a list

  1. I was listening to a podcast (Elise Gets Crafty) on Friday, and the guest was saying how it drives her crazy when bloggers write every few months, and each post says how they are going to better. And I realized that's me quite often. Oops.
  2. I've been watching city.ballet. Have you heard of it? I find the world of professional ballet very interesting, and I like a lot of behind the scenes type of things so this show is right up my alley.
  3. I had dinner with a friend a few weeks ago, and we got to talking about marriages, and getting married young vs. a little bit older. She got married for the first time when she was 21, and completely regrets it. Of course, the @#$@% guy cheating on her has a lot to do with it. She remarried a couple years ago, and we both have realized that there are quite a few things we have done that we couldn't have if that first marriage had worked out, and if I had gotten married right out of high school like I kind of thought I would.
  4. After reading this, I want to quit my job and move to Vermont to work for Ben & Jerry's. A slide? Taking home three pints of ice cream every day? Count me in!!
  5. Ok, my work does spoil us at times, too. Staff Appreciation Week was last week, and we got a catered breakfast and lunch, gift card, a mini glass globe, and a fiesta. It's always such a fun week!
  6. I wrote about dangerous brownies last year. The last time I baked them was a day or two before my dad passed away, and I haven't wanted them since. It's funny how you associate food with memories, good or bad.
  7. If you happen to read my other blog, you may remember this post about a little schedule I set for myself. It worked great for a while, and I actually accomplished quite a bit, (several things from this list have been crossed off!) but then life happened and I haven't really followed my plan for a while. I'm thinking I need to revamp it a bit. 
  8. I think someone needs to invent something that will transfer my thoughts directly to a computer. :) I think of things I want to write about while I'm getting ready for work, or while I'm at work, working on things that don't require my full attention - not exactly times when I can stop what I'm doing and write. And then when I do have a chance to write, I don't remember what I wanted to write about. I'm old! 
  9. I can totally relate to this
  10. "Everything you want is on the other side of fear." - Jack Canfield I need to work on this.
