Happy (Almost) New Year From Team Awkward And Cake

In my younger days, I loved the idea of a new beginning. I adored change and the chance to be different. But I mostly stayed the same, which made New Year resolutions perfect. I was supposed to fail within the month.

In my older days (as in today) I feel more introspective this new year.

I know I want to eat more cake in 2012 although I’ve already put on 5 pounds and mostly in my right thigh. (or my dryer has shrunk only the right leg of my jeans.) I also lost my waistline some time in 2009 so I’d like to find it but I’m depressed that it might be at the gym I haven’t seen since the fall.

I’m willing to find the gym if I can keep my cake resolution though.

I also want to spend as much time in public in these:

Nothing says awkward like matching hoodies. Unless you add Team Awkward to them.

Lastly, I resolve to train my eyebrows.

So I think 2012 will be pretty awesome, which shouldn’t be too hard since my greatest hope on the last weekend of 2011 is for my kids to sleep through the night.

I also wrote up my top 10 New Year resolutions I won’t keep over on Go read so we can decide not to keep them together.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Where can I get a Team Awkward sweatshirt? It would be nice to feel like I was a part of something. I’m so desperately lonely.

  2. I’ve been making fewer new year’s resolutions because I know I will only keep one or a few. It’s kind of sad. But I realize now that my problem is the resolutions I make. Why have I never resolved to eat more cake? Now that I could probably pull off!

    Happy 2012, Alex and your awesome/awkward family!

  3. I want that sweatshirt too, damnit.

    Also? your husband looks like Jason Sudeikis from SNL. I am a fan of that.

    And yeah, I don’t make resolutions. Although I do want to have this baby in 2012. I guess that counts as a resolution.
