Um, Yeah....What Blog?

No, I actually did not forget I have a blog!

Even though it seems that way!

Not sure what's going on. Too much time on Face Book I suppose. At least that's one reason...something else taking up my time.

But really, I just haven't had much blogging inspiration lately. Actually, I haven't had much of ANY inspiration lately it seems.

Not really sure why. January was great. February was blah. Maybe it was the winter blues? But I've had very low motivation to do anything! And I'm not happy with myself about that!

But I came to a little bit of a realization the other day. January was happy - and I was doing lots of scrapbooking and card making. For some reason, when February came around, I didn't get around to any of that. And I just wasn't as happy!

A few days ago, I sat down and stamped some images and started coloring them in to make some cards. And all of a sudden, I felt happy! I'm NOT was like my happy endorphins kicked in, and there's been a bit more of a spring in my step!

So, I told my husband that apparently need to make myself work on my stuff more often, to keep those happy endorphins going! So, maybe I'll start posting on my craft blog again too...I really can't believe how long it's been since I posted something there!

So...not too terribly much is new. I'm running again. After a good start last fall and then nothing over the holidays, I'm back. I was so mad at weight crept back up, and I was like a slug.

So I decided to get serious again. And I made a commitment to myself to get healthy, once and for all. And I'm feeling much better.

I'm running my first 5K on the 28th of this month. I am very excited! And I'm SO hoping that I'm actually going to be ready. I mean, I'm doing it whether I'm truly ready or not, but I want to run the entire thing, and not end up walking too much of it! I'm not concerned about the time I finish it in, but that I can just run the whole thing. I'll work on increasing my speed on the next one!

It just feels good knowing I'm doing something good for my body. And I've seriously changed my eating habits. And...the scale has started moving in the right direction again, so I'm quite happy about that!

Let's see...well, I was planning to post my pictures for my Project 365, but obviously that hasn't happened! I'm not going to go back and post all the ones I've taken since the last post...I might pick a few and share. And I probably won't try to post every single one for the rest of the year here either. But I will share a lot of them.

I just got notice today that my kit has FINALLY shipped! I was so irritated in January. I was sure it was on the way. I mean, I had received notice that it was! So I finally called customer service only to find out there was a mistake, and that it was processed as a backorder. That would not have irritated me if they had bothered to let me know! Anyway...I was told that they would have them in mid February, and they would ship then. February was gone, and I decided to just not worry about it, that I probably would end up not getting one. Then, yesterday I received an email saying they were shipping! And today I got another one saying it was shipped, complete with a tracking number! So, it really is on the way! Now I just need to get pictures printed so I can start putting it together!

Well, this is getting long, so I suppose I should sign off. And I really will try to blog more than once a month again. Wait a minute...I didn't blog at ALL in February! So, I've already beat last month! LOL!

Seriously, I will try to quit neglecting this thing.

Now I'm going back to trying to pay attention to American Idol. I'm so under impressed so far this season. I'm getting bored, and the final 12 aren't even completely decided! Oh dear. Ok...that is all for now.


  1. getting healthy and finding more "me" time will be wonderful for you!

  3. Hope you are getting lots of time to get those happy endorphins going! And good luck with your 5k.
