    Do you do them?

    Sometimes I will have friends and family write them down on two sheets of paper... they keep one, I get the other. About Christmas I send them their resolutions from the year before with a card.

    I think it's like goal setting, unless it's written down and put in a place where you can regularly see it, it's just a wish.

    Who has resolutions/goals for 2009? Are they specific?

    Me... I'm going to get my flock back to about 20 birds.... and yet wish for a bigger coop.

    ....... oh, and I'm hoping to take off twice as much weight in '09 as I did last year.

    I would have to get dysentery for the next 6 months to get down to that.

    Ive already got a start on mine. I quit smoking in September and Ive lost just over 30 pounds. So mine is to stay smoke free, loose a little more weight. exercise more, and just get healthier overall.
