Resolution time

Thursday starts the New Year; therefore, it is that time to make your list of resolutions. We thought that we would help you out by giving you some ideas to put on your own list. Here's Sarah Palin's list of resolutions:

Sources tell our newshound that these are Sarah Palin's Top Ten New Year's Resolutions for 2009:
10. Memorize the names of at least 3 major news magazines (such as US News and World Report, Newsweek, Time)
9. Pose nude for Playboy to get in touch with her "inner Republican"
8. Get a GPS device with Google Maps, so that she can see "where Russia really is."
7. Get a clue as to why McCain and the Party chose her (HINT: Not for her intelligent conversation)
6. Submit her application to become Oprah's assistant
5. Co-host Rosie O'Donnell's new talk show - the show should last as long as Palin's run for the White House - almost one season
4. Subscribe to "ALL of them news magazines" and actually READ them so that she actually will have intelligent debate responses in the future
3. Convert to Democrat - there's more chance of her being elected that way
2. Announce her plans to run in 2012 with David Hasselhoff as her running mate
1. STOP TALKING, and just stand there and look beautiful. Because: "You can make people wonder if you're a fool, or you can open your mouth, and remove all doubt" (paraphrased from Mark Twain's quote)

Monica found another list on for some additional ideas for "20 feel-good resolutions you can actually keep."

20. Start your own blog – (ha! We did that. Mark that off the list)
19. Swap CDs with your teen – (The teen we know listens to our music already and we introduce the new stuff.)
18. Be more spontaneous
17. Make your kids laugh – (Maybe they should try to make us laugh so that their parents don't want to ground them.)
16. Surround yourself with color
15. Indulge guilt-free
14. Spread cheer
13. Think like a kid
12. Find the funny – (We found the funny in everything already. The problem is that the "regular" people don't get our sense of humor.)
11. Make one new friend – (I have enough friends.)
10. Get more sleep – (ah, now we are talking.)
9. Put your right brain to work
8. Explore your hometown
7. Start a potluck ritual – (If you do this one make sure you are confident in the skills of the people you participate with. You don't want to end up with green Jell-o with carrots, cottage cheese and fruit cocktail all mixed together. )
6. Do something that scares you silly – (Why in the hell would I do that? I want a nice, pleasant 2009, not a horror-movie 2009.)
5. Simplify without stress
4. Take a "me" day – (This should be everyday.)
3. Lock lips with your husband – (Can we add to that "lock lips with your husband while thinking of Gerard Butler or some other attractive man?)
2. Host a closet raid
1. Play a new kind of hide-and-seek – (Give me a break that was the number one?)

If Sarah Palin or Woman's Day have inspired you then congratulations. We hope that you will be able to achieve all of your goals for the New Year. May it be filled with happiness, joy, money, and great adventures.

Was that Sarah Palin's top ten resolutions from David Letterman? Those sound like him. Those were funny. :)
