I realized that this is the longest I have ever stuck to my New Year's resolutions (I know...It has been a sad story in years past). I am convinced that the weather is to blame for my past failures with sticking to my resolutions. It is mush easier to clean out garages, jog, load the kids in and out of the car, and wash the car when you can actually feel your fingers! January is pretty miserable (at least to me) in Charlotte. You rarely get snow, but you always get freezing rain, black ice, and many gray, dreary days. That first early morning, let me jump start my resolutions jog in below freezing weather and I already felt defeated. Most years I just stopped there and never even began the rest of my list! Not this year...I am sticking to the easy things and thanking God for the Sunshine State!!
