I cleaned my car the other day and found this gem from a nursing home's news letter. Following are the new year's resolutions of some of nursing home residents:
-My New Year's resolution is to get my family together. I want to go back to live with my family. I also want to have a good relationship with all the people in my past and the ones I'll meet in my future.
-I want to smoke less and read more. I also want to have a good friendship with everybody here (at the nursing home).
-I want to smoke less, and I want my family to come more often. I also want a TV in my room.
-I want everybody to like me. I want to stop cursing and screaming, and I want to be a good person.
-I want to get well and be to able to function on my own ( this resident since went home).
-My New Year's resolution is to stop crying, be nice to everybody, and to stop wearing a lot of makeup.
-My New Year's resolution is to be nice to people and to get along with them. I also want to stop smoking.
-I want to become a better person and stop taking things that are not mine.
-My New Year's resolution is to go back to my own apartment with my family. I want to get well, and I thank everyone at the nursing home for helping me (the man unfortunately is a nursing home hopper and is still residing @ the same institution).
-My New Year's resolution is to continue not to smoke, and to have my kids visit me.
