had been going so I could fit into my wedding dress. Now that I no longer need to worry about squeezing into it, I’m not as worried about going. Still. I’ll try and pop in twice per week. Although I might want to avoid doing so the first few weeks of January until the people who resolved to lose weight get bored and stop going and taking over the machines..

I resolve to not...cease calling people who text and drive a danger on the road. They are. They can say, “Oh, I can do both just fine!” until their face turns blue but I know the truth. One day they’ll either kill or injure someone.

See you in 2012!


  1. Ooh, I hate all those January people at the gym too. I call them Resolutioners. They'll be gone by February 1.

  2. Oatmeal cookies.. yummm! I think I need one for lunch now. haha.. and yes the gym people annoy me. But on the flip side.. people wear the craziest things to the gym. I love the lady who works out in hats that look like shes ready for the kentucky derby. =)

  3. Great list and stick to your guns! Especially the texting while driving! It's really bad.

  4. I use to love going to the gym b/c it was a women only gym... then it closed, now I haven't found one I like yet. :o(

  5. Hmmm... this is a good idea... it might even catch on.


  6. I love Little Debbie. She calls to me from her tiny shelf in the store. And sometimes I must give in! :-) Happy New Year!

  7. Texting while driving is illegal here in CA, as it should be. I am not a fan of multitasking while driving.

  8. I love me a Hostess cupcake every once in awhile. It won't kill me:)

  9. PEOPLE WHO TEXT AND DRIVE!!! My blood pressure just went up at the thought. What could be more distracting??? Assholes.

  10. I love everyone of your resolves to NOT.
    Especially the texting/driving one.
    I want to mack people across the head when they do that.

  11. These are great!! To resolve to NOT do stuff...genius! :)

  12. Texting and driving is illegal here. 'Nuff said.

    This year I decided to pick two random products a month and ensure that


    is printed on the back before I buy them.

    My plan is to create jobs and boost the economy one bar of soap at a time. :)

  13. That is a great list! And much more positive to list the things you won't give up and a list of all the sacrifices we imposes on ourselves. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  14. Sort of the anti-resolution list. Love it! You're such a rebel!!

  15. I resolve to not eat my young.....

  16. I love this! It is a new look to New Years Resolutions!! :-D Found your blog through SITS and can't wait to continue reading.


Thanks for the comment!
