One of my favorite Italian films, Roberto Benigni and Nicoletta Braschi in “Johnny Stecchino” (Johnny Toothpick). Unfortunately, no subtitles, so learn italiano subito! Santa Cleopatra!
Part 1 of 12.
OMGosh…. this literally makes me giddy. I want them both. Really. Yet, they belong happily to Kaelah (see the kisses?), the hostess of the amazing Little Chief Honeybee blog. Love. it.
Wait, wait… what about my fave?… “Mom smokes in the car. Jesus is okay with it, but we can’t tell Dad.”
For those of you who may only make it through mid-January with your resolutions…
Keep ’em simple, people. Nothing worse than facing discouragement a week or two in. Resolutions are daily tasks or situations that eventually become a lifestyle, not a chore.
Therefore, I’ll exchange my more vigorous resolutions (learn Italian fluently, own a cabin in North Carolina, walk down the aisle, be loved by a little French bulldog) for some easier, more immediately attainable alternatives. Like:
What and how I eat. I want to juice 1-2 times a week (read: buy a juicer!) and eat smaller portions. I also want to cut down on coffee (gasp!) and drink more green tea.
Living music. Although Orlando isn’t a mecca for great shows, we do get some. I want to go to more concerts. The last one was itty bitty at The Plaza but was such a BIG night of seeing Josh Ritter! Up next: the Givers at The Social.
Budgeting. I have a steady job now, so it’s time to save money (read: pay off my debt) and put some away for travel. I’m so glad we aren’t still on a dowry system. My savings account is wimpy.
Book borrowing. I love to read, but I would like to borrow more books from friends or the library than I buy. The last time I moved I realized how many books I’ve collected and just how much books weigh! I’ve given a ton of them away and now it’s time to release that accumulation habit.
