New years is just around the corner, and it gets a girl wondering: what are my resolutions? What do I want to accomplish during the year of 2012?
Every year my resolution is the same, and every year I fail within the first week.
You are probably thinking that I'm dreaming big. To be a vegetarian, or to go to the gym every day.
But no. I've been trying to start small, and I cannot get past this one stage. My new years resolution is, yet again, to floss everyday. The compliment I hear most from people is that my teeth are gorgeous. All from flossing maybe 50 times in my lifetime.
But this year I am determined. I have bought a lot of floss, and have even stashed some in my purses, so I will have no excuse.
And I think especially need to take care of my teeth at this time of year. Do you know how many sweet treats I have indulged in this holiday season?
Actually, don't guess. I think I would prefer not to know. I will try to remain ignorant as I drink this hot chocolate jam-packed with chocolate and sugar that I will forget what I was thinking about in the first place.
