ac·count·abil·i·ty noun \ə-ˌkaun-tə-ˈbi-lə-tē\

: the quality or state of being accountable; especially : an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions.

And in my case I'm talking about New Year's Resolutions.

Normally I spend a bunch of time writing down a long list of things I need to improve, but I'm taking a different approach this year.  This year I have TWO resolutions.

1.  I will learn German... thats really all I need to say about that one.  I was going to write a paragraph about the who what when where and why's, but I think this one is pretty self explanatory.  What I WILL say about this one is that its pretty embarrassing to squeak out my germenglish language...perhaps you remember my faux paux about ein leetle shpoona?   I will never live that down.  Its almost as bad as when I pronounced chihuahua as chi hooah hooah...I had no idea thats how you spelled the Taco Bell dog. about this one...I was playing online scrabble against someone and said to John, I know what a tictac is, but whats a tactic?  Oh man...he still teases me about that...but I digress and my resolution is to learn German...not English.  I'll keep that one for another year.

2.  I will get healthy.  Woah...I know...right?  Thats a BIG one.  See why I only have two resolutions this year?  I've broken it down into some mini-goals that I'm tracking by week and month...the two biggest being eating better and exercise.  Yeah yeah yeah... I KNOW I put this resolution every year, but I've got some big plans riding on it this year.  AND...just to be accountable I plan on once per week marking my progress...right here on this blog...for all the world to see. 

Lucky you. 

Happy New Year!

I see your resolutions and I agree. I too only have a few. To excercise and eat better, and to read my scriptures daily, also to spend more time with my kids. I made one to learn to make bread too. Because who doesn't love fresh baked bread?

As for your previous post. I love the look. At least her look is cute, but that could be the bum too. Abby has a look and we call it the stink eye. I'm sure you are laughing now because I too have that look. Remember high school?

I'm with you... not to learn German, although I'd love to, but there's not many opportunities for that here in OKlahoma...
Baby #3 has done me in and I'm back to where I swore I'd never be weightwise... let's do it together... Share with me your goals.. I need some motivation.
Love you!
