Up-to-the-New Year Resolutions

I took Facebook off of my phone the day after the election, and I feel like I've regained so much of my life that I'm inspired to make a whole list of resolutions that are wildly unambitious but inspiring nonetheless.

So, between now and the New Year, I resolve to:

1) Update this blog. (Maybe more ambitious than I realize, given the fact that the last time I tried to update was at the last New Year, and it literally broke my computer. That can be a blog post for another day.)

2) Make holiday-scented playdough. Mint, cinnamon, or both.

3) Drink a lot of mulled wine.

4) Resume the 7-minute workout at least twice a week. Like I said, wildly unambitious. I was actually doing really well at it right up until I got pregnant with Elese. She's almost 2 and now that I have a huge yard, I don't even take my kids out for walks.

5) Read a book to Elese when I want to strangle her. (I hope CPS isn't reading this; if you are, I promise, I'll never do that. But if you knew her, you might understand the impulse.)

6) Put away Elese's clean clothes.

7) Write to a friend.

8) Unpack the junk drawer box that's in the corner of my dining area. If not unpacked by 12/31/16, I shall throw it in the garbage in its entirety.

9) Let my kids stay up too late for something fun and Christmas-y.

10) Give something that brings joy to someone who doesn't expect it.

While modern machines not have tilt switches, any sort of technical fault (door change within the wrong state, reel motor failure, out of paper, and so on.) remains to be referred to as a "tilt". It flashes to alert the operator that change is required, hand pay is requested or a possible problem with the machine. It may be lit by the player by urgent the "service" or "help" button. Advocates for the gambling business disagree, claiming electronic gaming machines are benign — designed to entertain, not manipulate. Whether you assume slot machines are a trick or leisure depends 1xbet largely on the way you method them.
