Back to the Daily Grind

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.

Thank GOD!!

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?

I forgot Facebook existed for a long while...and rarely check blogs anymore.

When the hubsters gets back, I want to do the sex every day thing. lol I had wanted to try it before....even during visits from Aunt Flo! (

I LOVE your art journal page!! It so rocks!!

I love your resolu- I mean, positive changes for the year!! I'll be checking in to make sure you and the hubby are on track. Gotta keep that man happy so he won't mind you being on the phone with me the rest of the day... lol

Ashley said...

Omg. Every night?! that's just crazy talk. I can't let my fireman find out or he may want to become YOUR fireman. He'd looove your *plan*.

Debbie said...

Aren't you the optimistic one! I say go for it. You are only young once and not long enough.

Love your layouts. I'm actually doing a bit of scrappin' here on the Big Island.

Half-Pint; you need to place a "Parental Advisory" on this kind of stuff. In this case, meaning "Parents are advised NOT to read." You're GROUNDED! Dad

Haha! YOU GOT GROUNDED!!! Sisters don't wanna think of brothers doing that either. I mean, you don't, right? I bet IF you did he would love that though. :o) Those are totally my plans when Mark is home on leave only more than once a day. :o)

Denise said...
