Today’s Resolution: Take to the Skies

Do you prefer short pointed wings or sleek narrow ones? This is not chicken wing related. Find yourself an 8.5” X 11” sheet of paper and create a paper airplane that can take to the skies. Revise and perfect your design for the purpose of achieving distance or speed. One never knows when a challenge will be encountered for a paper airplane making competition. At least you will be ready!

Today’s Resolution: Shred for Safety

Because identity theft can be a real threat, shredding important old documents that contain account numbers and other critical information should occur regularly. If you don’t have a shredder, there are sometimes “community shreds” organized where you can deposit old forms and documents at a public location. Start gathering such items designated for a “shred,” and try to do this periodically. Even if you toss single items in the trash from time to time, make sure you have taken scissors to them.

Today’s Resolution: Go for Broke

Make a list of any broken items in your home. Prioritize and figure out what it takes to make repairs. Is it something you need now? Will be expensive to take care of? Post the list up somewhere so it is unavoidably visible. Stop procrastinating. Call the plumber, go to the hardware store, implore a neighbor; get busy and fix it!

Today’s Resolution: Rescue the Rack

Sometimes the magazine rack is spilling over to the point where you cannot ignore it any longer. Spend 10 minutes fishing through old magazines and circulars that are stacked somewhere taking up space. Throw away anything issued more than 3 months ago. Decide if you or anyone in your household actually reads the issues; if they do not, cancel the subscription. Revisit articles or look for valuable coupons that are not expired. And don’t forget to freshen up old issues that might be in the bathroom; often this is where the most reading occurs!

Today’s Resolution: Be a Bird Brain

Today's Resolution: Be a bird brain

Do you know the difference between a crow and a raven? A robin and a wren? Gather up some seeds, nuts, and fruit to attract some birds of a feather.  Do a little bird watching to get in touch with nature. Depending on what part of the country you live in, indigenous birds can cover quite a variety. Sunflower seeds and peanuts are commonly consumed items. Toss food periodically in your yard, set up an actual birdfeeder, or go to a local park with your food cache and see what flocks around you. Caution: You may attract non-feather types (squirrels) or end up with some bird “debris” on cars, patios, or your head!
