Resolutions: Dare I Make Them?

Ah, New Year’s Eve, that magical time of year when we take time out of our busy schedules to make resolutions for the upcoming year (which we immediately forget). Every year I struggle with the question, do I make resolutions or not? In an effort to avoid the guilty feelings of not keeping my resolutions, I am taking a different approach. This year I will make a list of 13 awesome things to do in 2013 (and all the ways Girl Scouts can help).
