No resolutions, only hopes
But I do have hopes for the new year. Some are simple, some are profound, and some are actually plausible.
The war will end, the troops will come home safe and healthy, and peace will come to Iraq.
Democrats will take the White House, remain in control in Congress, and several of the more conservative Supreme Court Judges will either croak or resign for reasons of health or family commitments, leaving places for more liberal judges to rule the laws of the land.
Universal health care will come to the United States at last.
The Federal Poverty Rate will be a congressional concern and they will vote to overhaul the system, allowing for cost of living increases and cost of living credits for geographical areas.
People will become more green and will stop trying to refute global warming.
Health care research will be restructured so that mega corporations don't control all of the research studies.
The government will overturn NCLB and actually work towards education all children appropriately, including both GATE and SpED kids, by restructuring mainstreaming.
Government subsidies for corporate agriculture will cease, allowing more foodstuffs to be grown and donated to food banks, thus allowing the poor to eat healthier and combat childhood obesity.
My children will stop bickering and learn to get along.
I'll continue losing weight without very much effort on my part.
My cardiac rehab program will prove valuable and will help with my stress level.
To be a better and more pleasant mother.
To be less fiscally insecure and to begin to save some money for the future and emergencies.
To continue freelancing but more more money at it, and perhaps finding more interesting jobs.
To FINALLY get into subsidized housing with will enable me to afford an automobile.
To live a greener life this year, especially with regard to our issues with garbage and recycling (don't ask... it's a rant and a half.)
More volunteer work for the whole family.
A new computer will magically enter my life.
Finish all my knitting projects.
Less town bickering, please!
