Reverse Psychology

My birthday, July 2, actually marks the exact middle day of the year. I was pondering life--which I have the horrible tendency to do while I'm trying to go to sleep--and realized that it was the perfect day to have a Reverse New Year's Resolution. That's right, I'm declaring a new day in the year to make goals that you may-or-may-not keep. My goal: to stay on WeightWatchers and lose 45 pounds by New Years.


My original New Years goal: mail out thank you cards on time. Hmmm, has anyone received a thank you card? No, you haven't. I am a terrible, terrible person. My baby is actually 12 weeks old! If you read this and you haven't gotten a thank you card, please shame me. That's right, you have a free pass to give me a hard time until I get you one!

Thanks for no thanks, Brooke!

Actually....you can make it up to me by letting me play with Van. We'll call it even!

:)

I will write the thank you cards! I will!

Geez Brooke! You're such an insensitive slacker of a friend. I can't even believe I'm still speaking with you. While playing with Van will make it up for Jess, we'll call it even if you slip a crisp twenty into our thank you.
