Happy New Year

I'm just like every other person out there. I like the idea of making a New Year's resolution. There's something refreshing, even exhilarating, about making a promise to better yourself in some way and knowing you have 365 long days in which to stick with it. Not that my resolutions have ever worked out quite the way I'd hoped... I usually fail dismally, not only forgetting to keep my resolution, but also what it was in the first place.

Thus this blog.

My husband and I have joined forces and made a rather large resolution for 2010. This blog is receiving the rather weighty responsibility of keeping me accountable. It would be pretty embarrassing if my resolution fell to the curb by the end of January, seeing as it's now out there for everyone and their kitchen sink to see.

Our resolution is to give up China.

I made a list months ago titled "25 Things." Number nineteen reads, "I would like to boycott China. The two things that stand in my way are a) money and b) willpower." Those two issues have been resolved (more on that later) and Drew and I are officially on the road. Welcome to Day 1.
