A Fresh Start

I can't imagine that I am the only one in this big ol' world that has great dreams and never actually gets going on them.

I mean, I have been writing a column for my local weekly newspaper for awhile now. Since October of 2017, I think, so what, about a year? I keep thinking I should use those columns to post to my blog.

But I've yet to do that.

A year.

So today I decided to give it a fresh start. I updated my blog a bit, got myself a domain (a .com thingy, I guess) and here I am, writing an intro. I've got nearly a year's worth of stories to post, so that is a good start. I should be able to come up with more as I continue to write for the local paper.

I think about it. I dream about it. I make plans. And then I let them slide. Another day, maybe, I'll get at it. It all takes time, you know. And I've got other things to do. I think that is my biggest problem. I have so many things I want to do. I like to sew. I like to paint. I like to make greeting cards. I like to read. I like to bake. I like to nap. I like to pray. I like to pet my kitties. I also work part time as a waitress. I am a custom framer, working from my home. I am a wife of 36 years.

My children are grown up and gone from home, but I'm still a mom, so there's that. I'm a daughter and my mother lives nearby and I spend time with her on a regular basis.

I like to write letters. I sell my handmade products on etsy and at local fairs.

So there are always things to do. It's just a matter of finding time to squeeze everything in.

Eventually I'll get stuff done. And what I don't get done, oh well. That's the way it goes.

Ta ta for now! I'll be posting again soon!
