I finally have my list of 39 things to do before I'm 40 (a la Spud) and I'm very disappointed to realize that I can't think of more things I need to do. As of right now I only have 27 items listed, and the last one doesn't count (the list is on my side bar). I mean, I could say I want to give back to the community, but that's nothing new for me. I'm already
in over my head involved with Habitat for Humanity, the Junior Service, and Hope Animal Rescues. I've been with these organizations for a couple years now, and taking on another wouldn't do any of us any good because I barely have time to do what I've already committed.
In that same vein, I'm feeling very overwhelmed. I'm trying to do this NoMoSlackMo (a redo if NaNoWriMo) and I'm just not feeling it so far. I have a couple ideas, but can't get the story moving. It's blah blah blah. I need some action baby. In addition, I'm totally intrigued with art journaling (a la the Fragrant Muse). I even went out and bought a brand new journal, but I haven't had time to either artify the journal or write in it. Speaking of paper, Barb bought me a paper making kit for my birthday. I love it because I've been wanting to make my own notecards, but now I have one more thing I don't have time for. So far I've only made 1 new sheet of paper, and it's still sitting right where I left it to dry. The other thing that isn't new but that I've been trying to be better at is cooking more meals at home. It's just so easy to grab Quizno's or suggest we go out (or my fave, get the kids subs and have hubby take me out somewhere fancy). The other project I'm tackling is the flickr 365 in 2010 challenge Julochka and Spud started. I've gotten four pictures in four days, so I just need to stick with it another 361. In addition to that, my google reader is about to bust. Aggghhhh!
Okay... deep breaths... it'll get done, I just need to prioritize.
This wasn't very random, was it? Okay, well here is some randomness. I had a bad hair day today. It would have sucked, but I turned it into a fabulous hat day. Jaunty, oui?
While I'm sitting here being all jauntified Barb is writing an amazing post. Go see. Go on. I'm done here. GO NOW.
