  5. Popping in on the Hop.

    My resolutions this year are to publish my first novel, write a few more, read a lot, and do some traveling.

    One year, I resolved to not drink wine all year... I made it about to St Patrick's Day, then it was all over. I like my wine ;)

  6. I have goals this year instead of resolutions... My goal is to finally graduate college in October and hopefully have a pretty great accounting job by that time also. Plus attend my first romance convention.

    I once tried not swearing for the whole year... I lasted about two months replacing swear words with other words like sugar, cheese and rice, darn and frack lol.

  10. This year I plan to get healthy. I am going to water arobics three times a week and I am going to have an operation on my hip that I have put off far too long. I once vowed to give up chocolate but I only lasted two months. Crazy, huh!!!

  11. Hmm...craziest New years resolution ever was when I was 21. I resolved to not marry another David! I had already married 2 different Davids by the age of 20 and been divorced (the first time I was 16.) Sadly, I almost married the second David again after we divorced. Thank heavens I came to my senses first. Now I am 7 years David-free. E-mail is centerstagegirlyATyahooDOTcom

  24. Craziest goal I ever set was to try zip lining at the age of 45. I tried it and it is as much fun as it looks.... until you slam into the first tower because you were too nervous to listen to the instructor before you took off! It is amazing what an incentive that was to listen before taking off again! Absolutely loved the rest of the course.

    Thanks for the giveaway
