Getting closer to finalizing family New Year's resolutions

For the past three and a half weeks, our family has been in the midst of a perpetual strategic planning session for the purpose of coming up with a New Year's resolution for each of us. As my four faithful readers know, Momma is the goal-oriented member of the family, so she was responsible for spearheading this project. We've gone through several pads of flip-chart paper, and the walls are plastered with papers listing resolution ideas (and the living room is now the Stewart Family SWOT Room, where each of the four walls contains papers that designate family Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats). Unfortunately, we're not quite finished, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We've narrowed everything down to just three possible New Year's resolutions for each of us:


CLAIRE
1) To get a [quote] "big kid bed".
2) To stop refusing to eat chicken pieces that haven't been molded into the shape of Mickey Mouse's head OR a dinosaur.
3) To stop farting in church.

MOMMA
1) To maintain a regular running schedule, plus to win - or at least finish strong - the Semi Marathon de Paris (aka Paris Half Marathon) in March.
2) To continue being a wonderful role model to Claire by teaching her how to tolerate Stew when he's in one of his "moods".
3) To reward herself with more spa days (she currently only takes one per year).

BOGART
1) To change the focus of this blog toward stories about Claire, parenting and other observations from a dog's eye view (and less soap box rants).
2) To continue TALKING ABOUT changing this blog while actually doing nothing.
3) To give the benefit of the doubt to the unstable guy wearing a pork-n-bean juice stained
PALIN 2012 t-shirt, sitting in his gold coin lined basement bunker cleaning his arsenal of assault rifles while watching TeVo-ed Glenn Beck shows when he tells me that I've "drank the Kool-Aid".

STEW
1) Stop telling Bogart that he's [quote] "drank the Kool-Aid".
2) Take off his PALIN 2012 t-shirt and actually throw it in the washing machine.
3) To stop farting in church.

So there you have it folks. I'm actually in the process of looking at new designs for the blog, so I might be gone for a few days while I make some aesthetic changes. Who knows, you just might find Stew actually doing some of the writing... that is as long as I can get him off the couch. Stay tuned... seriously. Please stay tuned!

I can't believe you actually got a Palin 2012 shirt. Did it come free with the book?

Bogart 9:47 AM  

Stew doesn't read, so his shirt came from www.sarahpac.com where he funnels all the money he makes taking online surveys (it's Palin's political action committee "Dedicated to building America's future, supporting fresh ideas and candidates who share our vision for reform and innovation."). Eventually, I suspect she'll actually come up with an idea besides "Drill, Baby, drill". Seriously, I can't name a single idea or policy she's actually articulated. There, I took your bait. Now you've got me "stewing". Well done, Colorado... well done!

Support my dawgs!

Here's where I put stuff I support...

About This Blog

Commentary from a stay-at-home dad on daily happenings and misadventures while helping raise a wonderful little girl. The goal is to employ wit, sarcasm and/or humor to make the blog pseudo-entertaining. Then again, setting goals never really worked for me, but maybe you'll chuckle anyway.

THE SAHD CLUB - A rip-off of the letter written by the kids from the 1980's blockbuster hit, The Breakfast Club.

THE DOG DISH - Here you'll find the occasional rant or story written from a dog's point of view.

COMEDY - Here you'll find stuff I think is funny, typically video clips, cartoons or jokes.

LINKS - Just what the name implies.

PAW-LITICS - More rants, typically directed at despicable politicians with whom I disagree.
