I've never been one for New Years Resolutions. Time is something that waits for no man.  Children grow up.  We age.  I'm one for making Life Changes (i.e. weight loss, grow your hair long, be a better person), but why wait until Jan 1? I did find a list that I thought we all could enjoy.  Most of these are from happywink.org, and I added a few myself.  Bon apetite!
  • Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my nightdress. Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom.
  • I will no longer waste my time relieving the past, instead I will spend it worrying about the future.
  • I will not bore my boss by with the same excuse for taking leaves. I will think of some more excuses.

  • I will stop sending e-mail, ICQ, Instant Messages and be on the phone at the same time with the same person.

  • I will read the manual... just as soon as I can find it.
  • I will think of a password other than "password."
  • I will not tell the same story at every get together.
  • I won't worry so much.
  • I will cut my hair.
  • I will grow my hair.
  • I will stop considering other people's feelings when they so obviously don't consider mine - if that unwashed fellow sits next to me again, I'll tell him he stinks!
  • I will be more imaginative.
  • I will not hang around girls - they think you love them and that sucks.

  • I will see how many licks it takes to get to the center of the tootsie pop

  • I will bake cookies from scratch... not from one of those pre-made bags in the baking aisle
  • I will not cheat on the game of Monopoly
  • I will not test monkeys in order to make them geniuses

  • I will use my poster that says "bang head here"
  • I will use my excercise machine for more than just a coat rack
  • I will clean the oven
  • I will upgrade my Fake Smile to a Pissy Grin
  • I resolve to stop throwing tv remotes at my husband when I am mad
  • I vow to save our populating planet, by telling ugly stupid people to not reproduce
  • I will make my husband stop eating cookies in bed
  • I will microwave less and bake more
  • I will clean out my car when I'm doing using it

  • I will stop

    I pledge to do what twin blogged for me.
    I will also remember to wear clean workout clothes when playing WOW so I can admit to 'getting ready to workout', not just gaming when asked.

    I pledge to only contact Twin and Sissypoo 20 x's a day instead of the 40 that I normally do...

      Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...


      Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)

      I would like your thoughts, help, comments, feedback. I am not a robot!

      No matter how serious life gets, you still gotta have that one person you can be completely stupid with 

      I STALK THESE....

      THE MRS
