Keepable New Year's Resolutions

We all know that most New Year's resolutions are things we would like have happen, like stopping smoking or losing weight, but they require a lot of unpleasant effort. And so generally they go by the wayside before very long.

But there must be something each of us has been wanting to do that we would actually enjoy, and have been meaning to do.

This year I resolve we go on a cruise to Alaska. Have wanted to do it for years but never have. Think we will really enjoy it.

Have you got any?

I'm going to help get rid of bad cholesterol in my body by drinking more red wine. I'm also going to foster relationships in my life by calling people and just chatting.

I resolve to go with you! Seriously, I've decided to finally learn to play the piano. I've always wanted to but never made the time to really do it. So 2008 is it!

We'll take lots of photos.
It's hard not to when you're somewhere so beautiful.


Here are some photos of the Condo building. ( ours is not pictured. And is decorated much better). It'll give you some idea of where Paul and I will be relaxing and retiring SOMEDAY.

Para├*so Costa Bonita

We're not renting it out yet... but will be soon.
So, if anyone wants to know more... Let me know.
