Resolutions are flexible things...

Since Wednesday, I've managed to break or begin four of my resolutions...

00. Stop drinking Coke? What was I thinking? Besides, most people don't offer water when you visit and it simply isn't polite to refuse.
06. Painting attempted. I think I destroyed a canvas. Thank goodness they're cheap...maybe my artistic side is much more latent than I realized.
08. Accepted an invitation to Noadia's church for an acquaintance's birthday party. Had fun...got invited to another service on Saturday night. Note: I am intimidating to young Brazilian girls who think that the tall American is going to steal their boyfriends away with her blue eyes. I will have to work hard to overcome their insecurities and gain some friends...or at least, avoid making enemies!
09. Spruced up the house this morning, cleaned my room, cleaned the bathroom, washed clothes and dishes, all before 10:00 am. Not bad. Not bad at all.

I haven't even made any resolutions recently, since I know I'll break them. I considered giving up coffee or cheese - but I just couldn't imagine life without them. I congratulate you for even making so many resolutions!

isn't that what you do when you try to redo your life after a relationship goes down the tubes?!? resolutions make us feel better...or maybe it's just the list making...but please, if you have to give up something, don't let it be cheese!
