Have you made any new year's resolutions?
I have one on my list and that's to clean out my collection of coffee cups. I tend to drink tea in them but I still call them coffee cups, 8 ounce ceramic mugs with favorite sayings, pictures, maybe even a comic book character. I have so many now that I have to stack them on top of each other to fit them into my kitchen cabinet.
When I think about it, though, I tend to repeatedly use only a few. Those, I have decided, can stay.
In the meantime, let's welcome a new year:
