Because Life Gets In The Way

It's been a while since I've posted anything. Lets be honest, I'm a terrible blogger but I am on a mission to fix that.

I don't know about you but I seem to have a million and ten things to do and I can't ever seem to get ahead of them. My life is a cartoon. I'm the little unsuspecting pup that wondered onto the mountainside property of a ski resort, knocked over a shovel which haphazardly set a kinetic reaction of elements ultimately leading to an avalanche (we'll get back to that in a moment). Meanwhile I'm minding my own business checking out the sights when just as this freak avalanche heads my way I step on the lid of a trashcan and am carried away by the snow. About half way down that hill, that's where my life exisits. I'm the little unsuspecting pup trapped on the makeshift sled desperately trying to outrun the pile of snow behind me, never quite able to escape it's grasp. I feel like that might also be a recurring dream for me... hmmm.

In an effort to take back control of my ever mounting pile of tasks and projects, I am prioritizing the things *I* want to do. One of which is this poor little blog which I have neglected for far too long. I actually have a folder on my desktop labeled 'Blog'. It's where I store and save all the little tidbits I want to share with the world. My little 'Blog' folder is not so little anymore and I am feeling a bit bad for not giving it the attention it deserves.

A few of my many projects I am making an effort to pay more attention to...
The crochet blanket I started on a recent road trip and haven't touched since we got home
Start my scrapbook from our 4th anniversary trip to Graceland
Finish my scrapbook from our honeymoon! (I'm not scrapbook savvy so these may take a while)
Attack my pile of mending and alterations (I tend to buy things that would look way better with a few minor 'fixes')
Finish the photo installation in our master bedroom (I'm about 1/2 way there)
Order fun new samples for the studio
Watch (or delete) the 80+ episodes of shows on my DVR yada yada yada...

This list could go on for days, I know, I have it jotted down in about fifty different places around my office and house. So why am I starting with my poor little neglected blog? Envy. Yep, one of those big bad cardinal sins. A dear friend of mine has been talking about writing a blog for a while and on the 4th of July she started it. She is much wittier than I, has impeccable taste and I enjoy reading about the 'brain messages' she receives on her 'antenna'. You'll just have to see for yourself.
