Act 1; Scene 2: Cheesecake and Resolutions

Can you think of a better start for a New Year than home made cheesecake?
I can't.
And this was a very successful first-time cheesecake-making for me--delicious!
Or rather, cheesecake-bite-making.
Robert told me today that I have made him a fan of cheesecake.
And along with every cheesecake-eating, card game-playing, noise-making New Year
come brand new Resolutions, of course.
I am an avid fan of New Year Resolutions. What a perfect opportunity to start fresh with new goals! And if I post my resolutions here, that will give me even more motivation to keep up on them. :-) Here are mine:

1. Be on time or early for every meeting/arrangement
2. Take a few minutes every day to ponder
3. Read for pleasure

I also wanted to have at least one family goal. Here is ours:

1. Family morning prayer EVERY morning

Robert (despite my pleadings) is emphatic that he does not make New Year Resolutions. So I have secretly made some for him ;-)

Are you a Resolution-making type???

Happy New Year!


  1. i generally make new year resolutions. sometimes they'll be loosely noted and tracked in my head but other times i'll take them more seriously and actually write them down. but i have noticed that when i write them down i pay closer attention to the goal. a few of them are:

    write more
    read more
    pray more and better with added sincerity and desire
    read the book of mormon and doctrine & covenants

    p.s. you look very pretty in your picture. :-)

  2. No. I'm pretty naturally goal-oriented, and doing so at New Year's is always redundant--not that redundancy is bad (speaking of which, I just read this minutes ago: http://stancarey.wordpress.com/2011/01/04/omit-needless-criticisms-of-redundancy/ ), but "resolutions" bring out the rebel in me like reverse psychology. If I really want something to happen, I better NOT make a New Year's resolution about it.
