About Me

My photo
I grew up in a family of Southern storytellers. Back in 2004, I started Whole Bean to continue the tradition in a new medium. Over the years, I've written about families and friends, peculiar situations, extended road trips, recalcitrant home appliances, and many things for which I'm truly grateful. I hope you enjoy your time here.

Resolutions, Ltd.

I have developed a highly advanced theory about New Year's resolutions, and it is that you should only make as many of them as you can count on one hand.  For most of us, that would be a maximum of five (if you are a member of another species with more fingers, my sincere apologies).  Personally, I like to keep the number of resolutions to just two or three realistic goals, enough so that I can recite them to myself on demand without forgetting them by the time July rolls around.

I began using my resolution system over ten years ago, and it has appeared to work for me.  In fact, it has worked so well that this year, I have decided to distill my resolutions down to one, and that is:

Finish stuff.

That being said, I've now finished this blog entry.  Happy New Year, everyone!
