I have done things with chocolate covered cherries too. That was fun.

And alcohol too. That can be interesting, but only if the other person is drinking something you also like. "Honey you taste like scotch" "Is that a good thing?" "Um, well, it's different..." He drank & shared something else - Blackhaus - , I was happier.

Anyone still working on their resolutions?

So far I have since January 1 stopped my late night snacking and have tried to eat more fruit and veg. Also doing okay with drinking water.

I have started working on #2 on my goal list which was to organize my finances and paperwork. Went to the bank on the weekend and sorted out my bank accounts by switching over to a no-fee account and a savings account that gives higher interest, all the bills are paid up for the month so I guess that is a good start

#4 was to Implement the Flylady plan in my house and I have started by participating in the Flylady declutter challenge and have thrown a bunch of junk out that I have no idea why I was keeping

#10 was to brush up on my languages- I picked up a catologue of night school courses and I am trying to decide which one I am taking.

So far so good

Mauvais, you are doing great!!

My house is still shot, but I'm going to get onto my resolutions later this week. Still feeling weak from the flu, but I'm going to the gym again today. Which is most important.

I guess its appropriate to discuss sexual hijinx in the resolutions thread since so many of us made that a resolution...to have more sex...

I haven't been doing great with mine. Did go to the gym yesterday and today! Yeah, Have been more conscious of what I am eating...but, have slipped quite a bit in the evenings...just chowing down all sorts of stuff. Have worked more hours and am really busy with work...worked a bit on one of the scrapbooks...so, as this is January 7th I guess I shouldn't be too hard on myself and should conmend myself on getting that much done.

More to do though.

Chocolate covered cherries........hmmmmm........now what could you possibly do with those???

What I did with them wasn't all that interesting, I am way more interested in Den's "find the Chocolate Covered Cherry" Game. That sounds interesting

I'd like to know what you say when the kids accidentally walk in on you.

You girls!

I installed a Spanish learning program in the computer this evening I am planning on brushing up this winter, I want to work on my French and Italian too as they are a bit rusty from underuse. The good news is I am still good enough to be able to read, understand and eavesdrop on people's conversations

I registered for basic Italian lessons at nightschool, Mauvais. I start in a couple of weeks. DH was born in Canada, but his first language was Italian. He keeps trying to teach me, but he only speaks it, doesn't write it. I'm a visual learner, and can only remember something if I can see it in writing. Ciao, bella.

Thanks Ellis!

Good for you Merrylegs! I've had a to do list going for the past couple of years and I have decided that 2003 is going to be the year I actually do those things I've been talking about.

Merrylegs, you clever girl! I'm married to a French-Canadian, but I'm far too lazy to learn another language at this point. On the other hand, my old Dad has been taking Spanish lessons for the last 5 years or so. Maybe I'll do something similar in later life.

Well, one of my unpublished resolutions was to clean up after dinner COMPLETELY before going to bed. So far, I've done it every night. It sure is nice to wake up and go into a spotless kitchen.

Hey Ruth, sweetie! Where have you been!? Low carb, huh? We just don't attract as well.
Congratulations on sticking to your spotless kitchen resolution!

I'm looking on the Internet for recipes for one that I can freeze. Instead of buying all these darned Lean Cuisines, etc. I have no imagination. And no cooking skills.
