When I said yes to making 100 blog entries by March 25, I didn't stop to consider that I'd fall short of ideas within the first two weeks. And this being the end of the year, and right before christmas, I'm busier than I'd like to be. I'd love to stare at the ceiling for an hour and come up with brilliant blog ideas which would inspire you, and cause you to do something wonderful daily. A girl can dream, right?
My darling mentor told me to blog about my "life in small little bits." Since I didn't start blogging regularly again until just 13 days ago, I'm going to do my year in review, by month. I have about 12 days left of the year, right? No? Oh. Ask anyone; I suck at math.
Since I have no recollection of anything specific, I'll start by going to Facebook's activity log, since my the loaded calendar died with my previous phone. Damn! I played a sh!t-ton of games of Words with Friends. Ok, that's a little surprising. I mean, I know I love to play it, but damn. I mean, DAMN! Maybe I should cut back? That would certainly gain me some free time, right?
Next, I see that we had Husband and I had our annual holiday party, and we made a lot of stuff "on a stick." Bacon-and-date something on a stick, chicken-something on a stick, and cheesecake-something on a stick. That reminds me, I need to schedule next month's party soon. And have a snack too; I'm hungry.
My amazing friend Dyana Valentine posted this TEDxOjai video about not being sorry that got me to thinking. Good advice there. I always look forward to being around her, even if it's only once a year. Her energy is orange-zest-zingy and catchy!
I finished fighting with Progressive insurance about an accident their insured driver caused. I lost. I think that's all I'm going to say about that. Ugh.
I found out late in the month that my mother planned for 8 months to move away, but didn't tell me until 8 days before she planned on leaving. Yeah, I don't think I want to say anything else about that either.
Ooo, more happy stuff, good! A musician friend, whom I love dearly, wrote a song just for me. Just 'cause he can. That was a great way to end the month, being appreciated.
Thanks for reading,
p.s. Your good juju today: Time to reflect? Time to let others know they're appreciated? Absolutely!
Good juju-spreader, storyteller, graphic designer. I'd love to hear from you!
