Janet Hommel Mangas: New resolutions for 12 months… maybe
I can swing my kettlebell 500, 300, or at least 100 times a
day. Or three instances in step with the week. Or maximum really
I can stop launching the "share my region"
phone feature and ask my kids if they're having fun at their live performance,
I will no longer torment my grandson by taking endless
creative shots of him in various wardrobe settings, hats,
sunglasses, even though we all understand that this
