Resolve Not To Resolve

Resolutions. I don’t remember the last time I made a New Year’s resolution. It’s like dieting. If I say I’m on a diet, I end up not sticking to it. How many of y’all have made resolutions, started them on...Read More

    New Years Resolutions for Real People

    I’ve never been into making New Year’s resolutions. Those things are pretty much doomed by Valentine’s Day, and it’s hard to annually decide on something simultaneously important enough to actually address, but not so much I mind dooming it to...Read More

    Resolutions I Won’t Be Making

    We’re nearing the end of December, and you know what that means! It’s time to make resolutions for the new year that you’ll have broken by February. Right? Well, a couple of our contributors are looking at resolutions for 2014 a little differently.

    Lisa Witherspoon:

    January. A new year. A time to start fresh with new objectives and new plans.

    People all across the world are busy making all kinds of New Year’s resolutions right now. They are vowing to lose weight, or to go back to college, or to take better care of themselves. It seems that the new year is the perfect time to set some new goals (or re-visit old ones), right?

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Coming Clean About Santa

    Coming Clean About Santa

    Here’s the scene. 7:32 a.m., we have finally made it into the car and are making our way to school. We wake up, every morning with plenty of time to get there before the bell, but as usual, we are inevitably running late and I no longer have my sweet morning voice, I’m now in the Army Sergeant voice, with a “let’s go, let’s go, let’s go.” All the way to the car as they dawdle behind, oblivious to time.

    We sit in the mini-van and we pass the Christmas tree farm and it begins.

 My 8-year-old son, from the third row, wonders out loud, “Mom…? Does Santa really watch us, like when we are sleeping? Like… watch us, watch us?”

    I’m hesitant. I see where this is going. I had been fielding these types of questions from him for a couple of weeks now. Long gone is my naïve son who was satisfied with my ridiculously fairytale like answers that have worked for me and many others for so many blissful years. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Christmas overreaction
    Erin K Moffat

    Christmas Overreactions: 1987 Style!

    My family has an old home video, which mysteriously disappeared a few years ago. No one will admit to knowing of its whereabouts. It is an old VHS tape with the tiny strip sticker reading in my Mom’s delicate handwriting Christmas 1987. Why is this video so special you ask?

    1. This video provides documentation that Santa exists, as my Dad accidentally left the video camera on all night. Yes, Erin Moffat there is a Santa Claus.

    2. It also includes maybe some of the best Christmas morning gift opening overreactions of all time. Mostly, made by me!

    The quote of the day being: “Just what I wanted! I do need this!” It also included A LOT of annoying screaming, obnoxious jumping up and down, and clapping all while screaming, jumping up and down, and slipping on wrapping paper. Out of control! READ MORE
