I go to the bathroom every morning at 8:30.
My resolution is to wake up before 9:00 every morning!

I like the suggestion about being more specific when making New Years' resolutions. Instead of saying I want to make more money in 2013, I will aim for earning $10,000 more next year. Instead of saying I want to win the lottery, I will aim for winning $1 million in the Virginia New Years' Day Raffle. I already feel better being more specific. I see I have 4000 characters left, but that about covers it. Rob
