A new year, a new beginning

I've been planning to post this blog for awhile now. I seem to have trouble wandering over to my blog lately to post anything, as if that isn't apparent.

I am excited for 2008. For the first time in my life I understand the significance of New Year's Resolutions. A new year gives you a chance to start fresh, start anew. Take those crappy habits and chuck them. Give yourself an entire year to make a change in your life. Its only for a year.

So here I sit at the computer, sipping one of my last Dr Peppers of 2007 because 2008 is going to be SODA FREE FOR ME! No, not FREE SODA for me, I mean I will not be drinking any soda for an entire year. Of course I've been gearing up to that by drinking the crap out of some Dr Pepper and any other sodas that strike my fancy. But when that 2008 ball drops I will quit for ONE WHOLE YEAR. Its bad stuff, its terrible for you. It is my opinion that it is causing lots of health problems in this country, first and foremost being the number of people being diagnosed with diabetes. Its is becoming so incredibly common. I don't want to be one of the numbers. I also don't want to model poor behavior-- drinking soda-- for my kids. It just doesn't work, telling them that I can have it and they can't. They won't grow up thinking its wrong, they'll probably want it MORE because it was restricted. Maybe high fructose corn syrup will be illegal by the time they are my age-- one can only hope.

Well here I am rambling again, but hey its my blog so I can ramble if I want to.

2008 Resolutions:
2. Blog once a week

Thats it. If I make my list much longer it will be too much for me and I won't do any of it. Hopefully I accomplish #1.
