I'm not one who usually makes New Year's resolutions. It's because I have this stupid habit of overextending myself and setting ridiculous goals. Also, when I make resolutions to try and give things up, they don't stick.  So I've given up giving things up, and mostly try not to let my eternally optimistic self write checks that my real life self can't cash.
 (OK, you can stop rolling your eyes now, Dave...)

Since this year's first day starts with 1/1/11, (which seems to me like a particularly auspicious set of numbers to make a fresh start) I thought maybe I'd give the whole New Year's resolution thing another go.

{Resolution No. 1
I resolve to take at least one photograph every day
(that's 365 of them in 2011)
and post it here, no matter what.

{Resolution No. 2}
I resolve to stop being a lurker 
and come out and comment on every blog I read,
 even if only to say "Hi! It's just me: Petunia!", and wave.  
(they might end up wishing I would just go back to lurking)

{Resolution No. 3}
This one's for you, Dave:
I'm going to try and get rid of at least one thing a week
in an effort to declutter the house
and make a path in the storage room. 
(hmmm... if I take a picture of it, can that also cover
  Resolution No. 1?)

All right, there you have it. I'm sure I can think of many, many more worthwhile resolutions, like giving up wine promoting world peace, but I don't think I should overextend myself any more than I already have. (the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single photograph a day, apparently)  What about you? Got any resolutions you want to share?  

Happy New Year, one and all!

Good resolutions. I should try them all.
