Ketchup With Us - #9

Michele and I want to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Oh, sorry. Too loud? Okay. I'll whisper.

So, let's get down to business and ask the question on the tip of everyone's tongue, FB and Twitter feeds. What are your New Year's resolutions? Don't look at me like that, I'm serious! 

I know this year I've learned a lot. In fact, I know that I need to make some realistic expectations for myself to work on. Otherwise, these promises I make to myself will be over before I start. Such as going out to eat less. NOT.GONNA.HAPPEN! Oops! Shhh. 

So, we're asking you, very quietly, to come share a resolution you'd like to make but know you'll break. Don't be shy! Step right up, spread the word, and make us feel better about the things we won't follow through with either. Here are my 57 words...


* * * * * * * * * * *

Nail biting, coffee drinking, yelling at the kids and cutting off my husband to finish his sentence. These are a few things I need to work on in the new year. I'll try hard, I promise. However, one thing I know I won't follow through with is going out to dinner. The Bloomin' Onion. It calls to me.

For a quick explanation of this link-up, click here. In short, Michele and I will post a picture or video with a writing prompt on the 1st and 15th of every month. You can write your entry in any form. We love creativity. And, with each prompt, we'll feature a writer from the previous link-up. Which reminds me...

  4. This is my first post with Ketchup With Us. The prompt seemed fun so I decided to jump in. Given my techno limitations, I don't think the button is linked back to this site. Also, I did the Twitter thing but lumdog is not on FB, so I didn't "follow" there, as instructed.

    1. We love that you joined in!! No problem about FB, but what's your Twitter handle? I'd love to follow you. :)

  5. My Twitter handle is @Lumdog2012. I would be honored if you followed.me. I'm new there and have no clue what I'm supposed to put up there so it could be boring. So far, I've only shamelessly promoted by blog and my son's film which was accepted at the Slamdance Film Festival.

  6. Ah! We don't have time to write another post, but this is an adorable prompt. We are trying to get together our 1 year Blogiversary post and life is getting in the way! Soooooo my breakable New Year's resolution is . . .

    To spend less time blogging and on social media. I'm cracking myself up even typing that!

    Happy New Year! Ellen

    2. But you guys are doing so well. I kind of think I need to spend MORE time on this sh*t! Oh, let's be honest. We all know that I say the word 'shit' in real life, right?

      Shit, shit, shit.

      Sorry, Mel. I think I just uprated your blog to PG-13.
