I've been working on my goal list for Mission 101 2009.  I have about 83 goals written down so far, some of which I've posted here.  I won't post the entire list until I finish it so hopefully that will be tomorrow.  Who'd have thought coming up with 101 goals would be so hard?  After looking over the list, it appears so selfish to me.  I should have working toward world peace or ridding the world of hunger as my goals but no.  Mine include painting the living room walls and organizing my photos.  Maybe the world hunger thing is on someone else's list.  ;)

My goal for tomorrow will be to finish my list and post it here. 

Silly Post

I hate to post something silly so that I'll make my NaBloPoMo goal of posting every day but it appears that's what I'm doing.  I'm feeling like a bee-yotch tonight so it's safer to say very little.  Listening to NIN right now, munching on Reese's Puffs.  The FDA said to stay away from all peanut butter but I'm not overly concerned about the cereal.  This feels like a stream of consciousness post; like I'm typing whatever pops into my head.  You know, I don't want my userpic to show up on every entry but I've changed the style to reflect that and it still shows up.  Grrrr! 

Ack!  It's almost midnight.  Must click Post to indya42!!!

Party Over Here!

My family is over and we're having a good time!  :)  Spaghetti dinner, RockBand, wine, board games, kitties being cute, more wine... Ah, good times.  I don't have time to post more now but I will tomorrow.  Have a good night all! 



Family is coming over, pets must go to the vet... I'm looking forward to the weekend but right now, with my eyes drooping and my head bobbing, I can think of only one thing............................................sleep.  Sorry, I promise to post more tomorrow.

Another Meme?

Call me crazy but I joined another meme today.  Somebody's got to stop me.  This one is called "Wordful Wednesdays."  The idea is to post one picture and then talk about it.  Sounds simple, huh?  I guess we'll find out next Wednesday when I give it a go. 

I have not yet finished coming up with my 101 goals for Mission 101 2009.  I've been so busy and when I sit down at my laptop after 9:00 p.m., I've barely started typing when I find myself waking up because the heat from the laptop has almost burned a hole in my forehead.  I know, I know, just a bunch of excuses.  I promise to get them finished by the end of the weekend.  It's not like anyone really cares but I'm determined to get this done.

I'm still having centering pictures in my sidebar since I changed to this template.  I have a few badges, banners and other pics I'd like to add but they look kind of silly all flush to the left.  Hopefully, I'll figure it out soon.

My sister and her family are coming to stay with us this weekend and I'm so excited.  The rest of the family will be coming over Saturday night for dinner and it promises to be a good time.  I can't remember the last time we all got together when there wasn't a holiday to celebrate or emotional upheaval to deal with so the weekend should be almost stress-free.  I say "almost" because there is housecleaning to be done.  ;)

Okay, I'm off to look at some new backgrounds for Rudigirl's World.  Toodles!

Artist Update

Please stop over at Texty Ladies on Thursday, 1/15, for an update on artist Kathy Ostman-Magnusen.  I featured her work at TL back in May of 2008 and it's time to see what she's been up to. 

A Quick Update

Just a quick update tonight.  I've posted my first Simply Kind Tuesdays post at A Touch of Inspiration tonight and I'll try to finish up my 101 goals so I can get them posted tomorrow or Thursday.  We're almost halfway into the month and I should have had my list completed by now. 

Between my husband, son, kittens and me, we have appointments every night this week and we've also got to get the house clean for company this weekend.  So much to do, so little time... you know how it goes. 

I hope to steal some time in the next few days to check out the blogs of other people participating in NaBloPoMo this month.  It's always fun to see what blog ideas people come up with.

Okay, I'm off finish a few things up before bed.  Goodnight!


I've had such fun this last week surfing from one art blog to the next, getting inspired and motivated to be more creative.  With the tendonitis in my right hand acting up the past few days, I haven't been able to draw but it's feeling a bit better now so I'll give it a try tomorrow or Wednesday.  I'm so amazed by the art I've discovered.  People are so talented, it makes me wonder where it all comes from and did I receive a sprinkling of that magic talent fairy dust? I'm going to try to dig up some of my old drawings and hope that will give me some confidence...or not.  I remember by high school art teacher saying I had the talent and abilities of someone much older than myself.  Can that talent be lost forever if it's not utilitized and nourished?  Let's hope not!

I'm off to sleep now.  May you all have a warm, wonderful Tuesday!


My Other Posts

Just a quick post tonight.  I've posted my first Sacred Life Sunday blog at A Touch of Inspiration and I did a short post over at Rudigirl's World.  I'm falling asleep as I type and I still have to do a load of laundry, pay some bills, and color my hair and have only the next hour to do get it all done.  I hope you'll have a look at my other blogs and I'll post more here tomorrow.  Good night!
