So the holidays are over, a new year has begun, and it's time to get back into a daily routine involving alarm clocks and schedules.
Seriously, I SO NEED my schedule back....I feel like I've done NOTHING for weeks. I can't entirely blame the internet, though the addicting games on MySpace and Facebook haven't helped me to stay on task in the slightest. So yeah, I'm totally blaming the internet.
I HAVE managed to get a few layouts done, this one for GutterGirlz...
...and this one for Lotus Paperie:
But I haven't been on Tally in days, I haven't started Maggie's quilt yet, I can't remember the last time I've read my bloglist, and my own blog has been seriously neglected! So I've come up with a plan. I won't call it a New Year's Resolution, but since it IS a new year, this plan could easily be mistaken for a resolution. Which it is NOT.
Anyway, I digress. My plan, starting tonight, is to make a list of the things I'd like to accomplish the next day. THEN, (and this is KEY) I'll set an ALARM to wake me before noon so I can get a shower and most of my list done before the little boys wake up. It's a great plan, a SOLID plan, and the reason it's NOT a resolution is because I'm not going to abandon my plan in early February. Here are some of my other plans for building a better ME:
1. Save up for a second-hand treadmill to run on each morning before my shower.
WARNING, some may consider the sharing of this next facet of my plan to be TMI:
2. Be intimate with my hubby every night. Yes, EVERY night. (Well, barring menses, since that's disgusting. Hey, don't say you weren't warned.)
3. My art journal. I've missed it so. I'm taking part in some new challenges this year, one for each letter of the alphabet. Rachel is hosting the prompts (on the 1st & 3rd Mondays of each month) on Tally, AND on a new blog you can find HERE. This is what I came up with for the first prompt, ACTION:
All right, that's all I've got so far. How about you? Have you made any resolut- uh, I mean, positive changes recently? I'd love to hear how your holidays went and I promise to keep in touch more often....say, before taxes are due?
