Welcome to 2013. I’m sure most of you are either still enjoying your Christmas/new year break or dragged yourself back to work yesterday.
Either way I hope it was a safe and happy one.
I don’t know about you but I make a conscious decision not to make new year’s resolutions — I’m sure you can relate that we always have good intentions, but just get depressed when they don’t happen.
Not surprisingly, a popular resolution is to lose weight and/or go to the gym to get fit.
My husband hates going to the gym this time of year because it’s too busy with people wandering around not knowing what they’re doing on the equipment. He says this changes after a few months as people either drop off or cooler weather hits.
When making new year’s resolutions, the rules are simple: keep them realistic and achievable.
So following these guidelines, I decided to make one: it was to make a dental appointment.
You may laugh, but I’ve had the reminder on my desk for almost a year now, and I’m usually like clockwork, going every six months.
But this one was difficult because I wanted to change dentists, somewhere closer to home — and this was where the ‘‘work’’ started. So it got put off. And off.
So I’m proud to say that as I write this, the appointment has been made — I made the husband do the leg work during his quiet time at work. But hey, it’s done.
