Happy 2009 to all!
Well, this year has started off pleasantly. No big New Year’s Eve celebrations or anything, but D and I did have a very nice dinner date for New Year’s Day.
This year makes getting out of school seem even closer, because now I can say I am supposed to graduate next year. Woo Hoo!
I have 3 New Year’s Resolutions:
1. Eat Healthier Foods…no explanation needed here
2. Be More Active….do not continue to define “activity” as typing on a keyboard
3. Stop Washing My Hands SO Damn Much….seriously, this is getting ridiculous. I am a bit of a germaphobe. Ok, not a bit. A big germaphobe. I wash my hands with scalding hot water and excessive amounts of soap AT LEAST 10x a day. More if I’m cooking. I love to cook, but if I touch a raw egg or raw meat, my hands must be thouroughly sanitized each and every time I am forced to touch it. I shudder when I watch television chefs because they all seem to have a disdain for hand-washing between steps in cooking. (Obviously, I am not one of those people who enjoys licking the batter out of the bowl….It is contaminated and must be sprayed with scalding water in the sink.) Anyway, I have no interest in giving up my germaphobia, but I am tired of my hands being dry and cracked all the time. Also, I think the skin on my hands is beginning some sort of rebellion against me. Not only do I get the normal cracks and flaking, I am now also getting these red angry blistery bumps on the joints where my fingers are connected to my hands. Which according to Dr. Google could be anything from measles to baby acne. Hand cream does help, but then again, hand cream is easily washed away.
So those are my 3 resolutions. I know number 3 does not speak well of my overall mental health, but hey, no one is perfect.
What are your resolutions?
