Has it really been 5 months since I blogged on here?  Whoa.  Must be spending too much time on FB, and not enough time on here.  Then again, maybe I should turn my FB posts INTO my blog.  Yeah, that could work.  Yeah.  I'll get started on that right after I check my FB notifications, and messages.  Then cross reference the tweets, Google+, and Foursquare checkins.  Sheesh.  okay, I might be back in another 5 months.  Oh, and I got some new lenses for the camera at Christmas.  If I can, I'll post some pictures on here.  In the meantime....... Live well, and Prospe...Pinterest too, forgot about Pinterest....

I thought or two....

While going to bed last night, I had a thought.  Well, a few thoughts as to what I should be doing rather than going to sleep.  This.  This is what I do at night.  Every night.  Every single waking night.  I decided to do what I tell my youngest.  Write down all the thoughts in your head or just turn it into a story.  Yeah.  Right.  Like that's going to help alleviate all those thoughts that are dancing around so happily in my head.  I swear it's party time in my brain once the clock hits 11:00pm.  All the thoughts start jiggling and wiggling and dancing and spinning and running and and and and.....

This sun is going to mess with my albino white skin.  I happen to like my vampire shade of pale.  Really.  It's my part in making the rest of the world look more tan.
(NOT that I'm complaining of the sun.  I heart the sun.  I really do.)  Really.  a Lot.  Seriously.

Random Stuff

Too many thoughts and words are running through my head today.  I have more writing to do, but for 3 different stories.  I'm scared to death that nothing will ever get completed.  Why is that?  Why can't I finish something?  I guess I just need to let go of something and say it's "done."  But it never is.  *sigh*  For some reason, I want to keep improving things.  House repairs, projects, stories, relationships, the children... myself.  I should have gone for that long walk this morning.  Instead I put laundry away, which increased the feeling that things are never completed.  I've been working on one story for 12 years.  TWELVE YEARS!   Will the thing ever be completed?  I doubt it.  It'll be one long run on sentence.  It will be the story that never ends.... kind of like my "to do" list.  Now I want to work in the backyard.  I have to move one bush.  But it will be a game of tetris in the backyard or like the book "If you give the mouse a cookie..."  However, it'll be more like "If you move the bush to where the playset is, you'll have to move the playset."  yadda yadda yadda. 
Rambling helps.  It's like a little spurt from a volano.  It releases just enough to ease the pressure.  In a way I'm hoping for a big explosion of kinetic energy.  But I'm betting on more build up.

2011.1 Lists

I'm making lists. And I'm including everything that I do already so I feel like I'm accomplishing something on my list. This year, I'm writing my list of things that I want to accomplish for the month in hopes that I am proactive and not reactive. (Granted, when it comes to that point, I'm about as reactive as Chernobyl....and that is not a good thing...... for me.)

So for January, my list of things I want to accomplish is as follows:
*write at least 2000 words a week (500 words 4 times a week)
*finish de-hoarding my house
*the normal stuff: laundry, vacuum, clean/dust bathrooms, etc.
*acknowledge the kids and the husband at least once a day
*Smile more :)
*take the dog for a walk 3 times a week
*keep up on the calendar (both filling it in and making it to appts w/o forgetting (sorry E & N)

I'm sure I'll forget things. That's just how my mind operates, er rather, doesn't, at this point. No resolutions this year. Can't remember what they are/were anyway. Hopefully I remember to look at this list so I know what I'm supposed to be doing. And if I forget something, well, guess I'll have to suit up for another Chernobyl meltdown....

Tis the Season

May you and yours have a wonderful Christmas. Luke 2 is my favorite passage for the telling of the story of Jesus's birth.

Take a minute to sit back. Ponder where you are with your life. Are you who you wanted to be? Are you where you wanted to be? If not, make those changes this next year. Be a better you. Treat those around you better, too. That's my goal.

Make it count. Every little thing you do each and every day. Make it all count.
