Day 12: Twelve Goals/Resolutions for 2016

Well, the 12 Days of Christmas has come to a close. I hope you’ve enjoyed my little lists these past two weeks. I know I’ve enjoyed writing them.

12 Goals/Resolutions for 2016

I’ve always hated the New Year’s Resolutions. My parents used to make my sister and me write them down and then when we didn’t honor them they would throw it back at us.

11 Things Still on My Bucket List

  1. Achieve my ideal weight – Ideally this super easy because I’m only about 10 pounds off, but for some reason I just can’t get my butt in gear.

Day 10: Ten ‘Bad A$$’ (To Me) Things I’ve Ever Done

Well, the 12 Days of Christmas is winding down. I hope you’ve enjoyed some additional glimpses into the quirky world of Erica.

Day 10: Ten ‘Bad A$$’ (To Me) Things I’ve Ever Done

  1. Change a tire. Now I know this is a super practical skill that everyone should know how to do, and I had to dig deep in the recesses of my brain to remember what how to do this. The only reason I did it is because the auto club told me it was going to be over an hour and I had someplace I needed to be. But I did take it to the shop immediately to the shop immediately after my appointment to get a new tire. I did enquire within to make sure I put it on properly and (big cheese grin) I did!!
  2. Travel by myself. I really enjoy traveling, but I really hate traveling with others. I like to do what I want when I want and go where I want.

Day 9: Nine Things I’m grateful for . . .

I decided to change-up the 12 Days of Christmas order a bit. Today’s post is:

9 Things I’m grateful for . . . 

  1. Being able to spend it with family and friends
  2. My grandmother. She’s a super strong woman and I hope that when I’m her age I still have all my faculties and am just as super fly as she is.
  3. Being able to give without putting myself in debt
  4. This is kind of a hallelujah and an Awww. That it’s warm and there is no snow.
  5. My sister’s lasagna. I am Garfield when it comes to lasagna.
    Garfield, I love lasagna
  6. That I don’t have to wear ‘church clothes’ to church tomorrow.
  7. My sock puppet footie pajamas. (I’ll show you a picture of me in it later.)
  8. Gummi Bears – Haribo Gummi Bears to be exact
  9. I will be quite thankful for this. 3 bean chili, I shall be making tomorrow.
