So I've been blog hopping today. I truly love hopping, meeting new people, reading interesting articles and stories, and laughing and sometimes crying.
What happens though is that I get incredibly random. I read a blog and immediately start organizing in my head. Or cooking. Or crafting. Or writing. Or taking photographs.
Unfortunately since I have three to four two to three hour periods during the day to work with, I usually get all excited and then go to bed at the end of the day disappointed in myself for not really getting any of those things I wanted to get done....actually done.
Put it on paper (or monitor) and force myself to look at it.
Maybe this will motivate me to work at it when I'm actually awake instead of sitting here at my desk reading and getting even more ideas that I won't finish or will probably forget after my next nap.
Yes, I feeling a bit sorry for myself today. I want the energy and stamina and all that wakey wakey stuff you guys seem to have in spades. I'd like to stay awake for dare I say five or even six hours at a time! Bleh.
I'm not going to let a little sleep stop me though, so here's the list of things I want to get accomplished this week.
Finish decorating the house for Christmas.
Pack up or throw out at least two boxes of stuff I love but don't need anymore.
Put away the Halloween decorations sitting in the spare room.
REALLY really clean my kitchen and get rid of some stuff in there too.
Write at least one new chapter in my Chase novel.
Revamp my Writing blog.
Finish my owl ornaments and planner.
Work on the tile coasters me and my daughter are making for gifts.
Put away laundry which requires cleaning out my closet.
I think that's probably enough, don't you? Baby steps and all? With the daughter working now, I'm going to have to get use to having less help from her, which is going to suck. Big time. But hey, maybe this will be the motivation I need. Some nice comments from friends urging me on, daring me to reach for the stars? Even if I wind up with space dust in my mouth.
