Dissolving the Resolving


We are far enough into January that most of us should have given up on the last of our New Year’s resolutions by now.

If not, you still have a few days left before people begin to think you are just being difficult and so begin to shun you.

The sooner you chuck those resolutions overboard, the better off we will all be.   That way, the airship of our hopes and dreams can then gain altitude and go on to our scheduled mooring point in Lakehurst, New Jersey.

For example, you may remember that I resolved to post more blogs in the new year.

Well, here we are ten days into January and this is only my third post.  Also, it has been a full week since my last post.

What does this tell us?

It tells us that New Year’s resolutions, much like Ferrero Rocher chocolates received as gifts at Christmas, rarely make it past January 2.

It also tells us that it was a fool’s errand to think I would be writing and posting more in this new year.  After all, if I did not do any writing or posting over the holidays when I actually had time to do it, what chance do I have now that Real Life™ has resumed in earnest and my every waking moment is consumed with minutia and miscellany and triviality and inconsequentiality?

Well, after reading this post, I think you know the answer to that as much as I do.




  1. I love the comparison with the Ferraro roche ……yes that’s me and my resolutions…my chocolate too and considering that fir year my resolution for loosing weight it says it all😂😂😂😂😂

  2. I’m not big on resolutions, but I’m picking an easy one for this year. I resolve to read and write LESS. Hopefully, that’ll leave more time for other things.

    Or here’s another easy one: let’s resolve to read and write blogs when it’s fun to do so. The heck with schedules.

  3. Biff Sow Pow I’d read your posts (when I’m out here blog-hopping) if you only wrote 1 a month. You are truly funny in a humorous, comical, rad, creative, kooky, way. Your skill placing words inside paragraphs, then crowning them with punctuation is impressive. Now, what you do with most of your resolutions is totally up to you.

    But…Please don’t resolve to close your blog before say, 2050. That way, I can keep my resolution to stop blog-hopping before then. Thanks and Happy Prosperous New Year! 🙂

    • Wow, Jen … thank you so much! I believe that is one of the kindest and most supportive things anyone has ever said to me. I’m truly grateful for your encouragement.

      And not to worry … I’m not going to give up blogging any time soon. I’ve been doing it all this time with nothing really to say, so at least I don’t have to worry about running out of material! Ha ha!

      Have a wonderful weekend, and a happy and prosperous new year, too!


    • I’m the same. Even my promise to myself to blog more was satisfyingly vague. What would constitute “more”? An extra post a month? That would be easy-peasy. An extra post a week? Let’s not get crazy!

      And best of all, there is no one auditing my posts and penalizing me if my blogging quantity declines. That’s why I love non-quantifiable goals.
