More or Less. . .

The house is quiet now--our adult children and their wonderful partners have returned to their homes. Our son and his wife were only here a couple of days--a sweet Christmas treat.


Our daughter and her fiance were here a bit longer--visiting two sets of parents, us in PA, and his in NJ. And also doing a bit of wedding planning. But they have their work to return to--so off they flew to London.


The house is undecorated, mostly--just a few more things to put away.


So, now what?


One more week before classes resume at my community college. Must. finish. my. syllabus. . .tomorrow.


What else?


Hmmm, tap, tap, tap finger against my lips? OH YES! Resolutions.

So, some years I make resolutions; some years, I resolve NOT to make resolutions. I have thought about the whole exercise of making resolutions--and have concluded they tend to boil down to MORE or LESS.


This year, I want to weigh LESS, and eat MORE health foods.




This year, I want to exercise MORE (see above related items).



This year, I want to waste LESS time, and read MORE.









This year, I want to cherish family MORE.


Will I keep my resolutions?
More or less!

Good analysis. That is what resolutions boil down to--more or less. Enjoy the lingering memories of the sweet Christmas with your family and the anticipation of a new semester.

I'm not a fan of resolutions. They tend to be so specific and easil to fail leading to disappointment. I like your relaxed attitude.
More or less!

I'm sure you will keep them more or less.

Cleverly written. You should be a politician.

What a handsome son and beautiful daughter. It's wonderful to have them around, isn't it. When is the wedding?

Ella goes back to Virginia tomorrow. I'm already planning my next visit there. She is just so cute...so much personality.

Sounds like you had a great time. I agree with your More or Less thoughts.

Thanks also for the pics. Good to see son (remember his birth -- same time as I went to Zim) and daughter (remember hers too!). Not to mention wife and fiance.

I forgot all about resolutions? My own resolution is increasingly fuzzy.

Those resolutions would all work for me too.....now if I could only stick to them too.
