New Year’s Resolutions August 1 The late Erma Bombeck made these New Year’s resolutions: 1. I’m going to clean this dump just as soon as the kids grow up. 2. I will go to no doctor whose office plants have died. 3. I’m going to follow my husband’s suggestion to put a little excitement into my life by living within our budget. 4. I’m going to apply for a hardship scholarship to Weight Watchers. 5. I will never loan my car to anyone I have given birth to. 6. And just like last year…I am going to remember that my children need love the most when they deserve it the least.
