Happy New Year

This year I have resolved to do something for me. Just me. Something totally revolving around moi... not something for the family or for friends or everyone else.

It's not a shopping trip or a makeover or anything fleeting. Not a "mother's day out" kind of event. This will be a project that I want to do, that benefits no one else. Something that is just to make me happy. I have no idea if it will be a success or a big, fat, FLOP. But I've decided that I want to give it a try. Perhaps it will mean I become a better everything else? Wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend--if I take on a little bit for me?

To start your New Year off on a fun note:

The sartorialist would gag on a Manolo Blahnik stiletto in the face of this: people of walmart

Hopefully 2010 will not deliver any nightmares from the bakery to your table.

And finally, the words that should die a merciful death in 2009 and not reappear in 2010... please: chillaxin (chilling and relaxing), sexting (texting about sex), unfriend (not a verb).

I look forward to finding out what your project will involve. I wish you every success.

PS I also add regretsy to your list of funny (and very naughty)blogs.

Happy New Year to you all from us. I say a project just for you is a great idea and will definitely make you a better person. Go girl. (is that one of those saying that should die out too)

I know it is terrible English and ungrammatical but I quite like "unfriend". It's so powerful.

"I unfriend you".

Not you, obviously Melinda, I love you. My SIL though, wouldn't mind unfriending her. Didn't want to friend her in the first place but my brother made me.

Happy New Year!!!

I love that you are planning to do something for just you. I have a similar desire.

I know you desire a trip to Australia!!!! I'd support that!!!

Much loves

How about Frenemy?

Not entirely sure I know exactly what it means, would Stomper's SIL qualify? Or is it more of a friend that you have a love hate relationship with? Or is it a friend who you secretly hate?
Or is it someone you openly hate, but secretly wish was your friend?
