    I normally don't keep mine, but I still make them anyways. Last year I vowed to stop biting my nails and worked really hard to accomplish that. This year I want to:

    Make Dean's list again
    Lose some weight before graduation and splurge on a great dress
    Get a good job
    Move out of my parent's house (maybe)
    Try out gardening again and hope it works this time
    Make a bed quilt

    What resolutions are you all going to make?

    [​IMG]I tried in 2008 to buy as little as possible of Chinese made products. I am still very concious of it today but have slid a bit. So I like your ideas. I will add: Exercise more and give myself more me time, esp. if it means just sitting with the chickies.[​IMG]

    I Love your resolutions

    My main resolution is to be thankful for the little things,
    Appreciate all things as I have learned much
    from what life brought my way this year. Much of which I fought
    until I learned to accept.

    The one thing that helps me to Accept more is the phrase
    "This is my new normal"
    Happy New Year and just so you know, I am thankful for
    all you BYC folks who have contributed to many smiles
    during my reluctance to acceptance.

    Peace to you and yours in 2013 [​IMG]:>

    To buy "Made in USA," if I buy new.
    To buy local.
    To buy used, second hand as much as possible.
    Decrease waste, and get rid of excess.
    To eat organic as much as possible.

    To have more fun this year than I had last year.
