I keep putting off the things I enjoy the most because those are the things I want to spend the most time on. I put off blogging because I want the perfect post; I put off e-mailing friends because I want to have it be the perfect e-mail; I put off reading the classics because I know they'll always be there; and I put off going away for the weekend with my husband because it's just not the right time. NO MORE...maybe...probably. This is how I spend
Yep, playing Farmville. I mean, seriously, if I don't play Farmville how will I get extra pig slop??? See where I'm coming from? I thought so. I am making a few
minor major changes around here and I wanted you to be the first to know:
Number 1 - I'm NOT perfect (hence the name of the blog) and I'm not
hopefully waiting five weeks between blog posts. I don't like long posts anyhow. If I go to a blog and it's VERY long and goes on and on infinitum, I skim it and move on. We're all so "busy", remember? (eye roll) Short, sweet, boom, done.
Number 2 - I will take control of my e-mails
probably. You know as well as I do some of these people become our very close friends and I enjoy doing that. I received an e-mail from a friend just last week and it was the sweetest thing - just a basic "here's what's been going on in a nutshell - hope you're well" type of thing and my first thought was, 'Why can't I do that??' My e-mail looks like this...
'Why, Beth, you must be head of the CIA or an important inventor or the president of something very important!!' you're thinking. No, Bath & Body Works and Lands' End just really really like me and want me to stay up-to-date. Good bye, dumb ads
that I signed up for, you're part of my changes. Ta ta!
Number 3 - I'm going to do my back exercises. That has nothing to do with blogging or e-mail but I figured I'd just throw that out there.
Number 4 - I've already started this...I'm going back to reading some of the classics. I just finished "To Kill a Mockingbird" which I read in high school but didn't remember, and am now reading "Anne of Green Gables". That girl's a hoot!
Finally, Number 4 - I'm going to enjoy this beautiful fall season! I'm not a big decorator but I like the fall colors so much and I'm a candle fanatic so I put those things together any time the weather begins to change. Hopefully I'll spend more time in Blogland and visiting my favs. I still don't really know how to do that - I know there's a "reader" with Google, right? I usually just type in the name of the blog and go there - there's GOT to be a better way!!
I hope you're having nice weather wherever you are and getting things on your "to do" list finished.
