You were a straight shooter. You walked into my laundry room and made no qualms about saying how ridiculous the set up was. You complained about how low the machines sat. You squawked about how the dirty piles just laid out there in the open taking up the space in my dining room.

Resolution Solutions: A Resolutionary Way of Thinking

“Resolutionary!“-Daddy Brucks

 

Ok folks, many people either love resolutions or loathe them. I am not one to pick sides, but I personally am in the camp of loving them, (please don’t hate me), but it wasn’t always this way!
