Follow up on Blog Block

I would be glad to post more often if I could only remember to come on in!
As for last week's blog, I actually have made progress! I decided I would give myself permission to tear up a little whenever I felt like it. I can be a sentimental Momma if I choose!
I started the grad party planning, decided I would have a party whether Son wanted one or not hahaha.
Worked on my website, which is totally empty :( because I haven't listing anything new in FOREVER shame on me. I took a bunch of pictures, and editted them. Only to lose the first listing I tried to post (operator error)! Well, try and try again...
Made lots of Art; in the form of graduation cards for several of my son's friends; I will miss them all as they drift away to the 4 corners of the world (or the 4 corners of the UNC college system)
My next project is going to finish a recycled journal I began in a workshop at Inspired a few weks ago. I loved the class, but it will be a work in progress.
Pendants for Imaginese
Pendant-special order
Secret birthday present for friend (late)
get through graduation party start cooking and buying NOW

Blog Block

Hello, Blog. It's been awhile. I'm a little ashamed how out of touch we've been. A bit of discipline is all I need. Since i've never been a journal keeper, it's still tough to sit down and bang out a blog entry. I never had a pink diary with a tiny key to hold my secret thoughts. I am much more of a list maker than a writer.
1.Graduation is approaching for my youngest son. Plan the party.
2.Think about whether I will tear up or just be happy at the Grad ceremony.
3.Plan the trip to said son's college for overnight orientation. Will I cry?
4.Find a few craft shows to apply for; the blow to my ego from being rejected by
Lazy Daze still stings a little.
5.Finally decide on a color for the powder room and paint it. It's not gonna happen
on it's own.
6.Website. Do it. Enough said.

Maybe I should have been saving my lists all these years. Looking at my to do lists does allow me to look at what's going on in my life when I read between the lines.
My Blog may need to adapt to a laundry list rather than a composition.
Let's see how this works...
