The big stat showing up on New Year blog posts? “Only 8% of the population follows through on resolutions.” It’s ubiquitous, like blithe posts of Bland Business Beatitudes. BOR-ing. I’m sticking to basics. I can’t afford to hire the Merry Maids to dash through my house. No resolutions. Only modest proposals on this last day of Epiphany.
- Scoop the cat box daily.
- Scrub the bathtub (guest bathroom) faithfully.
- Eat the Greek yogurt in my fridge—before the expiration date times out.
- Hold a funeral for dead plants (toss them in the woods behind my house).
Will this list make me a perfect person? No. Cleanliness is next to godliness. I’m not up for sainthood, much less beatification (lapsed Methodist). I just don’t want my significant other to scold me (rightfully and gently) another year.
One more. An oldie but goodie.

I loved this! How fun!
I’m glad you like it, Mr. Bill. One more proposal: Lighten up ; )
Agree! Can’t think of better New Year resolutions. But then I’ve never been one to make any.
Yes. Perhaps I am a pleasantly pessimistic person. Or realistic. Thanks for dropping by, Dr. M.
A refreshing take. Happy New Year!
To you, too! I #goodreads of your posts this year.
Hello, Catherine. Any New Year post that includes Oscar Wilde is a good one. No resolutions for me other than to continue to learn and grow as the spirit moves me.
Glad you like the Wilde Man, Mme Silver. I’ve missed you. I lost some time in November and December due to house move and school.
Most witty, Ms. Hamrick. And thank you for the Wilde quote, one I’ve never read or heard.
Hi Dr. Dan. Thanks for the read. Great to hear from you.
