2014: Man in the mirror, make a change?

 Ack, New year's resolutions.  I have many areas targeted for improvement, especially riding-wise -- but here's a "big picture" sort of resolution...

While it may not seem like I have an ounce of self-reflection in me, I do think about self-improvement. I'm not the person I would like to be. Most mornings, I start out with an idea in my head of the ideal me -- basically, a good person, 100% of the time. By the end of the day, looking back, the mistakes are what I remember.

Michael Jackson and I...
Some mornings Bob is up when I'm getting ready for work. Like all couples, we have schtick, and one of ours is to give mock pep talks to each other -- who can spout off the most platitudes, like "there's no 'i' in team," etc.  As I gather up my purse and cellphone and head out the door,  part of the ritual is for me to start (badly) singing "Man in the Mirror" à la Michael Jackson, while Bob does what (he thinks are) MJ moves and gestures.

"Take a look at yourself and make a change!"

This is why we don't have surveillance cams in the house. It would be too embarrassing.
