1":' , and usually S them lira - day; / w Jaiiti&r broken on the - best way to keep is tcr have a copy locked un draWelf. ;: Most .of us are h en, w,e resolve htlorjg -and when , pin r we g^t quite a ;i«,. the. region of the cons- rather u n p 1 e'a s a n t ' ' New 'Years re: solutions; have a pretty good chance of being broken is, no reason to keep from making them. The summing up of our faults .. and the recognition that we need to Change have : a therapy of their 'own. But if you tinker with the resolution' a little you can make 'em and break 'em quite painlessly. Jf you »use a negative , approach to the new year arid make the sqrt of resolutions I .have, you can easily keep as many as you Want to. But the real advantage to my new .system comes when you break ' a resolution • because yon can do this without .a 'Single twinge of conscience. In fact' the more yqu break, the better you feel. ; * « .* , I have hero a few samples of Grace's Negative Resolution System. You can make up your own as? you go along and it is also up to you to figure out youi 1 own method of breaking tnem. The first item is, I resolvu to stay away from church. I'll not go there more than once a month unless its to some social affair^ and when the preacher 'touches upon. one of my failings, 111 look the other way and think, "Ho means somebody else not me." Church aallendance might be habit • forming f ,mi from it I might get spiritual inspiration, a fresh start for a new . week and a sense of belonging to a congregation of people who are trying to live the right way. * * « . This year I am resolving to let my kitchen cupboards, closets imd dresser drawers stay messv Fibber. McGee got famous by letting things spew, out of his closet every time anyone opened the door and I might get some notoriety . that way, also. At least I'm sure my closets are fully as miscellaneous as Fibber's. ' .I resolve io extend my telephone conversations to at least thirty minutes. That way the ether party on our line will get io use the phone hardly at all. .'.'11 phone people up at quarter to twelve, both' at noon and in the evening, ask them what's new and I won't identify who's calling. When I have a busy day lined up, I'll get on the phone & waste simply hours. I'll never Jiang up when I'm through will the subject I've called abou), and I'll try to call you just when you're giving the baby a bath 01 shampooing your hair. « • « I'm going io get my column up to the. UUM laic every single Friday morning this year. That's real easy because I can always say the kids forgot to take "it or I couldn't 'think of a subject. I'm going to keep on misspelling words, talking about my relatives niul braijsing U'hen someone says something nice 'about me. I'm going tii leave at Jeasi one ingredient out of every recipe. When I hear of an item for Around Algona I'm going to send it in to the paper without ever chucking with the person it concerns. During 1956 I'm not going to keep up .with my mending. Fresh air is good fop Father's elbows when the sleeve;; of His work shirts wear out and the kids look charmingly casual when they have a big safely pin in their coats in lieu of a button. I'm not going to triko my make-up off when I go to bed, not going to pin-curl my hair between shampoos and I'm not going to clean myself up unless I'm going Io a big party. Above all, I'm going to keep Father away from that bath tub! . • • * This year I resolve to iallc more than I listen. Especially when there's a subject being discussed about which I know .'absolutely nothing. I'm going to interrupt very ruddy, fail to show my appreciation for favors, write DO letters and fail to compliment any job that is reasonably well done. I'm going to point out the shortcomings in my friends and overlook their good points. When the opportunity for cattyness conies, I'm going to say it riglV out loud instead of merely think it, • f • • In 1956 I'm going to fee the original Yev. girl. I'll nqt say No to any decent proposition if its a job for "Jim to do outside my home and hobby. It' anybody nii^ds any envelopes addressed in legible 'handwriting, any tiva- suiur's work done, campaigns for funds hfja'cled, bandages rolled or doorbells rung, Grace is youi girl, especially when the job calls foj> talent I do not possess. If nobody calls to solicit my aid, J'll volunteer, and to those people who have turned me down wJifff 4 Was out looking for workers, I vi'iJl tie insistaiit that 'they, let me help. •••• 1 .have- oodles of .time, ypu know-*-'' the housSe and kid s rill* themselves /and i tHj) only reason I hanker |o do more reading, writing, cooking and plain relaxing; is' to kill time. .-!•'•' ';» - • .*; •..'•* I aW .arcing lo,do a lot of worrying duririg the coming year. I m, going to fret and fume on all subjects from Atomic Bortibs to Zebras getting loose from the zoo. It will ;put lots of nice wrinkles "in my brow and more gray hairs jn my bangs. I'll really go all out with my worrying when it s over something that can t be helped or something that will never Tmppen. I might be able to develop an ulcer this Way or menage a pretty fair nervous areaktfown. ., Then I'll really, lave worrying material—lots of" nice doctor and hospital bills. • ' _ "*.' •», '« '• ,.', Other nasly trails on my nega- -ive New Year's resolution list are nagging Father, yelling at the cids, kicking at dogs, being mean o elderly ladies and impertinent to salespeople.
