A little something...

It was a stressful day - busy at work and I had a headache all day long. In the afternoon I started getting a scratchy throat. There's so much going around right now but I don't think I'm getting sick. We're expecting another snowfall and it's been gloomy and wet all day long. I think spring needs to find its way to Wisconsin.

I didn't get any writing done today but I will be back in force tomorrow. The brick-by-brick method of writing seems to be working well.

And, as promised, here are a few recent scrapbook pages.

By the way, that's Milo's injury three weeks after being bitten.

February 21, 2008


So far this week I've managed to keep most of my goals. I've been writing, I've been scrapping and I've even managed to submit some of my work to magazines. I learned about a blog aggregator and got that set up...woohoo! I also listed some of my scrapbook supplies on eBay. I hope to clear out some that I will not use. One of the things I haven't gotten to is getting my paperwork together for taxes. I'd like to do get them completed soon, so it's at the top of my list now.

The winter weather has been awful. If it's not bitterly cold it's snowing. Hubby hasn't been able to work much this winter and the long-term loss of income has been felt by us. I'm still working on his house-husband training...ha!

I've had two deaths in the extended family this week. It has hit my siblings and parents hard, and has also brought back some feelings of loss from Pam's death. It is hard to believe it's been almost 2 years now. It has reminded me how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken away.

Korbin's having more trouble at school the past few days - specifically with a substitute teacher. He'd been doing much better recently so hopefully this is just a bump in the road. I so do not like getting calls from the principal!

I've created some lovely pages lately but haven't posted them here. You can check them out on ScrapFriends, otherwise I'll try to get some posted for you within the next few days.

THURSDAY THOUGHTS - Having your cake and eating it too! I'll take seconds please!

I woke up thinking today was Thursday so here are my Thursday thoughts!

I have had a goal of writing for so long now and it just never seems to happen. It is hard to find the balance when I have two passions that take up a considerable amount of my time and energy. I had a revelation of sorts yesterday while reading The Writer's Digest. The theme of the article was "If you lay one brick every day you will eventually create a wall" (my analogy, not theirs). How hard is it to take 15 minutes out of a day to focus entirely on that passion? It won't be much but it'll be something and that's a lot more than I'm doing right now.

Since I'm so goal driven I have decided to e-mail a small group of people to receive my daily writings. It may not be much more than a paragraph some days but my reader's group will keep me motivated and on task. I chose people who have been very helpful to me in the past or whose opinions I have great respect for. If you have not received an e-mail from me but are interested please let me know. I will limit the amount of people I share with for obvious reasons. My reader's group has no obligation to comment on my writing at all, but I hope they do, and most of all, I hope they kick my butt into gear when I need it.

As far as scrapping goes, I have become quite comfortable with my current responsibilities and routine. I have also become more confident in my work and that means less of a need for competition. If something awesome comes along I'll consider it but I'm not going to go bananas about every opportunity that presents itself. I had a premonition last week about my future scrapbooking and if that comes true I will be just where I want to be. ;)

Right now I'm eating a large slice of chocolate cake, eating the batter from the bowl and scooping frosting out of its tub and into my mouth--metaphorically of course, and it is yummy!! Who knows what tomorrow may bring? For today, I'm going to have my cake and eat it too!

One Little Word - CREATE

This week's One Little Word is CREATE. There are so many ways to interpret that. My focus this past week has been how to make myself prettier. You know, it's one of those things that you never see yourself as pretty as everyone else sees you? This is *not* me. It was cut out from a popular fashion magazine. This woman looks beautiful to me, not only that but cool & confident too. It makes me want to be better.

Full title reads: If I could create this look, would you call me beautiful?
and the little journaling by her butt reads: "tall, thin & blonde"
