I don't make resolutions because I like to think of myself as a work in progress. A work that keeps on working no matter what. A work that needs improvement but that knows what's good for him. I'm always looking forward because looking behind doesn't help me one bit.
That being said, I'm making resolutions for Mom. She needs them, believe me she does. And of course she's not going to make them herself so I'm taking it upon myself to do it for her.
#1 Spend more time with Stubby. This seems like a no brainer to me, but I put it at the top of the list just in case Mom forgets. I don't like all this traveling business that Mom likes to do. If I can't go with then Mom can't go. Period.
#2 Feed Stubby lots of new and exciting food. I need to broaden my horizons, expand my palate, and all that jazz in the new year. It's not that I'm sick of my food it's just that I know there's lots of food out there that I haven't tried that I know I would love. At least that's what the Food Network says.
#3 Ignore Stubby's stinkiness and never give him a bath. Again, this one is a no brainer. Mom's sense of smell is a little too keen for my liking. She says she can smell me a block away but I don't see this as a problem. I don't need a bath in 2010, trust me.
#4 Take Stubby for lots of car rides, except if the car is going to the vet or the dog wash. I need to get out more. Maybe I've been sleeping too much (is there such a thing?) or maybe it's just cabin fever but I want to cruise around town, see the sites, take in all the aromas of the restaurants, check out the action. Yep, I plan on spending lots of time in the car in 2010.
#5 Leave the computer on so Stubby can update his blog. Mom has really been slacking with this computer thingy. I told you that she doesn't trust me alone with the computer yet she won't let me update my blog when it's on. She's always saying how she needs to read her blogs, check her e-mail, update Facebook. Whatever! My bloggy is important and it needs to be updated daily. Maybe I should have asked Santa Paws for my own computer.
I guess 5 resolutions is enough for now. I know, I know, she's getting off light but I'm going to print these out and tape them all over the house. I'm even going to attach a picture of myself so she knows I mean business. I hope she doesn't get mad because that's not what I want. After all, how could anyone get mad at this little angel?
