In general I think New Years Resolutions are a crock. Every year I say to myself, "screw it, I'm not making any - it's stupid anyway!" But then the year draws to a close and I start to think I really should at least make an effort to better a few things in my life. I mean, having goals is not a BAD thing, right?
Weed more! I mean it is not that likely that I'll completely eradicate the bastard pseudo-morning glory weed that is trying to destroy me, but I'd like to at least make an effort to spend more time weeding and stop only focusing on the fun stuff.
Put my tools (toys) away when I'm done. I have a really bad habit of leaving stuff out in the rain. Not intentionally, but I always think I'll just take a short break then go back outside to finish working. Next thing you know it's been a week and the rake is rusting.
Host a garden party. You may not have noticed but I'm extremely introverted and anti-social. It's true! I swear! I'm also very shy. Why does nobody ever believe me when I say that??? Anyway, I'd like to host a garden party (even though I'm not even sure exactly what that is or what it involves) on my new future patio.

Anti-Gardening Resolutions: Does gardening keep you from doing very important stuff? I've been thinking of doing a post called "The Bad Side Of Gardening" (note: add stop procrastinating to 2008 resolutions).
Clean the house more. Somehow I seem to have decided that all work at home should be done outside the house.
Get back to a regular exercise routine. Again - gardening is at fault here!
Work less. I don't mean garden less - I mean work for "the man" less. I'm getting home entirely too late these days and I miss Mr. W.
So that's about it for me. What about you? Have you made any Gardening or Anti-Gardening Resolutions for 2008? If not, it's time to start thinking about it. Jeez there are only a few days left in 2007, people! Let's get moving!
grow, marvel, eat, laugh, persevere
