sorry about that.
i'm sure you have (not really) been wondering what the heck happened to me, and the truth (excuse) is that i have just been lazy. well, busy... and too lazy to sit at my computer to do anything productive (or anything that wasn't frontierville... did i just admit that?)
anyway. i have missed all of you (especially ty. yes, i said it.) so i just decided to bite the bullet and quit dreading the "catch up" and just write something.
|that's supposed to be a razorback lol|
so, in the time i've disappeared, i have gone to two christmas parties, ditched one, baked and decorated christmas cookies for the first time in a while, made it half way to a "scentsational start" with scentsy (whoo hoo!!), and mentally checked out of work. i have not really done a lot of productive things, but i DID start something amazing.
organizing my life.
you should do it. don't ask me how i found the fly lady site, but i'm glad i did. i poked around a little and found her "baby steps" to avoiding CHAOS (can't have anyone over syndrome). it has just made my little day. i signed up for a daily digest of her emails which includes a 'flight plan' for the next day; an area to focus on, a mission to accomplish, and a little clutter clearing. i just love it.. mainly because i am a neat person BUT i sometimes get overwhelmed with the little things that get overlooked. i love that i am now creating some HABITS to keep life in order instead of the out-of-hand mess it wants to be. for example, here was today's flight plan (in a nutshell--and paraphrased of course): go through the personal hygiene ridiculousness in your bathroom (this week's zone is the main bathroom and guest room); spend 5 minutes decluttering. easy. but i'll admit, i wouldn't do it on my own. go to flylady.net. try not to be overwhelmed. she has a great philosophy.
tomorrow we're leaving for arkansas. *dancing* this is the reason i've been checked out.. i can't wait to see my mommy and daddy. and megan. and my pledge sisters. i'm going to miss seeing the ocean and the sun though, i already know that. but a visit to my folks is long overdo.
so there's my life in 5 minutes. hope i didn't bore you to death. i promise i will try to promise to write while i'm on vacation (and yes, i meant to write it that way).
happy trails friends.
