Adding to the wishes for a happy New Year being tossed about freely, I hope you are able to:

Take a minute to call an old friend
Do at least 5 random acts of kindness (preferably outside of the ward/church)
Take a trip or vacation to a destination of your choice.
Complete at least 1 of your New Year;s resolutions.
Make your rent/mortgage with ease.

I’m not one to make resolutions or set goals (I forget within minutes what I set out to do) but these seem like nice things to aspire to in the coming year.

Tell me what you would like to see on this list.


Consumption Unit

My daughter has started referring to us as her “parental unit” . It must be something she picked up from her socially conscious progressive high school but this term bugs the hell out of N.

I think he thinks it disrespectful and impersonal. I can’t put my finger on it and while I think it’s funny in the “that’s cute” kind of way, I have to admit that N is right. Children should address their parents with a little respect.

So… last week, Belle said, “thank you, parental unit” and in response N said, “you’re welcome, consumption unit.”

Doesn’t that just sum up a teenager’s role perfectly?
