I've looked around, and found a few lists of "top resolutions" we all make. Some are no surprise- our top resolution is to spend more time with family and friends. We all want to be healthier, the top resolutions include lose weight, quit smoking, be physically fit, and quit drinking. After that, we want better finances- getting out of debt and finding a better job are resolutions millions of americans will make.
So take a moment to do what the Romans did, look at the year past and get an idea of what you'd like to do for the coming year, and try to do it. And then, take some time to relax- we made it out of a very crazy year. Plan to do something or be with someone to ring in the new year and start 2009 in style. Check out the celebrations where you live, or just watch our New York City celebration on TV. Don't pay too much attention to the ball though, it is Waterford, not Swarovski crystal !! I wish all my family and friends the best, may we all have a happy new year. Ciao and Buon Capodanno !
