Yes, I write them every year
I mean to keep them, too.
Lose 10 pounds, Get in shape
Eat correctly - I really mean to do.
Decluttering my closets, Cleaning my grout,
Scrubbing, Dusting, and Sweeping,
In general, do a better job
as I go about housekeeping.
Organize my stash and pattern collection,
Sort through my thread, ribbon, and lace,
Always clean after every project
& put everything in its place.
But - if I do all of these things
When will I ever be done?
When will I ever sleep?
When will I ever have fun?
Resolutions that I'll keep
are the ones I'll make this time.
To sew, read, draw, and paint,
& occasionally make a rhyme.
To keep posting on my blog
& stay in touch with friends.
I'll learn to Skype with my grands
& emails I promise to send.
The most important goal I'll make
Is the one that's easiest to keep.
I'll love my family with every breath
& in my heart's every beat.
Happy 2010!!! To All!!!!
I hope to get started sewing again next week!
